A dreary day but a great day out

21. A photograph of me with a sign reading "2015 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt"
The title page of the album for this year - good grief I have just looked at the junk heap
behind me!

16. Apanoramic view, taken while standing somewhere high in the air. I don't do high. I get vertigo standing on a chair
I live in South Wales where we specialise in steep-sided valleys so this is
a Welsh panoramic vista complete with low flying clouds. The reason our valleys are so green is because
the mountains rip the bottoms out of the clouds and they leak all over the place

15. A flagpole with at least three flags on it. Only it isn't. it is actually a mast and a separate flagpole behind it
- at least thirty yards behind it. The perspective makes them look close together and the zoom lens on my
trusty Lumix (did you know it has a Leica lens?) gave the illusion. Driving up the road that is actually between
the two poles showed me that I could not cheat. This opne is going to be difficult

13. A Merry go round or carousel. Thrilled to get this one, not able to stop because this is Barry Island
on a Thursday afternoon during the high holiday season. For thos that watched Gavin & Stacey it might seem a little familiar as this is the promenade at Barry, where they would get on or off the bus. This shot taken at 20mph through the passenger window

Another shot of the same Merry go round. This time at about 5mph through the driver's window. Mr M aas a bonus in the picture. What you cannot see is the fine rain that is falling from all those ripped clouds

I enjoyed seeing all your photos and laughed that you have trouble with heights as much as I seem to, also. You have some gorgeous ones, and I really like how you captured the carousel.

I once asked a lady if I could take photos in a chain store because I was documenting my day. She told me the company didn't allow ANY photos and I told her I had not heard of that before. I'm glad you got the photo of the two grocery clerks before you asked. That's what I should have done!

I love your comments about South Wales and your flagpole!

Love the comment about the clouds "leaking" their moisture to create the beautiful green shown in your photos! What a good collection!

You really have a way with words! I often smile when I visit you (witty and pithy), and today I love your comment about the leaking clouds ... Great photo :).
