Abandoned

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone

In the corner.
Pushed out of the way.
Not needed
in the Art Gallery…….
just now.
Glass gleaming
Waiting to be filled
with treasures,
trinkets,
artifacts,
some ancient,
some new.
Alone in the corner.
But perhaps
not abandoned

For the letter Q photo challenge, I think a slideshow of the Square-tailed Kites that nest in a tree across the road from my place.

Thursdays Special: Tradition

At this time of year tradition appears everywhere. In shops, in the streets, houses being lit up with Christmas lights and inside the homes decorations appear.

Here is a bit of my Christmas tradition.

The “tree” goes up and gets decorated.
