Saint Augustine (354 AD – 430 AD)

I made this card to try and teach myself the importance of patience – LoL! Although it’s a fine line between patience and being resigned to a situation that may need activity.

I took this photo in Instow, North Devon (England)

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
