no lens

Were this a photo of England, you’d be pretty safe in the assumption that today is chilly, rainswept and dull. What no lens can convey to you, across the digital ether, is the heat today brings. The clouds are a thermal blanket, the winds throw heat into every space.

And no lens can adequately capture the little possum who has taken shelter from this slightly unnerving day. He perches in an abandoned nest just outside the kitchen window. Sometimes the gusts nudge him out of slumber, but the heat lulls him back to dreamland soon enough.
