2016 in Pictures - March 29th

Stormy Weather
On my way to work today I got held up by a cancelled train. Sitting at Littleport station in the sunshine, I was surprised by spots of rain, and looked up to see the sky over the town turning slate grey. Thankfully that lot didn't break over us, but it looked ominous for a while.

2016 in Pictures - 21st March 2016

So, the purpose of this project is to provoke me to note my surroundings more. Clearly it's not working, as yesterday I zoned out enough to miss my stop and spend an hour on Downham Market station.

This is a heron's nest; honest. Sadly, since spotting it the first time (when my phone was inside my jacket,) I've never seen either parent on the nest, let alone both together.

Fog on the Fens
Hurrah; it's Spring.


Bloody weather.

Swan Sunset
This shot is notable for being taken from the rail replacement bus service, after a train failed at Littleport due to a collision with a swan. Now, I doubt this did the swan much good, but you honestly wouldn't expect a train to be that troubled by hitting even quite a large bird.

Grey Day
Another window landscape, just to demonstrate that Spring has well and truly refused to sprong.

Lunchtime Reflections
Yesterday, my parents took me to lunch at Jamie's Italian. There was a crying child who had presumably just been informed that turkey twizzlers were off the menu, but other than that it was very pleasant. The food was decent, although we might avoid the lunch menu next time.

The building, on the other hand - the Old Library on Wheeler Street - was magnificent.

I should also have got a shot of the computerised seating plan, which looked like something out of an old adventure game. There ought to have been a dude in a pith helmet throwing boomerangs at ghosts.
