amid the hustle and bustle .........



 a busy bistro  somewhere in paris   ~

 
"you don't stop laughing when you grow old
you grow old when you stop laughing"
                                                               ~  George Bernard Shaw  ~


I don't know why I snapped this lonely face amid the crowd
Perhaps as a reminder that within the hustle and bustle of a vibrant city
there are ageing souls who have long ago stopped laughing

summer roses amid village bells ....





~ Spending time in the beautiful Adelaide Hills with friends is always a delight ~
coffee ...summer-roses ... pretty church-bells

summer two .......



 
a friend and I took a walk on the quiet-side
no high winds and clanging of the masts
just peace and quiet
 
a beautiful dolphin popped it's head up  
but too quick to capture

Summer Colours ........





the colours of an Australian summer .......
aqua and seafoam green and soft shell pink
oh! and sand ....  I love them all.

my world through rose tinted glasses ........



~  sunrise over  wynn vale dam   ~
 
I wish I could convey to you the sounds of this morning
 magpies warbling in the trees
 duck families squarking as they headed off across the lake
and the cry of plovers  - in search of tasty morsels
for their morning treat
 
 


I couldn't quite decide which pic to post
so you have them both.
Can you see the soft pink contrail above the trees?

my world in green ............



~   Adelaide Botanic Garden Pond   ~
 
Ducks - beautiful comical things
sleeping or curled
their heads beneath their wings
by water cool.

**********
It was a hot summer day when I walked by this pond
large water droplets had settled on floating leaves and
Mrs Mallard was quite content in her world of green

what would I miss most .......



 
What would I miss most if I had to leave forever
the city in which I live ??

**************
I would miss many things roses - wines - beach-walking 
 chattering with friends in my favourite coffee shop

But the thing I would miss most of all would be our wonderful morning light
especially along the never-ending coastline with miles of sandy beaches and hidden marinas
where yachts of  all descriptions can nestle-in, safely protected from the elements.

I like to go very early when the only sounds I hear are boat lines creaking
and ropes clanging against sun-tipped masts
and I can capture -  the breaking of a new-day.

If I had to leave my city ...... I would really miss that.

if they had to leave their city
