Sometimes a picture says it all. This was the beautiful sunset that blazed across the sky when I got home.
PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT: A WALK BY THE SEA!
I am trying to set myself regular photography projects. This weekend my project was to create a photo-journey of Brighton and Hove. I walked along Hove seafront to Brighton and basically snapped anything I found interesting. It was a great chance to use my new camera and it made me really take a good look at my surroundings. It was such a beautiful day and it felt lovely to be walking around in the sunshine after what feels like months of winter!
A WALK IN THE PARK…
If ever there were a spring day so perfect,
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze
that it made you want to throw
open all the windows in the house
and unlatch the door to the canary’s cage,
indeed, rip the little door from its jamb,
a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden bursting with peonies
seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking
a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table,
releasing the inhabitants
from their snow-covered cottage
so they could walk out,
holding hands and squinting
into this larger dome of blue and white,
well, today is just that kind of day.
