a wind has blown the rain away

Wandsworth Common big pond

a wind has blown the rain away and blown
the sky away and all the leaves away,
and the trees stand. I think i too have known
autumn too long

(and what have you to say,
wind wind wind—did you love somebody
and have you the petal of somewhere in your heart
pinched from dumb summer?
O crazy daddy
of death dance cruelly for us and start

the last leaf whirling in the final brain
of air!)Let us as we have seen see
doom’s integration………a wind has blown the rain

away and the leaves and the sky and the
trees stand:
the trees stand. The trees,
suddenly wait against the moon’s face.

Little Fluffy Clouds

Woman-on-railway-bridge-battersea with little fluffy clouds

A beautiful bright August day with little fluffy clouds overhead. This is taken on the Culvert Road railway footbridge in Battersea. The lens is a fisheye extender over a 24mm Tokina lens. If my maths is correct, it takes it down to about 15mm. I was using an 8mm prime not long after. Photos to follow (obviously this post is written in the future and posted in the past).
