I enjoy looking out of the window whilst on the train and taking pictures of things that seem interesting to me. I can sit there for 5 hours or more with my camera poised, whilst my wife and all the other passengers occupy themselves with reading or puzzles or whatever they like to do.
The only problem is that my camera takes a photo about 2 seconds after you press the button, so I have a fine collection of things seen from the train 2 seconds after we passed something interesting.
Just occasionally it works quite well though, as in the case of these terraced houses seen near Durham on Saturday.
For every one of these I have 20 pictures with subjects such as ‘field obscured by telegraph pole’, ‘house with blurred railway trackside equipment’ or ‘trees accidentally photographed at speed’.
Anyway, we are back from being away and in Scotland. We had a lovely time and got to see lots of interesting things and people, mainly in Edinburgh, but also for one day in Glasgow where we went to see Jack the Lass and the Glasgow School of Art.
So, now I am back and will be doing drawings once I find my desk. I also have some extra duties to attend to, about which more later.
Questions for study groups
1) What have you seen out of the window on the train?
2) How does this tie in with all the verses in the Bible?
