Boys in Blue, Bangkok

I haven’t posted in a while, so I thought I would write about a couple of old photos. One of the magical things about being young, is how there always seems to be time to “fit things in”. At the time, I was working in Ho Chi Minh City, but I found that if IContinue reading “Boys in Blue, Bangkok”

At ZSL London Zoo, London

As I’m writing this, in the UK we have just entered our third official lockdown, so I thought I would write about a visit I made to ZSL London Zoo early last year, just before our first lockdown. ZSL London Zoo is located on the edge of Regent’s Park, which while in central London, isn’tContinue reading “At ZSL London Zoo, London”

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”

Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex

My first post of the second lockdown! I’m back to walking in the park either early in the morning, or late at night, when sensible people are snug in bed. I missed the full moon (which was smothered by thick cloud anyway), but I’m still pleased with the amount you can see. In reality, itContinue reading “Trees in Moonlight, 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”

Morning Walk, Shoreham Beach

How do you feel about mornings? When I was a student, there were mornings when I didn’t get up until almost lunchtime and being particularly self-aware, I didn’t think this was particularly strange. Then I joined the working world and waking at 6 o’clock for a commute to work. Then in later years, rising atContinue reading “Morning Walk, Shoreham Beach”
