August 19, 2014 … and then my heart with pleasure fills, and dances with the daffodils*

With lambs and daffodils everywhere, the imminence of spring is undeniable.

Daffodils

The slipstream from passing trucks and buses caused them all to nod vigorously

Apple trees and cheery trees are in bloom, so no matter how bad the Northern summer has been, our turn is coming again. This particular “host of golden daffodils”*  was nodding  in the gentle breeze on a traffic island near Pomare.

Bridge

Pedestrian bridge, Upper Hutt

Yesterday afternoon was almost warm so I deliberately went in search of previously unseen (by me) views. I came upon this bridge in Upper Hutt. It is a pedestrian bridge that has obviously been there for some time, but until now I had never seen it.

If you look closely there is a pedestrian disappearing in the distance

It was mid-afternoon on a weekday so that may explain why it remained empty for most of the time I was there.

It has been a long day.

About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
