This morning at about 7.30 I was greeted by the sight of the sun rising over the Tower of London. The air was still and warm, you could still hear birdsong over the noise of the traffic, there was almost no one else about. It was as near to a perfect morning as I have seen on a work day.

Could someone please let me know what is going on. I am getting confused and have no idea what I am meant to be wearing from one say to the next.

You don't take a photograph, you ask, quietly, to borrow it.
This set my mind going in a number of ways. Firstly, thinking about photos generally, do we ever ask if we can take, let alone borrow, a photo these days? Time was, and in some cultures still is, that taking a photo was thought as a way of stealing your soul.
Secondly, I have been thinking about the difference between 'taking' and 'quietly asking'. So many of us assume we have a 'right' to do a thing or have a thing, when did we last ask, quietly, if it would be OK to do so?
I shall have to think about how I can build that into my life and so more quiet asking.
(Sorry about the finger over the lens.)
