There’s still life in the dishwasher!

Each time I open the dishwasher I find at least one still life arrangement staring back at me!  I’m sure its because I see patterns all around me  –  that’s how I am!  Maybe still life pictures are not as popular as was once the case but in the next two posts I shall be offering a pair each day.

A few more birds

The dunnock and the robin are among our most common and friendly garden birds.  Both are small and the robin is noticeably much smaller than his American cousin.

In the sheep field are the larger birds; the jackdaws, a kestrel, a red legged partridge and a magpie.  They are less keen on the camera’s presence and it will be obvious from the quality that these pictures were taken from some distance.  Indeed, the kestrel was perched on a tree guard more than 100 yards away.

The jackdaws, who regularly visit in groups of 6 – 10 at this time, are gathering dried grass for nesting.

 

The red legged partridge came to the edge of the field but, disappointingly, always remained partly concealed by the bars of the fence.

It must be Spring!

It was a warmer day and the sun shone ceaselessly, at last.  The birds were noisily happy and I saw my first brimstone butterfly of the year.  The rooks and crows busied themselves building nests in the bare, topmost branches of the tallest trees.  It must be spring!

Abstract 157

Glassware, seen through the frosted panels of the cabinet, produce a pleasing, colourful abstract picture.

About lines and textures

I was attracted by the contrasting textures of pebble, seaweed and sand,

and by the simple, abstract hieroglyph of a strand of seaweed.

Feather on the sand

I felt there was a metaphor in this image: but the meaning of the metaphor is different for each of us.
