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.

Dew drop reflection sky in green grass beneath your feet

Day 197 – Beneath your feet

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” ~ Henry David Thoreau And if you look very carefully you can find what is over your head also captured in the world beneath your feet. You just have to get down and dirty sometimes to see it.

Rita's gelato Philadelphia sign with evening sky loves

Day 196 – Philly loves

"I believe gelato is meant to be treated as medicine and taken daily as a prescription." ~ Betsy Brandt I love Philadelphia. After London it is my favourite city. It has many wonderful things going for it, the people, the food, the shops, the weather, the history and so much more. I have many loves in the city, places, restaurant, shops etc and one of them is Rita's. We have nothing like this in the UK. Not a thing, it just doesn't exist. The ice cream van and parlours you get in some towns are nice but they don't even…

European flag against the sky in london united

Day 195 – United strength

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” ~ J.K. Rowling 10 days ago we went to London to join the March for Europe demonstrations. We were hopeful that many other people would join us and they did. Approximately 40,000 in fact. It was a peaceful, friendly, march that snaked it's way through central London. I have no idea if what we did will achieve anything. Sadly the politicians seem hell bent on pursuing this plan but then the pessimist in me thinks that maybe they know the truth of the above quote…

Clifton Susupension bridge over the Avon Gorge

Day 192 – Bridge the gap

“Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world Like a Colossus" ~  William Shakespeare This is the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge. It spans the Avon gorge and links the city of Bristol to Clifton on the other side. It was opened in 1864 and really is an amazing feat of engineering. The weight of the bridge, including chains, rods, girders and deck is approximately 1,500 tons. It has become an iconic landmark of Bristol and is now very much part of the beautiful view down the Avon gorge.

Dark clouds over field black and white UK referendum

Day 184 – Dark Clouds

"There's a bright spot in every dark cloud." ~ Bruce Beresford Dark clouds have formed over the UK this week. We are a country in turmoil, politically, financially and socially. I have always been happy to live in the country. Despite its many problems and issues it has always felt like a place of tolerance and kindness. Now I feel that the dark clouds of something far more sinister are looming and my country is deeply divided, without leadership and very possibly in a financial crisis it will never recover from.

Empty Ferris wheel pods brighton against blue sky

Day 180 – Empty Pods

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." ~ Elliott Erwitt What I found interesting about these pods was that despite the fact it was a lovely day and the beach front was busy with people enjoying themselves this wheel continued to slowly turn round and round with virtually no customers. I have no idea why that is, or if it was just an oddity or a regular thing…

Plastic icecream sign against blue sky

Day 175 – Icecream Days

“It was the color of someone buying you an ice cream cone for no reason at all.” ~ Lemony Snicket I don't quite know what that colour is but I do definitely know that feeling. There is something warm and gentle about that moment when for no other reason than you can, someone buys you an ice cream cone. In the UK that would be from the Icecream Van which you find all over the place. One of the things that bemused Michael when he first came to the UK was that no matter what the weather you can find…

hint of Evening light through trees

Day 165 – Hint of sunlight

"We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts." ~ William Hazlitt I think there is a lot of truth to this statement. We don't just see nature, we experience it and as such a photograph can only hint at that moment. You can not show the bird song, or the buzz of the bees, or the warmth of the sun on your skin, or the gentle movement of the leaves as the breezes flows through them. You can't capture those in a photo but you can definitely hint at them and hopefully if…

London building brutalist style

Day 163 – Brutalist

"Brutalist architecture arouses passion and fury in equal measure. Of all the styles of housing in London, none is more polarising." ~ Kate Watson-Smyth It is easy to look at this building, a perfect example of Brutalistic architecture, and see something ugly. It is harsh and rough and imposing and yet, or maybe because of that, I find something hugely appealing about it. It is unapologetic, function over form, and that grittiness feels powerful and strong to me. Brutalist architecture flourished in post war London with the need for rebuilding and more housing. Many of those buildings are now in a…

London city skyline higher

Day 150 – High Towers

"I don’t know what London’s coming to — the higher the buildings the lower the morals." - Noël Coward I wonder what Noël Coward would make of London today. I bet he never envisioned it would have such a towering skyline and that much of the London that he knew would be completely gone to be replaced by men in suits dealing in obscene sums of money from buildings that reached up into the sky.

Roller coaster Dorney Park rise and fall

Day 142 – Rise and fall

“With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coaster ride, the rise and fall of which defines our journey. It is both scary and exciting at the same time.” ~ Sebastian Cole I don't like roller coasters. It is just not my kind of excitement however my children love the damn things but they don't seem to mind my lack of participation as I am always happy to be the 'looker after' of everyone's stuff whilst they go and defy the laws of gravity.
