Memories From a Box




Memories From a Box





A set of memories within two broken covers
Cathedral towers in black and white
Cast iron symbol of a proud nation
White stone church on highest hill
Glass covered pleasure as views glide by
Artists at work under shady trees
Cobbles underfoot in a textured square

The dome of a hero above a granite tomb
A triumphal arch, and a grand avenue
Expo architecture, symmetry in stone
An old friend, probably a flame
A house in a suburb a garden to tame
Grand images of the city at night
Alive and with moving lines of light

A Collection of friends, now forgotten
Different journeys paths that part
Famous bridges over a rivers ring
Views from a hotel window and different string
Art card postcards to make you think
Sepia photos of a place once loved
Famous rock stars their tracks recalled
A pebble beach is not ignored
A school photo in gold trim frame
VW camper van broken down again







Stark picture of a 60’s tower,
A crane against a cloudy sky
Silhouette, a winter tree on a lonely hill
An abstract of the nails spill
A group of boys before the race
Two swans swimming on a silken lake
The 'Underground' sign on a London street
The expedition to Snowdon a photo to keep

A picture of a stone built abbey
There the very first photograph taken
And a double exposure of a very close friend
Still life images of oil lamp and pans
Together with the mechanism of a mantle clock
A wheeled waste bin atop a grid
A spider’s web outlined in frost
And a foggy day at the rivers edge
The Ball and chain from an industrial crane

A certificate won for playing the trumpet
A close up of an old door latch
A very old barn without its thatch
A fish eye view to distort the street
A fallen tree across the creek
The casting shadow as the sun goes down
Runner’s legs in a lens shown round
A Lake in winter cold and still
Flotsam at the waters edge
Pupil in shorts and a rugby shirt

A fox in close up on a local lawn
Ventilator grids shown at dawn
Helicopter hovers overhead
Tudor chimneys stand into the sky
Steel stairs fixed, black paint and rusting
Sculpture of a horse’s head
And a street scene in black and white
Pleasant view of a famous hill
Across a low stone wall close to home
A planet like view of an office space
The face of a youth in a very black place
The athletes preparing for the race
And a boy shown running to keep the pace

The way to the mountain a wide-open place
A solitary lake on the steep hillside
An old stone arch with crumbling door
A leaded lantern fixed to the wall
Waterproof cover to watch the waters fall
A window latch in shadow against a clapboard house
A sash window set in an old brick wall
Dappled shade before the autumn fall
And a road sign showing ‘Highway 61’
Sadly for him this is ‘No Direction Home’



Poem: Richard Walker 12 Dec 2008


Note: These lines describe photographs taken as they came out from an old box file that belonged to my late son, many of the pictures taken by him, and a few of my own from my youth. An interesting miscellany of images with a few verbal twists of my own! The picture is of that actual box file although the contents have since been resorted. I guess many of us will have a box like this one and I thought it would be good to write just a line or two to represent each photo it contained.
