Warning – There are a few photographs towards the end of this post which may be upsetting, although there is a happy ending…
Birds are fascinating to me. There are large birds, tiny birds, they are resourceful, clever, delicate yet tough little beauties, they survive harsh weather and have to dodge so many predators. They are beautiful.
Here is my contribution for this weeks #SundayStills photography challenge, ‘For the Birds‘ hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt.

It’s amazing the things you forget. I often look back and reflect on the things we’ve experienced, but more so at this time of year. I find that photographs help immensely with jolting my memory, so I turned to my mobile phone to reflect on the photographs of 2019. I found myself, smiling and laughing along with remembering a few things that I’d totally forgotten we’d done.

We’re nearing the end of 2019 and it’s a good time for reflection.
Personally, I’ve found 2019 to be an interesting year…

This may be a long one, oh heck where do I start? As a child I was never still, always doing something, trying new things and I guess, as a 54 year old, nothing has changed there 😀
Drawing & Painting
My dad was a very good artist, I guess he passed that love of drawing down to me, because I have been known to sit and sketch and get totally lost in it. I particularly love to draw animals.

I have a diary which I started when my two boys were little, hopefully one of them will want it when I pop my clogs. I write about what’s happening in mine and my families’ lives and accompany the writing with little drawings. They’re not brilliant drawings, but I enjoy creating this book to pass on for my boys in the future. Here’s a little sneaky peek Continue reading “#SundayStills – Favourite Sports or Hobbies”→
When I think of the word – Stillness I’m taken back to many memories of where I have stood or sat in a place and realised there was no or very little noise, no movement, just enough silence for me to close my mind and to absorb what was around me, the breathtaking scenery, nature – the beauty that is our planet.
I’ve been obsessed with the stunning swans who seem to have taken over the banking around the canal where we live, so I couldn’t resist putting forward my entry for this weeks ‘Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge’, where the topic is Feathers.
Cee offers some great photo challenges, why not check them out Here.
