A Load Of Teen Spirit

Here we go again.

Oh, hush.


Some folk say that my photo style in distinctive. But I say I just want you to be sure you've found the right blog.  


Alistair loves this kind of thing. It inexplicably made me hungry.


I was at the seaside yesterday. This ├╝ber-cute pooch was my first photo of the day. I had to photoshop his lead out, mind. Yes, I like to set them free.  


This is a bird. If it was still in colour, I'd remember what sort it is. I DO remember that it's sitting on a lobster pot, mind. I had a photo of a seagull sitting on a wooden post with the sea behind it that I was going to use at this point. But then I realised it wasn't interesting.


Roof tiles. And they could do with a scrub, let's be honest.


Scruffy starlings. One of those two words is unnecessary.


A bluetit (I think) and a sparrow play peek-a-boo. They're probably discussing the inclusion of porridge oats, most of which ended up on the lawn.


I'm told this is a Siskin. That's a new one on me.


A lady blackbird searches for its mate. I saw him about, but he was a shifty bugger, and looked like he'd been drinking.


I'm going to stick my neck out and say this is a great tit? Someone will correct me, I'm sure. Or giggle. He was a handsome little sod - and nicely focused - whatever he was.


A bollard. Ahoy!


Two horse police constables, walking the beat.


If Slash was a horse?


This little beauty wandered over to the car and stuck her nose in through the open window. I thought this was lovely, but she was distressed by my lack of apples and polo mints, and wandered off.


And to finish, this lad. For some reason, this reminds me of Kurt Cobain.

It's probably the hair.

That, and he left a load of teen spirit in the middle of the road.

  1. These are wonderful. Love the colors in the field. And, of course, your running commentary is hysterical.

    1. Hey Jayne! Thanks, they were from far and wide, and I was surprised by how many I had. I'm probably a camera bore. Oooh, do you know what sort of horses they were? Indigo x

  2. Indigo, where do you find the time to take such wonderful photos? I don't know for sure what that second one is but it's interesting.

    1. Hey Dufus! That's very kind of you, sir, but in truth I find NO time to do it. I just take the camera everywhere in the car. If I'm someplace interesting, I take a photo. Or twenty =) Indigo

    1. Ahoy Jack! Did you like the bollard? =) Thanks, I threw ten away for every one I used, but that's not a bad ratio compared to when I started =D Indigo x

  4. Quite enjoyable Mr. Roth. Were those Clydesdale horses?

    1. Hey Britt =) D'you know, I'm not sure? I think Clydesdale's are taller? They were decent sized, but not enormous, so I'm not sure what they were. They were nice-natured, calm lads, tho, I know that. Indigo x

  5. What lovely horses with their big feathery feet...Clydesdales probably...walking along just hoovering up the field. You do have a way with a photo.

    1. Hey Delores! Another vote for Clydesdales? Well, as ever, happy to be wrong. I just thought they were handsome lads =) Indigo x

  6. That's lovely lichen on the roof, and the tiles are hand-made. They shouldn't be scrubbed, it will destroy their charm.....oh, you were joking. D'oh.

    1. It's okay Z, I'm not sure I was. Ignorant townies, right? =) Indigo x

  7. Maybe Slash and Kurt could get together and create something bold and new. Fragrance-wise.

    Also I'm not sure if we have bollards in the US. Though I might be thinking of that other 'boll' word, . I get them confused.

    1. Hey Bill! I think they did; I came across something that have their hoofprints in it on the heath. Sweet Pile o' Mine? Indigo

    1. Thanks Jenny! The one of the two horses almost didn't make the cut, as it was a very plain composition, but I know we have horse lovers here =) Indigo x

    1. Namaste Yam! I've looked through a bunch of photos, and I'm definitely leaning towards the Clydesdales, but yeah, it's possible. And, as it's local, I suppose I could just go ask? I had no idea the lady cattle had horns, I thought that was just the boys?! Man, did I not pay attention in biology. And I'm clueless with women, so I wouldn't have noticed =) Thanks for the birdie confirms! Indigo x

  11. I like the scruffy starlings, and the scruffy tiles. Maybe I just like scruffy?

    1. Hey Ms. Scarlet! Scruffy is as scruffy does, as my mother has said on many occasions. But never about ME, obviously... Indigo x

  12. Suffolk Punches are always chestnut, as far as I know, and they have smooth hair around their hooves, unlike other heavy horses. I don't know enough to identify these, though.

    1. Hey Z! We're thinking Clydesdales, but I shall go ask the next time I pass by =) Ooooh, I must go take my move at our Scrabble game! Sorry! Indigo x

  13. amazing as ever... though i think, as always, that touching up photos does a huge disservice to their natural beauty - that however does not apply when the photo is of me... ;)

    ...such a conversation the scruffy starling must be having... that i think is my favorite in this showing - they could not be resting on a better surface.

    1. Hey Eolist! You're right, I know. I try not to tinker, I really do =) But sometimes, they need some fixing, or just more... art? ;D But thank you x

  14. Jayne is right. These are lovely, and you are hysterical.
    Great tit. Heh. (Sorry. Couldn't resist :) )

    1. Hey Dawn! Thanks, tho I think I was just tired =) You're lucky I didn't post my photo of a pair of brown boobies I saw on the beach... Indigo x

  15. As always... WOW WOW WOW!

    "Some folk say that my photo style in distinctive. But I say I just want you to be sure you've found the right blog." And THAT, my friend, is why I have chicken guts pictures as often as possible on mine. HA HA HA!!!

    So your pictures... I just can't say enough. They are stunning. You take the kind of pictures love. Animals of COURSE...especially the dog. But the way you take something that people pass by all the time and turn it in to beautiful art... you have such an eye.

    Ohhhh and the lobster pot!!!!!!! I want lobster!!!!

    1. Oh, Katherine… You’re far too kind, and far more thoughtful about it than I ever am. But thank you, I really like some of these, and it’s lovely that you do too. Now then, about that lobster… ;) Indigo x

  17. "Scruffy starlings. One of those two words is unnecessary."

    I LOLed.

    AND I learned a new word: bollard. And it's not showing up underlined in red, so it really IS a new word.

    Well I'll be.

  18. Late to the party here, but I think the horses are Gypsy Vanners. Also known as Gypsy Cob, Gypsy Horse, Tinkers horse, Irish Cob, Coloured Cob... Clydesdales are huge and don't come in black and white, I don't think. I think they are almost always bay (brown with black mane and tail) and white. Yes, Suffolk Punch are always chestnut and are minus the hairy feet. Shires are much larger as well. (I had one of those once and he was so lovely and gentle. 2000 lbs of massive black hairy-ness and gorgeous blue eyes.)

    The birds I am pretty useless on. ;-)
