I’m not sure what this flotsam (or is it jetsam?) was, but found it along the Viking Coastal Trail
And… I’m back
So progress continues on the projects and I hope to have some work to show here soon. In the meantime, there’s no harm in continuing to document my peregrinations around Farnham and the occasional foray further afield. But I think we’ll start up with just 1 post a day, rather than the 3 I’ve been managing for the last 10 years or so…
I was struck by the light shining through my recycling bin-liner.
Another haiku project candidate from our frosty Farnham walk last week.
While we waited to go into the studio, I couldn’t help but notice the stunning reflective sunglasses of my classmate, who kindly agreed to be photographed. My camera, reflected separately in each lens, came out looking like I was focusing a particularly large pair of binoculars on her.
Petals on a wet, black bough
I continue to work on my haiku project. Finding ‘petals on wet, black boughs’ is proving difficult. Above, this week’s selection of ‘leaves on dark backgrounds.’ It is, after all, not necessary to be literal. I can call on poetic license, can I not? Click any image to see them all enlarged.
Here is Pound’s original haiku:
One and Three Ceramics*
*with apologies to Joseph Kossuth
Came upon this interesting, fabric-textured ceramic, so I took a shot of it; then pulled back for some context so one could see the wall of the bridge support it was on, then pulled back even more so one can see where that bridge is. I couldn’t find any information on what it was, who its creator was or anything. Beautiful. Click any of the images to see them all enlarged to full size.
Note to Self
Some more of the amazing sea creatures and flora at the Giant’s Causeway in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland.

My Left Foot
I was taken by the combination of colors and textures. I’m not sure anyone else will be.
Word From the People
This is what the ends of the thatch in a thatched roof look like.

Every year I’m struck by the beauty of the Spring tulips but swear they’re not really my thing and I’m not going to post lots of pretty pictures of them. This year I’ve managed to limit myself to this one.

Image and Icon
When viewed at a distance, unfortunately difficult to do in the long hallway where this was displayed – but the long view below will give some idea, this image by Karel Martens gives an impression of a skyscape with fluffy cumulus clouds, but it is made up of these little glyphs, like in a half-tone printed image.
