Like the waters

I HEARD the old, old men say,
‘Everything alters,
And one by one we drop away.’
They had hands like claws, and their knees
Were twisted like the old thorn-trees
By the waters.
I heard the old, old men say,
‘All that’s beautiful drifts away
Like the waters.’

The Old Men Admiring Themselves In The Water ~ William Butler Yeats

The day was overcast and I dug out my old Ricoh CX3 from the drawer. This knocked-about knock-around point-and-shoot tends to lag a little now after the press of the switch and with less than bright light, gives grainy slightly blurry images. Nevertheless on seeing these ripples in the duck pond, I was mesmerised and the camera seems to have come up with some painterly impressions. Things are not always seen best with full clarity!

  1. Oooh the Ricoh did that all by itself? I thought you’d run these through one of those arty apps.


  2. I agree with you about things not always seen best with full clarity, but will add that there is beautiful clarity of another sort in these images.


let your feedback be food for thought....
