#Words and #PictureOfTheDay: 29/May/22

Sunshine and shade

The very essence of


Painting with light

Here on the banks of

The River Wear

As is flows to the

North Sea through

The city of


Was that a shock?

To see beauty in such a place?

Perhaps prejudice plays a part

In judgment.


From the end of May, I’ll be posting a picture just once a week. Books and writing have taken a back seat for too long. I started this daily series when Covid confined people to their homes, unable to enjoy nature. It’s time to return to my writing and a project my publisher is sponsoring. More of that in a few days or so. If you want to spread joy, respect, and responsibility for our wonderful planet, please share these posts on social media (the ‘share’ buttons below help), comment with your thoughts, and help sustain our environment for the future. Thank you. Earth is our only home.

More pictures appear in the Gallery.
And you can view over 2000 of my images for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room.
The small fee covers costs and helps me maintain and buy equipment and software quality digital photography demands. I dislike exclusivity and prefer everyone to be able to afford my work.

    1. Thanks, Lynette. This river (you can’t see the water in this pic, but it’s just below the trees), was once a very busy ship-building area, very industrialised. PM Margaret Thatcher effectively shut down the shipyards some years ago and the city was then left to try to recover. It’s good to see it has made such strides and is becoming a more attractive place to live again.

    1. Thanks, Noelle. Sunderland is a city in the northeast of England, not renowned for its beauty. But a lot of work has been done by the local council there, and it’s definitely recovering from an industrial past that had left scars.
