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.
I have a few photos of boats but this sailing boat in Genoa was the best for docked
Linkage had to be a chain and a rusty one is even better
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
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
A rural skyline
Debbies One Word Sunday: Skyline
A rural skyline deserves a bit of a country feel song
A hunt for red
Patti from the Lens-Artists sent us on a scavenger hunt to hunt for things that are Red
I had to go to town yesterday so I set out to find a few things from around town instead of my usual combing my place for bits of red among the nature that abounds here at times.
Here is what I found
A red post and a fortuitous red car driving pst
A red motorbike at a service station with bits of red everywhere
A red ute livening up the street
I just happened to be near the Fire Station when the truck came out of the station
OK I did lie. I had to include the miniature red Hibiscus in my garden that are just flowering as there has been good rainfall over the past two weeks
This is the way to go
The word prompt from the Lens-Artists: Weathered or Worn
Just at the top of my street is an old town distance post. In the horse and buggy days, this part of the road was the way to get from Grafton to Glen Innes. The initials of the towns have long faded as has the distance numbers. If there is a bush fire in the area, this is old wooden post is one of the things that I try to keep safe.
The word prompt from Lens-artists: Shadows
Another Moon Shadow
Abstract – Images from my lens
The word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract
I love this theme. I often think of photography as art as well as capturing life in the moment. I have quite a number of photos that I have deliberately taken in a folder called “Arty Ones”
All of these photos are what I saw with my minds eye. None have been altered or enhanced. Many involve shadows or water as they can provides many abstract images. I hope you enjoy my Abstract images.
Walking on the rocks
The Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly in the garden
The shape hidden in the banner
Dancing on the leaf
Patterns and reflections
Shadow on the post
Liquid flowing glistening solid
Brian Eno’s music can be abstract. This track Reflections suits what I try to do
Reflection on the Floor
The word prompt from Nancy: Reflection
So many photos with a reflection from glass or water but this time something different
The reflection from the stained glass windows onto the polished floor of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
The wonderful colours that showered the building from the windows, fell onto the floor
The reds that flowed into greens
and turned again with yellow highlights
This Is My Post
This is a tale of a fence post, a Spangled Drongo and a Noisy Friarbird – as told by the Spangled Drongo.
What started out as a normal day, you know, a bit of flying about, some singing with my mates and looking for insects and other snacks around the place.
I always drop onto this fence post nearly every day. It’s a great perch to see if any insects or bugs are moving about in the garden or on the grass.
As you can see, This is My Post.
A mate was flying past and he said “Hey, can I come for a visit to your post”
Sure, but I don’t really like anyone sitting up here on my post.
Oh, that’s OK. I’ll just hang on this side if that’s alright with you.
And then, out of the blue, this big ugly bloke decides to sit on MY post. Oi, you. Get off my post
Yeah. Right. get down there. This is my post.
Suddenly, he looks at me and of all things, he pokes his tongue out.
Well, that’s not on. You better get off now.
Oh I see. You want to make a bit of a do about sitting on my post do you?
Cop that buddy. Just get away.
No you don’t. You can’t get back on there. This is my post.
OK you. I don’t want to sit on the ground. I am a bird who likes to sit on posts.
Well I am really afraid buddy. This is MY post
I better be off then. I don’t want to sit on the ground and argue with you and your stupid post. I’m going, see ya.
I’ve had enough of hanging around here. I going as well. I will be back later and sit there. Because, This is My Post
