Project 52 : 2020

January

Week No. 3 : Out of focus

"Touched by frost"

 

Nature is healing. Simply stepping into the outside world for a couple of deep breaths can calm any anxious feelings and give you space to think more clearly. Just take a moment to stop and appreciate everything around you and tune into the natural landscape - birds in conversation, wind in the trees, different colours. Even on a grey day they are worth taking time to marvel at.

Week No. 2 : Small

"Daisy"

Even small things brighten up a dark world.

Week No. 1 : Outside

"Catkins"

 

I found this prompt challenging as I am so used to make my photos in focus but it was fun playing with settings to get the bokeh effect I liked! I am always delighted to see frosty grass early morning as it is like the ground has been touched by magic. The icy spikes of grass twinkle in the sunlight but as it warms the ground, it dissapears as fast as it appeared.

Week No. 4 : Window/Door

"Window on the past"

Window 3

 

"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains."

 

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day (27th January) when we remember the day Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated. These words of Anne Frank's show why we should always remember those who died. Her diary opens a window on the past so we can remember and continue to pass on the message of peace and reconcilliation.
