I've been taking part in Dawbis' Photo Week project. It's been fun and I am looking forward to seeing how everyone else "saw" their week.
Day 1 - The First Thing I saw in the morning - I have shutters in my bedroom so it's pitch dark until I open the shutters so the view from my bedroom window is the first thing that I saw.
Day 2 - Something I want to remember forever! This one was a difficult one - there are so many things - family and friends. But I decided to think more along the lines of something I don't want to ever disappear and so I chose a bookshop. Whilst Amazon is a great place I wouldn't like to think of a time when I couldn't physically visit a bookshop and flick through the pages of a new book....and finding something unexpected on the shelves!
Day 3 - My Feet (sorry it's slightly blurry!)
Day 4 - Take a photo of a stranger - I think I may have cheated somewhat here as I didn't approach a stranger but decided to take a picture of one of the builders who have been working on the building across from my office everyday for the last 6 months or so (it's the oldest building in the City and is currently being renovated into a youth hostel - you will even be able to stay in the room that the bagpipe maker inhabited a couple of centuries ago!)
Day 5 - My Lunch - grapefruit followed by homemade dhal and pitta bread - can you tell I made an effort for the photo! Better than my usual bowl of soup or a sandwich!
Day 6 - The Sky - the weather can change so quickly in Scotland and it was difficult to decide when would be best to take a photo. I decided on dusk....
Day 7 - Self Portrait - I cheated here a little too - a friend actually took it - but only because my camera has been playing up and only taking a photo every 10th time you push the button and my arm was getting sore - oh and because when I finally managed to get a photo I looked awful - surely the camera must have been lying! But this photo was taken on Day 7 whilst I was awaiting the band at a Salsa Celtica concert.
Day 8 - The Last Thing I Saw before entering my home - it's the moon - it's in partial eclipse! You'll probably just have to take my word for it as it doesn't look like much. But now I'm home and there is a total eclipse of the moon and it looks very red!
