The Lookout

Salford 11th January 2019

The street looks empty

as the curtains opened

to another day

But up in the tree

opposite the house, someone

feathered is watching

Keeping an eye out

for the dropping of breadcrumbs

In a neighbours backyard

Plain sight

#octpowrimo #hidden #dragons

the mighty dragons didn’t disappear,

reality is…they took a different form

each knight giving up their quest of vanquish as

every dragon decided to rest among the greens

Seen hiding in the forests, or swimming in the depths

Light green moments

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Toy Story

#Toystory #Memories #Childhood

Salford 6th September

I can see them now

scattered around on the floor

those little bricks that stuck together

some square – some rectangles

some red, some yellow, some blue, some green

we made trees and houses

for the little lego people

that rode around in the cars

on the stubbily green grass outside the house

we’d just built

Geometry.

Close up of a gate at Ordsall Park in Salford – I like the shapes!

The Gates were installed as a “New” entrance to the park

Trees in a Line

Core

Core

Central to most trees fruit

Oranges pears apples or bananas

real safe centres … some soft some hard.  Most

Edible, but the centre and their pips are quite woody

Salford, 10th May 2018

With the appearence of what seemed to be the slight raise in the mercury, i decided to walk down toward the local park and take a couple of snaps with my trusty Nikon D3100

Spot to Rest

Nest

Nest

Near to the top of the tree

eggs are sitting in their little bed of twigs

safely in a huddle until

the time arises to hatch – with a little help from mum and dad
