Beyond the Sphere

An industrial unit caught my eye a while ago… something in the back of my mind must have told me that Becky would be having a Square Perspectives challenge one day. I think this fits the theme nicely!

It’s One Word Sunday yet again, the theme this week being ‘Distance’.

So, for Debbie’s challenge, and Becky’s Square Perspectives, my photo shows different stages of distance. Well, things in it, but you know what I mean.

Then, I got thinking. Distance doesn’t necessarily mean things far far away. It could also refer to something very close up… the distance being the bit between us and the subject, so I have a second photo today of a small flower.

Well, it is Sunday.

Smile!

And the world will smile with you!

“This will be the main image for the Big Chamber, husband. It can go on the big wall.” Queen Ellimayee told King Rabletop III whilst trying to stay as still as she possibly could, as the chief decorator looked on desperately trying to remember their poses in great detail. “Agnes, our chief servant, has already done her poses for the Upper and Lower Borders. We can add our regal poses for the left and right of the main image at a later time. We don’t want to overwork Cedric today.”

“Today?” Rabletop whispered in reply. “It will take him over a year just to mix the paint. It’s no wonder we look nothing like our images when they’re complete.”

“We have changed since our last portraits were done, I agree.” Ellimayee agreed.

“We haven’t changed that much. And Cedric’s excuse that the paint was cracking doesn’t wash with me either.”

“Husband, what is it?” Queen Ellimayee looked on as her husband, King Rabletop III emerged from the store and stood at the top of the steps, his hands out in front of him.

“This store is rubbish!” He declared. “Not a grape in sight. Nor a pear. Nor a, erm, banana-thing.”

Ellimayee rolled her eyes. “Please, husband, when we get back to the Palace of the Sands, please consult the Book of Thoth once again. This is the home furnishings store. The fruit merchant is next door.”

Disgruntled, Rabletop screwed his face. “Please tell me again, wife, why we have come shopping and not commanded our servants to do so for us?”

“Because, husband, you said you wanted to get out with the people more.”

“Indeed I did,” Rabletop thumbed to the store behind him, “but I meant by getting out in the sun to give our commandments, not this!”
