The new old walks



Whenever I set off for a familiar walk


I invariably wonder aloud whether


I really want to carry my camera


because I can picture it so well


and nothing will have changed much.


I am always wrong.

I left the camera behind when I went for a short walk by the sea.
There was a beached ray on its back, smiling up from the sand
just like a Disney character.

  1. I know the feeling well. Even if I take my big camera I always regret leaving a particular lens behind. At least a phone camera doesn't weight one down too much.

  4. First rule of blogging - never leave home without a camera. Sadly, yesterday when visiting Highgrove, no cameras allowed - my trigger-finger was itching all day.

    1. I can well imagine. Was the meadow looking marvellous? I've never been but I saw a programme about Miriam Rothschild advising the Prince over his meadow.

    2. Unfortunately the meadow had 'gone over' - the tour guide said it was due to be mown.
