365~ January 4th ~ 10th

The prompt for Day 4 was ‘Breakfast’. Well you can’t beat a boiled chucky~egg with toasty soldiers can you?

Breakfast

Day 5’s prompt was ‘Relinquish’. I’ll let you make your own interpretation of what I was relinquishing!

Relinquish

Day 6 was ‘Letters’. I chose an old calligraphy artwork I did back in the 90’s, a poem written in 1941 called High Flight by John Gillespie McGee Jr, an American serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force. It’s my favourite piece of work that I did.

Letters

Day 7 ~ Open. (This one’s for Kim 😘) A good book can open the heart and the mind.

Open

Day 8 ~ Home ~where I stand. This one had to include your feet, good excuse to get out the posh boots 😊

Home

Day 9 ~ Fascinating. This will be a quarterly challenge, taking a picture from the same place in different seasons, and adding each one to the previous shot, so a diptych, then triptych finishing the series as a quadtych. This is the wildlife sanctuary down the road from me, usually full of water birds, but frozen over today.

Season 1

Day 10 ~ Feathers. “Take us on a trip and show us what feathered friends are native in your neck of the woods.Β ” Ya got to be joking- no unecessary journies also the weather is pants here today so I trained my camera on the happy eater tree and waited a couple of hours until some birdies showed up. Luckily the bunch of long tailed tits arrived. Thay are doughty little birds and probably my favourites.

Long Tailed Tits

First full week over, onwards ever onwards…!

  1. Great selections for the challenge words. Though I am wondering if it is only sleep you were ‘relinquishing’. πŸ™‚
    I haven’t had a boiled egg and soldiers for so long, I don’t even remember the last time.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. What a great selection. I love the posh boots, and the boiled egg and soldiers with that rich runny yolk has put me in the mood for that. It’ll be nice and soft on my throat (maybe not the soldiers).

  7. My goodness, FR! You have outdone yourself. The poem β€œHigh Flight” is one of the best, certainly deserving of your beautiful calligraphy. Then there’s the book. It almost looked golden. The term β€˜soldier’ is new to me- love it!

    1. Thanks Jennie, my dad was in the RAF so I love that poem. Toasty soldiers are a must for boiled eggs! 😊

      1. You’re welcome, FR. No wonder you love that poem. Did he get to see your calligraphy? Dipping toast into eggs- yum! Now I can call the toast by its proper name. πŸ™‚

    1. What can I tell you? Soft boil an egg, get a slice of toast cut into 5 strips (soldiers), take the top off the egg and dunk the strips into the yummy yellow bit!

  13. I’ve never tried toasted soldiers. I make mine with the freshest possible bread and they’re buttered. Toasted ones look good, though.

    I love the little birds. They’re so perfect that they almost look manufactured.

    1. I do bake my own bread so the soldiers are very fresh and yummy. The little birds are gorgeous, they come once a day during cold spells, not so much at other times.

  16. To click trough your blog was really amazing. πŸ™‚ I am a student from Austria and the task to create my own blog with wordpress was given to me. To get a good mark at university it’s neccesary to have a lot of visits and follower. I need klicks every day until 25th of January. My blog is about my wonderful homeland Carinthia. In fact it’s really hard to get visits, likes and follower. It would be a pleasure, if you would follow me:
