I took the last couple of days out after saying goodbye to an old friend whom I have known for many many years. Always sad to bid farewell to those with whom we have shared so much of our lives with.
I was also most grateful to those of you who unprompted still offered such kind words of support. (You know who you are?)
‘Old friends’ so the song goes…”They mean much more to us than the new friends. Because they know who you are; and they can see where you’ve been”
So today I decided I would take a leisurely though reflective visit to ‘The City of Winchester’ with my missus Julie.
We shared a spot of lunch before then taking a stroll through town eventually ending up sitting listening to the Winchester boys choir who were practising at their school behind the Cathedral. We then took the route alongside the gorgeous and very tranquil water meadows.
On our way though I noticed this young woman sitting at the the memorial monument which is situated in the absolutely stunning grounds of Winchester Cathedral. For some reason the image of her sitting there really did seem to resonate with me; and I wanted to capture her facial expression.
She looked like she might have been mulling over something really important? Maybe she was struggling to find an answer perhaps?
Whatever it might have been I was pleased to have managed to capture this shot as virtually as soon as I had taken it; she then stood up dusted herself down and walked off through the grounds and towards the High Street.
