Early morning visitors

This post is for my colleague Theadora Brack @People, Places and Bling! It is something I promised to do for her as I was commenting on her post recently when something similar happened. Perhaps you would all like to see!

This series of pictures reminds me of my work with brain-injured people. A particular test required people to arrange images in order to make a coherent story. There is very little apparent order here, but when these creatures make an appearance people on kayaks or boards try to close in. A fair bit of quiet circling goes on. So you can make up your own story. There are people on the beach just visible over the sand dune, but they are oblivious of the quiet interplay just off-shore.

This is maximum zoom on my little p&s camera, but gives you the idea I hope. Not enough time to get out of my pj’s. It was 8.15am daylight saving time.

I think it would be fair to say that this kayaker had a really good start to the day.

What do you think?

  1. Philippa, What a fantastical gift to receive on a Friday! What a way to kick-off the weekend! Thank you! From top to bottom, I the series. The colors are magnificent. How many creatures are we looking at? The circling is interesting! How often do they make cameo appearances? Again, Merci. I’m feeling happy and calm again. Perfect break for the eyes and spirit! T. (And thanks also for the shout-out.)

    1. Glad it gave you a boost for Friday Theadora! There was only one close to the kayak but a couple of other strays further away. Most of the circling is done by the boardriders/boaties although the dolphins can be a bit curious. Mostly in groups of 6 or 8. A big yachting regatta on out there at the moment! that’s for another day! Philippa

  2. This kayaker sure did have a great start to the day, but so did you by the look of this magnificent view! The final shot, with the sand, makes it so much more accessible, bringing us home and so much closer to what is happening out there.

    From the Antipodes to the delights of the lovely Theodora Black in Paris – what a treat!

    1. Thanks Patti! glad you enjoyed the swing across the globe. We had a stand-up paddle race out here this morning and now there is a wedding setting up! never dull. I did get a bit of painting done earlier…
