More Fountains

Hi Everyone. Apologies for being off the radar for a while, I have been overcoming a health problem and taking some wordpress tutorials as well (check out @wptrain on twitter), as I was still feeling pretty bewildered when trying to finalise some of my posts and add tags etc. Not sure I’m any better at it now but here goes! (And by the way apologies for all those late comment approvals – they had gone into the spam folder and I was not sure how to deal with them until recently).

Well, in June I took a short trip to Nice with my husband and got some really lovely photos of a couple of the spectacular fountains there. The day after our return, I then went to Ballycastle on the North Antrim coast with my mum and daughters, took more lovely photos, then promptly dropped my iphone in the water! It burned itself out before my very eyes and I lost all my photographs – which felt like more of a tragedy than losing the phone itself. So I have compensated here by using images I found through google. They are wonderful images, they look so organic and alive, I’m sure you’ll agree. Tumbling water really does have its own special magic.

The first frame just embodies so much energy and movement you can nearly feel as if you are there. The second picture looks like a dandelion clock, I think. How the little sections work together to create a living sculpture in water is mesmerising. Both pictures are from a website called Amazing Fountains of the World http://eamazings.com/index.php/eamazings/amazing-fountains-of-the-world-17022010.html Worth a look 🙂

    Oh thanks so much Viv for this lovely encouraging comment. I’m slowly but surely getting to grips with the tech, still skating around a bit on direction I think but it’s such a good activity in itself that I’m happy to keep feeling my way for now. Thanks again 🙂

      I had the fun of talking my husband through starting his own blog, which was…interesting.
      It’s sometimes slow, and it can be very frustrating when you put a lot of thought and effort into writing posts, and then feel they’ve fallen into an abyss of the internet. But take it gently, and trust the process.

    I love the picture of the fountain; it looks like a dandelion clock ready to blow away. I have a thing about dandelions after the story in Anthony de Mello’s The Song of the Bird, which inspired my essay Dandelions and Bad Hair days, that was included in a book of the same name to raise awareness and funds for mental health charities.
    Starting blogging is a very exciting time, and it’s often hard to see where you’re going but I think you’re doing great so far. It took me the first year to start to understand both the tech stuff and my rough direction.
