Solitude #2

I just loved this challenge so much, I have to post another one. I am delighted to stay two minutes from a lovely walk along the beach. Today it was cloudy, but sometimes I think the sky is wonderful when there are clouds in motion that allow rays of light to play little games with the water and the sky. Again, I was walking alone with my earphones in, and it felt like the people walking their dogs were only there to be part of the pictures.



Solitude #1

Solitude is one of my favourite things. Taking a few days of annual leave, I went a drive up to Perth on my own and had a peaceful time surrounded by the serenity of the Scottish countryside. There is so much beauty in this country, I am so grateful I live here. Here is one of the photos I took driving along Loch Tay, it took my breath away.



Ah – good old PMA! I was just talking about this with a colleague today. Some people have it naturally (very rare and special individuals) the rest of us have to constantly work at it. The benefits of practising it are limitless in my opinion!

How do you define it with a photograph? Well, I am going to use this opportunity to post more NYC pictures, since it is a city steeped in historic optimism and what represents that better than the Statue of Liberty? Here is the statue from Liberty Island, the statue as a minute dot on the horizon from the Empire State Building, and a statue of the man who designed it, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.



Alphabet – NYC

I was in NYC the other week and it should be renamed alphabet city! Funnily enough, it kind of adds to the buzz of the city. I loved New York and it’s diversity. Here are a few alphabet pictures. The car was in Chinatown, the inscription in New York Public Library, Times Square was full of signs and the last picture is of the memorial waterfalls at Freedom Tower, which I thought were incredibly peaceful and touching – the sun thought so too.
