Upright

It appears that silly season isn’t quite over yet, as I had incorrectly stated in my recent Reflections Letters to the Universe post. Ah well. Can’t be helped, I suppose, with a mind like mine!

My photo entry for this week’s One Word Sunday theme of Upright almost but not quite hits the mark. It’s an old Selfie of me, but one I instantly thought of when I saw the theme. My hair doesn’t look like that now, I hasten to add.

Visit Debbie’s site to see more (sensible) takes on this, and last, week’s theme.


The Bluebell Selfie

I wanted to take an unusual photo of the bluebells this past weekend, so twisted myself into all sorts of peculiar angles to get ‘the’ shot. I’m a bit achy today, but never mind about that. The photo above is the one, I feel.

Whilst taking the photos, I accidentally took a Selfie of myself, of my usual standard, I must add:

And just by looking at the photo you can imagine the position I was in!

I also saw some white bluebells:

Although they don’t look particularly white on the above photo.

I also saw some striped bluebells:

The second photo above is part of the first as, just like the white bluebells, the stripes don’t appear as bold in the photo as they do in real life.

I also spotted this chap whilst I was out on my rounds:

  And this wasp, sleeping:

This shield bug also popped by for a quick photo:

But it was really bluebells I wanted to photograph…

The stripes seem more vivid in this following photo as well:

I even managed to catch a busy bee at work:

Although he was a little to busy to pose for a photograph, hence the furry blurry image in the middle.

Nature really is miraculous when you look at it in close detail. The above photo, which is also the header image, clearly shows the white bluebell at the front there. It’s also the one in the first photo on this post, just to further add a little perspective.

Enjoy the week! Spread some light and joy! And have fun.


About the images:

All taken over the last weekend of April 2017 out in the Grinds,using a Galaxy Note 4 mobile phone. And I’m not really that achy, all things considered.

Saturday Selfie: Hallowe’en Special

Urgh. Don’t know what I ate and drank last night, but this morning, I felt rough. Dry, gravelly throat, sluggish movements and REALLY itchy skin. I mean it felt as though it were crawling. Ugh.

I’ve been planning a Selfie post for a while now, and decided on today. It’s a warts and all one, I’m afraid. I couldn’t be bothered airbrushing it this time.

Here’s to a Feel Good Saturday, however we’re feeling really!

Saturday Selection

The bluebells are out in force now. Above is my first attempt at taking a moving photograph of them. It’s a bit jerky and uneven, but it’s a start, I suppose! And below, a regular still photograph of the newest bluebells to emerge.

And below, still some waiting to emerge:

And below, not a bluebell, but a blueberry…

Not by itself, I might add. Joined by a couple of strawberries, raspberries, and kiwi slices, all combined in a delicious Summer Fruit Tartlet which I devoured after tea.

If you look closely at the blueberry, you may notice my latest Selfie. I go to some extremes for my Selfies, you know!

HAPPY WEEKEND!
