The theme for July is ‘blue‘, and as always it is totally up to you how you interpret the square theme but here are Beckys suggestions for how we might stay connected on our square adventures this month.
be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising
explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious
simply be ‘Blue‘ – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise
and there is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?
Whatever you decide to do, please remember there is a rule if you want to part of the Square Gang and be sure your squares make into the gallery.
I found this little bloke when splitting the firewood. Actually I found him in the wheelbarrow as I was taking the wood inside. Yes it is a scorpion. A small Australian Native Scorpion a Rainforest Scorpion, Hormurus waigiensis I think. It is about 5cm long. Despite it’s reputation of its cousins, the Australian Scorpionaren’t poisonous (I know lets down the reputation of Australia being a deadly place lol) Even if stings do occur, these are usually just a painful irritation, because none of our known scorpions have fatal venom.
It also helped that once the tray of the wheelbarrow was blue.
There has been some suggestions for the topics to post so I am just going to go with things I enjoy photographing which I have found brings other photographers into my life who I like to refer to as my blog family. Those who comment to say what they like and offer suggestions but in all everyone is positive in their outlook, photos and friendship as well. No words of explanation as I said to a fellow blogger who said captions help, I like you to interpret my photos as you see them. Some of these have bought smiles to faces which is something I find is the reaction closest to my heart. Ready? Let’s go……….
The word prompt from the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 51: Unique
I think I’ll stick to the uniqueness of around here.
