I know there can be exceptions, but hospitals generally don’t cheer me up.
After visiting my friend, my mood was definitely aligned with the somewhat sad grey day outside. I wandered aimlessly, hoping for something inspirational. In Evans Bay, there is a boatshed, the colours of which have earned it a place in many images by many photographers. Its owners have just about completed a re-paint, with the addition of an advertisement for their business. There was a brief patch of calm water to reflect the clash of colours so I tried it.
In the afternoon, I wandered around Lowry Bay as the light was fading. It was a very low tide so I went out onto the rocks at the Northern end of the bay, treading on the copious beds of Neptune’s Necklace seaweed.
A little more to the West, the day was fading, and this really caught the mood of the day for me.
That’s all for now
