With school holidays drawing to a close, I decided to post a second photo of this lovely sculpture on Lake Okanagan’s shoreline in Penticton. (The first time I posted a picture of this sculpture was about five years ago.)
I remember well those seemingly endless summer breaks when all you had to do was play intensely and be sure to arrive home – during my childhood, at least – when the streetlights started to come on. I think this sculpture captures well the childhood sense of freedom that many of us were able to enjoy and is perhaps gone forever, replaced by caution and organisation.
These bright yellow chairs sitting in the sun remind me that in about four days, I will be starting my holidays and heading to my home in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. For the most part, it will be a staycation. Looking forward to it.
Stuart has changed the focus of his photo posts from the Forest of Dean and ocean pictures of the past 15 months or so to a wider variety of shots and scenes from his collection. Stuart’s project was to share landscape photos for those who, in particular, have been on semi-permanent shutdown because of covid.
But all good things must come to end. With many of us starting to turn the corner on this wretched virus, Stuart is moving on as well.
Thank you, Stuart, for continuing to share your lovely forest and ocean photos with us over these many months that covid has kept us more inside than outside. For me, your posts have been a lovely bright spot in a sometimes very difficult time. 🌸
I won’t be re-blogging Stuart’s photos quite as often, but definitely will continue! Please visit Stuart’s site for a browse through his gorgeous photography.
