The River Crossing

“The River Crossing”

Superheadz / Kodak film

On summer days we all enjoy larking about by the River. Those days seem to go on forever. I recently finished reading a book and this quote stayed with me:

“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.”
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

The Shore

“The Shore”

Superheadz / Kodak Film

I am reading Hemingway, which I never thought I’d enjoy so much. Here’s a quote that seems to me to be true. The trick is to stop complaining, but very few people know what that means:

“There is nothing else than now. There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow. How old must you be before you know that? There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life.”
― Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

The Ocean

“The Ocean”

Superheadz Black Devil / Kodak film

“The heart can think of no devotion
Greater than being shore to the ocean-
Holding the curve of one position,
Counting an endless repetition.”

Robert Frost

Durham Cathedral

“Durham Cathedral”

Olympus 35RC / Ilford HP5+

This shot comes from the same roll of film as yesterday’s, and it’s easy to see how the film has degraded over the months. I don’t believe the picture has suffered for it, even so.
