Another suggestion from Jennifer Nichole Wells, this week it’s
Creating a scene is more difficult for me than simply finding one which matches the prompt, I hope I will improve.
A new challenge for me from Jennifer Nicole Wells, “One Word Photo Challenge”. Nicole creates interesting photos of dioramas and the theme for the week is,
I’ve been watching a Blue-Tongue Lizard in our front yard for a while but the weather has been so cold and wet recently I’ve rarely glimpsed it. This morning the sun came out and I thought if I could find the patience to stand, watch and wait I might see it come around the
corner of the rock. My patience was rewarded!
This week’s topic reminded me immediately of the cat in, “Red Dwarf” as he leapt in delight from one thing to another shrieking,
“Oooh shiny thing, shiny thing.”
Nature provides so many, “Ooh shiny thing” moments for me but I’ve chosen a bird because they are what distract me most often.
… but it could have been Ewww shiny thing, slugs distract me too.
A trickier task this week, capturing the
elements, earth, wind, water and fire.
This time only the fire was photographed at home. I don’t usually appreciate the wind but I was pleased it showed itself today.
My challenge this week was in limiting the number of photos I chose to illustrate, “

Lamb’s Ear leaf
Mud Dauber Wasp nest
Rotting wood pulp
