Proof that fruit is bad for you, no matter how nice it looks, courtesy of The Brothers Grimm:
“Now the apple had been so artfully made that only the red half was poisoned. Snow-White longed for the beautiful apple, and when she saw that the peasant woman was eating part of it she could no longer resist, and she stuck her hand out and took the poisoned half. She barely had a bite in her mouth when she fell to the ground dead.”
Shockingly, it’s been over a year since I last updated my blog or my photography blog. I’m ashamed of myself and my laxity but I think it’s time to rectify that.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and also my favourite. I just love autumn and winter; I love the colours, I love the weather and I love the general feeling of excitement around Hallowe’en, Bonfire Night and, of course, Christmas. Dog walking in a frosty park is a joy for both the dog and me. Yesterday was a gloriously crisp, white morning and Martha and I had a good game of chase in the low morning sun, when I managed to photograph her waiting for me to throw her ball. Here is Martha, intent on play.
Autumn is here, soon to be winter, and it’s my favourite time of the year. I absolutely adore the period between mid-October and early January (yes, I even like the dark nights and mornings!) and I find it especially good for photography; the autumn colours turning into spindly bare-branched trees, low-sun, mist, fog, snow… some of my favourite photography subjects. We had a beautiful morning on Sunday so I managed to get out and take a few photos, the first of which, November morning sun, is posted below.
It’s been some time since I last updated and since I got my camera out, but we woke up to a beautifully foggy morning today and seeing as I just can’t resist the fog it seemed like the perfect opportunity to take my camera to the park and take advantage of the weather.
Here is the first of my shots from this morning, Foggy Avenue.
Autumn is such a beautiful season, full of rich sublime colours. I took a walk with my camera a couple of weekends ago to photograph the leaves and was really pleased to see some flowers still out. Photos of the leaves will follow, but for now, here are some of the autumn blooms.
I’ve been neglecting my photography in favour of writing lately, but yesterday was a lovely autumnal day (and for once not raining… ) so we took the dog for a long walk in the park opposite our house and I took my camera. I was really pleased with one of the images I took. I’m also quite taken with the colour version, so may also add that to my photography website in due course.
