The Pause Between Breaths.

These days have fled for a while, it seems. The sun tucked away in the clouds to rest, and we carry on, just grateful for the warmer air and the time to just while away.


We have some visitors coming this weekend, all the way from Paris. So we anticipate a week ahead of hanging out and chatting and eating, and I do hope a day or two like this.


So, I don't know how much blogging will get done next week, but I'll do my best. And in the meantime, one thing I'm sure I'll be able to manage is the newly-reborn A Year At My Back Door. I decided to resurrect this blog over a year after finishing up, when I realised that I have been taking these pictures all the time anyway! How could I not?

Just pictures. And one view. But ever changing, often magical, and sometimes breath-taking.

I look forward Ciara to following your other blog. Your photography is so beautiful. I so love the first one of the boys. It has a very vintage feel to it. Enjoy each & every wonderful moment for your guests.

Cheers ~

Your photographs are so magical - they pull you in and uplift the heart, they really do. Will run to your other blog. :)

Such a sweet take on summer.
It doesn't appear that the sun has gone anywhere at all.

I love these two photos. The first one is a classic, absolutely timeless. And the second of B making art with his hand prints in the sand magical.

Oh yes! I remember the other blog, I could hardly believe it was real, the ever-changing view. I hope to follow it too! xx

Brilliant ciara. The first one could be brittas bay 1979. As emma said, timeless.

Your photograph has a very painterly quality. Enjoy your summer days whilst the weather holds.

Gorgeous photo, Ciara- the top one is like a mid century travel/art poster- the type meant to just take you away... So you are inspired to take yourself away!

Just realized I'm logged into my other blog self, but hope you know which I am.

Always so glad to visit, always refreshed after!
