Couples, Clumps And Clouds


We were away for the weekend. On Saturday we went to a wedding celebration which was combined with a 40th wedding anniversary party. I took the wedding photographs 40 years ago and I took them again this time. When Guy and Anastasia celebrate their 40th anniversary I hope I will be invited once again to take the photographs. I shall do my best to stick around on this mortal coil just in case.

On Sunday we went for a lovely walk in the Vale of the White Horse. We climbed Wittenham Clumps and walked around the site of the ancient hill fort. The trees tried to scrape rain from the laden clouds, but couldn't quite manage it. And now it is back to rain-soaked Yorkshire where the mill chimneys have none of the same problems.

  1. The Vale of the White Horse sounds petty magical. I really like the photo. I'm a sucker for paths through the grass and roads with grass in the middle. And wildflowers, too. What a great view.

  3. I hope you're around for the 40th anniversary photos, as well. Wonder what cameras will be like in 2052? I certainly didn't foresee digital SLRs back in 1972. I was perfectly happy with my Mamiya-Secor 500TL, although I did lament not having enough money for all the film and processing I wanted.

  4. What a lovely spot. I like to think that you will be taking those photos again in 40 years time.

  5. Are you sure you didn't photograph the very source of all the clouds? It looks like that clump of trees might be hiding some secret contraption from which all the vapour is puthering...
