The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
that is gorgeous. The black and white make it look even more spectacular!
With the B&W picture, it looks like it was painted in 1807.
Stunning! Happy WW :)
I really like this one Jams! Looks great in b&w. Have you been to the Upminster one?
Incredible dynamic in that sky!Come see my new photo blog... maybe you'll want to be our guest sometime?
Magnificent shot...This looks as if it were taken a century ago. Truly beautiful:)Happy WW!
Awesome shot, I have posted a much more modern rendition is my WW. Kind of neat to see something on the same theme of using the wind.
That is beautiful! I love the B&W! Happy WW!
Another stunner Jams.Happy WW
Oh, very nicely done, Jams! I love anything that spins about in the wind! Particularly if it ISN'T using oil and oil products!!!!!!!Is this near you? And what is its function?
A classic windmill, a mighty sky. Thanks for another great image.

That is gorgeous - especially in b/w with all the heavy cloud cover... Happy WW! :)

Outstanding shot. Gorgeous!!
Cool B&W shot! I need a better camera!
Windmills are soooo cool! That is so much cooler than any I have seen where we live! The fins remind me of giant combs. Lovely picture, as always!

This is a very nice picture of a very nice windmill. Is it operational (besides just turning around and around, i.e. is it driving something)?Happy WW!..
What a great picture. If I look at it long enough I can almost see the windmill spin. Love the B&W. Happy WW!!!
