In search of colour - 1


It may be mild weather here but the downside of that is that it's damp, drizzly and incessantly grey.  Short of photos and short of inspiration, I set off in search of some colour in Saltaire... I found it in all sorts of unusual places.  This abandoned Christmas bauble looked like it was suffering a bad hangover, collapsed among the leaves in the gutter.

  1. Certainly a stark contrast. England is a beautiful country but those grey skies would get me down too. I hope you find some 2012 inspiration soon. Show us how your grand baby is growing.
