The Elements

Well, it's been a strange old week. I went to a funeral yesterday and it absolutely poured with rain. I was very moved by the people around me, and it got me thinking how amazing life is, and how important it is to enjoy the simple things in life. I can't begin to think what the Haitians are going through right now, it's never been far from my mind over the past few days.

These are two collages made with some new photos I took in the recent snow we've had. We visited our local country park last weekend as there are a couple of nice lakes there and lots of ducks that make that lovely quacky laughing sound. But while we were walking, the wardens decided that the frozen lakes were too tempting for people to skate on (and not safe to do so) so they blocked the entrances. We had to climb over a fence to escape which was rather exciting.

I'm also working on a uni project which I'll reveal next week. All I'm saying for now is that it has a musical theme...

In the meantime have a lovely weekend whatever you're up to.

The second one is gorgeous. Triangles and diagonals are so nice, I'm a bit obsessed at the minute!
