During October I've again been photographing around the local meadow, wooded area and stream, taking pictures for Cardinal Guzman's Changing Seasons photography challenge. For those of you who don't know, local to me is a little village in the east of England, near the border between Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. The meadow is my favourite place in...

Every Wednesday, all across the internet, bloggers post photographs with no words to explain them. Here is mine.
In amongst the minutiae, the everyday, the hither and thither of life rushing by, there’s no time to talk, no time to rest, no time… Stop. Breathe deep. Tilt your face to the sun; feel the warmth on your skin. The world will wait. Listen to the harmonies of nature’s music as wind strummed trees join in chorus with buzzing... Continue Reading →
I'm re-posting this because for some bizarre reason half of the post vanished. It's now back with the full three lines it was meant to have! She'd thought he was her beacon, her guiding light through the treacherous shoals. Too late she'd discovered he was merely a will-o'-the-wisp leading her into dangerous waters. Now she stands...

A Walk in the Park Jake stumbled along the familiar route, drawn to the warm light shining through his window. Home. He was nearly home. The chill air bit into his exposed arms, the thin shirt doing little to warm him, and he shivered. His thoughts skittered as his gaze caught on the trees lining the path. This... Continue Reading →
Gentle light caresses fields shorn of their summer abundance as the newly awoken sun peeks above the horizon, tinting the wide sky in pastel shades. A lonely blackbird breaks the lingering hush of the pre-dawn hours. Soon it is joined by its fellows, and their voices rise in joyous chorus. Peace settles upon me as I breathe in...

Visions of darkness bar the pathway ahead, fear, anger and hatred tangling ankles in tendrils of flame, binding feet into immobility. Hold tight. Breathe deep. Specters woven of inconstant sorrow will not remain triumphant. Joy yet lies beyond. This post is for Musin' with Susan's Macro Moments challenge. This week's photo was taken in the meadow at the...

Second Thoughts Anxiety set her thoughts asway, her certainty vacillating as she gazed over the garden: this was insane... she wasn't ready for such a change... but... but... She drew a deep breath. But she loved him, she couldn't deny that he completed her, and tomorrow... tomorrow she would say, 'I do.' This post is for Sonya's Three... Continue Reading →
Unceasing Strife "Is that food ready yet, woman?" Julian sighed - here we go again. "It'll be ready when its done. If you got off your lazy backside and helped out, maybe it'd be ready sooner!" Every day it was the same: Henry would snarl and Edna' strident voice would rise in response. He'd found... Continue Reading →

If you hear merriment echoing enticingly amidst lengthening shadows, strands of beguilement entwining your senses whilst sunbeams scatter like raindrops upon fertile soil, look carefully: there you'll find ephemeral shelters emerging for other-wordly festivities I photographed a lot of toadstools around the meadow and in the little wooded area during September. As I had a few too many to include in the Changing Seasons post, I... Continue Reading →
He'd been standing in line, waiting his turn, for far longer than he cared to remember. The sign continued to blink idly in the distance; the column shuffled slowly forwards. Bureaucracy, it seemed, wasn't just a problem in the land of the living. This post is for Sonya's Three Line Tales challenge.

sun-kissed wings shimmer calm affirmations exchanged connection achieved Yesterday morning I was sitting on a bench in the corner of the meadow, my eyes closed as I listened to the birds singing, my face tilted to the sun as I enjoyed its warmth on my skin. I was feeling incredibly relaxed and happy, and connected to... Continue Reading →
It's a few days later than I'd intended, but here's my September post for Cardinal Guzman's Changing Seasons photography challenge.
