Sadly, I have turned on comment moderation. I escaped the spammers for several years, but alas that innocent time is past. I refuse to put on word verification - I have so much trouble with it that I definitely restrict my commenting because of it. Sorry for the hassle and thanks for visiting!
A viola player by the tug of my heart, sidetracked by a career in technology. My favourite programming language is solder, and I'm a ham radio operator because it's an excuse to build lots of strange stuff.
I started a photo blog because of the beauty I first saw in Eric Tenin's Paris Daily Photo. Through him, I discovered the City Daily Photo ring, and I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm not as dedicated as he is though, so I do miss some days.
I had a hard time with this month's theme. I wasn't sure whether I wanted a straightforward photo of... well, edges, or whether I wanted to try for something a little more abstract. In the end, I couldn't make up my mind (fancy that!)
This is a photo of a puddle on the path in Vale. Well, it's a puddle when it's warmer and it's a sheet of ice when it's colder. Each successive thaw-and-freeze cycle has seen the puddle shrink a little, so that there are rings of ice describing the life of this small bit of water. These edges exist under the protection of the top cover of ice; the side facing up is very smooth while the edge below is ridged. What originally drew my eye to this was the frozen rivulet on the upper left side. New water trickles in to replace the water that seeps away, escaping through the ground.
I see many edges in this photo, air and earth, earth and ice, ice and ice, solid and liquid... This turned out to be a good theme for me to try. Please do check out the rest of the community! There are so many talented people, it takes me more than one night to go visit them all!
