On a Small Scale

I’ve recently started following an Internet Nobody. I have. I really have.

Each week, they supply a Cosmic Photo Challenge. This weekend, the theme was ‘On a Small Scale’. So I thought to myself Hmmm… what’s small? I knew I’d be using my mobilius phonius to take the photo, as I can get quite close to small things with it (like yesterday’s tortoise – that fits in the palm of one’s hand, wouldn’t you know?).

I thought of a postage stamp.

I reached for my stamp collection, and selected this one out of the five.

It was only as I was taking the photo that I realised the stamp was for the value of 1p. 1p! I’d misread it as ‘1st’ for some reason, an easy mistake I’m sure.

However a small value on a small postage stamp? Very small-scale in my book! The link above will allow you to see other small things (there are some creepy-crawlies though, so be warned!)


Here we are with One Word Sunday once again. Debbie has selected Touch for this week’s theme, and I have gone with this… but can you tell what it is?

I shall not keep you guessing. Oh no, not this week.

It’s a touch of yellow paint on my pallet that I found by chance yesterday.

Obviously, it’s now dry to the touch. As it’s quite a bright yellow, and the middle photo’s square, I’m also linking this post to Becky’s BrightSquares.

The links go to the respective sites and open in separate windows.

A Very Quick Dance for Saturday

The rhythm took me one way
My legs went the other
The swirling lights were startling
Making it seem tougher
I arched my back in elegance
Through strains of music loud
And I don’t think anyone noticed
When I tumbled to the ground

Told you: a very quick dance for Saturday.
