Town and country sunrise… | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

A beautiful sunrise and inspirational post from Sue.

“I can’t remember ever actually watching a dawn,” said my son in a plaintive little voice.  He had been looking at some of my dawn photos, taken that morning from my doorstep. He …

Photography 101: Warmth & the Quality of Light — March 17, 2016

Photography 101: Warmth & the Quality of Light

Today for our photography course, we are to think about light, specifically from the sun. Now, there was talk of front lighting and side lighting which I might have to swot up on a bit. Although it may sound obvious, I am not exactly sure of the fundamentals! I presume this shot is backlit due to the sun being behind the tree, but as I said, I need to get my head around exactly how they all work!

Episode 488: Things I like — September 8, 2015

Episode 488: Things I like

For today’s Writing 101 prompt, we are to write a list. I decided that  mine would be about things that I like:

Having long and beautifully shaped nails. Unfortunately, as you can see, mine are neither! This is about as long as I dare let them get for work. (It was weird looking at my hands as they are so bloody ugly, which I had never realised before)!

Nails

The beautiful scent of roses and sweet peas. These can just lift the spirits of anyone who is feeling down. Not only with their beautiful smell, but they look so pretty too.

Roses

1950s style fashions: I love the full-skirted dresses that were popular in this era, the makeup, the shoes, and the hair (that’s basically everything then)! If only I had an hour-glass figure to suit the style then all would be well in my little world!

50s dress

A witty and dry put-down or come back I can never think of a reply quick enough when anyone says something cutting to me, so I admire those that are a master of clever quips!

Nasty Look

A clean & tidy bay full of patients. I love it when all of my patients are washed and dressed, with their hair brushed. Looking and feeling comfortable and relaxed.(Please note I used an old picture of a hospital ward in the 1970s as it looked better in those days)!!!

Being told I look young for my age. It used to be a real pain when I was younger being constantly asked for ID, but now it is a bonus being taken for a few years younger (As I was in this pic)!

A Younger me
Playing games with family, we are all so competitive, and it can get a bit heated. the banter is particularly funny between Mr Grump and my brother-in-law (Mr Musician)!

Daybreak in the summer when it is around 4am The beautiful sunrise is a sight to behold.

Having a good cry over a film/song/book! I am a big softie and cry at anything sad (shhh, so does Mr Grump)!

Learning something new. I always like to try to stretch myself, and love trying new things. Actually just yesterday as well as starting the Writing 101 course, I also started one on Open University for 6 weeks all about identifying a dead body! (We get our own case to solve and everything, using the forensics that we are going to be learning).

Episode 333: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #45: Pitch and Time

It is that time again when Ronovan sets us the week’s Haiku challenge. The words that we are to use this week are ‘pitch’ and ‘time’. I shall try not to lower the tone this time!

Here is my attempt:

Early Risers.

It is 4am:

Time for the starlings to sing

Their pitch is too high!
