Paula has supplied some good words this month for Pick a Word
I hope I can do her words justice with my photos this month. I do so love this photo challenge. I have done a bit of cheating using one of Kimskys drawings but I did take the photo for her portfolio.
Some easy words, so Paula says, for this months Pick a Word. How would you go?
The theme for Thursdays Special from Lost in Translation: Lost in Details
Did you get lost in the details?
These words have had me thinking, which is what Paula hopes we do. I hope you enjoy my word pictures for this month.

Paula’s Traces of the Past Thursdays Special photo challenge
A couple of years ago we visited a disused coal mine in Scotland which is now the Scottish Mining Museum. The weather wasn’t all that great for taking photos but here is a few shots of the buildings and works.
Paula at Lost in Translation Thursdays Special word prompt: Saturation
The use of saturation in some photos enhances or changes the original.
Some Silky Oak flowers
A bit of saturation enhancement
It looks like the path has already been saturated
But then again, look what photo edit saturation can do
Oh yes. I can hardly wait for the start of each month when Paula pulls some fabulous words out to test our interpretation and photographic skills. There will be so many wonderful photos, just head over to Lost in Translation

The word prompt from Lost in Translation: Recycled
Many years ago, when my daughters were small, I built a playhouse for them. The playhouse is totally made from recycled building materials. Now-a-days it has my tools and other building bits and pieces, nails, screws bolts, paint, plumbing and electrical parts etc.
The door came from a Shell Service Station where I worked. When they modernised the old building, I grabbed the door to the office that has two way glass
The roof comes from the first house I built that we lived in for a few years. Here is a bit about that house.
The walls are from the Jackadgery Hall. I helped build a new extension on the Hall and these timbers are from the wall that was removed. The timber is from around 1930 or thereabouts.
The windows are from the old house also. They were bought from a bloke who saw me looking at windows in an auction place in town. He said he had some windows he had to get rid of (he carted them from Brisbane to Grafton when he moved house. His wife said he had to get rid of them lol)
The stumps the building is sitting on are from trees from my place. The wooden front step was from a mates place. He didn’t want the off cuts from his place.
That is the story of the recycled building, which has been also re-purposed.
