I have been doing a bit of blog hopping today and came across the idea for taking one photo a week in black and white. I've not done too much in B&W previously so this is a fine opportunity for me to put good intentions to the test. I also took the opportunity of downloading an app for my phone that allows me to do a bit more editing. So - Week One and photo one:
Aren't you pleased you aren't a duck? Their little feet must be frozen on the ice. This photo was taken at a lake that is about half a mile from our house. The snow has now gone from everywhere but bits of the lake are still frozen. Silly ducks are still congregating on this iced bit because it's close to the path and that's where all the kids like to come down with their bags of bread to feed the ducks. If they weren't quite so greedy, they could walk across a bit and find where the ice had melted!
Back to school for me tomorrow. When we broke up and had 2 weeks holiday, it seemed a nice long time. Suddenly it seems like only yesterday that I was last there. Got to feel a bit sorry for our year 11 girls though, first day back and they are straight in for GCSE Mock exams!
