Recycling

Wednesday 13th February

They put the bins out last night

The value of last weeks news dropped dramatically

As it waits for the refuse van

To take it to the paper mill

While bottles of plastic and glass

And tins and cans

Await their next transformation

Into the latest big thing

Reflection

A response to #Iscriblr’s Freedom of Expression challenge


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…

Challenge 30 – No. 30 – Texture

“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.

Challenge 30 – No6

A Snails eye view’

#photography #closeup #abstract

“You are a noisy mollusc….” Dougal the Dog to Brian the Snail – Magic Roundabout

This was a toughie when working on #challenge30, I mean – how do you get a snails eye view ?

You would have to be a snail wouldn’t you?

I let my imaginary snail loose around the house – where he found, in the kitchen, ready to be recycled this glass bottle – with the contents consumed it made a nice mirror for him to look in…(chortle)

Camera engaged for this one, my Sony DSC H300 – Great for close ups like this, the beading on the bottom of the glass look like beads…

Adventures in the garden

#Promptuarium #HugeCreatures

we went looking for bugs in the garden

each of us using a magnifier,

every kind of insect was spotted

varying from a caterpillar to a spotty ladybird

in fact many were interested in our

looking glass – 7 weevils in a line looked like monsters!

Broken ii

Broken

brought about by a fall from grace

refractions in the glass begin to congregate

over time they form channels which

keep on getting bigger till

eventually…there’s the sound of parting atoms … and theres

nowt left to do but to wrap up the broken bits and put them in the bin

Fragile

Fragile

For years now, people have been

ranting over the amount of packaging an item is wrapped in.

a thing they need to consider is where it’s

going to. There’s a lot of movement in a delivery van, and

if the owners don’t want their precious vases turned into a jigsaw puzzle

lifting the cargo will take a little bit of t.l,c.

equally, it will remind the removals team not to use them as a rugby ball

Lighting the dark

It glows

lighting up the darkness

for all who seek the light

colours brighten the morning sky

produced by insects that do fly

up the trees and plants around

feeding on nectar, without making a sound

to others they brighten a darkened day

but they’re happy to just fly around and play.
