Dominance softened

when pockets of difference

break monotony

At first glance this picture appears to show only mussels, but take a longer closer look. There are at least six different species in the picture and they break up the regular pattern and dominance of the mussels to create a less threatening and stark ecology. A metaphor perhaps?

Thursday doors – 28 November 2019

Doors 89 – Fowey, Cornwall (part 5)

Looking back to September when the weather was just lovely and I managed to capture a few more doors from the beautiful cornish village (town) of Fowey. Fewer words this week – enjoy the doors.

Thursday doors – 10 October 2019

Doors 85 – Fowey, Cornwall (part4)

(Originally published by mistake on Wednesday 9 October… d’oh!)

Wow! A Thursday doors on a Wednesday… how on earth did I manage that? Obviously I am not firing on all cylinders yet.

This week I am continuing with some Cornish doors from a trip to Fowey back in September and in doing so clinging on to what was the last of the decent late Summer weather – now it just rains… every day.

So here they are – dreaming of holidays by the sea.

Still more doors to come from Fowey, but you’ll have to wait for them. In the meantime enjoy what’s left of the week and have a lovely weekend.
