Lost in Translation’s Pick a Word – March 2022

Paula’s words for March may be a little difficult to convert to photos so a bit of thinking will be required.

ASPEROUS The rough bark of an Ironbark tree

CRUSTACEOUSSoldier Crabs scuttling along the beach at low tide

EFFUSIVEA Noisy Friarbird singing his heart out in the morning

MOUNTEDOne of my quests is to photograph birds riding cows or horses. Willie Wagtail enjoying the backward view

TRIADThree Grey-crowned Babblers walking along the forest floor flicking over leaves and sticks looking for insects, all the while chattering away to each other

OK that was a bit of a search to find photos as close to Paula’s words as I could

Pick a Word – September 2021

Lost in Translation – Thursdays Special – Pick a Word September 2021

Paulas words made me think for a while. This morning the Female Satin Bowerbirds came into the garden looking for a bit of nectar from the Yamba Sunshine Grevillea which was fortuitous for reachable.

REACHABLE

I have a few photos of boats but this sailing boat in Genoa was the best for docked

DOCKED

Linkage had to be a chain and a rusty one is even better

LINKAGE

I couldn’t find anything straight away and then I remembered the horses who had a short disagreement. I don’t know what infuriated one of them

INFURIATED

Last week on a walk in the park prior to another lockdown at my besties area, I found a hat on a post and thought “that may come in handy” and here is a post behatted

Lost in Translation Thursdays Special: Pick a Word 2021

I wait every month for Paula to post her words for the month and try to find just the right image to match her words. Here are this months words and photos.

Something to listen to while contemplating if my photos match Paulas words.

Pick a Word – May 2021

Paula’s Thursday Special: Pick a Word May 2021

Here we are in May already and some words that I may struggle with this month. A bit of lateral thinking may be needed. I don’t really have any alpine photos so a photo of Cradle Mountain in Tasmania with a bit of leftover snow will have to do. If you are wondering about the Teddy Bear in the cage, that was part of a silent protest against the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention camps,

Pick a Word – April 2021

Lost in Translation’s Pick a Word: April 2021

Paula’s words for us to match an image are –

FURRY

A furry donkey says hello


PICTURESQUE

My favourite spot to sit in the mountains near my place


RAPID

It’s hard to capture the beating wings of an Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly as they are rarely still, even when having a drink


SUBTERRANEAN

Beneath the Arena di Verona


APOCALYPTIC

My favourite spot on my place after the devastating fires of December 2019. This waterhole never dries and is a haven for birds and animals. A big job to clear the fallen trees. I went there yesterday and the bush around is recovering and there were so many birds but the tangle of trees still remains.
