the strains of the third movement from James Barnes‘ Third Symphony is making me all pensive. so thought i’d put up some pictures of our day out at hort park one sunny weekday.
it was relatively un-peopled and in spite of the scorching sun, it was the scent of the earth everywhere at once that i remember most. i learnt also that the sound of the forest is a different type of quiet – a stillness which the city cannot replicate.
after a minor detour, we finally stumbled upon the henderson waves.
it was a nice visual change from the lushness that was behind us, but most special of all was the feeling of walking on the wooden boards high up in the sky; lounging on the cool planks beneath the crest of waves, sitting around with nothing in particular to do but to watch the light and shadows play.
all in all a pretty ok day i thought.
