Random shadows and reflections

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #235: Shadows and Reflections in Monochrome

Some of these photos you may have seen before but they were in colour. A few favourite shadow photos plus some new ones

The Frangipanni tree
the fence post
a magical cast
wonders for free

Looking ahead
seeing behind
travelling at speed
being lead

Look but seeing
thinking
puzzling
about being

Now you see
come sit
almost lunchtime
you and me

A Wagtail there
crumbs perhaps
or splash
look elsewhere

See within
reflect without
inside counts
easy win

Looking deep
no escape
spirals of reality
just sleep

Contentment lies
balance again
light and dark
truth and lies

Moored again
await adventure
reflecting
loss and pain

Put things back
together
repair
no black

Little steps
some are up
some are down
finding depths

Finding peace
and harmony
relax
thoughts cease

There’s magic
look
wonder of nature
just magic

I am sorry that this took so long for you to get through. It started and for once I let myself get carried away.
Originally there photo of the reeds was the last one then words needed photos and photos needed words. Thanks for getting this far 🤗

A wonderful light in the Pioneer Village Inverell. Looks like it has been converted to electric

Messages to inspire

Lens-Artists Challenge #234: Messages

There are messages everywhere.
Some you see,
some you don’t.
Some are big,
some are small.
Some to make you think,
some to make you smile.
Some are subtle,
some are on a wall.
There are messages everywhere.

Look

Let’s be positive

Something to ponder

The kids are in the back seat

Well played Grafton Council

Spelling helps (words in black added by my bestie and me)

More to think upon

Something we should all aspire to

A strong message

Messages can be found everywhere, if you look.

The Peewee and the tree

Franks C.P. #6: In-Camera Abstraction

I have enjoyed attempting some ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) which has been more lighting focused in the past.

Maybe this photo could be titled “Seagulls at the Waterfront” taken from a high rise overlooking Sydney Harbour

These are more like my usual nature photos with a twist, hence the title of this post. The Magpie Lark is also called a Peewee which suited my titling better than Magpie Lark and the Tree lol

Do you have any ICM to show Frank?

The decline of the glow

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Glow

A scratch
A strike
A splutter
A glow

Close now
a bit more
stand ready
feel the warmth

A touch
A splutter
A glow
A flare

Blinding
the heat
is felt
instant

A glow
A slowing
A dimming
A darkening

Feeling bathed
in light
a soft glow
warmth

A fade
A silence
A darkness
A glow
