Project 365: Week #20

May 17, 2014

This week’s highlight was definitely Bocketts Farm where POD fed the animals herself for the first time. We paid Chilworth Gunpowder Mill a quick visit too. Aside from that its been business as usual with a little macro practice thrown in for good measure!

Welcome to Project 365: week #20.

Day 131 

Today was amazing. We visited Bocketts Farm where POD fed the animals herself for the first time. As you’d expect once she started there was no stopping her – this is the “look the sheep are feeding from my hand” face!

POD also got to handle a rabbit, a chicken, a guinea pig and a goat. As well as hold a two day old lamb *melts*

Day 132 

Monday saw POD back at gymnastics where she was a little overexcited. She refused to nap but did have a pretend sleep in her toy bag.

We saw a rainbow too much to POD’s delight!

Day 133 

The usual routine from today although lunchtime saw a fleeting visit to Chilworth Gunpowder Mill. The Alphabet Photography Project kicked off on Wednesday and I wanted an A is for abandoned photograph. This is one of the millstones from the site which closed in 1930.

Day 134 

Daddy and POD headed to Suffolk today. I found a little time to check out the rhododendron blooms.

Day 135

It’s always great to discover unexpected gems. This apple-like bud is only 2mm high and barely visible to the human eye.

PODcast Thurs

Daddy and POD traveled back from Suffolk. With accidents on the M11 and then the A12, it was a long journey that took over 8 hours. Daddy’s phone battery died, as did the air con, but they returned in good spirits (much to my relief!).

Day 136

It’s been really refreshing to get the macro lens out after so much wind recently. No idea what this is but it’s rather fun!

Day 137

Spotted this little gem while Daddy and a neighbour resolved a boiler issue. Thankfully the hot water supply was restored and we had a lovely day chilling in the garden with my mum.

  • Dad Needs Decaf May 17, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    Absolutely love the photograph in the toy bag; she looks surprisingly comfortable. Great focus in day 135’s photo.

    We have a Millstone just like that sunk into the floor of Water Mill cottage which was the original Mill of Coombe Mill.

  • Kriss MacDonald May 18, 2014 at 2:23 am

    All wonderful photos as usual but my two favourites are Pod pretend sleeping and the incredible macro shot of the tiny apple shaped bud.

  • Actually Mummy... May 18, 2014 at 8:31 am

    I really need to do some more experiments with my macro filters, they’re so much fun.

  • PinkOddy May 18, 2014 at 10:16 am

    Pod is so beautiful they are cute pictures. I am getting a macro lens for my iPhone and may ended up getting a camera. Your photography is very inspiring.

  • LauraCYMFT May 18, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    Lovely flower photography.. You always seem to chose a great angle.

  • Rollercoaster Mum May 20, 2014 at 1:20 am

    I remember going to Bocketts Farm when the kids were smaller. Haven’t been for a while though. I adore your macro pictures and I am soo jealous of your macro lens. My new bridge camera is great for zooming on things in the distance but not so great for macros – I shall persevere though! Oh and I am also off to check out your alphabet photography project – sounds like I may have to add it to my to do list!

  • Angela May 20, 2014 at 4:02 am

    Oh my. My heart just melted with the first three photos, I loved them so much, so cute and so sweet

  • Mummy of Two May 20, 2014 at 11:30 am

    Those farm photos are adorable. It looks like POD had a great time!

  • Elaine Livingstone May 20, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    good grief 2 traffic jams with a child in the car must have been a nightmare. The lamb picture is very cute. I like the black and white abandoned shot, really adds to the ageing effect.

  • Faded Seaside Mama May 20, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    Pod really is adorable – especially that one of her “asleep”! And what amazing macro shots – I really must pay more attention to the plantlife in our garden to see if I can spot anything similar.

  • TheBoyandMe May 24, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    *LOVE* the photo of her asleep in her toy bag, Annie Liebovitz eat your heart out. The flower in day 136 is just wonderful.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.
