The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Ripple
The colours of the ripples always attracts me especially when the sky is so fiery
The ripples made an interesting background
The lines of light and dark
Reflections of the boat in the ripples
The sequential patterns in the lazy ripples
Oh the colours and shapes
The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Rain
Rain in the bush
Rain in town
Rain in the city
Rain at the beach
Without the rain, we wouldn’t have rainbows
The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Walk
Why walk when you can be carried
Walking in a parade
Following your mother
Walking among the cattle
Oops….a bloke with a camera……gotta go
Look. Get my best side please
Going for a stroll down the beach
The Ragtag Daily Prompt for Monday: Quench
On a hot January day, all the blokes like to gather around and quench their thirst
Across town, everyone is keen to have a drink
In a quieter part of the country, just a couple of blokes have a quiet drink in a small place
The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Chime
I decided to chime into this conversation with a few bells that can ring in the day, or chime into your life.
When viewed from below you can see the actual chime that strikes the bell at the Grafton Cathedral.
The bell in Lismore in it’s ornate metal cage
The view from the bell tower in Split Croatia
and here is the bell
You can’t see the bell but the chimes ring out over London from Big Ben
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Costume
I have an elephant collection. Quite a number that I have stopped counting. Here are some of my elephants in a post a few years ago. Of all of the elephants in my collection, this one is the cutest don’t you think?
PS That is Humphrey in the header. He loves Christmas
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: slide
A slide of fun
The Ragtag Saturday word prompt: Fabulist
What I love about a lot of photo challenges (or writing stories, poems etc) is the words that I have never heard of that suddenly set my mind to a photo. What is a Fabulist you ask?
- a person who composes or relates fables.
- a liar, especially a person who invents elaborate, dishonest stories.
Can I have a photo that conveys a story for the word?
What? Who? Me? I’m not doing anything. I won’t eat your shrub. I am just stretching my arm. Perhaps practicing my moves for playing Double Bass in the forest orchestra. Go on Joey, you tell him, I am a good Mum.
The Ragtag Tuesday prompt: Serendipity
I have been in the right place at the right time with my camera a couple of times.
This instance, it was late afternoon and I was looking for a good place to watch the sunset at my besties old place. I looked up and there was a Regent Bowerbird unmistakable with its vivid colours. A managed a couple of quick photos before it flew off back into the rainforest. Disappointed with the quality of the photo but elated never-the-less.
This bit of serendipity was one of extreme joy. The right place and right time was sitting on my verandah having a cup of coffee. There in the Tea Tree sat a bird that is Critically Endangered, a Regent Honeyeater. The estimated know population is between 800 and 2000 birds. I was so happy to see this young male at my place for a few minutes
The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Ring
I was wondering what to do for this word prompt. I guess there will be lots of rings on fingers but you know me, always on the lookout for something different. I had a look through my folder for a Fairy Ring, no luck. I must have something. We went into a plumbing supplies as my bestie is remodeling her house. Ah yes. Look what I found – rings
Lovely shiny chrome ring
Now this is the future of showers
And how could I go past our Moon with a wonderful ring on a cloudy night
