Life through the Lens (27 June 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

Believe it or not, this is just a couple miles from where I live. I couldn’t resist those poppies, so when I got home after glimpsing them, I had to turn straight back around and go back, armed with my camera.

It’s funny, I don’t remember seeing that particular field full of poppies, either before or since that year.


  1. I love this view! Quite reminiscent of the calendars I used to cutout for my slam books and journals 🙂 You’re so lucky to be near such a wondrous place!

    • ty. I was a keen photographer in my day. Did I read that you are in NL? That was another of my favourite haunts. Always loved going up to Alkmaar, around there. In fact I should dig one out to show on here.

        • Don’t you think this sign is really angry?This was in a place called Camkperduin. There was also a magnificent bronze there of the StrandWonderer. (I think. I never mastered Dutch. I’m afraid.)

          You have the worderful gift of empathy, btw. How many other people your age have even a clue?

          • Thank you for sharing! It is indeed an angry sign, ‘levensgevaarlijke’ means life-threatening danger. Aw, thank you so much for calling me empathic. I actually felt like I never really fit in at school because my maturity level is slightly above my classmates. Instead, I get on much more with adults and teachers.

            • We are so lucky, in a way (I had a stroke, I get by with my foot but not my hand). We have seen what the world is like, many years before most people do.
              I use that time advantage to be very political. I have experienced how society discardeds disabled people and I will do what I can to fight for better.
              I think empathy in our position is pretty-much automatic, I’d be very surprised if you weren’t.
