Trying vainly to compensate for my stupid blunder yesterday when my camera’s battery ran out after just one photo on what was to be a collection of shots of Autumn colours taken on a gorgeous sunny day, I took my camera with me this morning ( complete with fully charged battery) as we went down to town for some shopping. It was raining which put a damper on things so don’t worry about the white spots on some of the shots. that’s just the rain on the lens.
A very weak sun kept vainly trying to battle with the rain clouds, but sadly lost. The park was empty apart from one brave soul battling his way through the mud and a lone dog owner walking their dog. The swings, the slides, the spiders web, the toddlers roundabout were all empty and forlorn. We had to battle our way through the very soggy grass in the park just to get some decent shots and K splodged her way valiantly through the muddy field as she trudged after me, not looking too impressed with this diversion just for her Mum’s photo shoot.
She brightened up considerably though on reaching Tesco’s when she was invited to taste some chilli con carne from a lady who was offering tasters of some product or other. All hardship suffered during the trek through mud and wet grass was quickly forgotten so with a shot of K enjoying her taster I do hope you will enjoy all the damp photos in the slideshow.
