Thoughts

Clouds, Poetry, Weather

#Thoughts #Bubbles #Marshmallows #Clouds

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’

Singing in the rain

Clouds, Poetry, Weather

#In light of the lack of a fresh writing prompt – i’ve poached this one from the wordpress e-book – 365 Writing prompts….enjoy….inky.#

Salford 16th June 2018

Inclement is how the weathermen would have put it

the weather itself couldn’t make its mind up

the sun was out – the birds were tweeting – and everyone was content

that was of course till two sets of clouds collided into one another

and slowly, but surely, small waterdrops began to fall from the sky

pitter pattering into puddles – easily covered by peoples umbrellas

until the raindrops sped up – and turned into stairrods

filling up birdbaths and heading for waterways

the quickest way they could

ladies and gents diving for cover under the nearest shelter

till quick as it arrived – the stairrods departed

and cotton-wool clouds replaced the grey ones

while birds enjoyed the relax

in a pool provided by the cloud

Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

Pics from the portacabin

Brain & Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC), Salford, UK

31st March 2017

Today was the first session of BASICs photography sessions in our new home.

We’ve upped sticks from the side room used for Memory workshop and have set up in the portacabin which was once used by the art group, next to the enchanted garden.

Preparations began last week, as we cleared out some of the tables and surplus and set up a studio area

Moving to the portacabin has allowed us a little bit more space to store equipment, and provided us with a dedicated space for our studio shots.  in the summer when the garden is in bloom – it will give us access to the trees and the flowers growing there.
