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

As Hallowe’en is approaching, and I’m adding my usual run of Hallowe’en themed posts, I had to cheat a little with this week’s theme and adapt my photo somewhat. It’s a collection of old mobile phones I have – I tend to keep everything as they may ‘come in’ one day (well, you never know!) and I wanted to create a mobile phone graveyard. I have to get these ideas out there otherwise they will haunt me forever more!

So, I’ve overlaid a couple of images to my photo, to make them seem somewhat spooky. Spookier. Kooky. The first one is a lighting bolt, and the second is a photo of clouds to provide an incoming mist effect. Although I like the colours with the lightning one, I prefer the clouds one. The original photo is in the header, which is probably all the more frightening in its starkness.

Please visit Debbie’s site (link above) to see more interpretations on this theme.

It’s One Word Sunday once again, and this week, Debbie’s theme is ‘Pink’. The Seedlings are on their way out now, but every time I look at them there is always a new flower that has opened. They have been a remarkable surprise this year, those little Seedlings have!

A few days ago, I spotted this blood red flower, all by itself apart from one of the pink flowers a little way behind it. I knew that this week’s theme was going to be ‘Pink’, but I used one of the pink Seedlings for my interpretation of ‘Wet’ last week, so didn’t want to use another one of those… I saw this and thought it would be a good compromise. The pink element has been fulfilled, if only as a splash of background colour, and this little flower now gets to live on forever more! And it has a subtle link to my Hallowe’en theme for this month as well!
