Day 120 – Happy Place

Bluebells woods

I took this picture a couple of weeks ago in a small piece of woodland that I visit often on my walks. I have taken some beautiful self portrait pictures here and some lovely shots of female friends who wanted their picture taken. Over the last 6 months I have watched this space transform from autumn to winter and into spring again. I have sat quietly here and watched a deer wander by. It has been a beautiful and peaceful place for me.

Yesterday I returned there yet again, it is a favourite place for me, and was shocked to discover that nearly all the trees have been felled and the Bluebells trampled under foot. The place has been decimated. This beautiful tranquil spot has been raped by man and I stood in the middle of what had been a very special place for me and cried. So this picture is both happy and sad for me. Happy because I found this place and have some lovely memories I shall treasure and sad because someone couldn’t appreciate or value it’s beauty over their monetary gain.

Day 314 – Feed me

 

The prompts this week naturally led me towards combining favourites and food together into one image. I am a very lucky woman, my husband loves to cook and is very good at it. It is the reason I have to go to Zumba classes 3 times a week otherwise I would have no hope of ever fitting in my jeans again. Meatballs are one of my absolutely favourite things he cooks.

Day 216 – Sea Saw

 

Looking back through my images that I took while we were in Greece I realised how much I have missed the sea and that I must not let so much time pass before seeing it again. I think the sea/ocean is amazing and it’s simple beauty beyond any other of the natural wonders of the world.

Day 213 – Blue Nights

 

We have just arrived back in the UK after a blissful week on the Greek island of Zante. The weather here in the UK is damp, grey and fairly miserable. I miss the beautiful blue skies and bright sunshine already.

Day 199 – Jurassic Talk

 

To me the old style red phone boxes seem just as much an iconic image of London as Tower Bridge or the Houses of Parliament and yet the rise of the mobile phone and the internet has resulted in these 2 dinosaurs of communication proudly sitting side by side in St Katharine’s Dock waiting for someone to use them… No-one made a phone call of posted a letter while I was there but there was a steady stream of tourists posing for photographs with them.

Day 159 – It’s Just A Game

posted in: Featured, People, Quotes, Scenery, Thoughts | 2

 

At last the football session is over here for my son and so for the time being there will be no more rushed Sunday morning drives to games in the pouring rain. I won’t miss it in the slightest. One of the other things that I hate about the whole thing is the shouty Dad’s. I am sure you know the type, who stand on the edge berating their son(s) and sometimes even the whole team for not performing as they would wish. Their constant commentary just seems to grate on my nerves, they seem to have forgotten that they are watching a group of 12 year old boys play football and not some professional team. They seem to have forgotten that it is meant to be fun and most of all they seem to have forgotten their children, especially their sons, learn from their behaviour. Sometimes it takes all my will power not to tap them on the shoulder and tell them to hush now. Maybe next session…
