Bermuda: Photos of the week ending Sept 7th 2013
I was out and about on Wednesday afternoon taking a rather long route back home after work, (via Harrington Sound no less) when traveling along Middle Road in Paget towards the Botanical Gardens I noticed a lovely glow coming from the back of the gardens. So many times I would ride by and say to myself I really should stop and go back and capture that and then keep going on my way, but I have been telling myself to be more disciplined and stop. You will never get the same chance again. So, I turned into a driveway, about faced and headed back to the gate.
There's a huge old Indian Rubber Tree, been growing there forever I'm sure. It sits in the low beams of the sun like some old dinosaur foot, resting on the ground. The way the light caught it just made it seem more old, wrinkled and tired than I'd seen it before.
Surprisingly, there is also growing out of nowhere, bamboo reaching straight up to the sky. There's not a lot of it mind you, but still, it's there in the middle of oleanders and Indian Rubber trees.
Sometimes you just have to stop and look. I mean really stand still. Open your eyes and slowly let your gaze drift around taking in the light. It's quite amazing light. All around the light is making even the boring seem more interesting.
So the next time you are out and about, stop. Look. Take it all in slowly. It's worth it.
