Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

I walk under this underpass regularly, and recently it seems to have become someone’s temporary home – how sad to be in such a desperate situation that you have no option but to resort to sleeping on the streets. Hopefully this will prove to be a transient rather than a permanant situation for the poor unfortuate person concerned…

Sometimes its fun to mix things up a bit photographically, but I really love the natural order inherent in the distinct layers of a landscape – a clear strip of foreground, a generally more interesting strip of middle-ground, and an undulating strip of background topped off with a beautiful blue sky, all together creating a harmonious blend that never fails to delight the eyeย  โค

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Golden-Hinde-II

It can be quite a surprise to see a full-size replica of the famous English Galleon the Golden Hinde, sitting proudly in dry-dock by the River Thames near to London Bridge. The original wooden-built sailing ship was launched in 1577 (during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I) and was used by Sir Francis Drake to circumnavigate the globe.

To my mind it’s a surprisingly small-sized vessel to have survived such an amazing journey across the world’s vast oceans! ๐Ÿ™‚
