January 13th. It was a sunny day! All day. No rain at all. So I did the decent thing and offered to walk the dog. Just how the camera and three lenses managed to come with me was a surprise! Anyway, the week3 theme (365:2013) is minimalism. In addition it was very warm and this looks quite summery, meeting the bb52 theme also. So there you go, some cows, in a field. Looking a bit summery, even though it's winter.

Week 2 - the theme for one group is water drop refraction. I have never done this before so this is something new (BB52) for me. Gulp. So I spent a happy half hour taking pictures of wet plants. I may not have the best lens but I certainly have the weather. And look! I was so pleased with this. I thought I would have to spend all week trying to get one. I am using this for this group but another picture for my 365s, which I loved more. However the challenge was great and I am dead chuffed.

This was my other shot. I could see two suns and so did the camera! It was very misty as the sun tried its hardest. I think this echo effect was caused by the window I took the shot through. My eldest said I should post this as I might never get this again. The other is a better pic and fits with theme of tiltshift. However, I have posted this ( slightly late) for the week 3 Glass slipper theme, oh to dream. There is something dreamy about this maybe!

January 27th. Its song lyric theme week for 365:2013. I thought excitedly what a great theme and then I over complicated it .........

I love music, all sorts of music; so I thought should I do a theme (days of the week?), my favourite songs, my favourite band, favourite album? should I do songs that have personal meaning?

And then Sunday happened.

My husband is working this weekend so I am sole parenting. It was rugby this morning - at Perranporth. There is a small nature reserve at the back of the club so I walked round to take some grass shots in the sun (which was lovely). Whilst standing there amongst the rustling grass a song came to mind. It's not at all trendy, nor a classic nor a favourite (when I looked up the lyrics I came across an Elbow song entitled Whisper Grass which would have been much hipper, but hey this is the song I thought of). My UK generation may remember this as a comedy song from the 70s but it was in fact written in 1940. This is the third verse, which is the one I remembered

"Why tell them all your secrets
Who kissed there long ago
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know"

Yes, I am a sad muppet, but I dare you not to sing along

I am also using this for BB52 week 4 "Pockets of Light" as I love the light in the grass heads!

February 4th. Took this this morning. I know it's a classic, but I liked the way the light separated into white below and yellow above, just the way the sun was coming in through the window with the leaf creating a shadow. nothing added in as background. Because it is a shadow I have also put it in to BB52:5 Winter shadows. And because i like it am also using it for my other 52 projects for week 6

I have cranked this up a bit in Snapseed to bring out the colours. But not cropped at all.
