A contemplation of colour. This morning on Twitter I found a wonderful poem about sunset colours - this particular sunset happened to be in Bristol, UK. In the poem the sunset colours are matched with sources they could have been derived from here on earth. Let's look at some natural colour sources before enjoying the... Continue Reading →

Just a hamlet

Jane Dougherty tweeted these words as micropoetry this morning and they really struck a chord with me, and especially this part: "... all along the horizon the hills strode, ..." Here's the full text of the tweet ... It wasn’t a village, just a hamlet of five houses and two farms, a high place of... Continue Reading →

Beware the Blue Dragon

I dared to sit on this blue dragon seat and lived to tell the tale! My BLUE dragon was specially chosen for Ann Mackay (Suffolk UK, although Ann's originally from Scotland). She is the second Liebster Award nominee who's answered my questions! Ann likes blue and purple. She also mentioned a family boat trip along... Continue Reading →

I see… White

It's a long time since I've put together a colour post - my admiration for recent white posts by others has motivated me to do another.

Poetry, Photography and PIZZA

Have you been to Strasbourg? Not me unfortunately, but Damien visited recently and his photos were great...I'd love to go! Usually when I feature Damien's work, its his words and poetry but he's not one to miss a good photo op and yesterday he posted beautiful photos from his visit. Many feature buildings and architecture,... Continue Reading →

Leopards are Soft and Furry

Soft white fur and black spots, at least that's what I thought at first glance... but look closely at the spots - they're a glittering metallic blue! They remind me of polished paua shell (abalone). This leopard however hails from the UK, not from New Zealand. Meet the Leopard Moth (Zeuzera pyrina) photographed by Pete Hillman. The... Continue Reading →
