Till the clouds roll by.
It’s April, and the air still hurts my face. But I didn’t let that stop me from a pleasant walk on Burlington Beach. (Yes, it’s true. I – detester of most winter things – have actually become a fan of winter beach walks. What next? Winged pigs?)
When I arrived, the sun was glinting warmly on the water, and by the time I left, the clouds had overtaken the sky, leaving a dull, flat light. I liked this shot – converted to black and white for some extra drama – because the clouds seem to be pulled in by the barge in the distance. Plus… doesn’t that top-most cloud look like a bird in flight?!
I’ll share a couple more pictures from my chilly beach wanderings in the coming days. Hey – word on the street is that the temperature might rise to double digits at the end of the week (!!!). My face – pale, cracked and frozen – cannot wait.
My apologies: I’ve been neglectful of this space, haven’t I? Fortunately, my camera has been busy – I’ve begun another personal project (maybe more on that later) – and while I’ve kept on top of following my favourite WordPress blogs, I have missed posting here regularly.
But today deserves some attention because it’s the Mr.’s birthday. Here’s a guy who’s willing to stand on potentially dangerous ledges and outcrops of wet rock so that I can make photos. To be clear: it’s HIS idea to stand on dangerous ledges and outcrops of wet rock. If it were up to me, he’d be standing at a reasonable, safe distance from the water at all times. Maybe wearing a life jacket, just in case. But those pictures would surely put you to sleep.
Anyhow, anxiety and slippery rocks aside, my mightiest birthday wishes go out to my partner of nearly twenty years. He’s kind, generous, smart, funny, and patient. Also, easy on the eyes. I don’t know how I was lucky enough to nab him.
Honey, I celebrate you.
And the fact that you didn’t fall into the lake.
