Girl jumping in wave on beach at sunset Tunisia as they come ashore

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…

Water spilling over rock in stream rewards

Day 160 – Simple Rewards

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life.” ~ John Burroughs Life can be very hectic. Work, family and everything that those two things entail can sometimes consume us. I know that many days go by where I feel like I am constantly chasing my tail, dashing from one thing to another,…

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…

Lucky Lucy Hastings fishing boat

Day 153 – Lucy at sea

There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea. ~ Joseph Conrad  This is the Lucky Lucy and despite the fact she looks like a pleasure boat she is in fact part of the Hastings Fishing Fleet. She does stand out though and most of them look like the traditional trawlers that you would expect but Lucy looks more like she should be offering rides not casting nets. However her winged companions seem to hint that she is heading back into port with a good catch on board.

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.

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…

mating male swan display

Day 130 – Display of love

“Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.” ~ William Shakespeare I took this shot a few weeks ago at a local park. Further down the pond there was another swan gliding about who was clearly this swans lady love because he would head off down to her end of the pond and they would bow their necks to each other in a display of love and drift in gentle contentment around one another. Sadly they were slightly to far away for me to get a really go picture of them but when the other male swans started 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.

Men sitting by pond fishing taking in serenity

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…

Day 98 – Spring March

A Light exists in Spring Not present on the Year At any other period -- When March is scarcely here ~ Emily Dickinson I know March has been and gone but I took this image right at the beginning of that month when winter still lingered, the trees stood bare and the signs of spring were only evident in the light that spilled from the skies. How much difference a month can make when seasons come and go.
