Catching a moment to read whilst the world rushes by.

This is a very experimental shot.

architecture and morality

“Sealand forgets her friends
She’ll not leave them again
Mother, sister and home
These arms fail you so”

This place has quite a history.

Doel.

photography101: weekend two:2 (playing with light)

This is the first time I have tried time lapse photography.

It seemed to fit our theme today on WordPress Photo 101.

I had a lot of fun figuring out how to do this.

As you can see, I have a little figuring to do yet 😉

the (un) natural world of doel

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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…

photography101: landmark

atownend_20141101_006162

I must admit I did not go out and take this photo this morning in direct response to today’s landmark theme.

However, in my defence 😉 I took it just over a week ago at a famous local landmark and in taking the shot I wanted to capture a different angle. So, I think that probably both excuses me and fits the brief?

I was struck by how the line of people clambering up the monument looked like ants climbing along the ridge.

Taken at La butte du Lion, Waterloo 1815.

Alone

Thoughts, once I cared.

“The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”

photography101: bliss

Beseeching

I am listening…

“Of all the conceptions of pure bliss that people and poets have dreamed of, listening to the harmony of the spheres always seemed to me the highest and most intense.”
– Hesse

From martelaars plein.
