A Spring Walk and Spring Cleaning


This morning Sophie and I grabbed our cameras and walked up to the village.


We strolled along the abandoned railway tracks and past the old station platform.


We spotted a pile of corrugated iron. Could it have been part of the old railway station?


This pile of junk turned out to be a pile of treasure. Look at all these colours, shapes and textures...











We snapped away, taking photo after photo... and I thought about how I could use my photos as inspiration for some artwork.


When we arrived home, I walked around the kitchen...


taking photos of pots and pans and whisks and colanders...


forks...


and cupboard doors...


and a self-portrait in the coffee machine...


And then I noticed something...

All the shiny surfaces were smudged with fingerprints, and the hanging saucepan rack was covered with dust. 

So I found a bucket and filled it with water and climbed up onto the kitchen bench to clean the rack..

While I was up high, I noticed the ceiling fan was covered with dust so I climbed up onto a chair and cleaned it too.

While I was up on the chair, I noticed there was dust on the rail over the sliding door, so I dragged my chair over and climbed up and cleaned it as well.

Then I noticed more dust on top of the dresser.

But this time I closed my eyes, settled myself on the sofa and read a book. 


Have you taken any photos recently? And are you reading anything interesting at the moment? I hope you haven't had to spring clean like me!
