black and white of drain in a puddle that looks like a starry sky. New Dimension

Day 78 – Dimensions

Starry Starry night Paint your palette blue and grey ~ Don Mclean I took this picture in the car park at my daughters school. I liked the relationship between the drain and arrow. When I got home I put it into Lightroom and made a few changes to the contrast and exposure but it still seemed to be lacking something until I looked at from a different angle. Then it took on a whole new dimension.

Sunset over river thames is a free light show

Day 64 -Free light show

“There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.” ~ Jo Walton I have been doing this project for 5 years now and this weekend was the first time I have missed a post on the actual day it should have gone live. That is what happens when you run a conference I guess. However, I refuse to let me numbers be off and so I am posting it today anyway. Enjoy the view and never miss a glorious sunset if you can help it, they are natures free light…

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 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

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

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…

Day 27 – Puddle path

"Every path hath a puddle." ~ George Herbert Just some puddles are much bigger and harder to get around than others. This corner is often like this. It is right at the beginning of one of my favourite footpaths and so I regularly have to navigate this obstacle when I go out walking. I have taken its picture before but this is definitely my favourite so far. The light in the puddle is creating such a clear reflection and you can just see a cyclist disappearing into the distance.

Droplet of rain glisten on plant stem

Day 19 – Glisten

"Into each life some rain must fall." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow We know all about rain in the UK. If there was such a thing as a national weather surely ours would be rain. Mostly it is annoying as it brings days and days of dark grey skies that seem to push down on the land but sometimes rain is a beautiful thing. The smell of summer rain at the end of a warm day for example, or a beautiful rainbow or the blue sky reflected in a puddle once the clouds are past or in this case, decorating the…

Frost covered trees reflected in the frozen ice of a puddle

Day 6 – Rooted in ice

The leaves hop, scraping on the ground. It is deep January. The sky is hard. The stalks are firmly rooted in ice. It is in this solitude, a syllable, Out of these gawky flitterings, Intones its single emptiness, The savagest hollow of winter-sound. ~ Wallace Yes this is a reflection shot. In case you are having trouble working it out it is the frost covered branches of the trees reflected in a frozen puddle and the out of focus patches are fallen leaves frozen on the top of the puddle. The only editing I have done to this is enhance…

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 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

Construction reflected in Regents Canel London at night. A City regenerating

Day 330 – Regenerating

“Dull, inert cities, it is true, do contain the seeds of their own destruction and little else. But lively, diverse, intense cities contain the seeds of their own regeneration, with energy enough to carry over for problems and needs outside themselves.” ~ Jane Jacobs I think this is so true of London. It is a city that is constantly changing, evolving, regenerating and adapting to the needs of the people in it. This particular part of London is a few streets away from where I grew up in Camden Town. The lights are being reflected in the Regents Canal. The…
