The Walk Home

After completing the evening’s task there’s a time that allows for thought and introspection; the walk home,

While the journey is relatively short it is a valued quiet time where anyone can feel a little more at peace and focus on whatever they choose. Occasionally stopping for a quick photograph is always within reason provided the subject sparks the imagination.

We all could likely make good use of a little more exercise as well so there’s the chance to do so by leaving the car at home in the first place.

So it’s safe to say that, along with everything else, I was able to have some time to myself for a little physical and mental well-being.

Herb Garden

Just one example of how inspiration can be drawn from the most unusual sources.

Was wandering around with the iPhone when a growth of Basil struck me as interesting and full of possibilities. Finally took about six photos from different angles and decided to post the best here.

Just goes to show you should keep an eye out for opportunities.

Very Wet

Weather conditions for today – very wet indeed! But in the spirit of making the most of the situation I decided to take a photo or two just to hopefully develop those skills further.

Jury is still out if there’s been any actual improvement.

Yup, it did rain throughout the day.

To celebrate what is likely the arrival of summer I’d like to share a few quick photos taken yesterday. Count on seeing some previews of art in the works during the coming weeks.

Weather Report

Rained moderately throughout most the night resulting in a rather moist morning. This time I bring proof!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Everything todays seemed to fall into place just right so I was determined to make the most of it. Shortly after dawn saw hours dedicated to the all-important art pursuits which were carried out as far as I could take them at that stage.

Throughout the remainder of the day I could be found mowing the lawn, washing the car, taking care of laundry along with the regular obligations already in place. I’m almost sure there are other completed task which came and went but I’m not the kind to make lists of such things.

Usually each day starts with only a rough idea what may actually go on since procrastination is still one of my more dominant traits. Luckily things do fall into place and get done for the most part.

Took a couple minutes for creative photography and editing for my own amusement. Some would consider the subject matter questionable but sometimes testing boundaries can yield favourable results.

Hopefully after the sun sets I won’t be left with the usual feeling that not much was done with the day at all. We’ll find out shortly.

That’s More Like It!

Fortunately yesterday’s unreasonable weather was short lived and now noticeably improved. Still slightly cold for my purposes but that’s scheduled to improve during the coming days do we’ll just have to be content with sunshine.

In a couple days painting should resume but the shortage of supplies has me concerned. We’re trying to gradually work back from the pandemic so I have to take my lumps just like everyone else.

Tried experimenting with different approaches and materials but the results just weren’t all that impressive. Once you work out a way to create something memorable it’s hard to settle for second best.

But they say patience has it’s rewards so I’ll have to simply work away at planning and taking the occasional photo.

Garden Leaves

Just a peek at something I enjoy viewing daily during my travels. Spring has certainly turned things around and should bring a remarkable summer!
