Hong Kong Island

Sometimes we go through phases, where we do the same things over and over. And then, things change and you do something else. A good friend of mine from university repeatedly suggested that I should go and visit. And every so often, I woudl say something like, “I really should come and visit”. But IContinue reading “Hong Kong Island”

Pheasant, West Sussex

Walking in the rain isn’t much fun. More recently, there has been a fair amount of it on my daily walks and this morning, I almost left my camera on its hook (making one less thing to dry out afterwards). But I didn’t. And, as you can see, when I saw this bird as IContinue reading “Pheasant, West Sussex”

Morning Frost, West Sussex

Christmas isn’t the coldest time of the year in the UK. In December, we can usually relax because the coldest months for us are January and February, So, after a relativly wet Christmas, the weather has turned increasingly colder and finally we having really hard frosts – as you can see in these photographs. ThisContinue reading “Morning Frost, West Sussex”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

During October, we had some lovely weather in Shoreham, which made it feel like a gradual change from summer into autumn. At the time, the COVID number had slumped and people felt more comfortable being away from home. As you can see, the Sun shone and lots of people took the opportunity to take theirContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Morning Frost, West Sussex

Right now, like many people in the UK, I’m living in lockdown again! I think I’ve written it before, but one of the things I have appreciated this year, has been the opportunity to notice the passing seasons. I particularly remember the change from spring into early summer, and now, with the hard frost thisContinue reading “Morning Frost, West Sussex”

Dog on the Beach, West Sussex

After what has seemed like weeks of rain, yesterday, we had a few hours of sunshine, so I went to the beach. It was warm enough to sit on the pebbles and watch the waves for a couple of hours, so pretty mild for mid-December. In the photo, the sea looks much flatter than itContinue reading “Dog on the Beach, West Sussex”

Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach

I was going to write about life on the beach – but then I noticed the date – and decided that I would write about Thanksgiving instead. In the UK we tend to slowly take on things from the US – liablity lawyers, Adam Sandler – all the good stuff. But I do think weContinue reading “Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach”

Trees in Fog, West Sussex

I think I have walked around the park every day since the first lockdown. Normally, in the noise of work and rush, the seasons tend to pass outside the window, but because we have all been at home I have been able to notice the changes in the weather as the seasons pass. As youContinue reading “Trees in Fog, West Sussex”

The Causeway, Horsham

The Causeway is a street in the old town of Horsham. The Causeway runs from Carfax (which is the old centre of the town) to St Mary’s church. As I took this picture, a passerby stopped and commented that it was a view which hadn’t changed in hundreds of years. And he was probably right.Continue reading “The Causeway, Horsham”
