Regular readers of my blog will know of my great love of photography, especially when covering nature and the animal world. So when I saw The Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019 I just had to include it here. If you want to see full quotes and the relevant award winners from the photographs below, please click on The Guardian’s feature here. Please feel free to let me know which is your favourite.

Line(s) of the Day #AllIsFullOfLove
Twist your head around
It’s all around you
All is full of love
Taken from the song All is Full of Love by Icelandic artist Björk, from her third studio album Homogenic (1997). As well as an incredibly beautiful song, it also features one of the greatest music videos ever made, which I talked about here. You’re welcome to watch it here or share your favourite music video.
Line(s) of the Day #AllMyFriends
And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay
Taken from the song All My Friends by New York band LCD Soundsystem from their second studio album Sounds of Silver (2007). I really do love this song and featured it back in my post of Awesome Songs of Over 7 Minutes.

Line(s) of the Day #StanandOllie
When you watch our movies, it was just the two of us. All we had was each other.
Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan) in the delightful Stan and Ollie (2018), which tells of the duo’s attempts to make a comeback years after their Hollywood heyday and the tension that resurfaces as they start performing again. You can find other quotes from the film here.
Gr8at: Canary Wharf Winter Lights Bonus
Before the exhibition finished, I was able to see the visual delights that were the Winter Lights at Canary Wharf, a free annual festival that celebrates light, colour and movement.
Click below for a bonus eight photographs. You can see my posts covering the exhibition last year here and here.
