‘When you’re walking the view shifts and changes.
Walking’s a form of hope.’
from ‘The World Without Us‘

Some days, after work, I don’t have time to go for the kind of walk that the passage above, which I quote on this blog so often, describes: a long walk, a wandering walk, a wondering walk. Some days there just aren’t enough hours of daylight left — not for that kind of walk.
There might be a few moments, though — just enough moments to dash down the road and glimpse a dark swathe of clouds in the sky —
— or the branches of a sheoak tree silhouetted against cotton-pink clouds —
— or a sea turned opal.
The day I took the photos in this post was one of those days. All I had left of that day were those few moments — the last few moments of the day. So I told myself that they were enough, those few moments.
And for a few moments they were. They really were.
