Sunday Selections #113
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. go on over to The Elephant's Child to see what she has posted for her Sunday Selections.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have sunbeams and reflections for you. And a solar powered wind spinner.
Then when I went out to the porch to check on how my washing was drying,
I remember being glad to have so much sun that day, I was hoping it would power up the new solar powered spinner I'd just hung off the canopy over my front window.
The flat round section just under the hook has a solar panel on top which is connected to a colour changing light bulb glued into the glass sphere hanging inside the spinner frame.
At night the sphere lights up and changes colour.
There is a yellow very briefly between the red and green but Iwas unable to catch it, and the purple also doesn't stay very long before going back to red.
The photos are a little blurry because it was windy, so the whole thing was spinning as it is supposed to.
After I'd had it hanging for a couple of weeks, I noticed the sphere had dropped away from the bulb and was resting within the frame, so I took the whole thing down, glued it back in with super glue and hung it back up. It's attached by cable tie, so should stay up for a long time.
