Just A Glimpse . . .

.
.
.
.After six hours on the road today returning to the real world, after a few glorious weeks in the land that time forgot (as well as the bar that time forgot in previous two posts here) I'm not in much shape to pick up the blog at the usual full speed ahead setting, but just to give you a little tiny glimpse of things to come, to start getting warmed up for a return to blogland, to whet your appetites as it were, I thought I'd share this slice of life from out in Britanny, about 1/250th of a second's worth from a sunny afternoon by the water the other day, climbing around in the rocks, searching for lost treasures.

As the above image contains just a hint of a reflection in it, that reminded me that I might still have time, barely, to slip this in to James' Weekend Reflections page, a fine corner of the blogging universe where people from all over the planet have been contributing their reflections every weekend for quite some time now. Bravo to James for his hard work and perseverance for keeping so many balls in the air all at once, to use a juggling metaphor. These next two may qualify more squarely as Weekend Reflections material, or more spherically as the case may be. If you gaze into the depths of the crystal ball here, perhaps you can see into the future, and if not into the future, into the pasture ?

Wonderful shots, Owen. Your perspective is always so unique.

Oh that first shot is breathtaking!

Great balls of fire! I went to the fortune teller just to see what I could see and she told me that a glOwen toad would be sailing out to sea. Sailing off in a small red boat, his camera at the ready, fortune smiling down on him as he sailed smooth and steady. Six hours at helm might overwhelm, but our Brother Toad was ready; though, ready or not, it must be done, as summer ends so must the fun.

Welcome back to the lullaby of Blogland, BrOwen. Glad to see that you had a real ball on your holiday by the sea.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Love Brittany and love that picture of the lonely boat! Welcome back Owen! Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

James said...

I love those reflections and I wish that I would have taken the photo of the boat because it's excellent! :)

Thanks for your very nice comment. I'm going some place new this year so I won't be able to visit Paris. Thankfully I have lots of pictures and great memories.

Great depth of field and beautiful composition on the boat beyond the rocks, and the reflections in that ball are fab! I especially like the first one where you don't know that the image is an enlargement of the ball and I can see the cool French architecture, the bright blue summer by the sea sky, and of course, the man with the cam!

Love the wee boat, looks a bit Narnian...returning from some fabulous adventure n'est pas?

Owen said...

Bonjour à toutes et à tous...

Merci pour ces petits mots qui rechauffent le coeur...

Hello one and all, many thanks for your heartwarming words; the adventures by the sea and exploring the magic of crystal balls could have gone on forever, but reality called me back to the world where a paycheck is a necessity...

Best to all, et à bientôt...
