Salford, 13th March

An acrostic on WiFi technology in response to fandangos one word challenge

Wireless….

It’s like your stereo, but it’s much more

Fun….particularly if you like gaming

It allows you to move around with your devices

World Wide Web

In the palm of your hands

For the time you need

Instant information

Wondering around

In the great outdoors, whilst

Following the goings on at home on

Instagram, Facebook, and twitter

Where would we be without this technology?

Internet and telephone

Fixed into the wall….dial up networks ?

It’s not fun at all…you’re waiting forever to connect

Challenge 30 – no 5

“Abstract ”

#abstract #art #technology

Creating summat out of the ordinary from something ordinary

Created from my computer, watch and android phone

And captured and “mucked around with ” by my ipad

If I were to give this piece a title, I’d call it “watching over obsolescence”

Challenge 30 – No3

Something in Colour and Black and white

Something B&W and in Colour….

Two things, my England Barbarians Top and My Imperial War Museum Fleece

The BaBa Rugby Shirt is Black and White, Whilst my Museum Fleece has had all the colour drained from it – it would be brilliant red if this were colour….

Both taken using Black and White Monochrome mode with my Trusty old Nikon Camera with 50mm lens

Looking : A Found Poem

#Love #Romance #Poetry

Salford 14th January 2019

another found poem by me via Spike Milligans Box 18

I’ve stopped looking for that diamond

that brightens up my day

the beauty of your eyes

still capture me in the evening light

as we pass each other by

and memories of walking through the daisy patch

still return – fresh in the mind

In their finest

Salford, 9th January 2019

On a Sunday morning,

In the bright sunshine

You’ll see them all

In their finest

Taking a walk

With husband or wife

Along with the children,

Escaping the strife

No work for the blacksmith

The shops are all closed

They’ve all been to church

So a walk is proposed

And while making their way

To the local town fair

Some humbugs and sweets

The family will share

As mum and dad rest

In their boaters and hats

The children play games

With the balls and their bats

Hive of activity

Salford, 1st January 2019

#newyear

Since the bells chimed at twelve

Dads been keeping a closely guarded secret

It’s been cooking slowly in the oven

While side dishes bubble away on the hob

Table set, in all its finery

Just waiting for the star attraction

To make its grand appearance

Blue green

Waterfalls and Closeups

#coloryourworld #cyw #bluegreen

A piece for colour your world also about the painting of a waterfall

The painter played with his shades

capturing land and sky

luscious fields of green

meeting up with shades of blue

and as field and sky met Together

at horizon, they converged

forming new colour round middle

Where land and sky they merged

Weathered

Another poem by inky

Salford (via Llandudno) , 11th January 2018

Weathered

I like the pebble beach at Llandudno.

each of those stones, has their own tale to tell

time taken over millions of years to form,

then broken up and shaped over another stretch of time

to create the many shapes that come together as a flat bed by the Irish Sea

great for skimming on the surface – if you can find just the right round ones

some of the cast are smooth to the touch and shiny as a button

but a word of caution – wear your shoes – some of these are sharp!

Ode to a ham

Newbold Verdon, 25th december

The Ham, Mentioned in the verse.

While the children played their games

Under the gaze of the decorated Christmas tree

You sat bathing in a sugary herbal bath

Turning like cleopatra

As you cooked away in the oranges, spices and cloves

Sending sumptuous smells through the house

Till it was time for you to join the vegetables

To the sound of the chef in the kitchen

“Luncheon is served”
