In the Meantime

See  policyofsubster

Last Sunday, Suby and I were at Greenwich Park near the Royal Observatory and GMT - Greenwich Mean Time, the home of time since 1884. It got me thinking about one of my favourite themes, once again...

In The Mean Time

As Summer's sultry touch takes its leave off our bronzed complexion and August starts to covertly open the door for Autumn's fresh breeze, these are the last of the long, lazy days of summer lulling us to a sense of endless idleness as we sit on open fields, look up to the open blue skies, and feel alive to the depths of our souls. The summer's almost over. The days are getting colder, the nights are falling earlier. Soon enough there will come the days of dreary dull darkness, as we huddle in our warm winter clothes, draw the blanket up to our eyes and wait the winter out till the next summer.

Anything we dream of doing, we'll put it off till the long days of sunshine and blue skies. We'll eat healthy, come summer. We'll exercise more, come summer. We'll go to the art exhibitions, come summer. We'll take the kids out more. We'll watch Tv less. We'll lose that extra pound or two... Come summer. In the meantime, we will huddle up and hibernate.

Why let a whole year pass by in anticipation of a dreamy season sometime in the future?

Many a summer of our years may come and go; many a summer of our lives will come and go. In the meantime, instead of waiting for the happiness or opportunities of the next season, or mourning the passing of one, why don't we make the most of here and now. Any season, any day of the week... Take a brisk walk to clear your head, run around a field with your dog in the remaining days of summer, collect autumn leaves of a million different shades of brown in October, revel in the beauty of a glorious whitre landscape in winter, go snowfighting, collect to first daisies of a new season in April.

In the meantime, live. Do not postpone living, do not banish it all to one single season where the days are long and living is easy. Every single day, in the meantime, celebrate life and each second spent laughing.

mans best friend, lovely shot!!....nice words too....winter gives me mixed feelings, I love the cold cuz it keeps me fresh..but the gloomy days and early nites have a greater effect of sadness on me

I cant understand how September is just 2 days away....I really really am not liking it at all
Suby & Sinem: In this case, a girl's best friend. The gloomy days and early nights are not for me either, Dezhare; come to think of it, neither is the cold for that matter smile 'Wake me up when September ends' indeed...
Thanks for taking the time to read the text. Sinem

What a superb shot this is. I love the interaction between th two main protagonists.

The only thing that could possibly have have improved it for me is if they were a little more to the right of centre. As they are moving so swiftly it would give them a little more space to run into.

This would need to be done purely by cropping some excess from the right because at this moment the girl is perfectly placed between two people in the background who have clearly slipped on the same banana skin.

excellent capture of the motion! i love the composition of this photo. i'd just wish a greater depth of field, because people lying on the grass are well captured too.
