So very softly captured Elizabeth! I love it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Richard!! I'm so happy you do!
Now, for some reason, I'm remembering a childhood hymn..."softly and tenderly."
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Hmmmm - I don't know that one...

Oh very clever! I'm amazed what you see to photograph. I heard once an expression "I have sight but no vision"; some days that's me, too.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Alan! Thank you for such a kind compliment. I really love seeing the "macro" world... maybe because I'm micro?! smile
You have incredible vision Alan - I can only aspire to create the landscapes you do!

The prefect description of the Thames in Central London. Good photo of one of my favourite areas.

My next London photobook #5 will be along the embankment - it made such a difference opening the private areas up to allow walking along the river.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Mike!

I can't imagine not being able to walk along the river... it's such a personality! I look forward to your next book!

"Killing Me Softly"

Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Singing my life with his words,
Killing me softly with his song,
Killing me softly with his song,
Telling my whole life with his words,
Killing me softly with his song.

Oih, I always thought the guy she refers to, must really be singing very bad.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I've always LOVED that song!

I know what you mean about the chorus...

Funny how lyrics and music can effect us though - years ago now, I was driving to my in-laws home for what I feared might be the last time I'd ever see them (because I was going to leave their son a week later after 23 years of marriage...) I started to shake and cry. I prayed to God to let me know I was doing the right thing. At that very moment,Jason Mraz came on the radio with "Details in the Fabric". I knew right then - God himself was saying "Calm down, deep breaths... hold your own, know your name, and go your own way"

Lovely picture, it reminded me of a favourite Boys of the Lough track "Sweet Thames flow softly" which I had on vinyl (many moons ago!)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh - I'm glad I could stir a fond memory!
Mmm - clever!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Why thank you!
A most unusual image but one I like very much.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Brian! I really appreciate the compliment!!!

Great capture Elizabeth well spotted.

Just an old softy Elizabeth... you must be referring to Frankgrin
....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You have no idea how true that is smile ... that funny, witty, sarcastic, self- effacing English attitude belies a very tender, sensitive, intuitive soul...
