I’m not a fan of the ‘selfie’ but I do like to enter into the spirit of things so have decided to post some ‘selfie’ reflections, neither intended… the first was taken at the Village Green Festival, where my eldest son performed live, singing and playing guitar, in a festival setting for the first time. The photo is a reflection of me through his sunglasses and in the second… I was aiming to take a photo of my Mutley dog in the boot of my car after a long romp over the rolling Dartmoor hills… she (and we) had a wonderful time!
I guess the camera is a part of my heart and soul so any ‘selfie’ was always going to have the camera in front of my face!
A reflection of me through my son’s sunglasses… I love the way the photo reflects again through the lens!
Mutley… who is also a reflection of me… she is a part of me.

I’ve been otherwise occupied for a wee bit, with goodness knows exactly what but it’s certainly kept me busy!
I hope a merry Christmas was had in every corner of the blogosphere and I wish one and all a very happy, healthy and peaceful new year!
This weeks photo challenge is all about the ‘object‘…
Flowers in your window…
A bit of old boat rope!
Statue outside a building somewhere in London…!
St Paul’s Cathedral with quite a large Christmas tree dwarfed in front of it!
Lovely Gelato… roll on summer!

This weeks photo challenge got me thinking about what the sea really means to me, how does it make me feel… there are so many emotions the sea evokes. When I have been away from it for a while, I miss it, I feel it’s pull… it makes me feel calm, peaceful, able to breathe deeply… renewed, alive, invigorated and full of life’s possibilities.
The photo below was taken on a beach we had stumbled upon quite by accident (sometimes the best kind) whilst looking for a completely different one! The perfect afternoon turned into a glorious evening with an amazing sunset which I couldn’t capture because my camera battery died! Gutted and lesson learned!
I could sit for hours, listening to the waves breaking on the sand… staring out at the distant horizon… life and the world is beautiful!

These were taken last Tuesday on a steam train ride from Paignton to Dartmouth in Devon… I think they go quite well with today’s Daily Prompt theme!
Steam trains bring out ‘The Railway Children’ kid in me! (Film from my childhood!)
Same train, different view & depth of field!
