Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. On Thursday I met my personal commitment and did the Out of the Shadows walk. (Thank you to all those who commented. I do know that suicide is a confronting subject for many). There was a breakfast meet up after the walk - making use of a coffee-cart at the walk's starting point.
However as usual I was peopled out and skipped breakfast. Instead I walked into town to do an early shift on the crisis line. It wasn't seven when I started walking (slowly), and the streets were quiet and often beautiful. Equanimity was restored.
So, as I so often say, come walk with me. And of course, a lot of my predictable focus was on birds and gardens.
I do love the way that the native birds (and this is a crimson rosella) are happy in our suburbs.
I really like this garden. I am only in this part of town once a year (for the Out of The Shadows Walk) and I look forward to seeing how it has developed since my last visit. I think it looks really inviting.
The angels continue to crowd this balcony and I smiled to see that it looks as if there is a fallen angel behind them. I am sure there is a story here...
It looks as if what was once a very impressive single residence is now apartments. And no doubt fairly expensive ones.
Gates fascinate me too.
I think that is a backpack - but it does look as if the child has sprouted wings...
I do hope that heavily pruned plant comes back.
In the space of less than a block everything changes as we move into a much more modern (and less personally appealing) part of town.
There are still flowers though - which I welcome.
I hope you all find peace and beauty in your week.
