6 word story–brave


Joining Miriam in sharing a photo and 6 word story each Friday – today the word is Brave.

I feel I have to add some more context – I spotted this attached to the bridge struts on my morning walk – searched the # and discovered it is part of a local celebration – this part aims to prettify the area with craft bombing – I would go but they meet at the same time as my linedancing class which I love.  Why do all good classes happen on a Tuesday evening ??

I have another set of animal sculptures today - although not the set I had in mind when I set off from home, camera in hand.

I started with the lion which is in a park in the centre of town.  Then I walked along to the other end of the main street to capture a colourful bull outside a bar.  On the way I spotted the baby elephant which I'm sure was not there a few months ago.

Then I remembered that I had another photo of an animal carved from a large granite boulder so I went into my archive to complete this set - the fish is out on the other side of town.

The bull I will keep for yet another set of animal sculptures in Edinburgh.

Looking forward to see what visual sets have been catching your eye this week

Memorandum Monday enters the year of the monkey

A big wave to you all on the start of the Chinese year of the monkey – disappointingly there are no public celebrations of this in Edinburgh – when I lived in Auckland there was a fabulous lantern festival in a park near where I worked.

As I settled down to watch the rugby on Saturday I had a small hope that my new thing for the weekend would be watching Scotland beat England for the first time – but it was not to be.  I did enjoy the rugby though, in particular the hard fought draw between Ireland and Wales on Sunday.

So my new thing to share is actually from just after I posted last week – my new glasses


the frames are a purple / green ‘watercolour’ effect.  They are very light and fit well and there was no adjustment in the seeing – in the past I have sometimes had a bit of adjustment to distance and angle for reading and the computer screen.

Hope you all have a great week
