Walking in the lockdown, in the shadow of a tall wall around a block of flats.  Ahead was an opening in the wall, one of the entrances to the flats, with the rising sun making the brickwork glow.

And there were sharp, linear shadows within the glow too, shadows from railings on the other side of the wall – but these were rogue shadows, rebels, transgressors, not conforming to the strict, even puritanical, lines of the brickwork’s rigid grid.

    • Yes, rebel shadows. And for an encore, well I’m going to put my right hand on my right hip, so that my right elbow sticks out. And then I’m going to hold my left upper arm in tight against my side, with my left forearm and hand sticking up at an acute angle. And then I’m going to burst in song:
      “I’m a little teapot short and stout,
      tip me this way and the tea pours out!”


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
