"I will go out of my way to avoid the shopping crowds and the extreme consumerism" - I hate all that. Annie Lennox I am pretty much with Annie on this subject especially at this time of year. I can't stand fighting the crowds however I do like a good bargain but I have found that most of the sales are full of crap I don't actually want and staying away is a much more relaxing and better use of my time. I took this picture in London before Christmas. It is a display of shoes on a spinning display.…
“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” ~ Anne Frank Truer words were never spoken. Anne's story definitely became a candle that defined the darkness of the times in which she lived. I am fairly sure she would be horrified at the current state of the world too. There really should never be another Anne and yet in parts of the world there most definitely are and the potential for there to be feels very real at the moment.
“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” ~ Ernest Hemingway
"I think everyone loves a slash of red lipstick." ~ Gwendoline Christie I don't wear makeup very often but I do like a bit of fabulous lipstick now and then. This is one of my favourites, It is actually more pink than red, in fact it is a shimmery shiny pink. Not all fabulous lipstick is red you know.
“The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle Yesterday I posted an image and left you to wonder what it was. Time to solve the mystery. Those strange little alien apparitions are actually the light distortion created through the finer holes on the back of this cheese grater. I was going for this shot and accidentally captured something kind of spooky and mysterious instead. A complete fluke but the result was an image that I think is much more interesting than the one I was intending to take.
"Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand." ~ Neil Armstrong So I am hoping this mysterious image will make you wonder what it is. I think it looks like little aliens peeking out of some sort of strange window. I will tell you that this was an accidental shot captured when I was trying to take a close up of this item. Can you guess what it is? Come back tomorrow and I will reveal all.
“Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was. "Is there any tea on this spaceship?" he asked.” ~ Douglas Adams I like my morning cup of coffee but after that is done I am all about the tea. Yes, I am very British in that way. I like it in a mug, the bigger the better and I drink it throughout the afternoon. This beautiful black mug was gifted to me by a friend. I have never been to Austin myself but I think there is something wonderfully special about…
This has been our weekend. We have completely stripped out my sons very small bedroom. Painted the walls a soft cream colour and put in a wall bed and a wall mounted TV. He has been sleeping on a mattress in the front room and the whole house is in total chaos. There is rubbish and paint and tools and goodness knows what absolutely everywhere but we are very close to being finished and it rather cool that we did it all in 3 days. It was also my sons birthday. He was 17 which, in the UK, means it…
“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.” ~ Voltaire If I lived closer to this pub I would be very tempted to try out the quiz. I have not been to one in years but I rather enjoyed the times I have. Maybe a special trip is in order at some point.
“No matter how sophisticated the camera, the photographer is still the one that makes it.” ~ Doug Bartlow Taking pictures of someone taking pictures is actually something I really find fascinating. In that picture the story of the moment completely changes. It was a beautiful view of the city and I had taken a few but for me this picture of him taking a picture captures a real truth about the whole trip. I took a lot of images that day from the boat but this, in my opinion, is the best and most interesting of them all.
