Bird sculpture on grave stone in remembrance of someone

Day 69 – In remembrance

"We do not remember days, we remember moments." - Cesare Pavese I found this sculpture on a grave in a local little cemetery. It had clearly been there a long time. The metal work was tinged with verdigris and you can just make out some of the spider webs that decorated this piece. There was a small grave stone too but it only had a name and dates on it so there were no clues as to why this unusual piece had been placed in remembrance of this person. I feel like there is a story here about this sculpture…

Winter trees reflected in rippling stream water

Day 55 – Rippling

There is a tiny brook that wends its way As it twists and it turns, where'er it may; And over each glistening stone it brings To us the rippling song that it sings. ~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham This little stream meanders its way through the woodlands on the edge of my town. Sometimes when it rains and rains parts of it spill over into the woods creating a muddy swampy mess beneath the trees. Most of the time though it flows within its banks through its woodland surroundings.  I took this image where the stream is shallow and you can…

Day 48 – Warhol Glasses

“I always think about what it means to wear eyeglasses. When you get used to glasses you don't know how far you could really see. I think about all the people before eyeglasses were invented. It must have been weird because everyone was seeing in different ways according to how bad their eyes were. Now, eyeglasses standardize everyone's vision to 20-20. That's an example of everyone becoming more alike. Everyone could be seeing at different levels if it weren't for glasses.” ~ Andy Warhol I was rather delighted to find a Warhol quote about glasses having giving this image a…

Day 43 – Calm

“Find a calm lake and wait for the twilight in silence! There, existence will visit you with all its magnificence! The existence of the Existence can best be felt in the presence of dimness and in the absence of crowds and noises!” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan

Winter trees reflected in water way

Day 41 – Water Ways

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” ~ Margaret Atwood

Glass building Tunisia airport

Day 36 – Made from glass

"Don't build a glass house if you're worried about saving money on heating." ~ Philip Johnson This is not a problem for this building as it is an airport in Tunisia but I have to wonder if the same applies to air conditioning. The whole thing, every wall and I mean every wall, was made from glass, floor to ceiling. It really did make a visual impact especially from the inside where the gleaming marble floors reflected all the light making it look like everything was floating on a glass floor. The light, the reflections and the lines of the…

Day 29 – Blue landscape

“To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.” ~ Ansel Adams I can't even pretend to be close to Adams greatness when it comes to landscape photography. He truly was the master of the art form. One has to wonder what he would have made of the digital age though. Would he have embraced it and explored as a new and exciting art form or would he has resolutely stuck to film. I think he was a creative man and so I believe he would have…

Orange lily with reflection in mirror

Day 20 – The Lily

The rose is the flower and handmaiden of love - the lily, her fair associate, is the emblem of beauty, ~ Dorothea Dix I took this shot at my Mother's house. She had this lovely display of these bright orange Lily's sitting on the side in the dinning room. The light is provided by the winter sunshine streaming in through the windows and behind the Lilly you can see the rest of the bunch of flowers reflected in the mirror that hangs on the wall. I love how the light has created shadows of the other flowers in the this…

Day 13 – Start the day

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ― A.A. Milne Pooh (aka A.A. Milne) definitely was a wise philosopher but on this one one he and I will have to disagree because I am not a breakfast person. My stomach just, well, can't stomach it. I rarely eat before lunchtime but the same can not be…

Winter sun burtsing through the trees and sparkling on the water in the stream

Day 3 – Winter Sun

"The days are short The sun a spark Hung thin between The dark and dark." ~ John Updike There is nothing quite so welcome in my life this time of year as winter sun. It might not be strong enough to actually warm the soul but it can certainly lift the spirits and most definitely makes what would be a dull winters scene into something altogether more glorious.

Self portrait in Christmas tree decoration on a wintry night

Day 351 – Wintry night

“...freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin - inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night...” ~ John Geddes My favourite thing about Christmas is my decorations. Every year I buy a proper tree and cover it with pretty sparkly things. I love the soft glow of the lights in the corner of the room and the soft delicate smell that the tree fills the house with.
