Near Wootten St Lawrence, this evening. I must try and get up early one frosty morning for these shots. The spirit is willing, but the flesh oh so weak.

Last day of October, a gusty showery day with brilliant sunny intervals.

Perfect weather for some life forms.

A Better Class of Person

John Osborne's first volume of his autobiography was serialised on Radio 4 Extra a week or two ago. I only heard fleeting moments in the car, but enough to encourage me to find a copy online. And I'm glad I did. It's an excellent read, taking us from his childhood to the brink of his success as a playwright. Always brutally honest, sometimes very funny, it's made me look out for the second volume.

Circle Packing - 03.10.2021

I generated some custom colour palettes from the Wales and Shropshire photos (last post before this) and used them for a simple circle packing sketch. I really like the effect.

The first palette is from the sky in the final image, the second is from the grasses in the penultimate picture, and the last is from the photo of the metal gate (fourth image).

(Hexcolor.co was very useful.)
