My photo for today is of my two sailor dolls. I was taking photos of them for Vanda’s Doll site for a post. Inside the house was much too dark so I decided to take them outside. I set them up on the back steps because then I could lean them up against the wall making them easier for me to pose them. It was afternoon and the sun was very bright. Too bright in fact and it shone on the sailor’s faces making them look rather washed out and sick. I’m thinking they must have been on the booze to get like that.
This was my first attempt to photograph sleet. I thought that I could do it out of the kitchen window as it was not quite dark. Nope! Didn’t work. I had to go and open the back door even though it was probably below zero outside.
If you look very carefully you might be able to make out the daffodils in the flower bed.
It’s time for another bad photo Monday. I had more choices than normal since I’ve been out and about while having Phillip to stay. While we were at Penny Royal we went on a boat ride which is a bit like a ghost train as you travel through dark passages meeting convicts and pirates alike. It’s called the “Matthew Brady Dark Ride” You listen to scary stories as you travel along in your boat. I tried to get some photos inside the tunnel but it was quite dark and I couldn’t get into position to take a good photo while on this ride. Most of the photos didn’t come out very well but I got a couple of half decent shots. This one was a failure because the pirate moved and bowed his head at the wrong moment making him look as if he was having a nap or was totally wasted.
We took the dogs on a drive to the coast and they had a ball on the beach in the lovely sunshine. While we were there I decided to try and get some photos of them. I like to have as many photos of my pets as possible so I snap them when ever I can. Toby is always on the move and he is hard to photograph. I beheaded him in this shot.
Ok so when my batteries went flat I decided to change them over right away even though I was not intending to take any more pictures. We went to a pub for tea so while I was waiting for Phillip to return from ordering our meals I got my my spare batteries out and popped them into the camera. I was about to put it away when as predicted I pressed the button and took a lovely picture of the table and my thumb!’
