French window 2017 

Jon and I are staying in the French house with the fab view again. I think I am drawn to taking so many photos because I live in a basement in Edinburgh. Dad has had posh double glazed windows put in that open two ways. 

I was amused to find my daughter in the room yesterday taking pictures. I don’t go in for net curtains – but these keep out the bugs and flies so they are allowed …. the changing atmosphere and view is a fascination as you can see below. 


 



I have no desire to paint the images but, can understand why the impressionists painted en plein air – with lots of canvasses to record scenes  at different times of day. 


Sunrise 

In my Edingburgh lower ground and basement flat I can’t  see the sun come up easily without getting dressed and walking down the street.This morning I woke up in in the French house , the birds were singing very loudly and there was a dog barking. I decided to get up and record the sunrise. It was like waiting for a boiling kettle …. I hadn’t realised how many changes the sky could go through. I said to myself , “red sky in the morning”  ….. And now it is pouring with rain. The sky is still pretty in its pink glow. 


The rain is coming in
