The light was beautiful this afternoon as I stepped out of the house to seek inspiration by the sea. Some bird watchers had beaten me to it - no doubt in search of the Lesser-Spotted Crotch-Tailed Herring-Gull. Or something.
I decided to take these shots in my “Car's eye view” series, so I just pulled my car into the car park at church point and shot from out of the sun roof. I'm pleased with the results, and wonder if these may even be good enough to go into the community theme in the arts forum. It seems that bird-watching, much to my surprise, is part of the scene here in this endlessly intriguing town.
As for me, I am facing decisions that may cause me to change things about me that I have kept locked away inside for years. That's enough to make anyone look wistfully at the sea, or maybe have a sleepless night or two.
How much have you really changed recently? Do you find change scary? I know I do. So much so that I usually prefer it to be forced upon me, rather than to welcome it. I tend to think that many of us pay lip service to positive change, always intending to do the right thing, but rarely actually achieving much.
On the other hand, I change in other ways without even trying. So, are we what we are, should we just be blown along by the changes of life - or can we actually choose to change and can that change be permanent?
Some tiny questions for you and me to consider today. Have a nice one.
Such beautiful light. NBTS seems to attract such wonders.
It's a new concept in photography, and you saw it here first.
Only pictures taken from the seat of a car qualify.
This makes it a truly inclusive sport. If you can drive, you can play. Not need to even get you feet wet, assuming you have feet.
So I will be featuring Car's eye pictures from now on. Here are two to start us off.
The first was taken today in the mist. A grey picture for a grey day. The second was taken last night, with my car parked up close to the wall of St. Bartholomew's Church in NBTS. The mist and fog really does make everything look different.
