Crash Bang Wallop What A Pizza

Did I say pizza? I meant "picture".

I've been away, but I have a note from my mum.

I took a few photos today on a drive round neighbouring Bedfordshire to cover my indolence.


There's still a lot of standing water in the fields, tho Bedfordshire received hardly any compared to some of the western counties. So many are flooded, with no sign of it easing. 


It seems to be Spring, even tho my friends in the States are still up to their noses in snow.


These lads are popping up everywhere.


The view upwards from Dunstable Downs. Must be nice to be up there looking down, too.


There were lots of these "sit down parachutes" being flown. Launched from the ground on an up-gust, they looked pretty amazing.


Not a glamorous subject material, your average fence post. But hey, this one was pretty cool.


It's a boat in a field. Yes, it defies deconstruction. It involved a twenty mile round-trip after I saw this at high speed from the car, and a small amount of harmless trespass, but I had to get this shot.

Thanks for your patience.

New tales soon!

  1. That boat parked under the tree in a field looks like it belongs in your book. Did you check for engineer badgers?

    1. Hey Delores! Lovely to see you here again. The young badgers would have loved it, I'm sure. You know, I mentioned this to a load of folk today, and one horsey type had some insight. Apparently his uncle had done exactly the same in a field for horses. He filled it with water for the horses, figuring that whatever could keep water out would also keep water in. Now, that's thinking. Indigo x

    2. From what I've read, that sucker is going to be floating in another month or two.

    3. I did wonder if that's how it got there in the first place Murr. It's been rough here. You have snow, we have water.

    1. Oh, you know how it is, Z. It would have nagged at me, and I'd have ended up back there on another day. And it's a long way from home! But thanks, it was worth it =) Indigo x

  3. Spring, how I long for thee. ::sigh::

    Thanks for these groovy photos. They're all terrific and, to be quite frank, didn't help me feel less snowed in at all. ::sigh::

    1. Hey Cheryl! I'm glad you liked 'em, but sad they didn't have the intended effect. I'll pop by with my shovel. Indigo x

    Superb - but if forced to pick, the paraglider is my choice; composition and that slice of yellow against the blue.

    Glad you are getting back into your own equivalent... the Bloglide Throne! YAM xx

    1. Namaste Yam! I too SO many of those damned parachutey things, and this was the only one that was any good. I still have a LOT to learn. Hope to see you soon, Indigo x

  5. I love the purple and yellow flowers. It's almost spring here, but unlikely we will get many wild flowers this year in California due to our drought. I'll just have to enjoy yours.

    1. Hey Jayne! You still have a drought?! This is the main difference between here and there; we have widespread (and very serious) flooding, you guys got the polar vortex. That said, I hope it stayed far away from your neck of the woods x Indigo

  6. We are at least two months from any bulb production here.
    *gnashes teeth*

    Lovely shots; especially like the fence post. The texture you've caught is wonderful.

  7. Hi Indigo :-) I was shocked to see that you weren't part of the We Work For Cheese writing challenge this month. Hope all is well. Nice photos, I like the isolated blue one best!

    1. Hi Nathanael, nice to see you here. I adore Nicky and Cheesy Mike, but I couldn't take part as a reader or contributor. I don't do the photography challenge any more either. Thanks for the kind words on my photographs, I have a calender of photos out, and as you can see up the top, my first novel! Hope to see you again, Indigo

    1. Hey Alistair, good to see you here old boy. I was hugely saddened to hear of the passing of young Jess. She was a smasher. I hope to be up to see you and the lovely G soon, Indigo
