Continuing my theme of the last couple of weeks, I ventured out this afternoon with the dual purpose of (1) bagging my 10,000 steps with my red (tangerine) Fitbit, and (2) capturing some optimistic images for this week’s WordPress photo challenge. A few things caught my eye.
As you can see.
And the route I took in search of optimism.

we find delight in the most loathsome things
some furtherance of hell each new day brings
and yet we feel no horror in that rank advance”

My response to today’s theme on #photo101 was a spider’s web captured in a window frame in the abandoned polder village of Doel.
The main target for my camera yesterday was the graffiti which covers almost every vertical surface in Doel.
So as an extra #photo101 contribution this evening, here is a short slide show featuring the (un) natural world of Doel…
And for those having trouble seeing the slideshow on mobile devices here are the images…

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”
