It’s been a messy week. I have been working on too many things at once; with each project producing more and more sub-projects and tasks, and my “to-do” list begininng to resemble a Russian novel — with a cast of thousands.
I had intended to respond to Sally’s phoneography challenge with some street photography, but I didn’t manage to get out on the street. The mall and the supermarket would have done, but my phone’s battery died after a few fun shots in the produce department.
So, no street photography. Instead some very symbolic shots of endlessly repeating vegetables and fruit generated with my new “fun” app fractalPhoto.
Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally hosts a weekly phoneography and non SLR digital devices photo challenge. You can join in here.
Yesterday was the first in a long time I’ve given myself permission to go for a walk instead of starting work straight away. Not a particularly long walk – and I did take my camera – but enough to feel invigorated (probably by the cold) and humming with plans and ideas.
The trees were full of spiderwebs, hung with tiny beads of moisture and the morning light produced unexpected colours as a backdrop.
Truly a random moment of delight.
There are few things more endearing than beloved family pets.
Except perhaps watching children interact with said pets.
The boy-child has grown up with two cats in his life. We got them the year we returned to NZ and they are now 14. At the time, we didn’t know he has a cat allergy. It didn’t take too long to find out though, so it hasn’t really been a close relationship between the boy and his pets, although I think he loves them dearly.
Despite being brother and sister, the cats aren’t at all alike. The grey and white male has always been much larger (probably because he lives to eat) yet more timid — while his smaller sister is always keen to find a warm lap to snuggle in.
