NaBloPoMo 24 - ABC Wednesday - S is for

S is this week's letter at ABC Wednesday

Snow covered mountains in Sepia for Sepia Scenes



Sea, Sand and Seagull

Socks - On 30 June this year I volunteered to peg some red socks to break the world record for the longest clothesline of socks.

It was sponsored by the Sir Peter Blake Trust and Westpac.

We were pegging those socks in the howling wind, horizontal rain and the cold. But efforts paid off. We did it. A new world record.

Check it out at Red Socks World Record

  6. Thanks Rohit - I'm thrilled to read that from someone who photographs so well.
    Thanks Gattina - we got the snow first time in 50 odd years - was so exciting.
    Thanks Alex - yes, the snow made everything look completely different. It was so beautiful.

  7. Your sepia snow and seaside seagull are wonderful contrasts, as well as perfect S photos! (Making the snowy mountain sepia-toned was a particular stroke of genius!) I love stained glass windows, and don't believe I've ever seen one of a train before! Congratulations on your new world record for socks on a clothesline, especially in such adverse weather conditions. What became of all those red socks when it was over? Perhaps a few of them will be hung up by the chimney with care soon. :-)

  9. Thanks Laloofah and Roger. I love the Sepia shot too.
    @Laloofah - I think they gave away the socks to volunteers but I didn't stick around for that.
