Do you remember how – years ago- we had a thing running where we all took a shot from our back door and shared it and linked it and other people joined in!
We had a lot of fun with that!
I think I took a shot from the same spot for a number of days too – or weeks – I can’t remember. I fell down a rabbit hole when I tried to look back over the years of blog posts to find that period – then I realized that this blog has been running since July 2011!!! so there is no chance of me ever finding those shots anyway – I cannot even remember what year that was – I am not one of those people who remembers numbers. However- it was a fun idea.
So, I thought I would post a shot every Sunday taken from my FRONT DOOR. Taken in the sunrise filled morning light across the pond to the maple tree. It might be fun to see the autumnal changes that are now in the wind.
And it is windy this morning.
Now that I think about it – I wonder if I should make a 20 second video then you could hear what I hear on a Sunday morning. And if you join me we could hear what you hear from your front door or front window on a Sunday morning. I am hoping for traffic and maybe people chatting in the background. Different countries with different accents and languages. The sky above the rooftops. Birds. Or your garden or a big tree. Some of you even have fields or beaches outside your front door. Is that too scary? Would you feel too exposed? Would you like to help me create this little micro-travel-doco with your Sunday morning view?
It would be a gift actually, to those of us who are not able to travel.
As lock downs still coming and going this might be a fun way to think OUTwards. And help those of us struggling with that trapped feeling. Intellectually we know we are not trapped but …
What do you think?
If you do – don’t forget to link thekitchensgarden so I can come and look, and also leave a note in the comments so The Fellowship can come and visit you and see your little Sunday morning video or picture and watch the progression of the Sunday Seasons for as long as you can be bothered.
Here is my first video. I need to make a little platform to eliminate that camera wobble.
SEASONS OF SUNDAY.
PS – if you don’t have a blog of your own you can send me your picture or video and I will post it here next Sunday. Let me know in the comments and I will send you an email address.
I don’t have a blog, but I’d love to join in! Your view is so peaceful!
You can join in for sure! Do you have Instagram or Facebook- I will run it there as well – so we can all join in easily.
I don’t have a blog, but I’d love to join in! Your view is so peaceful.
Celia, the sound of water, the calm and the sky are a picture perfect Sunday morning. I like the idea of sharing our own Sunday views. Alas, I don’t have a blog and I’m not very savvy with technology but I can take a picture on my phone.
Have a blessed Sunday.
That’s all we need! I wish we could publish photos in the comments – that would make everything so much easier!!
i love this
I have a feeling this will be fun!!
I love this also! Very fun- thanks Cecilia!
ooopsie= forgot to post my blog’s link! https://katheworsley.blogspot.com/2021/10/one-image-week-on-sunday-october-17-2021.html
I think it was a daily picture of the tree that later split and then John strapped it together.
I should take another pic of that tree! It is still growing! I took the strap off and it did not fall apart. Amazing.
I thought it was the picture out the door from the porch where we could see the tree house and all the changes happening from that view?
I think you could be right!
What a nice idea. I’d love to have the opportunity to watch your maple tree (and all the other pond things you’ve planted) grow. That’s one of the things about gardening that is so rewarding seeing the changes that you make materialize right before your eyes.
I can send pictures but from now till spring (and flowers and bushes beginning to come along) there won’t be much to see, just the houses caty-corner across the street and the noisy traffic passing by although early Sunday morning is a slow time—–fewer student cars passing after a very late Saturday night.
I love this! I will definitely do a video. Don’t use my blog much anymore…hmmm. Will have to figure out best way to share.
You can do it on Instagram too! How about that? I would love it!!
I didn’t know you had running water in your pond…no wonder it’s so lovely.
Lovely lovely scene! I am not getting any sound though. I love sound. I remember the fun sounds of the pigs snorting up a storm. And the goats too!
You may need to turn the sound on- it may be set to mute?
Oops! I had my headphones on. No wonder! I heard the water this time.Just beautiful!
Okay. Just now I saw your yesterday’s post with the chaos of the chickens and ducks zipping about eating lettuce and whatnot. AND I heard their sounds. Thank you. Thank you. You’re going to be sick of hearing from me.
Serene Sunday sounds and view ♡ As I commented on Insta I think it’s a wonderful idea, and look forward to joining in… and Insta for me is easiest… a good thing about social media is there’s a platform for everyone!
Absolutely! It will be great!! Thank you!
Sadly I don’t do Instagram or Facebook… I am almost tempted to join, just to see everyone’s photos! Any chance of collating them on your blog here? At least I can look forward to seeing yours!
Hi hon. Not sure I have the time for that anymore. One day I hope things slow down but not until I be am too old to work!!
Sounds like fun – I am up for it- do I just post on my blog each Sunday and send you the link? How will that work?
Yes! Just that – pop the link in my comments so we can all wander over.
I don’t have a blog but would love to join in via Instagram.
That’s a beautiful view!
This reminded me… During the first lockdowns last year, someone started a website called WindowSwap: https://www.window-swap.com/
It’s full of clips that people have taken from their windows around the world. I find it quite relaxing to see someone else’s view, hear the sounds surrounding them and, for a minute, imagine what life might be like in their reality. Covid has made my world so small and it helps to look outwards, as you say.
It was very breezy here yesterday as well.
This sounds wonderful, I’ll give it a try. See ya Sunday!
That will be great!
My view from my front door is not nearly so nice as yours and I’m not going to have it much longer anyway. But I will enjoy seeing what everyone else comes up with on their own.
You can do your Sunday view from anywhere!
I’ll be having a lot of anywhere. Sold my house and as yet, destination unknown. Traveling for a while first.
Then I look forward to your Sunday morning from EVERYWHERE!
A wonderful idea!
I don’t love Facebook, but have kept it around for a couple of very special pages – one being “View from my window” which started at the beginning of Covid last year. It’s a beautiful way to travel the world while we can’t … not that I could anyway. Money is my long-term restriction haha
I look forward to joining in 💞💞💞
That is great!! Thank you!
This is good news
