Have a listen to a bit of Aussie music while you have a read
Inspiration. What inspires me? Who inspires me? The list of bloggers who inspire is far to long to list and I am afraid I would leave someone out which would be unforgivable. Probably if you are reading this YOU are an inspiration either with your wonderful photos (whose ideas I might steal every now and then) or incredible your poetry and words.
With what I do in the shed, my inspiration has to be my Grandfathers and Father who gave me the innate skills to use tools
This is the first shed I built to do stuff in.
Music has always been part of my life inspired by my Mother who played piano and encouraged me to pick up a guitar. I have lots of music and mostly always have music playing.
A few of my CD’s
Me in the foreground playing with my mate Steve at a dance I think
I still have that guitar in the above photo
Probably my early life in Scouts gave me a love of the Australian bush and our environment. I became part of the solution and still do my part to try and make our world a better place. Landcare is a wonderful way to help others.
An Australian poet Nan Whitcomb who wrote The Thoughts of Nanushka, inspired my poetry. My Mum saw her on TV and told me about her while shelling the peas in the kitchen when I got home from work.
I am glad that Ann-Christine has prompted Paula to get back into the Pick a Word Challenge which is one of my favourite photo challenges. So let’s get started with this Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #112 Pick-a-Word
Here are the five words selected and my interpretation of the word prompts
Sorry for the haphazard photos. Yes the block editor has me going grrrr……Adding multiple photos as individual photos will be the end of especially when it comes to my mo9nthly wrap-up. Oh well it will get easier and I will persevere. I might try to add a song
Where to begin. Do I have more than one pastime? That is an easy one to answer, yes.
Did you know I like to photograph nature? Pop “nature” into the search box on my page and maybe you’ll find a few pictures.
Did you know I like to get into the garden? Try garden and see what comes up.
Did you know I enjoy travelling? Travel in the search box may surprise.
Did you know I like cooking? If you search recipe, try one of mine.
Besides all of these, I really enjoy music. As a lot of my posts contain a song which I think is relevant to the theme of the post, a song could be included. A search will bring up too many posts to even think about. I listen to music while writing, cooking or mucking about with my photos. This is playing now
Here is few photos of my music gleaned from older posts
A few of my CD’s
Part of my vinyl collection – 45’s and LP’s
Lots of music magazines
as well as books
Yes I play guitar
One of my first guitars I bought with the money I earned working in a factory while still at school
The last guitar I bought
Well there you go. That’s a bit about me and my pastimes
