my kitchen window

not too happy about this exposure - the sky was not white

all these pictures are as is bitmaps made into high res jpg in camare and the compression factor is 3
I am never bored by the endlessly changing cloudscapes

the Kingfisher project park is in the dead ground (a military term for a hidden valley) between the trees and the appartment blocks

looking north east

and from my balcony looking east

I always think I see a faint line beyond the violet - not visible on camera

walking home from shopping

blogger image server is down so a short blog with help from

boys toys in the car park

from the roof that glimpse of water tempted me to walk home

hesitant drake
and it started to rain

weather for ducks

after the rubbish corner

by Bennetts Well School

blossom time at last on the unswept foot path

from the beginning of my walk - the same antenna as the sunrise below - looking south from the car park after shopping in Chelmsley Wood

BHX and IKEA daffodils

I got up just before dawn 22 March 2006 and the sun is just a fraction north of due east

order to see my guest off to Copenhagen from TERMINAL 2 Trident Road

zooming from the long stay car park at BHX Birmingham airport

note the two pitot tubes below the second cockpit window - these sense air pressure from which speed and height are calculated by the instruments

pitot tube - Google Search

up and away at BHX airport long runway

I live in Merton House, one of the three 10 storey blocks of flats to the right (left of the black tipped triple chimneys

B26 3QJ on the corner of the car park by runway 33

first daffodil growing wild seen in Walsall

by the roadside on a south facing bank

very difficult access by public transport with the nearest bustop in Wlasall Road, Darlaston was out of use

half way up the steep bank to the car park at IKEA Wednesbury near Birmingham
