“life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes
don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow
let reality be reality
let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like”

photography101: warmth (a hint of)


I woke early this morning to see today’s #photo101 challenge was “warmth”.

Driving north along the motorway, with the fields covered in a blanket of mist, I wondered how to respond. And at the same wished the theme had been “misty”…or “cold”…

In the same meeting room all day, I lacked inspiration (for the theme anyway).

Taking a short walk at lunchtime, I was left cold by the sunlight and autumnal colours, they seemed too cliched, a little too obvious.

Then, back in the meeting room, I noticed the sun shining through the window and reflecting off the hot air radiators lining the walls.

So, I may be stretching a point, but here is my slice of “warmth” from an office complex just outside Amsterdam.
