Homo erectus

This is where I walked this morning.
And I just loved it!
And I am never going to tell anybody that I sat on my bum in the long grass to take the pictures of the fluffy little balls of nature against the sun and that I couldn’t get up again because of the knees and the balance and yes, the age, and that I sat there for a few minutes IMG_2390casually pretending that that is exactly where I wanted to be but I am sure I didn’t convince the dogs because they sat in a straight stripe in front of me staring and I am almost sure I heard them laugh but I am 100% sure they were giggling hysterically when I got onto my knees and joined them on all fours and nonchalantly walked like a fat bull terrier to a spot where I was able to pull myself up to the homo erectus position again.
And I am also not giving away the secret that seeing the world from canine level, so close to earth, truly gave me a new perspective on the wonders of nature.
I am keeping all of this, to myself.

      Thanks Rachel. I usually try and be out there by 7am. It really is the best time of day – it is cold yes, but the air is fresh and beautiful.

    Behind the complicated hides the simplicity of life… and you always seem to find and celebrate it. Love your photographs too.
