About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  1. It is so lovely to read of and, in your photos, to see your delight in being here in the UK! I love those birds on the post – brilliant capture.
    All the best to you both. 🙂

    The gardens are beautiful Don, but I love that shot of the birds. I’m sitting here, making up conversations between them, they just remind me of a stage group of some sort.

    You should buy one of those new apartments at One Hyde Park then Don; they’re only about £75m each:

    They, birds of a feather, look a little indifferent and detached, reminiscent of commuters in the Tube from a few posts back.

    I have been in the north here, so Hyde Park of there seems just as soothing for what ills one. Hyde Park, though, a civilized nature and evolved. Nice to get out of the walls from time to time, is it not.

      I must say Calvin that as I was taking the shot that is exactly what I felt, their detachment from one another. I’ve often seen and felt it in nature. I warm to your words, civilized and evolved.

    You captured the diversity (at least with the birds!) and nature of Hyde Park Don. Its wonderful to have this common space in the middle of London.

  14. So this is Hyde Park – I love it, too! How fortunate for you to be near this beauty…

    What is not to like, it is a wonderful place – great shots Don! Back in the 1970’s when I was in London, I got a shot of this guy shouting/preaching on top of a “soapbox” crying out for the world to listen to him, he was quite the character – I remembered this when I opened your post.
