Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 – Gap

Get into the groove with Hugh.

Hugh's Views & News

Mind the Gap! That’s something I heard often when travelling on the London Underground. The gap being referred to was the sometimes rather large gap between the station platform and the entrance to the carriage. I remember looking down into that gap and wondering what monsters may be down there. *Stop right there, Hugh, this is not one of your horror short stories.*

Here’s a photo that has a happier gap in it.

Hugh's Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 - Gap

Of course, there will have once been a wall where that gap now is, but on this particular sunny day, the gap revealed some blue sky and bits of fluffy white clouds.

This week your challenge is to take a photo of a gap. It could be a gap between two buildings or maybe that gap in your garden fence. Maybe there’s a gap that your pet dog squeezes through or a gap that a child has between…

Spunky takes over!

When Hugh and Toby’s away over at Hugh’s Views & News, what happens?

Hugh's Views & News

Hello y’all,

I’m Spunky. Ronovan’s eating his dinner right now and left his laptop up and running. Ever since I saw that show Dog with a Blog on the mouse ears channel, I knew if a dog could do it, so could I.

And here I am.

Ronovan told me that Toby had left the building. I rarely enter the building so I’m not sure what he meant by that, but good for Toby. Getting outside is good for anyone. Even people. People don’t understand what we go through to exercise them. I bat the ball into the woods every time Ronovan and his boy “B” come outside. It gives them a good workout.

I’ve seen picture of Toby having to drag that human with the skinny head around to make him exercise as well. I think that’s Hugh, unless Hugh is the one with four legs and Toby is…

A stitch in the eye!

I had intended to enter the Photo Challenge hosted by Daffy and Melissa for Stitch this week, and I am going to use what I planned to. The only thing is, there is an addition and a reason my own Challenge won’t have a detailed review. A bit difficult when you have to keep an ice pack on and your eyesight is a bit blurry. Click the blue words up there for other entries.

Below is the offender.

My son has baseball tryouts next Saturday, and I felt good because of my book being available for pre-order. So I thought I would go outside in the nice fresh air with said son and throw, or actually catch the ball, since he needed to practice throwing. I would underhand toss it high in the air for him to practice. That was easy for me to do. I actually did a good job at catching, until … well …

The offending baseball.

Below is the Offended.

This is the eye about two hours later. I am not showing you the whole area. I thought the color alone of that nice, first black eye in my life, along with that green tinge would be nice to see.

Apparently the ball tipped off my glove and hit a fence behind me, then hit me square in the eye, or round in the eye. But there it is. I yelled in pain once, and said ‘Oh, Gosh!” according to my son. Pretty proud of myself. Goes to show not using profanity or any bad language since the day I found out he was to be born paid off.

The offended.

To the Stars-Robots on the Loose! #Photography

Not long ago I was doing some photo shooting of a sight that occurs in my Southern Romance. I wanted some pictures I could use to capture the true imagery of the place. I love old tin toys that really do work. So does my son. He passed this one up because he had a specific toy in mind he wanted on this trip. I was going to enter this in a photo challenge of one of my friends but I was a bit too late. Instead I think it fits well for Throw Back Thursday type post.

Tin Toys of the type I’m talking about came into being around the middle of the 1800s from Germany. Original Tin Robots are some of the most sought after. Obviously this is not one of those. Click HERE for a great article about the history of Tin Toys on a site I found.

The photo was taken with my little LG phone.

If this guy is around the next time I make it through there, I think he’ll be coming home with me.

The stars the limit,

When you are wound up too tight,

Children push buttons.

Haiku – Sing to the Day by @Roccoco_a_GoGo

FIRST OFFENDER!
TJ in with the most interesting sand spider ever. Remember to click through and like on his original post. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin

Christmas Spider This strange spider, little more than a centimetre across showed its spectacular abdomen as it clambered about on the sandstone rock-face.

Through the spider’s web

The wind whispers gentle songs

To the new born day

…O…

Version 2

Through the spider’s web

The wind strumming lullabies

To the new born day

Which do you prefer?

Ronovan Writes Monday Haiku Prompts for the week this week are Sing and Day

This is a photograph I took of a peculiar spider that was on a rock wall at a quarry where we performed a Christmas Concert on the weekend.

As most people know, Perth is rife with critters that crawl, bite and sting but I have never seen this particular spider before. Perhaps I have discovered a rare new species!!!
