Thought for the day

I am Currently reading the Door to December by Dean Koontz , and I came across a part in the book in which I can really relate to and many others will I'm sure. he has decribed so well the times we are living in now, I just had to write it down :

“He thought about the rapidly changing world in which he lived. A new world, a science-fictional society, was growing up around him with disconcerting speed and Vigour. It was both exhilarating and frightening to be alive in these times. Mankind had acquired the ability to reach the stars, to take a giant leap off this world and spread out through the universe – but he had also acquired the ability to destroy the entire race before the inevitable immigration could begin. New technology – like the computer - freed men and women from all kinds of drudgery, saved them vast amounts of time. And yet … and yet the time saved did not seem to mean additional leisure or greater opportunities for meditation and reflection. Instead, with each new wave of technology, the pace of life increased; there was more to do, more choices to make more things to experience, and we seized upon those experiences eagerly and filled up the hours that had only moments ago become empty. Each year life seemed to be flitting past with far greater speed than the year before, as if god had turned up the control knob on the flow of time, but that wasn’t right, either, because even the concept of god seemed dated and hopelessly fantastic in an age in which the universe was being forced to let go of its mysteries almost on a daily basis. Science, technology and change were the only gods now, the new trinity; and while they were not consciously cruel and judgemental, as the old gods had been, they were too coldly indifferent to offer any comfort to the sick, the lonely, and the lost.”

Tour Of Britain 2010

a great opportunity to watch these wire men as they passed by our doorstep on their bikes in a flash of lycra.

here are some photos I took in melford and up Ballingdon Hill, Sally and I cycled to melford to catch a glimpse as the sped past and then quickly whizzed cross country via the railway track to catch them coming from Lavenham through sudbury and Up Ballingdon Hill, just about made it home cross country via kentwell hall to pick boys up from school. We had a good day !!

Favorite summer Flowers

Some flowers Taken at Sallys in Marjories Garden in August, all except the bees were taken using old lenses pentax takumar 50mm and a priacticar pentacon 70-200mm
Have enjoyed messing about with the old lenses they are manual focus only so its not so easy to get the shot you want most of the time but still fun and good practice.

And the Beans we planted earlier this year
