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.

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…

Day 321 – Light movement

"Light in nature creates the movement of colors." ~ Robert DelaunayAnd light is what creates photographs and sometimes it plays the game perfectly and glides into a moment in just the right way.

Day 317 – Wild beauty

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.” ~ Bram Stoker I love the sea. No matter what time of year it is there is something so alive and exhilarating about it that lifts my spirits. Even on cold cloudy days there is a wild beauty about it that makes me smile. In fact maybe on those days it is even more beautiful than on days when it glimmers perfectly in the summer sun.

Day 316 – Big world

“The world's big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” ~ John Muir I want to see so much of it but time and money are rather limiting however I am glad that I have the luxury of a camera in my life so that I can capture the bits I do get to see. It is very easy to take something like that for granted leaving in the west. Everyone has a camera now but that is not actually everyone, only everyone in this part of the world. There are lots more…
