Beyond the Sphere

Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday this week is Creepy.

I’m sharing two photos, the first is a creepy looking weed that a snail appears to be trying to hide behind. I wouldn’t say the snail is creepy, however.  Maybe crawly, but not creepy.

The second is an old house on the hill, which, in the right light, definitely looks creepy.

Visit Debbie’s site for more interpretations of the theme.


(Well, they did so this morning!)

A windy post for Six Word Saturday


One: One Word Sunday Halloween Special

Two: KindaSquares Halloween Special

(Kinda cheatin’ more like!)

As some of you may be aware, Hallowe’en is one of my favourite times of the year. This year, things are slightly different for some reason that kinda escapes me right now. But, as luck would have it I’m still celebrating Hallowe’en here on Beyond the Sphere.

This year, two of my characters are on a quest which is sending them throughout my part of the Blogosphere, meaning they pop up in quite a few of the more regular items that appear on the blog.

One Word Sunday and Becky’s KindaSquares have both received the crossover treatment today.

Two challenges with two photos of two characters in not two, but one post. I could have done two posts, but then this sentence wouldn’t be needed. Or needed to be repeated slightly differently. Either way, they’re both in the same post whether the sentence(s!) make tense sense or not.

I blame the Sinsters. The characters. They have a mission to spread fun and chaos at the same time. Not that I need them to blame, as I can do that myself, well, especially the chaos part. But blame them I will.

The two images on this post aren’t screenshots. They are photos of my computer screen showing the early stages of the development of a picture I was making for one of the previous posts (in what’s known as a wireframe mode). As they aren’t screenshots, and are photos (and are square!), and are kinda different, I think they work with both challenges, which is why I’m using them for today’s post.

Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday today is ‘Two’ (which you may have gathered from the title of the post and the odd clue or two dotted throughout it.

Please visit the links above for more interpretations on both challenges.

there’s freedom ahead
freedom beyond the barbed wire
freedom there for all

Be a Wire Cutter

Barbs and wires in the way
Restricting movement
Blocking the way forward
But look ahead
Look beyond
Be a wire cutter
And touch the future

Living on Barbed Wire

Keeping in things in
And out out
Yet still a place to rest
Those weary wings

To the Wire

In the right light
Even the barbed wire
Has a unique beauty

It’s Six Word Saturday once again. This week, I’m posting something different, inspired by Debbie’s post. I put together a quick picture to match the post, and then quickly threw together the words to match the picture.

And before you say it… Six Word Saturday refers to the title of the post only… the content can be millions of words long if required! Visit Debbie’s post for more six words.

It’s One Word Sunday yet again, and this week, Debbie’s theme is Bright. So, I’ve gone for a nice bright sky. We up this part of the world are now heading into Winter, so the skies may soon be dark and grey. But then again, there are the nice, crisp, clear skies of Winter as well, which serve to remind us that the warm days of Spring and Summer are not too far away. The future, as they say, is bright. It’s worth keeping that in mind!

These sky photos are also a nice kinda blue, don’t ya think? Posted also for Becky’s KindaSquares!
