Hear the Call


The fearless thrive
craving the ride
The meek survive
biding their time

The edge is near
casting a dare
Fiercely tread
heart in hand

  1. Wonderful post — loved it, perhaps even moreso as I remember sitting in St. James Park, catching my breath after a lot of walking, gathering my thoughts and impressions … it was so peaceful..


  2. You’ve captured the emotion of thrill riders. 🙂 I never would have believed I’d have the nerve to ride so many coasters at Islands of Adventure in Florida, but couldn’t let the kids see my fear! lol


  3. That’s such a peaceful shot of the water and trees, and then my eye sees “the eye” .I really like the contrast of nature with engineering. I rode the eye as the sun was setting and lighting up the dome of St.Paul’s. Perfect time of day to see London from that vantage point.


    • Thanks! 🙂 Next time I go back, I’m going to try and get a shot of the Eye from the South side of the Thames, (but not from the embankment). I love capturing icons like that from unique angles.
