Horizon II

Poetry

#Fowc #Horizon #HorizonII

A shot of Duxford Airfield, Taken by Inky, for the planes taking off and the clouds in the horizon

Half way tween the earth and the sky

On which the sun exchanges places with the moon

Reality is although you can see it

In your eye line – you’ll find it impossible to reach

Zero degrees – and its all so far away

On the occasion you’ve reached your destination –

Next thing you see – is that place you want to be

“Move the Camera”

Looking One Way….


And then the other

Its funny how a couple of steps, or a turn of the body can change the view of what you are capturing.

I was stood by the pontoon of the watersports centre on Salford Quays, when the Canada Geese came up the centenary walkway for their elevenses.

In they came one after the other, heading for a grassy spot by the pontoon where a water bailiff had generously left some bird food across it. They all ate like royalty, and then waddled back down the walkway to the watersports centre, where they hopped in and out of the canal basins

A Snails eye view’

#photography #closeup #abstract

“You are a noisy mollusc….” Dougal the Dog to Brian the Snail – Magic Roundabout

This was a toughie when working on #challenge30, I mean – how do you get a snails eye view ?

You would have to be a snail wouldn’t you?

I let my imaginary snail loose around the house – where he found, in the kitchen, ready to be recycled this glass bottle – with the contents consumed it made a nice mirror for him to look in…(chortle)

Camera engaged for this one, my Sony DSC H300 – Great for close ups like this, the beading on the bottom of the glass look like beads…

Pea Soup

Weather, Winter

10th January 2019

I could say mother natures been cooking,

but she’s obscured my view

I can barely see, what’s in front of me

never mind a metre or two

And the pea soup – its a moving

as it follows the warmth of the ground

its making pretty whirls and swirls

as it moves around

And its not easy when your commuting

from museum to back to home

as the fog falls on down, it makes you frown

as you might just be looking through foam!

Favorite Place

salford quays, March 23rd

Sat on a bench by the Manchester ship canal,

just watching the water go by

and letting the lemon cake I’ve just munched on digest

as the feathered residents of the quays go by

dont think they know much about their famous neighbours

but it’s relaxing watching them travel through the water

Salford, 7th March 2017

Cerulean (2)

The drawing originated from the last family holiday we had in Oludeniz, in Turkey.

I took my notepad and pencils with me to do some scribbling when i got bored of taking camera shots with my Samsung web camera.

Just by the complex we were staying in were the remains of some roman buildings.  The temple part remained intact in the centre of the city, but i was given the opportunity to take a drawing of the ruins nearby…a path between the complex and the beach ran right past the ruin.

so, i found the perfect place to sit…someplace i could see the plants, the sea and the stonework, and started drawing.

and whilst drawing, I drew quite a crowd…even if it was the lizards who lived around the Roman Ruins.

Upon landing back home at Manchester Airport….I picked up my watercolor pad and drew a copy of the scribbled drawing from my notepad

I used vermillion and burnt umber for the far away stones, and yellow ochre for the bricks nearest to me.  To create the bushes on the path, i used sep green, and the centre of the painting was filled in with shades of cerelean blue.
