A camera phone just does not ‘do it’  Yesterday as I looked along the riverbank I spied  amongst the usual Canada Geese a pair of geese that were ‘different’  They were too far away to photograph with my ‘phone’ to get a decent picture.  I had hoped they would return today but to no avail. (I had my camera ready today!) Maybe tomorrow……..


Until then a picture of Canada Geese


Taken when the weather was a little warmer  (and not on a ‘phone’)



Reflections and Selfies

Whenever I take a photo I always look for reflections.  It comes from my preference of being behind the camera, and not the subject so to speak.  However there has been times when I have inadvertently caught my own reflection in a shot.


However this was not one of those times.

It is a bit of a spooky shot in as much as the subject looks as though it is leaping out of the water.


The Changing Riverside

Every day the view along the riverside changes, some changes are subtle and may be missed by the casual viewer.  Some however leap out at you.





The View……….. it’s a cha cha cha Changing!

Everything changes, somethings slowly, somethings at  faster pace.

Or just Daydreaming

I have always been a daydreamer, I would often tuck myself away in a corner as  a child so I could have  daydream time to my self.  Now of course I no longer need to tuck my self away but I do take a time out for a daydream or two, It helps with inspiration for my writing and if outside I often find the local wildlife popping around to take a peek at me, not to mention the neighbours cats who always sense when I am in the garden and hop up onto my lap to have a quick snooze while I sit in my deck chair with a mug of tea and a hot buttered scone.
