This is one of several pictures I’ve taken this week that really appeals to me. The picture was taken at the Cockle Ponds on one of my morning walks. It is a favourite picture because the reflection of the tree is almost perfect, not quite but good enough. The frustrating thing is that I couldn’t either get rid of the building, or position myself to include it in the reflection. This is one of several pictures of this type that I took this particular morning. They all pretty much suffer from the same problem. Here’s another example;
OK, so the reflection isn’t quite as good, but still not bad. To the extent that I like this one as well.
Then there’s this one;
I’m also doing the 365 project, I used this picture. I like the colouring, the position of the boat, the ripples and the sunbeam across the water. One person commented that the scene reminded them of Venice. I have to say that it does for me also. But that isn’t the reason I like it.
Then there is the jelly fish. Purely by chance I decided to walk past the Cockle Ponds. Of course, the jelly fish were there. I then made the mistake of identifying the species. Not only that, but I learned a little bit about the life cycle. So of course, I am now interested. To the extent that I am becoming possessive about them. I even wondered if I could catch one and keep it to observe it’s progress. I decided that was probably going too far, so I’ve decided that I will watch them in situ. The next time I go to the ponds they will probably all be gone, having been flushed out to sea. I’ll be upset of course, because even over only a couple of days, I have enjoyed watching them, and want to continue to do so. It’s not a good picture, but here is a Moon Jelly Fish;
Then, on Wednesday, the sun was amazing. A blood red sun, comming up behind the buildings;
The colouring of the sun behind the building was in my opinion quite striking. I like it.
Thursday’s picture was something a bit different. Sometimes a picture attracts your attention, as this one did, I don’t know if in the greater scheme of things it is a good picture, but I like it;
Then of there was the Thursday Post – the Feng Shui of the cup rack. How could I not include that?
And that takes us on to Friday, Other than the Jelly Fish, which had all decided to crowd together in the south west corner, where presumably, the water was warmest. They are difficult to photograph, so I’m using a different picture. All the mornings have been crisp and cold, the last couple have had a fresh wind as well. Yesterday’s was particularly fresh, but all of the walks were very enjoyable. Here’s the Friday picture. You tell what the wind was like from the flags – blowing from a north easterly direction, it was not warm.
It’s been an interesting week, and I hope you’ve enjoyed this review.
