July 9, 2015 … desperate day

Nothing seemed to fire yesterday.

Mt Climie

Sunlight on Mt Climie

Some days are like that, but I hate it when it happens. In Wellington, snow is unusual, to the extent that when it happens, the news media write about it. It arrived on the hill tops yesterday, and there was hail lower down.  There were moments during an otherwise drab day when the sun peeked through and picked out icy ridges. This image is Mt Climie, as seen from my bedroom window.


Unidentified shell – just here to pad out the numbers

As the day came to a close with nothing much “in the can” I resorted to still life and got close to one of Mary’s sea shells.

I hope for better things today.


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.
