mans fingers on guitar strings hit me with music

Day 178 – Making music

"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." Bob MarleyI love it when my husband reaches for his guitar. There is something wonderfully sexy about watching him play. The way he cradles the instrument, how his fingers move and glide to create music and the intense look of concentration that plays across his face is all a delight to watch. The music he makes is just the icing on the cake as far as I am concerned. In the truly dark days that we have experienced in the UK this week, sometimes a simple pleasure…

Girl jumping in wave on beach at sunset Tunisia as they come ashore

Day 176 – Waves ashore

“Waves are the voices of tides. Tides are life," murmured Niko. "They bring new food for shore creatures, and take ships out to sea. They are the ocean's pulse, and our own heartbeat.” ~ Tamora Pierce Jumping over waves as they come ashore is one of the simple pleasures in life. You always know when something is that because children indulge in it instinctively. However for reasons I have never really understood when we become adults we have a tendency to forget them, or take them for granted, or be so busy in our lives that we just don't indulge…

Man mowing cut grass

Day 161 – Freshly Cut

"I love the smell of freshly cut grass. It takes me back to summers in Maine." ~ Rachel NicholsNo summers on Maine for me instead they were spent in very rural Sussex with my Grandparents. They had a huge lawn, in fact they had a huge garden with little winding paths, Chickens and Pheasants, which my Grandfather breed, a pond, greenhouses and variety of dilapidated but picturesque sheds. They grew flowers and vegetables. Huge blousey roses scented the air and rows of Dahlia's filled the space with colour and then there was the lawn. Large and green and mowed in…

Boris Bike at night

Day 152 – Let’s Ride

"I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride my bike I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride it where I like" ~ Bicycle Race by Queen Taken in central London this are often referred to as Boris Bikes because it was one of the few great ideas that the former mayor of London, Boris Johnson, implemented and as a result you can find banks of these bikes all over the city that you can hire, ride around on and return to any of the docking stations.

Day 144 – Photographing photographers

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” ~ Marc RiboudI am a member of my local camera club. We met from September to May and there is a variety of different activities. Some weeks there are competitions, some weeks outside speakers and some week members run sessions. It has definitely been a good experience but I am not sure how long I will continue to go as I think the overwhelming number of competitions are on the verge of getting a bit boring but I shall certainly do at least one more year. However one of…

Voyeur through a tunnel

Day 143 – Voyeur

“Voyeurs have an open window on the world.”  ~ Ljupka Cvetanova  I am a voyeur and this is even more the case when I have my camera in hand. I watch and see but what I do more than anything else is I try to capture the world that I experience within my image. Sometimes I stumble upon image that just appear to be waiting for me and this one perfect example. This is a tunnel that goes over the Motorway and connects the two service stations on each side. When I stepped into it the light, the people, the…

Bus top with man walking past, walk in London

Day 139 – Walk Out

"No city should be too large for a man to walk out of in a morning." ~ Cyril Connolly   In which London is too large but I like it that way. Sprawling and giant, it is constantly alive, no matter what time of day or night it is. There is plenty of opportunity to walk as well but luckily the bus and tube train system while confusing to non Londoners is extensive. I had to wait a little while to get this shot as London is not a quiet city and there were was a constant stream of people…

Day 124 – key Holder

"You have a fancy ride, but baby I'm the one who has the key" ~ Soak up the Sun by Sheryl Crow This is my husbands arm on the steering wheel of our car. As you can see he has a key tattoo on his wrist but what you can not see is that I have the corresponding lock tattooed on my wrist.

Men sitting by pond fishing taking in serenity

Day 118 – Fishing for serenity

"There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind." ~ Washington Irving I guess this must be the case but fishing is something that I just do not get. I understand the solitude, the quiet, the peace etc but just sitting there would not work for me. I need something to do or else I get bored and irritable and I am pretty sure sitting and staring at the water hoping that something might happen at some point would drive me bonkers. Each to their own though, if fishing is your thing, I hope…

People sitting silent on the London underground

Day 109 – Silent Underground

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." ~ Greg Anderson I have discovered that there is a huge difference between how people behave on the Tube (Subway) in London compared to how they behave on the subway in Philadelphia. In London the place is like a library. I am not exaggerating, everyone tends to sit (or stand if it's busy) very quietly. There is sometimes a low hum of conversation but often even couples and groups fall silent. In Philly I discovered that people happily chat away not…
