Peace For The New Year


JenT and Cardinal Guzman, both bloggers, published posts on the topic of 2016 in review.

It got me wondering what had stuck a chord with my readers in 2016. In fact, nothing did the way one photo got a lot of attention a couple of years ago. It is this photo of a auto-rickshaw driver in Delhi. I think someone in Delhi who recognised the driver must have come across the photo and then his friends and everyone in Delhi looked for it.


Back to the photo at the top of this article. I saw it in the folder on my hard drive today and want to make it the motto for the coming year. And the motto is – Peace.

From The Jane Austen Promenade in Bath

Note the modern spectacles that the woman in blue is wearing.

The spectacles on an otherwise lovely outfit meant that this photo didn’t make the cut in the article Tamara wrote about the Jane Austen Festival Grand Promenade In Bath.

And here is the full frame of the photo, so you can see that the photo at the top is a crop of about of 10% the full image. It is a testament (again) to the Fuji X100s camera.

And to give some context, at the end of the parade the participants walked on to a gathering in a nearby hall, and it was en-route to that that I took this photo.
