Square Sky for December – The others

Only having one photo a day for the challenge meant that some other photos didn’t quite make the cut to be in the top thirty-one #SquareSky photos for December.

Here are the ones who didn’t quite get selected in a slideshow

Return to port

I don’t usually do double photo challenges but looking a photo for for Cees Black and White Photo Challenge: Water and then the idea for Colours that Start With the Letter S  came along, which just started words tumbling from my mind.

Upon a silver sea
the fishers return.
A hold full of fish
economic return.
At the dock
the buyers return.
Their partners and children
await their return.
Once unloaded and refreshed
to the sea again they return.

The Birds and Bee

While I was out looking for the last Square Sky photo, a flock of Rainbow Lorikeets zoomed across a leaden sky. Point and shoot before they disappeared behind the trees.

May I present the result of a no look photograph.

I call this Two Birds and a Bee
