Tuesday means that it's time for Tag Tuesday, and our theme this week is decay.
For my tag I used a photo taken at an old Jewish graveyard in Brandenburg during a field trip there some years back. I cut a tag from recycled black card from an old calendar, and gave it the form of a cabinet card, as this reminds me of the form of a gravestone. I cut the photo to the same shape. The text is from the well-known hymn, 'Abide with me', which we used to sing at school in London, and although I am not a religious person, I always liked this hymn. I added a spot of colour with the flowers and left everything else in black and white. I love the way the stone is leaning against the tree, and how new shoots are springing up - the eternal cycle of life, death, decay and new life.
Today was rather wet, with lots of showers, so I didn't wander too far from home, and did three short walks, with total of just over 14000 steps (7 1/2 miles). In the afternoon the sun tried to come out, and the sky was really impressive.
At the Rhine there were dozens of wild geese, bobbing about in the water where a stream flows into the river, then taking off and flying away in groups. I stood there for so long that I got wet feet, but I loved watching them.
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
