August 4, 2015 … teetering on the brink

I came close to defaulting today.


Colourful knitware

Images on this blog are always an expression of the photo-a-day habit. Some days give me more photos than others, but yesterday was almost over before I took a shot. My friend in hospital consumed a lot of my day, and the weather was disgusting anyway. And so my new macro lens got some exercise. Mary knits. A colourful baby bonnet was my first subject.


Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness

I have done candles before, and had a new technique in mind, but couldn’t persuade Photoshop to cooperate. Instead we have a simple image.

And I kept the flag flying.


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.

  1. The last quote is so true and apt for the day. Also a nice image. Your friend will be grateful for your attention.

    I’m with Margaret on the candle. Would it not be correct to say that this image probably would not have happened, but for your hospitalized friend? Thank him for us.
