There is nothing better than viewing the world through the eyes of children, so a trip to a Children’s Zoo was a pleasure. Of all the animals and birds that we saw these little chaps were the firm favourite!
And as you can see (top right) one of the little kids was definitely ‘on top’ of the world!
The waiting room at the dental surgery is somewhere I reflect at least 4 times a year. Whether there for a ‘check-up’ or visit to the hygienist I often reflect on how I’ve actually been brave enough to come. Memories of dentistry in my early life are not for this post, but they weren’t pleasant. The surgery is housed in a building with many of the original Edwardian features still intact. A recent visit revealed a change-around of furniture and, as I was called quickly for my appointment, this was the only reflection apparent during that time.
One of its ‘companion’ windows, showing bluebirds, is here. Full details of the challenge can be found here, and another will appear on Just Snaps shortly.
This is not the most original of interpretations, but this picture has been waiting in its album for an outing. So here it is.
Every now and then we park outside this shop on our way home from a visit. It is always empty – apart from the occasional girl sitting behind the till and communicating on her mobile. She was missing when I took this picture. I like the pink chair, though. But I bet it’s uncomfortable ;)
Full details of the challenge, and many more entries, can be found here.Just Snaps is up an running – with a similar not very original interpretation, but a shot that is no longer available…. and something that is a little obscure as well! There are also a few below
Today is the first day of the Be Creative Weekend. Everyone is invited to join – the emphasis is on creativity – and the only ‘obligation’ is to do something for 15 minutes. There is a facebook group, and there are prompts to help if no inspiration is handy. So far I haven’t used any of the prompts – but I have been creative, here’s a picture of something I’ve done
A collection of threads nestling in dyes. Does it qualify? Well, it’s two sets of threes – but the real reason I’ve included it is that each pot contains three different colours! So it’s actually six threes!
These might look like scraps of just any old fabric. They are, however, silk pieces reclaimed from a damaged antique kimono. Some of you have seen them elsewhere, but they were loving pieced and patched to make a book cover for a dear friend. Hopefully my ‘found’ treasure will now be ‘treasured’ by my friend.
Coincidence? Well, whether it is or not the title fits perfectly with a creative endeavour that is happening this weekend. I wrote about it earlier and anyone is welcome to join in there too.
During the recent stormy weather I have been documenting certain views. These have mostly been to record the rise and fall of the water. The one I have chosen to show you today is quite difficult to capture as, for most of the day at this time of year, the sun is too low for a good shot. I have taken to hiding in the shadow of a tree so that I can fool the camera. On this particular day I wasn’t the only one behind a tree. The cyclists emerged just as I pressed the trigger!
I hope that at least some of you will choose to be creative with us over the weekend. This is a monthly ‘happening’. Full details of the Weekly Photo Challenge can be found here and one from Just Snaps is here..
