Day 204 – Covent Garden

Covent Garden started life as an open-air fruit and vegetable market in 1654. The covered part of the market was not introduced until 1830. Over the year what has been sold there have changed but even today it is still essentially a place to buy and sell things. There is still a market, although you won't find fruit and vegetables or many flowers, they have been replaced with art, collectibles, clothes and restaurants as well as a thriving community of street performers. If you visit London you really must include this in your places to go. This picture was taken…

sunset hue over River Yar Yarmouth

Day 199 – Pretty hue

“Listen to the sunset...see its pretty hue... When you see it, think of me...and I'll think of you...” ~ Oksana Rus This really is the colour of the sky/water. The only editing I did to this image was to reduce the highlights slightly and the clarity to 'soften' the water. Apart from that you are getting to see exactly what I saw when I took the picture.

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…

Day 162 – Dining

“The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.” ~ Michael Pollan And there is nothing quite like sitting down with people you care and sharing a good meal. It is one of my favourite things to do. Of course not all meals are good, we have definitely been out with friends to some restaurants that disappointed but that was never as a result of the company we were in. In fact the company usually made up for the…

Port meadow Oxford

Day 157 – Meadow land

“We all know that a sky with clouds in it is much more interesting than one that doesn’t have any.” ~ Jodi Picoult This is Port Meadow in Oxford. A beautiful haven that lays to the north east of the city. It is an ancient area of grazing land that has never been ploughed. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 giving the Freeman of Oxford the right to graze their animals free of charge which continues to be the case right up to the present day. If you ever go to Oxford make sure you visit this…

Day 148 – Night and day

“It was deep afternoon when shadows begin to grow, light becomes gold, and you realize that this particular day has reached its destiny. Like old age, it’s not yet over, but there’s no denying the time of day.” ~ Vicki Covington  Once the clocks change and the days get longer there is something about that time when the night not yet is fully alive but the light of the day only just lingers in the air that is magical. It for such a short time that the two, night and day, share a moment and they part company only to…

Day 127 – Water watch

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.” ~ Nicholas Sparks Water is a wonderful thing to watch. It moves in a very unique way. There is a reason we call it a body of water I think, because like a body it is alive. It moves, it lives, it reflects, it holds, it caresses, it has power and strength way beyond anything else on this planet. Water is the stuff of life.

three little ducks reflected in water

Day 120 – Three little ducks

"Three little ducks went swimming one day..." I found this little cuties on a local fishing pond near my home. There were actually 5 ducklings and their mother but the other 2 seemed much more timid and stayed right beside her all the time whilst these three keep buzzing off all over the place. The mother duck kept a close eye and if they got to far would hurry after them but for the most part she seemed content to float around nearby and let them explore.

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 in Rye High Street East Sussex

Day 106 – Rye Times

“A Street filled with people is a vein filled with blood!” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan This picture was taken in the charming little high street of Rye in East Sussex. It is a little town very close to my heart as I spent many happy childhood summers staying with my Grandparents who lived about 7 miles from Rye. I took this picture on a resent trip we took with my children and my parents to relive some of those memories.

Day 102 – Experiment

"I have always had an instinct for doing new things. Call it good or bad, I love to experiment." ~ Ravi Shankar I love to experiment with my photography. I am not sure it is ever possible to feel like to have taken enough pictures and with the invention of digital editing the experimentation can go on well after the initial image has been taken. Not that you could not also do that in the dark room days but accessibility to that kind of thing for most people was just a dream. This image is in fact two images. One…

Light show in regeneration area of Kings Cross regents canel relfections

Day 78 – Regeneration

When I was a child and young adult this part of Kings Cross in London was a run down almost derelict part of the city. It was definitely an area that you did not wander around in on your own at night. Now after a multi million pound regeneration project it is completely transformed from its former rundown self into a thriving business area with offices, shops and restaurants. It is virtually unrecognizable from the place I knew as a youth.
