Tribal

#Fowc #Football #Soccer #Rugby

Two crowds sit on their

Respective rumps, cheering on the warriors

In their tribes colours Red or Blue

By the end of the first act

A tribe at one end of the ground is jubilant

Leaping in the air – whilst the other isn’t so happy

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

Never without

Manchester 28th August

#promptuarium

Sat on a midsummers afternoon

Covered in the colours of his sports team round his neck

A regular of the local rugby team

Resplendent in his club colours

Following his team, which ever stadium they go to

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

Cities

In the city

City

A tale of the city I live in…enjoy

It started as an outpost

a place so far from Rome

people soon put down roots

and began to call it home

 

Waters ran from rivers to well

and before the flush toilet – O what a smell!

Horse and Cart instead of the car

brought goods round from near and far

 

Inventors improved things – bringing light to the night

burning a gas that burned bright white

Theories exchanged – via great schools of thought

as on the dockside , commodities were bought

 

But as things changed – so did life

Entertainment phased out trouble and strife

Theatres and Football if you were in to sport

as visitors came visiting this brand new port

 

Museum’s taught the tales of the place

and seeing the objects – they thought they were ace

learning about engines, tractors and trains

that went over rails crossing valleys and plains

 

But still city grows as the minute hand moves

as new companies settle and start a new groove

As water still passes down canal it does go

passengers visit on boats as it flows.
