It’s very close and scary

Jude’s 2020Photo Challenge #38: What’s the POV

This post contains a close up of a spider so if you have any phobias, please close this post to exit and seek help or listen to a bit of music to relax you if you would absolutely dare to go further!

This week's assignment - Shoot your subject from below. Looking up will give the illusion of smallness (the viewer). An upwards angle will make the subject seem much more important.

Thank you brave soul who has ventured into bushboys world. I found this HARMLESS Huntsman Spider in the wood pile. They don’t have webs and rely on their lightning speed to catch their prey. Huntsman Spiders can run at sixteen of their body lengths a second and that’s the slowest one of the 95 Huntsman species found in Australia.

’tis early

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Early

A song to listen while reading. It is the early song from my early life

Awaken
my love
the sun has
tried to
break through.
The distance
shrouded
trees appear
await
bird song.
I am
the mist
ready
to envelop
your senses.
Awaken
my love
love
has broken
through.
The mist
has risen
my body
awaits
gentle touch.
Awaken
my love
’tis early.

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Awaken

Making faces

The Weekend Challenge: The Face

So many
objects
have a face.
Do you
see them
walking
through the shops.
I do
they are
making faces
they are there
inanimate faces
they are always looking
waiting
for you
making faces.

I’m going to Su’s

Time to get ready for Su’s virtual afternoon tea

I shall add my bit from Australia for Su as she said “As it’s te wiki o te reo Māori (Māori language week) in Aotearoa New Zealand, I’m challenging myself to improve my te reo (language) skills wherever I can.”

Kia ora
“Whatever we call it though, there is ti in the pot; te mīhini kawhe (the coffee machine) is at the ready and although the kai (food) is simple, there’s plenty to fill your puku (stomach).”

Here is my contribution – I have used te mīhini kawhe and made a cup and also have mongamonga keke

So haere mai ki te hono atu ki a Su me etahi atu. Nau mai te katoa. So come along and join Su and everyone else. Everyone is welcome

Get through

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.”
– Paulo Coelho
