Welcome to another Photo a Day Collection! There is no great overarching theme set by Fat Mum Slim again this month, and as things were busy I’m taking it easy.
I was away from home at the end of the month.
Sept 1st – This is Super Duper
Well, this month started off with a tricky one: and so I dove into the archive to find this super street art of a Super Hero… I found this in Berlin in 2018 when I was there for the International Fascial Research Congress.
Sept 2nd – Round
A round mirror with a subtle selfie. I had the great pleasure of seeing the Anish Kapoor exhibition at Houghton Hall. This was one of the pieces.
Sept 3rd – Photography
Photography is about capturing moments in time, like this lady taking a photograph of the Anish Kapoor mirror.
Sept 4th – Sugar
Sugar, flour, butter and almonds combine to make a crumble topping. And a fortunate heartshape too.
Sept 5th – Colour play
I didn’t have much time on this day, and little inspiration. The top left is the original photo of one of my orchids, the others are playing around with various colour filters on my phone.
Sept 6th – Myself
Sept 7th – Rings
Rings of sharp blades are hidden under more rings on the razor head.
Sept 8th – Home
Home carried on its back.
Sept 9th – Good stuff
After a busy, and wonderful day at work, I finally managed to get back to the floatation tanks at Floatworks, Angel. It was great, which is why I look a little woozy.
Sept 10th – Life
Life in the undergrowth, a damselfly seen at the Wetlands centre.
Sept 11th – Craft
A ship is a craft that floats on water.
Sept 12th – Tropical
Um, London really isn’t that tropical, so the best was this leaf taken in the tropical greenhouses at Kew.
Sept 13th – Travel
Train travel is a bit different now, and this was a rare opportunity to get a photograph of an empty train (increasingly hard to do as lockdown eases)
Sept 14th – Nook
A nook?!?! Another hard prompt, and a dig into the archive to find this photo of a seat at Fountains Abbey, which just needs a cushion, a few books and a drink for me to relax into for a while.
Sept 15th – Delight
Always a delight to see a bee busy at its business.
Sept 16th – Step
One step after another leads to a set of stairs, these ones lead to a train platform.
Sept 17th – Zingy
This month has quite a few tricky prompts, and I was at a slight loss for ideas but the colours of these homegrown tomatoes are quite zingy (I hope)
Sept 18th – Lines
Lines of a London skyscraper or two
Sept 19th – Alone
Sept 20th – Music
Of a folky sort, taken last year at the Folk by the Oak music festival.
Sept 21st – Shiny
Shiny sculpture, Sky Mirror by Anish Kapoor.
Sept 22nd – Garden
Moving to autumn, these yellow daisy’s really brighten up the garden.
Sept 23rd – Heart
The Mayor of London and Transport for London are spreading the love with these posters. There is a part of me that wishes that we didn’t need reminding to be kind to each other.
Sept 24th – Art
A recent addition to the art in my neighbourhood is this sign for the local train station. Art by Maud Milton
Sept 25th – Better together
Gin, tonic, ice and some garnishes…
Sept 26th – I found this
This elephant (?) was waiting for me to find as I arrived on holiday.
Sept 27th – Duo
A duo of squabbling men, a statue at Studely Royal Water Gardens, Yorkshire.
Sept 28th – Special
Fountains Abbey, where I was on holiday.
Sept 29th – This is clever
I am always blown away by the cleverness of the stone masons of old, building vaulting that lasts the centuries. This is the Cellarium (larder) of Fountains Abbey.
Sept 30th – Design
A sketch by Anish Kapoor, and I’m amazed by how this sketch is the design for his large sculptures…
So that’s it for this month, and I hope you enjoy them. I wasn’t chosen for one of the Fab Four this time round, but I will admit that my Phojo was lacking this month and I wasn’t very inspired.
October is going to be an interesting month and if you can’t wait to see what I’m posting then follow me my Instagram feed. There will be another summary of my photos next month.
Thanks for reading this, my lovely interonauts,
