Cee’s B&W Challenge: Shadows


I love the way the camera has exposed the window correctly, leaving the room entirely in shadow… very dramatic! 🙂

Cee’s B&W Challenge: Shadows


Daily Prompt: Memorise

It’s funny how we often repeat little rhymes and ditties to help us remember things that we need to know. For example ‘Every Good Boy Deserves Favour’ helps me place the notes in order on an octave – EGBDF – and ‘Richard Of York Gains Battles In Vain’ reminds me of the correct order of colours of the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

And when it comes to forecasting the weather when I was a kid we used to recite ‘Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight – Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning.’ However I think probably the most useful phrase I’ve ever memorised is ‘Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey’ for when it comes to using a basic screwdriver, and remembering which way to turn the screw… But as someone who struggles with knowing my right from my left, I always have to try to remember that, too! 🙂

Share Your World: 28 August 2017

What would constitute a ‘perfect’ day for you?

Wake up naturally, with no alarm, and enjoy a leisurely cup of tea. Spend the entire warm and sunny day in and around my ideal large family home (non-existant to date, but I can dream!) with my husband and all three of my adult children and their families, cooking and eating and laughing and relaxing together… perfect! ❤

Complete this sentence: ‘My favourite place in the whole world is…’

My bed…

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

That would be Anne – we’ve been lifelong friends, our dads were at school together and we were born only six months apart 🙂

What inspired you this past week?

I’ve really been enjoying the warm weather this week, and have been getting down to grass level with my camera to take some close-up images of the wild flowers growing there…

Daily Prompt: Magnetic


Sharp city teeth-marks soothed by nature’s balm

Serrated skyline dulled by leafy shade

Erratic heartbeat slows to rhythmic calm

With healing touch of foliage arrayed

Through dappled light in tree-lined avenues

Strong branches curve in comforting embrace

Distract me from voracious high-rise views

Help soften geometric urban face

But life has taught me not to tint with rose

Bucolic rural idyll, country bliss

A childhood in the midst of nature’s throes

Reminds of many things I do not miss

Ambivalent, I yearn for peace and space

Yet this magnetic city pulls apace…
