Book of Peace…more..

Yesterday was a rainy day here in Oz.. the sort of day that you wanted to be by the fire.  I love taking photos most every day, so my mind wandered and I started wondering what I could do on a dark dark Sunday afternoon.

Book of Peace ~ yesterday’s post was something I tried, but I wanted to try some more with the same subjects and with different lenses to see what results I could get.

These are my results.

Daisies are one of my favourite flowers and this beautiful old book was a gift from my Grandmother many years ago.  Treasures 🙂

    1. ..and thanks to you as always Fabio for your kind words.
      We really need the rain presently, so all is well as long as I have a warm fire and my camera 🙂


    1. Thanks Cybele… it’s such a beautiful old book.
      It had been put away forgotten for years… now I think it’ll be on my bedside for a while.
      I think it’s become my new fast favourite… it’s really beautiful and full of poems and the like by well known Authors, Poets etc.

      Here’s a poem from within, to share with You 🙂

      ~ Peace and Rest ~

      Under this tree, where light and shade
      Speckle the grass like a Thrush’s breast,
      Here in this green and quiet place,
      I give myself to peace and rest.

      The peace of my contented mind,
      That is to me a wealth untold-
      When the moon has no more silver left,
      And the sun’s at the end of his gold.

      W.H. Davies
      from the book ‘A book of Peace’ by Elizabeth Goudge.
