It’s often been said that us Canvey Island residents are on another planet, so I had a bit of a play with a fairly crappy image of the Shell Haven complex taken from the newly opened West Canvey Marsh. A little bit of a play in Photoshop with the distort filter created our very own Planet Canvey.
For Comparison, below is the original. A fairly uninspiring shot taken on an overcast and grey day.
Rusty paint tins, half used lay abandoned alongside a rotting brush whilst the decorator waits by the phone. Willing it to ring, as if thoughts alone can bring in some work to pay the bills and feed the family.
OK, I know it’s a weed, and follows the other recent weeds, but for some reason, this is just depressing……..
Of reminding you what’s important in life. Things like Love, and Sunshine. OK, it may not be a Rose but as I was Just about to hack this useless weed to death with a petrol mower (I wasn’t really, I was thinking about whether I could afford a gardener to do all the tedious crap for me) I was suddenly struck by the shape of the leaves……. Any excuse to get the camera out.
The dandelion has now completed it’s cycle and waits patiently for mother nature to finish the job. A bird, or gust of wind to spread new life throughout the manicured and tendered lawns of suburbia
Seems like yesterday, but nearly 8 weeks ago the puppies were born. It’s been amusing watching them grow. From not having the strength to lift their heads to running round like dogs possessed before snoozing away the day each one has turned out both healthy and loving. They’ll be leaving us within the next week or so and I for one will be sorry to see them go.
All of their new owners are lovely people, and I’m sure they’ll love having these bundles of joy around as much as we have over the recent weeks. This will probably be one of the last puppy related posts (though I do have a couple of hundred unpublished images in reserve if I need to reminisce later in the year).
