I walked to the post office this afternoon, it was freezing cold but beautifully sunny. There was a real dearth of dark blues along my suburban route, just some street signs and shop signs and then I walked past this lovely blue fence.
I went to Ashbury Service Station to see what I could find to spice up my dark blues and did indeed shoot the dramatic and impressive graffiti wall but actually found this unassuming scrawl on the wall opposite more interesting!
Just made the midnight deadline with this one as we were at a friends birthday party and I suddenly remembered my daily task and had to rush around looking for something appropriate. Worked out rather nicely in the end!
Today's picture is a close up of a vase which used to belong to my grandmother, it's a big hefty piece of Murano glass which used to endlessly fascinate me when I was little and used to stay with them for weeks at a time during my holidays. I always loved the swirls and blobs of colour and the little sparkly bits. When she died I rescued it from her belongings as I'm the only one who ever liked it. It now sits on a sunny window ledge in my dining room and when the sun flows through it, as it did for a nano-second this morning, it looks beautiful.
