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…

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…

Day 305 – A Different Shade

“I find it incredibly amazing how at every sunset, the sky is a different shade. No cloud is ever in the same place. Each day is a new masterpiece. A new wonder. A new memory.” ~ Sanober Khan I think this quote sums up perfectly my love of sunsets. No two are ever the same, the light, the colours, the shapes, the silhouettes they form can turn a fairly plain view into something utterly spectacular.

Day 294 – Little Gems

“The morning was full of sunlight and hope.” ~ Kate Chopin I am not a morning person, well not an early morning person. I much prefer the night hours and we rarely go to bed before midnight. I am happy with that. However when it comes to photography it does mean that I often miss those golden hours when the sun rises and the world awakens. Not always though, sometimes if I know the weather is going to be just right then I will make the effort and go and greet the morning with my camera and sometimes the world…

Day 287 – Secrets

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

Day 285 – Poised

"I like the idea of taking off like a bird." ~ Florence Welch Can you imagine what that must be like? To be able to just spread your wings and lift yourself up into the air, gracefully and with ease. To be able to fly above the world on a whim. I think we can dream about but I don't think we can ever really appreciate what it is to be able to fly. I wanted to capture this Heron just as it took off but sadly the image I got was too blurred. However I do like how in…
