I like patterns
you can find them all around you,
whether its in nature , or in your home furnishings
in a mural or a picture
I Volunteer at Imperial War Museum North, in Manchester, and a key place you spot patterns are in the camouflaged objects around the exhibition space
Most camouflage patterns are inspired by Nature. I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this lizard while he was standing still – out in the distance his patterned skin would have blended into the tree, as if he was part of it….Great for hide and seek.
Mother nature’s rather good with patterns as well, together with jack frost. This pic was taken in the winter season, and although it seems random, there’s a definite structure and pattern to the way the crystals of frost have formed on the car roof.

Where I’ve come with my new hobby
It was never about capturing a moment
blink at the wrong time – it was gone
hands gripped around the camera
like my life depended on it
but then with the picture
of a simple silver garden decoration
I saw something looking back at me
in a moment of wonder
I was taking a picture of something
and taking a picture of myself at the same time…
“Taking the rough with the smooth”
Raised impressions of copper coins
Out of the Aquarium, smooth glass beads fool the fish
Under the fingers, some textures provide something to hold on to
gritty sand , much like the coastal rock it came from and
Home to a variety of creatures, whose armour mirror their own.
The Sun dropped its rays over my back
casting an image of myself over the brick floor
the moment had to be preserved for posterity
so I took I picture of what Ra had painted
the image normally attached to my shoes

“Red skies at Night, Shepherds Delight…..“
This old phrase is still around today.
It was the shepherds way of telling fine weather – a red sky at night normally foretold of fine weather next morning
Whilst a red sky in the morning, normally was followed by grey clouds in the skies above. It gave the shepherd time to get his flock onto lower ground and avoid an immediate drenching 🙂
We’re not out of winter yet in the UK, no matter what the met office say, and I’ve known it snow in March, despite it being technically Spring.
A Striped Tale…..or is that a Tail ?
What’s Black and white and Red all over ? a sunburnt Zebra! (sic)
When ever I think about an animal with Stripes, I always think about two particular animals….the tiger and the zebra
The tiger is Orange and Black (or is that black and orange ?) whilst the Zebra is Black and White (or is that white and black?). Both hide in the Undergrowth for protection using this camouflage
Now while I’ve only ever seen these two animals at the Zoo, there is a stripey animal who is quite happy to be living around you and I. I am referring to your tabby variety of pussy cat
Just remember to treat it right – or its ancestral character will come right out!
The Analogue clock
It’s so simple in it’s operation
Moving seconds to minutes, and Minutes to hours
Each second passing into the annals of history

What better time to do task 23 of Challenge 30
Four o’ clock in the morning, waiting for Ra to make an appearance
having been woken up by a bout of pins and needles in my feet
Not much fun – but i’m still smiling
I’m back on school duty at the war museum this morning so after this post – i might head off for forty additional winks – sheep induced of course 🙂
“Move the Camera”
Its funny how a couple of steps, or a turn of the body can change the view of what you are capturing.
I was stood by the pontoon of the watersports centre on Salford Quays, when the Canada Geese came up the centenary walkway for their elevenses.
In they came one after the other, heading for a grassy spot by the pontoon where a water bailiff had generously left some bird food across it. They all ate like royalty, and then waddled back down the walkway to the watersports centre, where they hopped in and out of the canal basins
