Weekly Photo Challenge: Family
A walk around the countryside may gift you unexpected treasures. On a sunny afternoon – a rare occurrence in England of late – I came across two oldies so wrapped up in their own world that they didn’t even notice the camera-handling interloper.
Is the book they are reading a gift from their grandchildren, I wonder? I like to imagine that the old man decided to read out loud and, having reached a tight spot in the narrative, stopped to ask for his beloved’s opinion. Or perhaps their daughter is an author and she sent them her first published novel: “Young people these days… Look at what she writes here, dearest!”
The season-appropriate hats and scarfs made me smile. An ingenious addition.
I love it and, yes, truly ingenious. Thanks, Vic!
Thank you, Ann. They are so sweet, aren’t they?
And “ingenious” in my comment was supposed to apply to you, too (in case that wasn’t clear).
Aww, thank you 🙂
The addition of the hats and scarfs is great. It must be truly chilly there if even the sculptures need to bundle up.
Haha! Yes it is rather on the chilly side over here. I wonder if we’re in for a long winter. Did you here the news about solar activity being at its lowest point in since the 14th or 15th century? No sun spots and very little ultraviolets I understand. Apparently Nothern Europe may be entering a new mini-ice age.
I had noticed there is little solar flare activity. In December, I’d attended an online seminar on photographing the Northern Lights. It figures that as soon as I do, they go dark. We had a week of respite from the extreme cold, but it’s snowing as I write. Let’s hope your ice age is short lived. Stay warm!
Will do, thank you. It is interesting that you should mention the Northern Lights, as one of the side-effects of reduced solar activity may be their temporary (?) disappearance from the skyline.
I saw them once when I crossed the arctic circle in Finland – breathtaking. It was the best view from a hotel window I’d ever had.

This made me smile. Thanks for that 🙂
I grinned all the way home after taking this picture. Glad I could share it with you, Erik and thank you.
I would have had to do the same thing with the camera. Good catch 🙂

You give such good blog, Vic…don’t quite know what I did first thing in the morning (before reading your posts arriving from the UK in the night) 🙂
Your words are the best reward I can ask for. Thank you. I’m glad that you’re enjoying it and hope to keep it up in the future 🙂
Aren’t they just, KG? Thank you. 🙂
