A-Z Archive: K: Keenly Knavish

Alligator

Keen: Having a sharp cutting edge or point. Marked by intellectual quickness and acuity. Sharp. Vivid. Strong

Knave: An unprincipled crafty fellow. Deceitful and unreliable scoundrel.

Hard to find inspiration for K… while researching I did fine that in fact, in the whole of the top 1000 most commonly used words in the English language, there are only a total of 9 K words!!  No wonder…

I think he’s smiling and only he knows why!

this is exactly what I thought when I saw a group birds on a wire! Glad to see someone out there has musical talent to create this video!

the official lady danville blog

inspirational…

A musician has proven he is quite the songbird by creating a composition inspired by a feathered flock perching on some telephone wires.

Jarbas Agnelli from Brazil, 46, spotted a picture of the birds in a newspaper and noticed they were arranged like notes on a musical score.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast Day 2

13 Mar

Tuesday (Two-fer)

 “What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?”_JS

“There are as many nights as days and the one is just as long as the other in a year’s course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word “happy” would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” _CGJ 

Posted two today since they were taken minutes apart.  The great thing about sunsets, they are timeless, the untrained eye cannot determine winter spring summer or fall.

 Check back Daily..  I think I have enough for a photo each day this week!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Cabana

“Contrast is what makes photography interesting”_Conrad Hall, cinematographer. 

My favorite movies are movies that show contrast, in set design, scenery selection, screenplay dialogue, and cast. 

Lack of contrast makes a bland occasion.

 Check back Daily.. my eye tends to catch a lot of contrast so I think I have enough for a photo each day this week!!

A to Z Archive: J: J…J…J… Jackpot

Triple Jack Jackpot

Triple Jack Jackpot 

To see or win a jackpot in your dream suggests that you are too impulsive and relying too much on fate. Alternatively, the dream means that you need to take a chance in life in order to reap the rewards.  (From Dream Dictionary)

However, this photo is proof that this Jackpot wasn’t a dream… In an instant though, the both Dream Dictionary Definitions of Jackpot were spot on for me..shuffling around a bit:

 “Being impulsive I took a chance in life and as fate would have it, I reaped the rewards!” 

May you all take chances and fate back you up!

Intimate Illusion

“Love is a force more formidable than any other.  It is Invisible- it cannot be seen or measured- yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment.” _BdA

“It was the in between time, before day leaves and night comes, a time I’ve never been partial to because of the sadness that lingers in the coming and going.” _SMK

“It is impossible to walk alone at twilight and not find beauty”_MKR

After playing with these pictures they began to remind me of the old “Visit Florida” Postcards from a while back.  I wish people would send postcards more often! In our hurried current society, it is so rare to even receive a handwritten letter any more.  I think I am going to make a point to send at least one letter or postcard each week this month.  Someone has to keep the USPS in business right?  Anyone want to join me?

Gulfcoast Invite

“It is nothing but Grand, my friend, where the water meets the sand… that which makes it even better is a cold drink in hand!”_mB

“Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are Gone.”_anon

Struggled with G.  Decided to post a picture of my favorite beach in Florida along the Gulf Coast of the Panhandle.   Added some effects using Microsoft Picture Manager.  Can’t wait to get my hands on Photoshop one day! 

 

A-Z Photo Archive: F: Faithful Forever

Faithful Forever

A poem of F:  

Formidable fortress

Formerly fabricated

Fixed foundation

Firm frame

Flawless faltering

Functional freedom

Faded facade

Fostering familiarity

Fervent fidelity

Forever

There is so much behind the words that I have written here.  F proved to be the perfect letter for a poem about the structure built by hand long ago and withstanding time and all other elements. I don’t know if it would ruin the poem to explain each line… I think that it might.  But if you truly reflect on each description you’ll see what is meant and hopefully agree that F- words, aren’t always bad words.
