The Thematic Photographic theme this week is ELECTRICITY.    Unfortunately my blog must be short, but I can only post this one shot for the subject!

Do go to the link above to see other electrical, and far more interesting, subjects.

Its the end of the year, leaves, plants die, or go into hibernation.   (Now there's a thought - I've always thought hibernation would be a good idea when the ice and snow besets us!)

So here's a few things at the end of their lives.   To see other thoughts on the subject, go over to Carmi's Thematic Photographs - I'm sure there will be some interesting "takes" on this subject!

These are the roots of a lovely old beech tree that was cut down a few years back.   Well, half cut down, the Council left about 20ft still there, chopped off straight across, totally unnatural looking.   Now seedlings are growing in the cracks between the roots - holly, birch and various unidentified plants.  I think it looks rather odd!

The end of the year at Tittesworth Reservoir in Staffordshire.   It was a beautiful day, but the leaves were falling fast, and winter felt just round the corner.

We all get old, its a fact of life.   None of us will live for ever.    This is me last year, on my 80th birthday.   I had a wonderful party at my daughter's home, with all the family there.   Now, I have to say that my mind feels a great deal younger than my body, and I am definitely not ready to die yet!!   Its hard to accept the fact that one day I simply will not be here any more, and that everyone else will just go on living without me!!  

Go on, go that link above, I'm sure there are some happier blogs to see!!
