A little green

This months Life in Colour: Green

Jude asked that “It’s easy to find shades of green in nature, but what else can you discover?” So my quest is to find a few things that aren’t nature. Should I struggle? What do you think? This post will be a little green.

A cart so green
with eggs so clean

Street art green
must be seen

Don’t be mean
shoot that green

Lost it’s sheen
now a green

Italian shutters green
must be seen

Art piece of choice
green or turquoise

Always seen
being green

Bye

Once a knight

Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Brandish

Here is a song that I have loved since I first heard it. An Australian group of schoolkids, King Fox, won a Battle of the Bands doing a version of this song.

OK….now onto my
Knight of the Rooves
Always there,
brandishing his fearful very spikey
whatsit
guarding the roof tops
of Paris.
Sir Tuyau de Cheminée
has many other guards
ready to go
at the first sign
of trouble.

All lined up,
their steely gaze
seems to just drift
over your head.
You decide to go
remembering what
has been said
turn to loook
one more time
One day things
will get hot
around here

Towering

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Towering Turmoil

I don’t know about the turmoil part but I sure I can get on with a bit of towering. Here’s a song to listen while having a scroll

I guess I did find a bit of towering turmoil after all. The good news is that the big Tallow Wood tree on my place is alive and standing and has new growth after the devastating fires of last year. In case you didn’t know here is a bit of what happened at Durranbah

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

Day and night

The 2020 Photo Challenge #21

This week's assignment - Use strong backlighting (i.e. shooting towards the light source, but do not look directly at the sun) to create a contre-jour image where the subject becomes a silhouette, OR shoot the light through flowers or leaves creating a transparent effect.

One for using the sun

One for using the Moon

and lets go inside too. I think black and white works better for this scene

and showing the structure of leaves
