What A Day!
Another Wednesday, another Headbanger Challenge. Tom has chosen this week's theme of "what is this"?
Certainly a theme that you could do a lot with. Firstly I thought of taking a close up if some piece of machinery or cooking utensil. Then I wondered if I could adapt one of my photos. But on Monday evening I went to the University's Jubilee Campus for a drama reading for a new play about the history of Raleigh bicycles, which I hope to appear in.
There are quite a few striking and unusual buildings on the campus and this is one of them. It is actually a library and goes by the name of The Sir Harry and Lady Djanogly Learning Resource Centre. It looks quite impressive in the daylight, but when the sun goes down, it takes on a more etherial presence.
For more ideas of what is it, please pop over to the rest of the teams' pages and see what they have come up with, and also enjoy this piece of music.
What a strange day today has been indeed. Strong wind, rain and snow. And sometimes all at the same time!
It's hard to imagine that this time last week, we were all basking in hot sunshine and ice cream sales had gone through the roof. Now it seems the only sales are for umbrellas, hot water bottles and snow shoes.
Here is a shot of Highfields which I took on the way home tonight. At least it had stopped raining when I took it. Normally there are people feeding the ducks and swans, jogging, riding bikes or just enjoying the scenery.
We are planning to go on a helicopter ride on Friday, but if this weather continues, it sadly will probably be postponed.
What's the weather like where you are?
