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.

Day 365 – 3D living

“I like photography as a recording device. It's the best possible two-dimensional representation of 3D living things that we have." ~ Andrew Zuckerman

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.

Day 347 – Late afternoon

"How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?" ~ Dr. Seuss

workman reflected in tunnel walls, humanity of the moment.

Day 344 – Humanity of the moment

"There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph." ~ Robert FrankPeople were constantly pouring along this walkway which had been set up to protect the pedestrians from the construction site above the road. I waited, hoping to get a shot of it empty and then this happened. Not the shot I had envisaged, but a much better one.

Day 337 – Ripple effect

"The idea that everything is purposeful really changes the way you live. To think that everything that you do has a ripple effect, that every word that you speak, every action that you make affects other people and the planet." ~ Victoria Moran We seem to live in a world were it has become perfectly acceptable to say the most horrible thing, to peddle messages of hate and intolerance with no regard for anyone but yourself. You can 'joke' about assaulting women, mock people with physical disabilities, call all men rapist based on their nationality. You can tell bare faced…

Day 323 – Spherical Bristol

"There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature. Therefore, buildings must have no straight lines or sharp corners." ~ Antoni Gaudi Sadly having all our buildings this way would just not be practical especially in this country where we have a horrible lack of space. It is very crowded in the UK. However there is definitely something wonderful about a spherical building. This is globe houses the Planetarium at the Science Centre in Bristol. It is a wonderfully bold structure that sits on the edge of a pedestrianised square like some space ship from the future.

Day 309 – multidimensional

“I really love this city. It’s so very beautiful. It’s so multidimensional." ~ Umair Naeem Ahhh London. I don't know if this quote is about London but it doesn't matter. It sums it up perfectly. It is so alive. You don't get that buzz in a small town or village that you do in a big city. London is the best of cities in my opinion but then most people claim that about their home city.

Day 295 – Going Places

"Railway termini are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return." ~ E. M. Forster I can be a bit of a restless person. I love going places. I love airports and planes, ports and boats and stations and trains. There is something about them that is filled with promise. I have not traveled enough but in the last few years I have made up for that a tiny bit. I still have lots more plans, I just need more money and more free time to…

Day 288 – But a view

“Life is but a view through a window. We are that window.” ~ Joseph Rain This was taken in stairwell between the two viewing platform inside the Shard. I just loved the light and the way the mirror on the wall reflected not just my husband but the amazing view of London and some of the people on the lower viewing deck.
