Daytime Moon over Lichfield

‎Damian and his wife Julie and I walked the route of the Erasmus Darwin walk today. The sun was shining and it was clear and we saw this beautiful day-time moon shown in photos below.

We also came across these paintings – query interpretations of famous Apollo moon landing photos in the local art galary.

The Erasmus Darwin walk is over 10 miles in length. It was one small step for Andy and one giant step for Dame – Andy’s step-counter watch recorded that he walked 27610 steps whereas Dame’s phone recorded 22200 steps – I have tiny legs!

A single day Solargraph.

Hi, quite a few people are running solargraphs (tin cans with pinholes containing photographic film) to capture the suns path between the Summer and Winter solstice. The one below was run for just one day.

It didn’t use photographic film but photosensitive paper, that you stop/ develop by immersing in water, the sort of thing you can get from Hawkins bazaar.!
