So, how to wrap up the ninth month of the year 2022?
September is the month when I started Some Photoblog, back in 2015. September marks the transition from summer to autumn. The first autumn leaves appear, that phenomenon that makes poets pick up their pens and photographers their camera. And painters their brush.
causing a marked change in someone or something
Queen Elizabeth saw Liz Truss becoming prime minister, said this is too much, and bowed out.
And I discovered mushrooms grow in my local park.
The blogger on the first day of the month is the same person as the blogger at the end of the month, but she has been through something… transformative. (Refer to my previous two posts.)
But she is still taking pictures with her smartphone in the park. Because that is what she does.
Hopefully 2022 has some good things in store for us. I expect to reach 500 posts on Some Photoblog, I’m guessing sometime in the spring. That is, if I don’t run out of ideas, last year I covered all of my favourite things.
Also am looking forward to the Death on the Nile film, gods know it’s been delayed enough.
I encountered these two cats on my walk in the park, the walk from my previous post.
I took several pictures of this cat, who looked like quite a young cat, perhaps still half a kitten. I first spotted her (I’m going to refer to this cat as “she/her”) at that tree in the back of this photo. She didn’t run when I walked closer to her, but instead focused on something, which I soon saw were two squirrels. She wanted to catch them, or one of them at least. However, both squirrels dealt with the predator easily by swiftly climbing up the trees. One squirrel even–and I swear to you, it did–taunted the cat by shaking its tail and letting out shrieking noises. In fact both squirrels made this noise, and it was the first time I’ve heard squirrels making any kind of noise. And I see squirrels all the time in Heaton Park.
This one ran away as soon as I started getting closer.
I’m just sneaking in this one, as it came rather unexpectedly. This section of my park always looks the best around the time of the day before the sun starts setting. I love the long shadows.
It is also touched with sadness, as it was not half an hour after I heard the news of Helen McCrory’s death. Like last year with Chadwick Boseman, devastating doesn’t express the feelings enough. What can one say in this situation, other than, Rest in power, Helen.
It’s no wonder people want to believe in afterlife.
Hello hi, it’s been a while. What can you photography-blog about these days?
It’s still got to be pictures from my local park, as that the only place I go to. That and Tesco supermarket.
Okay, the last one isn’t from the park but who cares.
I’ve not been outside my area for over 3 months. I don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without using public transport in my life. I kinda like setting this record for myself. I will continue working from home for now so it’ll only be getting longer. I’m used to this new order, I don’t miss the old life much. The only thing is, my photography suffers. I don’t remember when I last took up my camera.
This blog might just turn into a rambling blog. Which, as I said to someone on Twitter recently, is really the best kind. *shrug
