Last weekend I went to a Turner exhibition in Greenwich, South London. After enjoying that I came back up into the city and decided to play tourist. I went to St Paul's Cathedral and while I was there it seemed a good idea to climb the dome as high as you can go and I took a picture from the top. The City Of London by LordLJCornellPhotos
It was great fun to do and was something I hadn't done since I was a kid. It is all too easy to take these places for granted when you are around them all the time. I enjoyed it very much. This is roughly the same thing I have been doing with my photography and my travelling in the last few years. I have been journeying in the UK to places I have never been before and to places I am very familiar with to get to know my own country after years of neglecting it. This is the source of the pictures you have been looking at in my own little area of dA. I am always delighted and amazed at the warm response my pictures have had among you and am still thanking each and every one of you on a daily basis. I hope along the way I have been able to express my own admiration of you all and your wonderful works. I hope I have. If not I will try harder. 
At this time of year my work life is in danger of taking over for three or four weeks though I will do my best to be here as much as I can. It is the busiest time of year for me but it will soon be back to normal in the middle of April. I apologise if I get behind but I will catch up. I always catch up in the end.
Thank you all so much for your constant support and your lovely comments. I love that part of this more than anything. I love chatting and getting to know you. You are a bunch of really talented and loving people. I am honoured to have met you here and would love to meet you all in person.
As we move into Spring I always have a feeling of optimism. Winter here has not been cold but it has been very very wet. I am glad to move into Spring. 
Here is a selection of images that have grabbed me recently. I wish I could just share the whole lot as I hate leaving anyone out. Here they are though.

Just love that photo from the dome, Larry! Well done for enjoying yourself. We all need to do that once in a while. Thanks so much for creating such a lovely feature and for including my photo of Kandersteg under Birre mountain in there despite the fact that it's definitely a winter photo, not a Spring one. Will have to start getting Spring up and going.

Try not to work too hard, although I think we all know about busy seasons, so just relax and know that all your friends on DA will be understanding and look forward to having you back when the crunch period is over. In the meantime, thanks so much for those lovely words and same back to you!! :tighthug:

I have managed to stay on top of the game this first week. 
I was delighted to include your picture. Despite the title of the journal the pictures were not really meant to be Spring related.
It just seems there were a lot of them because we were all out there shooting new flowers after such a grim winter. :hug:

One week down , three or four to go :hug:

Hang in there! At least it's a finite time frame. I am so scattered I can't seem to get it together, but need to do so sooner rather than later. So am going to try to get a few things off my plate tonight in preparation for the coming week. But couldn't resist re-editing a couple of my old photos to try out my new software. It takes me a while to learn and some courage to try different "buttons". Turned cold here this weekend after a glorious week, my garden is in full bloom and would love to be outside enjoying it all, but it's windy and chilly and wet--wet snow in the mountains and some of the cold soggy stuff coming our way on Tuesday, evidently. And I just put all the winter clothes away. sigh. But the daffodils are glorious so all my efforts at planting bulbs were worth it!

Nicely said. It is something I do regret too; living in a beautiful place and did not take the proper advantage of the things that it has to offer.
Back then I was not taking pictures but now that I do, I go visit sometimes and I'm more aware on the surroundings ;).
It is my home after all :heart:.
Beautiful feature Lawrence, don't work too hard and we all hope to see you around soon. :)
