Signs are everywhere. Some are easily seen, some are subtle: such are the signs of life. Subtle indicators of life, left for another to see..


Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-second story…

On seeing this week’s photo challenge I thought of time spent driving through the French Alps with my son, Rob. After pulling over to take a few shots of the scenery, a little dog appeared. He didn’t bark, he didn’t protest our presence: he simply watched and waited.

On a train in Geneva…

life, photography

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

What lies beyond your own space? Different faces, places, sights and sounds. This weeks Photo Challenge was apt for me as I have been travelling of late, gone beyond my own space and whilst there found beautiful faces, spaces, sights and sounds that lay far beyond my own.
Here are a few…

what lies beyond his infectious smile...?
what lies beyond his infectious smile…?
Beyond the tunnel, what is their destination?
Beyond the beach?
What lies beyond this hug,,, a happy future perhaps?
Beyond his thoughts…?
Beyond her pensive stare… A wish, contentment?


Pangkor Island, Malaysia

I’ve been away.

Away exploring another land, another culture, another way of life. It was beautiful, exciting and challenging and shared with a dear friend. Yet I missed something I had never missed before.

I realised I needn’t look further afield to find beautiful, exciting and challenging. I had that.

And that is where I am now and I find myself smiling. For I am where I need to be. And it was here all along.
