Midnight Salford

To start with, here’s a night time shot of the Holiday inn express on Salford’s Quayside, taken at Dusk by one of the Docks or as the people call them now basins 🙂

You could call this a 3D shot – as it was Dark as well !

Ducks!
The Ducks of Oludeniz – taking cover from the sun

This shot was taken during a family holiday to the Turkish Resort of Oludeniz.  The beach was teaming with wildlife, maybe down to the hordes of fish that sat in the clear blue waters by the sand.  The Ducks raised a smile as they waddled about in the sea.

Peculiar

A reflection.

 

Sat a cafe bar on a greek island, enjoying fish and chips

taking in the breeze off the azure blue sea and

observing the comings and goings of the day – when

reactions are heightened by two feathered locals

kept company down the marble path by their owner

 

! i’d tell you what they were – but i reckon you would guess!

It begins simply enough,

a simple bucket of bricks

stacked up from top to bottom

till at last – they topple

oh what fun!

 

The next thing you know

you’re building a wall

with stuff from the sea

and occasionally it falls

oh what fun

 

 

 

 

Message in a bottle

Bottle

Messageinbottle

The green glass container

landed with a bump on the sands

The sea, tired of its presence

 

No fine wine or olive oil here

but something more precious

a message for someone special

 

Sent in hope than anticipation

dropped into blue waters

floating off towards land

 

Time remains – and Questions Unanswered

Did message reach intended target ?

Or is he (or she) ? combing the shore ?

Goodbye Sun, Hello Moon

Another tale poached from my repository at Allpoetry.com by me – Hope you Like it

The sun set on the sand , that summers night,
heading to brighten another place bright.
It slowly went behind the sea
and shimmered on waters, in front of me
The sky changed colour from blue to red,
and slowly the sun dipped its head.
And as the sun dipped behind the bay
stars of afar began to display.
It took a while to make a mark
the moon appearing in an arc.
A carpet of stars appeared from up high
twinkling as I passed them by
and water in the bay, reflected the light
of the new moon that lit up the night.

footprints-in-sand.jpg

Four sets of feet walking in line on the beach

As you follow the line of footprints

Patterns begin to emerge

as footprints snake from east to west

smaller feet seemingly running rings around the big ones

but as we reach the end of the walk

these little feet disappear

washed away by northern water ? – No!

on their way to Fish and Chips

a little one has had his pips

his battery – is a little whacked

so Grandad has given him a piggyback.
