The Birds

Down low over the water the Seagull soars

DSC_0045

A flap of his wings is enough.

DSC_0046

A wink of an eye as he passes me by

DSC_0048

While his friend takes a dip to cool off.

DSC_0019

The Night

DSC_0026

The night is such a joy, so peaceful, so dark.

DSC_0001

The stars in the sky, leave such a small mark.

DSC_0005

Make the shutter wait and this is what appears

DSC_0027

Beautiful colours before the dawn nears

DSC_0023

A passing airliner leaves a line across the sky

DSC_0028

Its lights like stars to the unblinking eye.

V.E.ry nice DAY out

A celebration. Seventy years of peace. Victory in Europe was a blessed release. DSC_0001 Here in the village where the Bronte’s once dwelt The war years are back so we know how it felt. DSC_0018 As it was then, so it is today. The girls liked a Yank… and so did they! DSC_0041 They danced in the streets, Glen Miller I think and when soldiers passed by, they gave them a… wink! DSC_0054 The Germans for certain, were not welcome then But now? Of course! It’s only pretend. DSC_0028 Spitfires were used to keep the Jerry at bay. Without them who knows what it would be like today! DSC_0039 Was it busy like this all those decades ago? I’m sure that it was but I’m too young to know. DSC_0056 What a great day, not a frown to be seen and so very colourful… if you like brown and green. DSC_0079 With plenty to drink, and so much to eat Come visit here next year, it will be such a treat! DSC_0075 Maybe I will see you there! (Haworth, England. May 2015) Click on pictures to enlarge.

The old and the new.

There is a house in Yorkshire, very old is it.

DSC_0036

1642 the year and is surely worth a visit

DSC_0040

Some of the house is ruined and some of it complete

DSC_0039

But if you live for history then it really can’t be beat.

DSC_0056

A medieval barn, no less, with timber no less aged

DSC_0070

It is easy to imagine it, as it was when it was needed.

DSC_0084

Through the grounds, a carefree stroll, ‘quackers’ if you don’t go,

DSC_0045

Walk through fields that Murgatroyd saw looking through his window.

DSC_0089

But that’s the old, so what’s the new? It’s springtime now, you know.

DSC_0117

Perhaps this little chap can trace his roots to nearly four centuries ago.

DSC_0111

Doubt it though!

Look back in time

DSC_0022

There’s a small market town in North Yorkshire,

DSC_0019

Past which the sands of time hurry by.

DSC_0018

Yet somehow they miss these quaint cobbled streets,

DSC_0020

Letting history remain where it lies.

DSC_0016

The boats on this spur to the castle,

DSC_0014

Carry people now, not stone,

DSC_0007

But the stones from which this town is built,

DSC_0002

Ensure its history will always be known.
