On the afternoon this image was taken (in October last year) – there was a stillness and beauty about the end of the day..

The weather had changed.  An inversion layer brought misty air, which carried the last of the sunlight upon it’s particles..

Tiny insects flitting around, sparkling in the sunlight.. and the sun’s rays making all things ordinary, beautiful for a few fleeting moments..

..and then, the day was done.

5 minutes of random..

5 minutes is an idea shared in a post by Desley Jane and I thought I’d like to try it. Check out Desley’s post here

The idea is to take as many pics in 5 mins of the one location or spot…

Perhaps I took a slightly different approach, as I decided to photograph my table… The things sitting and life happening on my table – ‘the stuff’, light, shadow and movement – with me sitting in one spot. I would like to try this again when I’m out and about in the one location… that would be fun.

For now though, these are some of the images taken within my 5 minutes. I wanted to see what I could ‘see’ within the very ordinary and random!

A bit of fun to start the year.  Thanks Desley Jane 🙂

Holiday-ish…

Happy New Year everyone!

It’s the 10th of January as I write and I’m still in holiday mode.  Just the last couple of days I’ve picked up my camera again and it’s great to be refreshed and ready to go for another year… well nearly  anyway… back to routine next week.

For now though, I wanted to pop my head in and say ‘hello’ and Happy New Year to you!

Early morning warbling..
Early morning warbling..

I love Magpies and their beautiful song… This pair were singing outside my kitchen window. It made me think of this song.. and I started humming and singing… Hope you do too!

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin’ on by
You know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good…. etc..

See you soon  🙂
