Title • light bends water

The thing I like about photographs such as this one, although this is clearly true of every photograph, is that this is a moment that will never return. The tree will grow, the small waves will never be positioned exactly as they are now, and the light breeze will bend this tree into a slightly different pattern. But as I said, this is true of all photographs, it just seems more salient to me with this sort of shot.

On another matter: this week and next week we're attempting to fit a kitchen, and in a house that was built in 1875 this is no easy task: none of the walls are square, the electrics have been bodged over the decades, and the plumbing is something of a mystery. All of which is my excuse for either posting relatively crap shots over the next week or so, or none at all. I suspect that I'll put something up, but am not quite sure what at the moment.

And finally, on a much more positive note: I'm really pleased to be able to say that chromasia won the 'Best European / British / Irish Photoblog' category of the Photobloggies, 2005 Awards. So many, many thanks to everyone who voted: it's much appreciated. Oh, and I win a LensBaby which I'm really looking forward to playing with :-)
