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…

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.

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.

Day 90 – Dear Brighton

"Ah, dear Brighton —piers, queers and racketeers." ~ Noel Coward Definitely a quote that is of its time although Brighton still have a strong relationship with piers and continues to be a cosmopolitan young town that attracts a very diverse population but I am fairly sure its association with racketeers is someone diminished unless you class the overpriced hoteliers which have capitalised on Brighton trendy popular image to hike up room prices to crazy levels. I have a huge soft spot for Brighton. I lived there as a student for a year, as a Londoner I felt at home there.…

Day 86 – Beautiful Water

"There brews He beautiful water! And beautiful it always is! You see it glistening in the dewdrop; you hear it singing in the summer rain; you see it sparkling in the ice gem when the trees seem loaded with rich jewels!... dancing in the hailstorm, leaping, foaming, dashing...! See how it weaves a golden gauze for the setting sun, and a silvery tissue for the midnight moon!" ~John Bartholomew Gough,

Light show in regeneration area of Kings Cross regents canel relfections

Day 78 – Regeneration

When I was a child and young adult this part of Kings Cross in London was a run down almost derelict part of the city. It was definitely an area that you did not wander around in on your own at night. Now after a multi million pound regeneration project it is completely transformed from its former rundown self into a thriving business area with offices, shops and restaurants. It is virtually unrecognizable from the place I knew as a youth.
