August Break Photo 6: What I'm Reading

So in the first instance I'm reading up on oral history so I can learn more about the subject and become a better oral historian. In the second instance I am reading the ingredients of Beetroot Hummus on a tub offered to me by my friend Anna while picnicking in the park.

August Break Photo 5: Midday

My photo for today is two terrapins sunning themselves on a log in the pond in Tooting Common (I spotted them during a lunch break around 'midday'). These are not a native species to the UK (at least I don't think they are!), so I suspect they may be escaped pets.

August Break Photo 4: Sweetness

My sweet colleague Charlie at her desk, sampling some sweet mango. And I think you'll agree she has a pretty sweet hairstyle too!

It is a YAY Day!

Had an oral history epiphany today! And it was all down to a banjo-playing busker in Balham! More to follow soon.....

August Break Photo 3: Handwriting

Day 3: Handwriting (a letter from my mother showing her curly scrawl!). This time I experimented with my fishbowl lens for my iPhone. I rather like the result!

August Break Photo 2: Leaf

Today's prompt was 'Leaf' and I got very excited at the chance to use my tiny micro lens for my iPhone camera. I chose two plants that live on my window shelf of my kitchen and I love the different textures of these two leaves.

Summer Fun

August Break Photo 1: Morning Light

The first photo of the August Break challenge is 'Morning Light.' This morning's morning light was grey and cloudy. That is London (or even England!) for you! I groggily snapped this black and white photo of the morning light on my sheets.
