6/366 A River Runs Through It #Project366

All of the children back at school left some serious ‘ME’ time for 6/366 of my daily challenge that is #Project366. I took my self off to Birkacre (Yarrow Valley Country Park for the more recent inhabitants), a place of my upbringing, my childhood playground, where in the valley of my roots, a river runs through and carves its way, as water always does to the destination that ends it’s purpose – almost like life itself!

The point in which I took this photograph has seen me cross this bridge perhaps thousands of times and it’s image is imprinted in my mind in a way that if I was ever shown this image, I would know exactly where it was. I remember as a child seeing paintings of Birkacre on the walls of elderly ladies, now long passed and yet the images of their youth, were clear to me as the images of mine. Some of these paintings were even of viewpoints I would not have stood at, but even the slightest glimpse of something familiar was apparent to me from a very young age and I would say “That is Birkacre …. I know it is” and await the confirmation of my statement.

The point where this image was taken is where, as a photography student in my early twenties, I stood and took this same shot in black and white and later developed, enlarged and printed this image for my coursework – I wish I had this image to show you now, but it is lost amongst many photographs of which I have so many.

And so, photograph 5/366 is so poignantly entitled ….

All of whom are bright, fun-loving, creative and musical and make me proud and despite his disability (CP) my step-son and family face challenges with a smile and the will to succeed.

I will mostly post recipes and photos of food, family and travel. I love to review products that my family and me would use - I kinda consider it my 'duty' to let you all know if something is as good as it says on the tin and a 'must buy' product, that all families should know about. Find these in HonieLikes. If you like what you see, please tell me - I work hard at these things :o)

  1. I like that, peaceful and contemplative.

  2. So tranquil, I really like the splash of orange in the middle of the photo from the leaves.
