I love strolling along an aul harbour but hate the smell, in “any minute now I’m gonna hurl” kinda way.
Fabulous pics! Hoping you'll be so in the habit of posting your pics that in November you'll continue!Love yesterday's, too. So incredible to think of how far you are from where I live. I love having a glimpse into your life. Thank you!!
actually didnt know fishing was big in SA.its great this feature, I am getting a good hang about life in SA..otherwise it was always about diamond s and SA.
These are good. I especially like the ones with the puzzle looking pieces in them, and especially the one with the circle shape.I can't help but see the rope tie thing, as a small child reaching out to be carried, or as a woman. Both images lend to me, a fondness for the photo.Thanks for the finger crossing for me, I need it!
This makes me miss the summer holidays I've spent at the Norfolk Broads. When I was younger we hired a cruiser a few years running and stayed on the boat for the week, and for the last couple of years when we've gone back there we've had a holiday cottage on the edge of the river with our own day boat to take out when we please.You're capturing little moments like this each day in October with your photos, while I do the same with my haiku!
Ah Nonny, no fear, m'dear, not the faintest whiff of aging fish here! ;-)Thanks, Reya! I think I might well continue do some photography into November and beyond, I'm really enjoying it - not that this was ever intended to be a photoblog! :-)Fishing is pretty big in SA, Rambler - with water around most of the country - as in India - I guess it kinda stands to reason :-)
Glad you liked them, Taffiny. I think it's brilliant that you can see concepts and ideas within the images - that's what makes doing this extra fun!Fingers will stay crossed for you!You know, Soph, I keep thinking I should write some haiku to go with the photos - but perhaps it's better I stick to the photos and you do the haiku! :-) Perhaps we can do a joint effort! ;-)
I love the pictures that yout ook, they are very pretty...Trying to find martial arts supplies? Here are two great places to get them www.taekwondosupplies.com and www.blackbeltshop.com.
Awesome abstract photography!How meaningful when one really ponders on them.Where do you get such ideas? :)
Great pics. Loved the boat one. I guess I'm simple like that.
Your photography is excellent. I love looking at them. Very arty! :-)
LOVE it!!! Such great pics, and the glove at the end is perfect.There is so much in each one; you are brilliant with composition!Let me know when you start teaching classes, okay?;o)Scarlett & Viaggiatore
I really like the black and white shots. And that glove at the end... I'm thinking creepy, must be cos we're near to halloween!
Great shots as usual. Black and white is a lovely medium. I feel sorry for the loan glove, like I do when I see a shoe hanging from telegraph wires or a discarded toy at the side of the road. Good stuff.
Great photos! I hope you are enjoying spending time with your aunt.if you find a spare moment, would you mind stopping by my blog...I'm looking for help with a project.
Beautiful pictures! It's nice what you can do with black and white. I especially like black and white pictures of sailing ships.Lorelei of Cape Town... that sounds very nice... :-)
These are exquisite. Very nice. I'm so glad you're so Phoctober-y.
My ISP is playing silly buggers so apologies for the delay in replying to comments - it's also making visiting more than a trifle difficult. And I will also confess to being more than a trifle worn out by "travels with my aunt".
Thanks, Becky.Um, not sure where I get the ideas, Sameera, like all my ideas they just seem to arrive :-)Thanks, StrugglingWriter! I think my favourite is the one of the thingamywhatsit that you tie the boat's rope around to secure it to the wharf.
Thanks, Suzan, that's very kind of you! :-)Aw, Scarlett - you're such a sweetie! Thanks so much!Yeah, I also thought the glove was a bit creepy, V!
Thanks, dear Baino - there's something evocative about a single item lying discarded on a road or similar, isn't there.Thanks, Silver - but let's not talk about travels with my aunt, okay ;-) I'll stop by your blog as soon as I can :-)
Thanks, my dear Vesper - so glad you liked the shots. Mind you, I'm not sure I'd want to name a boat Lorelei - she was one of the Rhine maidens who lured sailors to their death, much like the Greek sirens... *shiver*;-)Thanks, MoonT! And thanks too for introducing phoctober, I've been having sooo much fun! :-)
i liked the little seated "metal man" ..:)
"He" was my favourite too, Alaleh! :-)
Wow! Fantastic shots, Vanilla. I love the boat the the rusty tie down thing, which I can't seem to remember the name of at the moment. :) The tracks are awesome too! :)
Thanks, JD! You're a sweetie - but I've already told you that! :-)
We call them 'bollards', Jefferson - they look kind of huggy.
Funny how the simplest of objects can speak volumes when captured the right way. Nice. :-)
Good woman, Minx, bollards are what they are.Thanks, Shameless, beauty, I find, rests mostly in simplicity :-)
catching up on my cyberbuds (after a drought!) enjoyed this series (well all of your phoctober pics) the dock tie evokes 'fertility image' for some reason to me which is funny since I think some one else might have compared it to a 'seated metal man' weird to be out of the blogosphere for so long...but it's been a good week. chim chim cher-oo
these are gorgeous shots, Vanilla. I love seeing 'industrial' materials, gears, bollards, chains etc.... singled out and photo'd. It reminds me of the incredible beauty all around me in just ordinary everyday objects.What a gift you have: a writer's creative mind and an eye for composition .... do you paint as well? I can see you being a painter ...
How interesting you should notice the "bollard" ie the dock tie, as evoking fertility, Kimy - amazing what each of us see in different things. I can see why though it would evoke that image now that you mention seeing it like that. To me it had looked sort of like a teddy bear - which brings with it a different symbolism :-) Glad to have you back in cyberspace, you've been missed!
Thanks, Red - you're right about the beauty all around us - I drove past a huge electrical grid installation yesterday and thought, if it wasn't illegal, I would so love to photography the poles, pylons and lines - they're exquisite in their own right.And yes, I do paint as well - not much and mostly abstract. And thank you again, kind Red. xxx
I really enjoyed all of these photos--the glove left on the ground seems like a story waiting to be told.
You know, that's exactly what I thought, Matthew - here lies a story :-)
