Swing Bridge

Swing Bridge

Today I Visited the Swing Bridge in St Peters, a suburb in Adelaide. . The bridge was built around 1920, reputedly to help sell land by a developer. It so great to be able to find these hidden gems in your own backyard.

Return to the Church

Church of the Good Shepard 2

Fifteen Years ago my wife and I where married in this Church. So we are back and it is just as beautiful as we remember, This time i was lucky enough to be able to Photograph it. The Church over looks Lake Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand.

Church of the Good Shepherd

Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo is the Church of the Good Shepherd, which, in 1935, was the first church built in the Mackenzie Basin. The church at Burkes Pass, St Patrick’s built in 1872 was the first church built by pioneers as a joint community effort, by Anglicans Presbyterian and Catholic settlers. Also a joint venture between Presbyterians and Anglicans, St Columba in Fairlie was built in 1879. The church at Lake Tekapo was designed by Christchurch architect R.S.D. Harman, based on sketches by a local artist, Esther Hope. The church is arguably one of the most photographed in New Zealand, and features an altar window that frames stunning views of the lake and mountains.

Enclosing all

Of part or past thats best left behind,

Opening all

To opportunities that may be beyond

A barrier protecting both before and after

A metaphor

This was taken on my walk around the Torrens lake last Sunday, and I have included the original Photograph as it was shot

There was a downpour just before the Photograph was taken, and it  gives  some really nice reflections that enhance the image !

Witheridge

Red Phone Booth

 

We stayed just near this Village and who could resist taking the Red Phone Box. the stocks and the church makes it more interesting.

From Wikipedia

Witheridge is a village and civil parish in the North Devon district of Devon, England. In 2001 the population of the parish was 1162. Its name is derived from the Old English for “Weather Ridge”, probably as a result of its exposed location on the top of a hill, which means it and surrounding hamlets such as Nomansland generally suffer from poor weather for much of the year.

Situated almost equidistant from Dartmoor and Exmoor, the village has earned the nickname the Gateway to the Two Moors Way. Butcher FJP Maunder established his business in the village in 1879, which taken over by his son became local butchers chain Lloyd Maunder.

The village is twinned with CambremerFrance, and the two villages have annual exchange trips (although not solely for students).

The Moment

Just a moment in time

A fleeting glimpse

Was that you ?

Yes !

No !

For a short time I was back there again

A point in time

That arrives

Then vanishes

It never lasts

It’s just a moment
