338-2020 – Beautiful Christmas Decorations


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is another beautiful Christmas decorations I encountered during my evening walk through my neighbourhood. In a post a few days ago, I have mentioned two other houses’ Christmas decorations, which incidentally are right next to this one. I am starting to think that there is a healthy rivalry between my neighbours, in regards to who’s Christmas decorations are more beautiful, and somehow I am tempted to join the challenge.🎄Like, comment & share!

143-2020 – Inside Sundial


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is from Inside the Sundial metal art work at Basildon Town Centre Roundabout. This was taken with the Insta360 Pro 360 camera. The image looks a bit distorted but this is the main reason why I choose it. You have to imagine a metal ball with an arrow running through it and me inside the ball. From the outside it looks like this. Like, comment & share!

120-2020 – Weeping Willow Tree


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a Weeping Willow Tree, right next to The Plough & Tractor Pub in Basildon. Technically, are more than one tree in the picture, but I positioned myself in such a way that one tree blocks the other. Apparently, weeping willow trees get their common name from the way that rain looks like tears when it’s dripping off the curved branches.Like, comment & share!

We had to go out today because we had to buy some food. Some of our favourite groceries are only available at the Romanian shop located in Basildon Town Centre. The rest of the shopping was done at Iceland supermarket, literally next door. If you came to this blog to see empty shelves, I am afraid that I’ll have to disappoint you. I did however had to queue up […]
