A leap for freedom.
Tethered to the pedestal,
The lily pad yet lures
And then there were two! Please go and visit Paula for another of her sublime images.
Next week’s Thursday’s Special has the theme ‘reflections’. On a clear bright day this week I thought I’d get ahead of the game. But there was just enough wind to ripple the water and make my task that little bit harder. No matter! I enjoyed playing anyway.
I won’t be going anywhere near Hartlepool marina this weekend. It’s grey and wet! Maybe we’re saving the sunshine for next weekend’s long Easter Break. Wherever you are I hope you have a happy weekend. And don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face to play Six word Saturday.
You know what’s coming, don’t you? Earlier in the week a delicious sunset drew me into Sue’s Word a Week Photo Challenge. Reflect was the subject, and as Sue seemed to be suggesting, time for a little nostalgia and a few reflections of my own.
It’s been a great year, from Barcelona in November all the way back to my daughter’s wedding in February. If you click on a photo it will take you back to the original post.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but recently WordPress has started to include links to “related posts” at the bottom of the page? I presume it encourages people to stay with you and wander through your site in a way that the page layout often doesn’t. I guess Be With Us found my Weekly Photo Challenge post A Day in my Life in this manner? However it happened, I was delighted to return with them to an April day this year and a stroll on my beach. It prompted me to write this post.
One of my New Year’s resolutions must be to introduce some changes into this tired old Restlessjo site, or even be bold and start a new blog. Hope you’ll stay with me for another year, good or bad. Meanwhile, huge respect to Sue for her challenge, and all the other folks who mount challenges throughout the year. Thanks for reflecting on 2013 with me.
This time of year always has me in reflective mood. No matter how bright the sunshine, I always know that Winter is waiting, just around the corner. But we have had the occasional sparkling day in this last week or so, and I have been determined to make the most of them. Come stroll with me in my Durham gallery of sunshine and shadows.
Cee has given me the perfect opportunity this week to share a few Reflections and Shadows. Please click on the link to see some wonderful photographs.
I’m hoping your week will have more sunshine than shadow.
