Dawn in Shropshire photographed by Anthony Sargeant



Dawn at 7.33am on the 21st March 2016 photographed from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home by Tony Sargeant. The trees are still bare but the first haze of green is appearing on the branches although there are still frosts on the ground after a clear night like this was.

Shropshire River Corve in flood – 7th Feb 2016



Not as bad as the previous photograph of the River Corve flooding in 2014 but after yesterday’s continuous heavy rain the water has made its way of the hills into the river and this is the result photographed by Anthony Sargeant at 9.00am this morning of the 7th February 2016.

The Outsider by Tony Sargeant


The Outsider

Always separated by longing to belong

from belonging itself.

Always seeking comfort in companionship,

Yet, by seeking,

blocking that internal path

that ought to lead thereto.

Always seeking,

thus never arriving.

Endlessly travelling

but never reaching

the longed for terminus

Wherein others seem to have dwelt all their lives,

or so it seems to the Outsider.

Always a long way off,

like the refrain of the Wandering Jew,

“Next year in Jerusalem”

“Next year”.
