Monochrome wildflowers

Back to work today after four days off. No photography stuff today other than a bit of scanning.

The coronavirus situation in the country continues to apall with the shameless incompetence and double-standards at play in our so-called government. Apologies for mistakes are not a sign of weakness, they are a sign of strength. Respect is earned by those who accept and learn from their errors, not by those who obfuscate and pass the blame, no matter whether I support their broader views or not.

I wonder how long deceit, failure to accept responsibility and lack of accountability can last until something has to give? Sadly, I suspect a long time. There’s a tribalism in politics that has grown in recent years where groups of people hitch their allegiance to one wagon or another and refuse to get off, no matter the road it takes. It’s a terrible “us and them” situation that fosters the worst in people. I despair of it.

Anyway, this is a photography blog, not some political rant, so here’re some flowers.

  1. That rail fencing and the DoF with the woodland in the back make for an appealing, tidy frame. Here’s a toast of despair, duly noted……

  2. It’s difficult not to be political at the moment unfortunately. So many decisions and important actions are given by people that we’re meant to trust in those moments. Some countries react better than others.
    Lovely picture. I will actually be sharing similar photos… cheers!

    1. Thanks Yuri. Yep, these are frustrating times. I know it’s easy to criticise from the sidelines, and I don’t have any issue with people getting complicated things wrong sometimes, or just doing something foolish from time to time – we all do it. My annoyance is when people fail to take responsibility for their mistakes.

      I look forward to seeing your photos (apologies if you’ve already posted them – I’ve gotten behind in reading the blogs I follow and need to catch up!).
