That rain we were wishing away last week has temporarily evaporated. In its place, mid-summer temperatures and similarly high humidity. And just when I was getting used to putting on warmer clothes.
Not that I'm complaining. Of course.
Monday is not a teaching day but a major preparation day for the forthcoming three 9.00am start classes and a few others. This week too, I have a major research presentation to make in front of colleagues, the first one I've had to do here.
So there is not much time to look up from the desk, although one should. And mostly, each time I did, it was the movement on the water that caught my eye...
|...to rippling effect|
|It seemed to be floating the haze at times|
|Water taxi jr|
|Racing to the end|
|To a sudden calm and stillness|
I sometimes imagine, in a far off place and time, I might put down the camera and pick up some paint brushes to try and paint what I see in these almost abstract, almost subject-free images. To paint the stillness. To capture the colour...
But that time is far far away. For now, it will have to be the click of the shutter that captures my imagination.
