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

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
