I remember when

photos were stored away

on rolls of brown film

and getting the picture

required alchemy

Magic paper

bringing scenes of colour

to life onto

white backgrounds

with square borders

Trips to the chemist

a necessity

for those precious memories

of a warm summers day

to be brought to life

computer succeeds the chemist

speeding up the process

chemical symbols changed to 0s and 1s

delivered in a day

Smile!

you’ve got more pics in your hand

more memories to store

more smiles to save

Vista

#writephoto #vista

View from the top of this very big hill

is breathtaking (literally)

some say its a bit barmy climbing up all that way

to take a picture or admire the view – but

at the end of the day – its worth it (even better with a picnic)

Frame

#Fowc #Frame

Fixed moment in time…

relayed in glass

and mounted proudly on the wall

might be an artwork, a certificate or a photo, but it’s something

everyone will enjoy looking at

Crazy Paving

#fowc #Crazy

Crazy Paving (By Inky)

Colourful trail leading up the garden path

rocky slabs laid at really strange angles

at first, you might think – some mad

zany designer had taken a hammer to your pavement, but

you would be wrong – each

piece has been placed on purpose

as you look carefully – each bit of stone comes into

view as part of the picture as a whole

in time you’ll spot a scene as the pieces come together

navigating their way down the garden, and

greeting visitors – welcome to our house!

Profile

#Fowc #Profile

Drawing of a girl from stock profile at Pholab

Positioned looking east or west, you

Really only get a portion

of the person you’re looking at

filling in the details

is down, not to art or photography, but a

little thing , the old masters called conversation

expect the character you see develop from there

Monochrome II

Ordsall Park, Salford in Monochrome (Image: Brian F Kirkham)

#Octpowrimo #Black #Cyw #Grey #Greyscale

A rainbow of colour bled dry

leaving more than fifty shades of grey

Night and day coming together

replacing colour with something a bit more definite

Life

Windows

With each new morning, and an opening of curtains

Is a brand new picture for your eyes to view

Note the trees and the flowers and

Doves and pigeons in the sky above

Of course, this isn’t a painting – it’s real life

While you are watching out of your window

Something else is taking place, right here, right now

Ballerinas

Salford 12th September 2019

Ballerinas : Painting by Inky using Painter Essentials 6


They woke up one spring morning,
at the light of the sun
Bobbing around in a gentle breeze
their dancing – just begun

Over the long grass and daisies they dropped
as their coloured dresses flipped and flopped
and as they danced round in the wind
the daisies waited for the breeze to recind

Duetting with the dandelions
as their seed just flew away
wondering who – apart from the wind
that they would like to play

Pink and purple parading in pairs
above a daisy covered shower
among the blades of fresh green grass
a wonderful coloured flower

Cees Fun Foto Challenge – Colour of Choice

12th February 2019

12th February 2019

Take your pick…colours of the rainbow await

Red, Green, Yellow, Gold and Blue (if you can get it)

no need for CD-R pens, the computer has done the marking for you

and its much neater than a scribble

so instead of you flipping the CD for a title

you know from the pic you took – its on the Disc!
