Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Starburst
Lens-Artists Challenge #177: Celebrating
Let’s get the celebrations started
Grab your sunnies
Make sure the decorations are up
What’s a celebration without bubbles
Everyone is here and are already having a good time
OK time to light the cake
Looks like the celebration is almost over
Look, there’s the fireworks so must be almost time to go home
There will always be a few leftovers in the morning
and a bit of deflation
Look like this bloke missed out again
We were there
it was a party
a street party
The whole town
Shows appeared dazzling
inside large tents
outside in the park
people wander entertained
There’s a boom
in the sky
colours and noise
the whole town
a street party
it was a party
We were there.
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Emotion
Can you find your emotion among this lot? No responsibility taken for any mental scaring, they are your emotions. Perhaps I can facilitate some change. Try and stop for a while and appreciate the colours or patterns of the photo that builds a flight response or just stop on the photo that makes you go aahhh and soak up the emotion
I’ll come to your emotional rescue
It’s time for another month of Becky’s Square Photo Challenge. This month is a bit easier as it is all about Past Squares
Here are the requirements from our Becky.
“Remember you don’t have to share square daily; your squares can appear once a week or just once. It is totally up to you. As is the content of your squares. Here’s a reminder of what your October Square(s) could cover;
- Re-post a previous square post which at the time didn’t get the attention it deserved
- Share one or more leftover squares from a previous theme that you loved
- Share a new photograph that would have been perfect for a previous theme
- Or if you have not been squaring for very long why not pick a theme you missed and share thirty one squares of that theme
- Alternatively have fun with the word ‘past’ by sharing squares of history and heritage, and that includes past holidays!
The tag is PastSquares but the only thing you need to remember is that in October your images must be square – that’s four equal sides!”
I almost forgot my song for the challenge as I always enjoy doing. Hope you enjoy this song
I was unsure what to start with. Maybe my first Square photo in a square challenge?
Or should I start with a bright square bang?
Enjoy a month of past squares, I know I will
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Coat of Many Colours
Not many coats here but at least it’s colourful
Life in Colour August: Red
This is my look at photos from the first “red” (it took a while to work out the easiest way to search for an image – duh!) to the last one posted probably last week, as it’s the end of the month already. My way of saying goodbye to red and hello to ????
The first RED – a Red-necked Wallaby and Joey in March 2012 in my messy looking front yard
March 2012 – RED fungi make an appearance
September 2013 – RED-browed Firetail Finch dropped in for a bath
January 2014 – A random RED flower
February 2015 – A wonderful scented RED Rose
August 2016 – A favourite RED Skimmer Dragonfly photo
March 2017 – lot’s of RED-necked Wallaby photos to choose from
July 2017 – RED Skimmer Dragonflies were keeping an eye on me too
January 2018 – My computer time was interrupted by a RED insect walking across my desk. Assassin Bugs are so cool; see the red hook in the front, they use that to hold their lunch and quietly munch away. Also comes with spiky defenses and camouflage of sort. Size – around 10-30mm If unfortunately stung just a bit of localised pain that doesn’t last long. Remember never poke the insect
November 2018 – One of my favourite RED Dahlia photos
August 2019 – I love RED and yellow Torch Ginger Flowers. They are a haven for small insects.
July 2019 – I love my wheelbarrows filled with RED Hippeastrums
November 2019 – I am getting cuttings of this RED Frangipanni.
November 2019 – This reminds me. It’ll be soon time for Becky’s next #square photo challenge – 33 days. This one was from a Blue or was it RED square photo challenge? This also works for the next Square photo challenge in “October – is going to be a month of Past Squares. A month to share memories, personal favourites, leftover squares and also have fun with themes you have always wanted to try.”
December 2019 – RED Christmas fireworks
June 2020 – another new visitor to the garden in the six months after that fire. The bush was recovering and just around my house was a garden and sanctuary, so the small birds I used to see in the bush but not around the house came around more often like this little RED-backed Wren
September 2020 – A good year for the Zygote Cactus to show their RED flower
April 2021 – the end of a particularly warm Autumn day…
….and this final RED adventure. The Header from April 2021 – RED Callistemon (Bottlebrush) and a Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly
Becky’s Bright Squares
Becky’s Bright Squares
A chance to combine two photo challenges.
What can be more colourful and take you into a fantasy world than the Lismore Lantern Parade.
The lanterns come by eliciting ohhhhs and ahhhs from the crowd.
and what a better way to end a parade than fireworks!!
