With some luck and contributions this thread can turn into our daily weather check point. In time it might even help travellers for preparing for their ultimate destinations...
All you have to do is shoot a photo everyday if you can find the time post it here and state the local temperature and weather conditions...
Here's my starter for Istanbul today:High 4° C
Chance of snow
A possible bench that you may have to share with snow... A cafe that would rather have you seated indoors today... Town's creatures may appear to be on a hunting spree...
Ottoman monument comprising a graveyard... The plaza with Ottoman canons... And maybe you can head towards the Bosphorus' waters and share a bench with fresh snow...

It'll be more like 'weather aftercast' I suppose and will only work for 'today' shots and will only help those travelling on that exact date...A long shot away from being helpful as a forecast but will definitely give an idea of what the conditions are for travel-enthusiasts.
We can always look back and track what it was like though... So the more entries on daily basis, the more memories in the future to remember.
Please don't forget to share your storm when it arrives in Yerevan... One frame tells a million ...

I like the canon with the snow on top, and those lonely benches and seats.
ps. I only shot one photo today and haven't downloaded it yet, it was only to record the success or failure of my anti pigeon device, (the pigeons have found my feeding spot for the doves after 20 years, and of course they shove the doves out of the way). I found some weldmesh down in the old chook-house and rested it horizontally on four pavers (two inches thick) so the pigeons can't get at the seed I put there seperately, the plan was, the doves can walk underneath and not be bothered by the pigeons. Only one problem, some pigeons (not many) can actually squirm into such a small space under the mesh as it turns out.....hmm
I'll inset the pic later when I get a minute.
Todays (04-02-10) Townsville weather. Fine Temp 36° C Humidity 60% Wind SE 5-10 Kts.
You are enjoying a good summer's day indeed in Townsville!
Looking forward to your photo-report...
You certainly are into some special task there with the pigeons. I hadn't realized that they could be an annoyance for the doves but I do know that pigeons can feed on seeds almost endlessly once they find the spot. There was a couple that were persistent that they wanted to make their nest on a cupboard in my balcony and I had to clean the branches and feathers they kept bringing for the construction of the nest. After about five deconstructive attempts from me and closing all windows and doors they move elsewhere and make that nest.
This is regularly repeated each year at the end of May.

That's a good one !KevinBarrett wrote:Nice shots, Yildiz! My favorites are the hunting kitty and the ornately carved headstones. We'll forgive you for posting a canon in the Sony forum, though...
And thanks for the nice thoughts on the photos. Definitely wish to see your 'weather today' shots...and they don't even have to be anything too artistic.. We'll forgive you for not taking your off-camera lighting equipment to take some weather aftercast candids!
Hmmm, knowing for a fact how storms can take over life in N. America, that definitely would be a sight to register and record!jbtaylor wrote:We may be in wicked weather if the 2 storms bearing down on Maryland collide. Estimates of 2 feet or more of snow have been kicked around. If so, then you will have plenty of pictures from my bedroom window.
Looking forward to your weather aftercasts Jbtaylor.
You're the ultimate street-life photographer of the forum, therefore I'm sure you'll someday soon in the future find the time and the proper location that you think is worth taking a weather report photo...and enjoy it too!
That kitty was deeply focused on 'one' prey the human eye wouldn't detect for sure, because the more I tried to see what it was preparing to spring on the less was visible of the prey but the kitty definitely knew what it was doing...I had to leave to focus on other subjects ...
