I took a fair few photos today, some in the Town Hall of the Stained Glass Windows and some of the flora, but they are posts for tomorrow. As I was photographing some flowers and buds, I heard quacking from overhead so quickly adjusted my aiming. I managed three shots and then someone came up and started talking to me about the height of the river.

I don’t think these came out too badly considering.

International Women’s Day – March 8th, 2014

Women should always remember that they are special

The Why About This

By pedrojperez2

Depending on where you live in the world it is already International Women’s Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this celebration, allow me to share some information about this day.

While there have been various Women’s Day Celebrations in different parts of the world historically, it was in 1977 that the U.N. (United Nations) invited members to proclaim March 8th as the U.N. day for Women’s Rights and World Peace. Many countries now actively celebrate this day.

For both men and women this is an important day to note. We humans, of this planet Earth, cannot move forward without all of us working towards a goal of harmony, peace and growth for ourselves and  our planet.

International Women’s Day is about encouraging the freedom and rights all women are entitled to and deserve.

Some excellent resources to find out more.

A Few Randoms – And No Birds

No birds will please some people. These are a few photos that I took over the last few days.

The tug was on the other side of the wall and plowing through the waves.

The butterfly was the first of the season that I have seen. There were two of them flitting around. Sorry it is not in focus, this only landed for a second.
