Killing Two Birds with One Stone

A bit of a late start.

I don’t want another month to go by where I haven’t had at least one photo for Becky’s Squares. This time around, Becky’s theme is Bright, and my photo is of the bright sky reflected through the ripples in the Lake as Mrs Tufty elegantly swam by.

The photo is square… although the blog theme seems to have other ideas about displaying my photos… hopefully you will too see it in the square format.

I’m also posting this for Six Word Saturday, where no birds have been harmed in the post’s creation. Visit both Becky’s site and Debbie’s (6WS) on their respective links to see more.


It’s One Word Sunday yet again, and this week, Debbie’s theme is Six.

I must admit to struggling a little with this one, and was almost about to use the dice again from a previous One Word Sunday post, when I had a burst of inspiration.

Take a look at my photo yet again, and see if you can work out how it links to the word six. It’s obvious, really.

Can’t see it? Then that’s the right answer! In this photo, six is the number of feet you can’t see, although there are six there!

Sigh. One of these days I’ll have a proper photo for Six er One Word Sunday. Visit Debbie’s site on the link above where you’ll see actual proper ones.


It’s One Word Sunday yet again, and Debbie’s theme this time is ‘Spring’. I’ve used a similar version of this photo on the blog before, but to me, this is Spring. The time when colours start to come alive in the natural world.

Over the past few years, in terms of temperature, Spring and Summer seem to have reversed around these here parts, and we go from the chilly Winter days straight into what feels like sub-tropical heat. Summer and Autumn then kind of merge into one, and before we know it, Winter’s here again.

Not wanting to write time away, though, there is something special about every single day – we just have to be more aware to notice it.

Visit Debbie’s site on the above link for more seasonal takes on this week’s theme.


It’s One Word Sunday again, and this week, Debbie’s theme is Opposite.

So, I’ve decided to go for black and white.

No, sorry, I meant to say blurred and sharp.

I think I may have to look at this from the opposite side… I’m not all that certain what I actually did go for.

Perhaps it was square and circle. Square and circle? They aren’t opposites. Oh, I don’t know. You’ll have to follow the link above to Debbie’s site, where you can see some proper takes on the opposite theme.


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

Above are some candles, with candlelight. Below are some crystals with both reflected and refracted light. This light, of course, includes the candlelight, and other light sources as well. It took me ages to get just that tiny speck of yellow light there in the bottom half of the stone… but got it I did!
