In a quieter part of the country, just a couple of blokes have a quiet drink in a small place

The Bells

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.

Dressing up

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?

Who? Me?

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?

adjective:
noun
plural: fabulists

  1. a person who composes or relates fables.
  2. 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.

Serendipity

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

Ring

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
