The week's theme was: O is for Organic

Organic and inorganic. Ivy grows really well in our garden and has to be pruned to keep it under control. It likes nothing better than trailing across the stone wall.

And for this I actually got the DSLR out and took a bit of care composing and processing the shot.

In other news, I'm busy editing my second video in Welsh. The next video will be about Barmouth. I had it all planned and was just waiting for a day of good weather to go and do the filming.

That day was last Wednesday and I was very lucky because the brand new lifeboat was out on the beach. They must have been practising with it and I managed to get some good shots of them dragging it up the beach and onto the trailer. As they were strapping it securely so it didn't fall off as they towed it up the beach, a female crew member appeared on deck. There was a mother with a small daughter, probably about 7 years old watching and their eyes lit up when they saw a woman as part of the crew. "Look," said the mum to the small girl. "There's a lady lifeboat person. See you can do anything you want."

So different to when I was that age...
