Mundane and meaningful objects
Beautiful everyday things
I enjoy being out in the countryside, enjoying the scenery and nature in general. The things that make up beautiful scenery can be the things we see all the time – grasses, a few plants, a tree or two, a stream, sunshine, some patchwork fields and hills. If you take each item on its own, it can be ordinary and mundane, but put them all together, or let nature put them all together, and you have something EXTRA ordinary.

Sky Garden, London
Reach for the Sky
This week Cee has given us a choice of subject, and asks us to pick a topic from her photo. I recently visited one of the higher buildings in the City of London, and the extra special attraction of this building, apart from the amazing views, is the SkyGarden, which is on floors 34 to 36 (luckily there are plenty high speed lifts to get to the top quickly!) The garden has a restaurant, plenty places to sit and chat, and the covered gardens are full of exotic tropical plants to soothe the stressed mind.
Hope you enjoy the views of my lines and shapes!

Waiting for the sunset
Serenity is…sitting on a rock, resting after a slight climb to the top, having a cold beer, and waiting to watch an African sunset.
A perfect sight

I am visiting my family in Norway at the moment, and this is what we woke up to this morning. The untrodden, fresh snow looks so pretty and it is surprisingly mild and calm outside, the first snowfall always brings lots of excitement to children and adults. We spent some time tramping through the snow, making fresh footprints, clearing the pathways and steps, and maybe later we will build a snowman!
