Aquamarine

Poetry

4th June 2019

Some say its blue,

Some say its green

Whilst some say it’s some place in between

Colour that appears

on a sunny, sandy beach

Where it laps on the sand so you know it’s in reach

And held in a stone – you’ll find it in rings

Strange are the reaction from recipient it brings

circled by diamonds – the prettiest of things

Its supposed to symbolise courage

this bright coloured birthstone for march

hiding in mines down below – the ones with a very big arch.

The wheels turned

Food, Industrial, Life, Poetry

Inky’s thoughts on the waterwheel

Watching the water

turning the wheel

that moved the gears

that moved the cogs

which turned the stones

that milled the grain

to make the flour

that went into the bread

sold in the shops

the very next morning

Photography @ BASIC Ed2

Learning, Photography

With my new camera acquired the other day , I took it along to BASICs Camera class where we had a session of picture taking out in BASICs Garden – “The Enchanted Garden”

The Aim was to find some abstract art in and around the garden – whether it be in the plants, the trees, the flowers or even in the buildings that made up the garden

My favourite pic this session?  The Path of Leaves!

Really enjoyed this session as I get to grips with my new camera.

No Session next week – but i’ll still be busy – as I look for five things to capture

Something Red, A Portrait, Water, A Reflection, and an Old Building

and as a bonus challenge – I’ve got to do a compilation of all five items
