Beautiful - love the texture of the grass. I thought you avoided people in your photographs.

Hello Wolynski.

You are right. I do avoid taking photos of people; in part because I'm not very good at it but more because I don't like to intrude on people without their permission - and they tend to be out of place in the kind of pictures I take anyway (which are generally very precisely focused in choice of subject matter).

So . . . I hummed and ha-ed a little over this picture and decided to use it. This little group of figures seems part of the landscape and none of them are recognisable as individuals. (And I try not to be too confined by my own rules either!)

Feeling: endless...
you could walk and walk,
until you're gone, vanished...

Sorry not been about much recently, having a break from my blog too until last week.

Liked the title ... drew me in as I thought it would be a balancing act in a butchers! Seriously, the shot into the light really evokes an atmosphere and the line of the light is like a fracture on the land.

Hello Blogitse.

It does have that atmosphere, doesn't it?

And at the same time . . . the walkers are walking into it in such a companionable way.

Hello Gordon.

Hope you feel refreshed after the break.

I saw, the other day, that you had posted . . . but, having read, had nothing to say so . . . er . . . didn't.

Odd, isn't it, that this stretch of land is called 'The Ham'? I don't know how it got its name.

Hi Lucy,
One of the things I like about your photos, is that you aren't afraid to take them "into" the sunlight. I do it quite a bit myself

Hello Pat.

It's the result of having read no books on photography!
