Weekly Photo Challenge – Habit

Habit. Blogging is one habit that has been broken, not by design, and I’m hoping that I will be back to it next week. I have missed putting my thoughts and feelings into words, so it will be good to get back to it.

During my ‘absence’ I have developed other habits. The main one is walking on a regular basis. It’s been good for my health, and now that my physiotherapy is well underway I’m enjoying being out in the open air. I take my camera with me wherever I go, and many of the pictures I’ve shared with you over the summer have been taken during such a walk.

Having lived in the area for many years I became very aware of how few records there are of our surroundings. Many of my pictures are taken ‘from the hip’, or rather, surreptitiously. My favourite walk is to head towards our nature reserve, but to do that I have a 7 minute walk along a quiet road. We know many people that live along there, and recently one elderly couple moved out into sheltered accommodation. Their house has now undergone a vast ‘rebuild’ by the new owner. I managed to snap a picture when no-one was looking.

This picture symbolises another aspect of ‘habit’. Everyone wants to make ‘their’ mark on their property, their ‘habit-ation’ must be individual and no remnant of another’s individuality must remain.

To mark the return to a habit I’ve begun an update of my blog, with a new background and header. Hope you like it.

Full details of the challenge can be found here. A daily habit is also featured here on Just Snaps…

  2. Good luck with getting back into blogging and I like your new background. Walking is such a great way to not only get exercise (improving your body’s connections), but to connect with the place and people of that place.
