52/2013 Week 36


Do you ever set yourself a project and then find you’re continually chasing to catch-up? That’s the way it been with this years 52/2013 Challenge. It’s not that I’m failing to get the weekly photograph, more the time required to process the photograph, post it to Flickr and then write the blog post.

52/2013 Week 36

It doesn’t help if you don’t have access to the internet like I had the last week. I knew I was going on vacation, I knew there was no access, but I still missed not using it. Maybe I’ve come to rely on it too much? What about you. Do you feel lost if you can’t get on-line?

Anyway for this weeks challenge, I took this photograph of Tewkesbury Abbey from the opposite side of the river. Most visitors to the Abbey never see this. What I like about it is the bench and tree on the river bank provide some good foreground interest.

  1. This is so beautiful and looks like a painting. I really, really love the churches and cathedrals that you post. About the Internet. I can hardly get past not using the computer. I had cable TV disconnected and my TV is old so I dont get any channels unless I have cable. My blog, email and, reading news via Internet keeps me connected to “the world.” I will add a bit more. Becoming a blogger, for me, was one of the best things that I have done for myself. I get to see so much beauty via your posts and a few other photographers that I follow. And, I am entertained by several bloggers who are funny as well as excellent writers. And even though you have not asked for all that I am writing here, I have become friends with several bloggers and enjoy their friendship and support. I appreciate these individuals more than I could ever have imagined.

    • Well Yvonne, I’m always happy to receive comments and continue the conversation through the comment system on the blog.

      I started blogging as a way of showing my photographs but now it more about keeping in touch.

  2. I agree the bench and the tree provide a good foreground, but ones eye when looking at the picture is drawn immediately to the glowing sky just above the Abbey.

  3. This has an air of Constable about it – very fine shot indeed. Yes I get withdrawal symptoms if I am not connected. When we went to Antarctica we had very limited access to the internet on the boat. We didn’t miss Facebook etc but we did want to know how the kids and dog were, had they written off the car etc. Like Yvonne the connections become more important over time. I think many of us try to do too much online and I need to work out what my longer term plan is. Too many places to post – PBase, Flickr, G+, blog – I rarely post images to FB now. Maybe mandatory rationing of online access would be good.

    • I’ve started looking at where I post now. I still use FB to keep in touch with friends but I’m starting to wean myself away from all the groups. I’m looking at G+ right now. Do I need it? Probably not. I think it has to be Flickr and my blog and that’s it. I’ve got accounts on various sites all over the Internet. I never use them and some of them I probably can’t remember the login details for, so I really should start cleaning up.
