It's the same sun, the same sky, and it's even the same me and you.





























Everything about London and city life is a world away from my usual slow lane existence. I parted company with my camera (other bloggers/photographers will maybe understand) to spend proper quality time with other humans, and anyway I didn't want to carry it around. Travelling light, I thought.

London is wonderful. Full of cafes, art, trees, bridges, a great big river in the middle of it and skyscapes of magical towers and turrets. Wasn't long before the phone camera was produced and put into full use!!

Before I left home I had taken some Autumn sky shots. On the Thames I remembered our western view over towards the Commeragh Mountains. Same western sky, same sun, same me. Wherever we go I thought, and sometimes we travel a long way, this world is our home.

I thought about all of you who share your comments and thoughts. Those insights about the looming winter, changing seasons, and fading light, and also about your strategies to stay positive and close to the earth. It has been like a show of community strength in challenging times!

And speaking of travelling a long way, I am thinking of all of you Irish people around the world today, same sky, same sun, same you. We all belong here, wherever we are.

  6. You have been having a dose of something I have just experienced: London in autumn light and then rattling home to the country and that is even better!

  9. Lovely! Sometimes it amazes me that we do all live under the same sun and the same sky...all these beautiful places and all these beautiful people. It really does bring it into perspective to think of it like that...

  12. yes but it just isn't the same wow as your calm beauty. Am getting into skyscapes more especially those reflected in London's architecture.
