Project 365: The Start

A photo a day, for a year…? I’m giving it a go!

365-15-01-01January 1  This was on my window sill. It just seemed symbolically appropriate for the new year. Especially the buds; reminiscent of hope.


January 2  I never tire of England’s skies. Caught at the end of the day, I was intrigued by the combination of nature with man’s activity in this view.

365-15-01-033 January  Saturday was (unusually, for me) a working day. The street where I was working is made of of old but soundly-built houses; seeing this, I thought of the increasing challenge of the times in which me live: the management and disposal of waste. When new, this street would have have been devoid of cars and telephone lines; satellite dishes would have been a hundred years or so away! And each house would have been equipped with one small (by current standards) dustbin. Mainly for, well… dust. Quite a thought! And not, in any sense, a beautiful picture. An issue worthy of genuine effort.

    Love the flower pic! Oh I think about the rubbish a lot too – mainly when they forget to collect ours, now that is a pain…!! At least things will calm down again post-Christmas, but you’re right. How did all the packaging and stuff get this out of hand?

    Love, love, love these photos Phil! The black background to the flowers is wonderful, but I do love the rubbish piled up. It’s try that in times gone by there wouldn’t have been any waste, everything would have been reused and mended.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365 and good luck for the year ahead; there is a new linky live now.
