From the Covid Chronicles

God bless everyone at this time and I hope you are all doing well and making the best of it with your families. We had a few health issues this year and it’s been an all round stressful time. I’m less active on social media -But still photographing – and, there is a light coming!!

( I got a recognition award for this one)


We’ll get together soon Dad!

I know you’re tired but come, this is the way – Rumi


Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

there’s a crack, a crack in everything

that’s how the light gets in


I wish all the best for our neighbours in America this next while

    Hi, welcome back. I wondered where you had got to.
    These photos are truly autumnal, a shade off sepia. I’m using my Samsung right now so must go to the Laptop for a larger view.

    All your lovely images are award winners in my opinion. This has been a very tough year in many ways. Health concerns and politics are things that cause so much stress. I hope for a brighter future for us all and for this planet. So good to see your post.
