My Sunday Photo 11th November 2018

The Door

The Door

It was drizzling with rain and I was making my way up the path. I was alone and the walk from the car park was proving a little difficult. I decided to wait for Graham who was moving the car to another parking place.

Then the sun came out for an instance and I wondered what this path would look like in the summer. Would there be lots of flowers among those leaves? I’m sure it would look so pretty. I thought it looked pretty anyway so I lifted up my camera and balanced myself on one stick while I took a photo. 

The photo is wonky. I could have edited it to make it straight, but I’ve not edited it at all. I think it captures that moment. My wonky moment on a path waiting for help because I couldn’t carry on. If I’d not stopped would I have noticed the door at all, would I have thought about the flowers, would I have appreciated the small burst of sunshine amid the rain. 

I wasn’t heading towards the door. The entrance to the building was directly to the left where three steps led up to a PVC door with a window. That’s why I couldn’t manage to go on. It was the steps that prevented me, something that you can’t even see here. 

The next hour or so was okay before the day went drastically downhill with a bang. But that’s a story for another day. When bad things happen it’s hard to focus on the good. This photo is the opposite of that, I saw something nice even though my path was much tougher.

    I am so sorry to read that things went downhill but this is a lovely photo. I like the fact it is wonky. It adds movement – like you are walking towards the door.

    Lovely photo. You are right. You probably wouldn’t have noticed anything if you hadn’t have stopped.

    Sorry to hear that your day was a bit rough, but what a lovely capture! I can imagine that it would be full of colour come Springtime.

    I hope things are a little easier now. x

    Hi Anne, I’m a great believer in just stopping and taking things in. If we don’t there is so much we could be missing. The wonkiness of your photo suits it and I bet it does look pretty in spring.

    I rush around so much that I know the importance of stopping for a moment to take things in. I make a lot of cards and think an image put on at wonky angle looks far more interesting than one that is straight!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
