The Sketchbook Project folks
are continuing with their free mini projects
and I signed up for the latest one;
'Along the Way'.
The brief was to take a photograph,
literally of something I saw 'along the way',
and share it on Twitter, Facebook etc
Today was the last day for uploading
and I left it to the last minute, of course.
I walked into the village and I took a few
photographs of things that I noticed.
Photo 1 - REJECTED.
Pretty view but not 'saying' much.
Photo 2 - REJECTED.
Again, attractive architecture but so what?
Photo 3 - REJECTED.
Bit too much 'in-yer-face BRITISH'
with the iconic phone box
(which strangely I had never noticed before -
amazing what you see when you're looking!).
Photo 4 - REJECTED.
This came a very close 2nd place
to the one I chose.
I loved the colourful little tableau
arranged in the chemist window.
Photo 5 - SELECTED.
I found this worm on a concrete area,
a long way from any greenery.
How had it got there?
Had a bird dropped it or a child?
Anyway, it was looking rather sorry for
itself and I placed it in a planter after I had
taken its photo.
Why did I choose this photo?
The worm looked so out of place on the
concrete and, in my opinion, begs the
viewer to ask it why it was there.
I hope it recovered.
The next free project is now up -
'Write a drama in 12 words'.
I've signed up and have a week to
write a 12 word drama, photograph the
words and upload them.
