An ink explosion

#octpowrimo #ifiwereyou

opinion is a wonderful thing

but after you’ve vented your spleen

across two pages of finest vellum

re read, recollect your thoughts, and rewrite

for once you’ve stuck it in the envelope

and it’s journeyed to the news paper

a different edition of who you are

will be plastered over the letters page

and though you won’t see them

all eyes will turn on you

Tumbleweed

#Coloryourworld #cyw #Tumbleweed

A funny little fellow

is the humble tumbleweed

beginning life

in the wind as a seed

 

Dependable in the desert

Guaranteed to sweep up

as it travels making cameo appearances

in every good western

 

Home for the children,

who leave when the moment comes

to follow mum and dad’s footsteps

in front of the film camera

 

Brothers, sisters, cousins, all

travel through desert wind – its rise and its fall

passing through wild west towns, roadsides and rock

resting in fields, and places where animals do flock

 

And as the wind turns, there’s quite a reaction

as tumbleweed moves through the scene

at words of “light , camera, action”

the cowboy film’s fans are more than keen.

Out with the Samsung

Shots of the Mediacity & Quayside taken on a Walkabout of the Quays in Salford.  Camera used was my Samsung WB-250…the one I use as a backup for Panoramic Shots.
