Movie Title Challenge SOCS

#Socs #Overtheedge

It’s not easy being a marble

they may say you’re made of hard stuff

but you still have a glass heart

and with artistic colours running through you

you can be a sensitive soul

cobbled together with your mates

as each players dobber tries to smash you

out of the safety of the chalk circle drawn on the tarmac

and gravity can be your worst nightmare

as you balance and wobble

on the un even surface

Delta

Salford 3rd March

The engineers who design the roads

have really outdone themselves this time

in the middle of the road, the raindrops fall,

nestling in sunken tarmac pools – they look like a map of

great lakes….

Great Manchester Run

Old Trafford, Manchester , 20th May 2018

Stood on the corner

at a moments attention

looking on as the club i volunteer with

engaged in a mighty test of endurance in the northwest sun

Heat making everyone sweat

as feet hit the tarmac of Manchesters roads

rooting them on, the hardy bunch of volunteers

ready to applaud and guide them toward their rewards

it might not be cash – but that medals more than gold

even taking in its colour – as every year the

roads of Manchester take a pounding

Back of a Leaf

A Simple leaf , on the tarmac and gravel of the car park of #BASIC, the brain and spinal injury centre in Salford.

Fallen by the wind, or the passing of time with the coming of autumn, this humble leaf gave me another chance to create something special.

Been messing around with the monochrome as i continue in the quest to master my new camera.  i like this image because of the silvery veins came popping out – all from the press of a button of my new camera.
