Books

Another multiple photo challenge on books.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books and Paper
Sheryl’s Daily Word Prompt: Research
The Weekly Word Prompt: Evaluate

I often sit after taking some photos of my world , looking at the image on my computer screen and wonder what is that? What type of insect, butterfly, dragonfly, bird, or flower is that on my screen. Sometimes I may delve into a search engine to discover something but more often than not, its the books that help me evaluate and discover what I have photographed.

Here is a few of the books I have on the desk beside my computer which I flick through to find a name that I can out onto my photos for everyone to enjoy when I post them.

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 3 – Nanushka

Thanks to Prior from Priorhouse Blog for nominating me to try out this challenge.

This is for all the bloggers who are all around the world and come into my world as I go into theirs.

“. . and if our lives
should never quite entwine –
our friendship
lights my understanding
of your world,
and sheds a gentle lustre
upon mine. . .”

Nanushka came into my life from my Mother. She saw Nanushka, whose real name is Nan Whitcomb, on TV and knowing my love of poetry gave me a book, The Thoughts of Nanushka one Christmas. I now have 4 volumes of Nan’s poetry which inspire me in my life and remind me of my parents. Now I enjoy sharing her poetry with others. The way I write poems is based on the way she writes poetry I guess.
