Today’s Pictures: 07 Mar 21

Leaving a small ancient quarry in the forest.

‘Walking shares with making and working that crucial element of engagement of the body and the mind with the world, of knowing the world through the body and the body through the world.’    Rebecca Solnit

The daily shots from the local forest will continue for the moment, and I’ll include other photographs from my collection to provide a wider view of the world and its wonders.

Small hulks of abandoned boats at Orford Ness in Suffolk.

    1. The strip of land on the horizon, Lynette, is a small island and it was used for oyster fisheries at one time. My guess is these boats were part of that operation. I think silt from the river finally made it uneconomical to continue farming the oysters, so the boats were just left to rot.

  2. What is it about an abandoned hull of a boat. I am drawn to that photograph my friend. The forest is smiling today. I love it. Thank you Stuart for continuing to share your lovely work with us. Love to you and Valerie. Sending her lilies of the valley with gardenias so sweet. Love ❤️ Joni

    1. Abandoned wooden hulks, Joni? I think it’s something to do with our ancestral memories of travel over water; there’s also something intrinsically sad about a craft deserted after a lifetime of service, I think.
      Yes, the smiling forest: no surprise you saw that metaphor!
