The End Of The World Comes To Snodland.

I was hoping to get some shots of the carnival and funfair this month but it was very crowded which was good for Snodland and the stall holders but didn't make for any artistic photographs, sorry!  Some of the amazing skies we've had lately anyone would think the end of the world is coming.  Here's a photo taken in my back garden last night.....

I also took this photo in the recreation ground the other day.  I see we have a new play area too.

Is this bench running downhill?  I think it's an optical illusion.


Bench, Snodland


Scruff has been up to his normal tricks, a bit of warm weather and he lays in any water or mud he can find to cool himself down.

I normally leave him to clean himself up but on this occasion I had to shower him down or he would have rubbed it all off on the furniture.

Lots of damselflies about down the lakes and marshes at the moment and I managed to blunder in on a very personal moment with my camera.


Mating Damsels


I see they've boarded up the Snodland train signal box, I wonder how many years that has been there.  The end of an era and a sign of the times.

What happened to the caravan at the Wimpy drive thru?  Although there's nothing left of the Wimpy now apart from that pile of rubble.

That's July for you, If I see anything exciting I'll photograph it and show you.


Pink Cars And Cemeteries.

I was wandering past the cemetery this week and noticed a pink car and I decided it would make a good photo.  A bright pink cheering up a sad place, what do you think?  If you own the car and would like a print you can contact me via the website.

Nice to see the sun out this week and it made a good background for Scruff to pose in this photo taken around Brookland's Lake.

We have had some rain which brought the snails out and kept them happy, this one saw me and decided to hide until I put the camera away.


Go Away!


It doesn't matter how often I walk down the Holborough Marshes I always enjoy the scenery.  Sometimes I struggle to find things new to photograph but the river looks so different every time you see it.


River Medway, Snodland.


Strawberries are out in my garden if I can get to them before that pesky snail up above.


Strawberry on white.


I took a photo of a flower and berries a few days back and it wasn't until I researched it that I found it to be Deadly Nightshade or one of that family.  Who would believe what grows wild around Snodland eh.


Deadly Nightshade


Last but not least, this is a tiny flower and when researched it turned out to be Scarlet Pimpernel.

Finishing with that bit of summer colour.  I'll update when I get something interesting guys.

See you soon.
