One Day One World Project: 11:00 – 12:00

The final hour

I spied a spider…

I have done my best to complete the 6 month (24 hour) project set by Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind to show what is happening around the world (both home and away) depicting one hour each week. I ran out of ideas during the middle of the night, so it was good to see how others managed this. It certainly was a challenge! Thank you Lisa for making me think about every hour of every day and getting me to record what has been going on in my world during these last 6 months. Today is the last hour. And in line with the foggy autumn weather which has finally arrived in my part of the world, I offer you a few more photos of Ludlow.

Golden bracken in the woods

This week is between 11:00 – 12:00.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It is chilly today, but we have had a good start to autumn, September was a lovely month and even last weekend I was on the coast without a coat on!

    1. I had to use an art effect Sue as the original photo is a bit blurry – but I think it works well. Should I also confess to adding the water droplets?

        1. They were added by use of a watering can – at the time of this photo it hadn’t rained in weeks! making up for it now though 😦

  1. And what a beautiful way to end this challenge. It must have been quite difficult at times but you stuck with it, well done! Love these autumn pics and the one of the spider is quite wonderful 🙂 xx

    1. Autumn has finally arrived Sherri and with it those spiders, even in my teeny patch they are busy spinning webs! So long as they stay outdoors I don’t mind 😉

      1. Closed window, I bet!

        Dan Antion has a spidey pic today, too. I was thinking it’s Halloween inspired because spiders are on my mind as we decorate for Trick or Treat, but do you even celebrate Halloween??

        1. We do now! Along with the High School Prom! I’m not one for Halloween at all; as a child it was all about Guy Fawkes, fireworks and bonfire night 🙂

  2. I’m in agreement with everyone else – as much as I don’t care for spiders and their webs, your photo is a beauty!!

    I really enjoyed seeing your world in Ludlow during this challenge. Looking forward to more 🙂

    1. Thank you Jo. They are quite photogenic creatures aren’t they? And I rather liked the colour of this one. I do not like walking into a web though, ugh!

      I have enjoyed the project – it has made me think about what I am going to post and plan what I could realistically do in the time frame, fortunately Ludlow has a lot of things going on for such a small town so that has helped with a lot of the hours. I have loved your contributions too – especially your night time jaunts 😀 😀

    1. Many thanks Dawn! It has been an interesting project and kept me busy during the summer! Maybe now I’ll get back to posting more windows – I have a few!

  3. I’ll be there later in the week for this one, Jude. I mistakenly took 11-12.00 photos last week (out with the Nordics- I must have got distracted). I love your bracken shot. I was down on the Moors this morning and it was sensational for colour (but cold). 🙂

    1. Bracken is lovely when backlit by the sun, sadly not today – cold and wet here. I will pop over to yours shortly – just can’t quite catch-up at the moment, trying to write posts and read others and sort out stuff for Oz!

  4. Spider’s great – and so is your stamina in following the challenge through the day (and night).

    (I need to let you know I’m embarking on a comment freeze for a couple of weeks: I won’t be making or answering comments, in an attempt to break my addiction and to reshape my life a bit more sensibly! I’ll still be posting – there’s a backlog, and life goes on, and it’s my form of memory. I just need to stop clicking every five seconds to see if there’s a comment. Pitiful, eh?)

    1. Thanks Yvette. I felt that the background on the bracken shot was too intrusive, giving it an art effect seemed to help it blend into the… background! Where it belongs 😉

  5. I’m going with the bracken too. I was only thinking about the bracken in the nearby woods the other day. It is in every shade of brown and gold imaginable at the moment. Nice shot Jude.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

  6. Lovely Autumn colours Jude. Congratulations sticking with this project to the very end. That spider photo is fabulous the way all the dew drops sparkle.
