And Then There Were Two

Trigger Warning – this post contains content that may distress some readers.

This was not the post I was going to write for the Ragtag Daily Prompt – Purple.  As I chose today’s RDP, I had a bit of a heads-up, but plans change.  This post is about love, loss, grieving and wee birds.  It’s not really about purple but there is one small, important connection to the Prompt word.  Coincidentally, this post also fits the Word of the Day – Mellifluous.

Singin’ Sweet Songs of Melodies Pure and True

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge  –  Sweet

Once upon a time, my love and I did what many young Aussies do – we went backpacking around Europe.  One of our favourite places was Nice.  Our stay in Nice was not without its dramas, and maybe because of that, it made the rest of our stay all the more sweet.

Our hotel room window overlooked an alley way and apartments.  Every morning, a little canary in its cage was hung outside the window of the adjoining apartment.  Read more

Birds of Tile & Feather

I might have suggested to a few people that I’ve done artworks (mosaics) of some Aussie birds and promised to post some photos of them.  Lately though, I have been concentrating on dog mosaics, but I find myself returning to birds time and again.  I have tremendous admiration for people who can photograph birds well, because I find it incredibly difficult to take a decent photo of my mosaics.  They glitter and sparkle at all angles, hence it is virtually impossible to take a photo without being blinded by reflection.   I love big bold colour, so I guess a little sparkle goes with the territory.  Read more

Pelican ahoy

I thought I would join in a photo challenge from Debbie at Travel with Intent.  The theme is White.  My participation is inspired by Brian at Bushboys World.  Brian has posted some photos of beautiful white pelicans.   So I thought I would post a photo of a pelican too.  But this one is not real.  It is a mosaic piece I made a number of years ago.

Enjoy.

Pelican (2011) – tile on board

Unfortunately, I’ve almost exhausted my supply of the lovely pink tile and there are no more to be found.
