Happiness is…

… finding a beach that makes you happy!


Paula over at Lost in Translation runs a weekly Black and White Sunday challenge. Sorry to hear she is feeling rather stressed and poorly this week. I wish her a speedy recovery and time to rest.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I could do with a (warm and sunny) beach today, Jude. Grey and murky here, light rain, flooded fields, and yet more mud. January is turning out to be a very depressing month, that’s for sure.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I suppose now we are used to colour images it is a challenge to see black and white ones differently; to focus on the things which colour tends to distract us from, such as the curves on this one.

      1. But not Paula! Definitely out of sorts this week, as she hasn’t made it here to say thanks. Working much too hard but feeling obligated to do so. What can you say? I’m afraid I just ruffle feathers 😦 Or is that the gamebird? 🙂

        1. You? Ruffle feathers? I doooon’t believe it! But I do know the ‘being put upon’ feeling. One reason I realised that teaching was not for me.

  2. Surprising how beaches actually look more remote in Black and White and it brings out the patterns of the waves. Nice interpretation of the theme Jude.
