Spook-tacular

A couple of weeks ago, we woke up to a world transformed.

Trees and boats floated out of the freezing fog

Like soft ghosts;

The path along the lake looked as if it was

Covered in cotton wool.

As I walked my daughter to the train station in the early morning,

Our spirits lifted in this new world of fog and cold.

On the way home, a golden splash of colour

Transported me into the world of Monet.

Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience. – Paul Cezanne

  1. Fantastic, foggy, mysterious skies and the perfect splash of color in the last shot is indeed a glimpse of Monet! Beautiful, beautiful captures for the day, Fiona!! Visiting your blog is always a delightful way to begin my day — any day! Hope you have a great week!

  2. You’ve put together a moody post befitting the hallowed season, Fi… and for that the chill it sends down my spine it is truly perfect! But I must equally admit that this does not help to make me eager to embrace the transition from tropical summer to eastern EU winter I am soon to experience! LOL!

  3. Beautiful mysterious and um, cold! But I’m trying to ignore that. I absolutely LOVE the Cezanne quote and am stealing it for my motto ;>)….it sounds so much better than saying “wow, I forgot how (….. ) made me feel yesterday!” Seriously, I am off to look up the context of that quote. I really do love it.

  4. I love the fog like you do, seeing how you took these photos and wrote those poetical lines. I also loved the photos of Tosca and the story of her and the old lady. Very touching.
