Spotlight: Photography with Poems by Ann Tudball (#02)

After the great feedback of last posting of Ann’s photography and work, we have decided to make this a regular feature. Once a month we will share beautiful images, poems and other writings, so that you can have something else to enjoy. We think photography and words go together well, and we hope you enjoy.

In episode #2 we have a poem titled “You are my destiny” and a written piece titled “Inner Strength”.

Ann is a South Wales based photographer with a stunning website and also stunning Instagram pages. You’ll find more information about her, her photos and poems in the links at the bottom of this page.

“You are my destiny… “

Tis when falls the night
I hear my silent voice
I can see you
I can touch you
You are my destiny

I laugh when you laugh
I cry when you cry
I fear when you fear
Your soul is my soul
You are my destiny

I touch your face to heal the pain
For deep in your eyes lies tomorrow’s dream
I bathed you in cool waters
That flow to the distance beyond
You are my destiny.

If there’s another world you seek
For stay in mine
Winning is easy and losing is hard
You go my loss has won
You are my ever destiny…

“Inner Strength”

I remember walking alone listing to some beautiful music. We were told to take one walk a day. The feeling I felt was like nothing before. In life we control how we wish to live our lives, but not anymore. I felt scared and unsure of what lied before us. I watched on at families and thought how was this going to be explained to young children. Time went on and things got worse. How can life change so suddenly?

As the time past I somehow found inner strength, even on times I felt like giving up. I turned to family and friends and even though it hurt that I couldn’t see them, they were there. If you needed any confirmation of who loved and cared for you, this was it.

We had time to explore more, maybe finding new hobbies and finding yourself again. I looked to nature and found beauty on my doorstep that I may never had discovered before. It brought us inner strength.

Something, and I will leave that to your own thoughts has kept us going. 2021 is approaching fast and we are still unsure what lies ahead, but we have our inner strength to continue to be who we are, love those who love us, and do what we love doing. Remain proud and brave in our current war with life… A Tudball

Spotlight: Photography with Poems by Ann Tudball

Photography is great, and sometimes words and images can sit nicely together. After seeing one of my images that I put up recently my friend Ann Tudball contacted me about sharing some of her poems with one of my photos. Of course I was delighted to do this, and so we’ve put together this guy you.

We have two images, “Winter” by myself, and “Summer” by Ann. The photographs along with the words of the poetry is a beautiful idea, and one I’ll hope you’ll enjoy.

Ann is a South Wales based photographer with a stunning website and also stunning Instagram pages. You’ll find more information about her, her photos and poems in the links at the bottom of this page.


This first poem is for the winter photograph:

“Winter walks.”

Autumn is over, colours be no more.
Trees left bare and stark.
Winter arrives, the holly shines, the berries bright.
Wet leaves crunch beneath my feet.
The warmth of wool to aid the chill.
Little lights twinkle at every door, welcoming the festive season once more.
Low afternoon sunset warms my cold face.
Darkness will come and winter walks alone are no longer safe…


The second photos are for the summer photograph:

“The Sunflower Field.”

I want to lie in the sunflower field
I want to feel fearless and free, just you and me
To smell the sweet scent of summer, just you and me
I want to count the passing clouds, just you and me
To hear the distance sound of silence, just you and me
I want to find the dreams we dream, just you and me
While I lie in the sunflower field, just you and me.
