Birds of a Feather

I missed the first week of the #2019picoftheweek Photography Challenge, hosted by Of Maria Antonia, but, as I was choosing this week’s photo, I came across two related photos and decided to post both, one for this week and one for last week…

A note about my responses for the challenge: The photos I post will be a mix of old and new.  I’ve taken so many photos over the years, it will be nice to give a handful of them a purpose, but I also look forward to taking my camera out and snapping new ones too.

So on to the photos for Weeks’ 1 & 2…

These photos were taken at the beginning of 2017, when I was going through my moody black and white photo phase, which I think suits the personality of geese perfectly.  Here we have a number of Canada Geese swimming peacefully up the River Great Ouse, which passes through my village in North Bedfordshire, UK.

Week 1 – Three of A Kind

Taken: January 2017

Week 2 – All in a Row

Water and Deep

These are for the Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge, that Kiwinana has just started over at Ramblings of a Writer.  Below is my effort for week 1; the words are “deep” and “water”.  The prompt can be found here.  Go and check it out!


The water runs deep

Like turbulent emotions

They ebb and flow

*

Splishing and splashing

Floundering in deep water

All-consuming love
