It was a glorious Easter Sunday today; I felt very happy to be out on a walk in one of the local parks with my favourite boys this morning. It was a bit cold with a chilly wind, especially up on the hill, but morning spring sunshine painted the sky and the grass resplendent rich colours, and the air was imbued with crisp new life freshness.
~ Happy Easter! ~

The ancient ruins of Kirkstall Abbey in my neighbourhood must be one of the most beautiful sites in Yorkshire right now with its masses of delightful daffodils bobbing and swaying cheerfully wherever you look. A walk around the place at this time of the year cannot fail to make your day even on a rather chilly and cloudy morning like today. G and I have formed a habit of walking our dog Midge together as often as possible, which is a wonderful thing in many ways; from my photography point of view, it means that I have a much freer mind and hands to take pics and videos.....

Some black & white mood inspired by Patti Smith's book of b&w photographs "Camera Solo" while I'm contemplating a return to my beloved Haworth after a long long absence.
|Part of 2019 "How My Light Is Spent" installation in the cellar of Brontë Parsonage Museum which commemorated Patrick Brontë's cataract surgery on his eye and subsequent period of convalescence in Manchester, in 1846.|
Colour versions and other photographs as well as videos I took in and around Haworth on the same day can be viewed in this blog post.

|A beach on the river Aire in Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve, Leeds. It was a cold |
and drizzly day and I had the beach to myself.

created a quick, impromptu still life.

From the usual Sunday walk yesterday with my bestie; we are still keeping it local. What a glorious day it was! Sunshine, spring flowers, bird song and balmy air. Perfection!
