WPC: Evanescent

Wake me up, wake me up inside, I can’t wake up,
Wake me up inside, save me,
Call my name and save me from the dark, wake me up
Bid my blood to run, I can’t wake up
Before I come undone, save me
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Oh, wait a minute. That’s Evanescence…. this week’s word is Evanescent! *goes and Googles the meaning of evanescent*

Evanescent: soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

Bring me to life, I’ve been living a lie
There’s nothing inside, bring me to life.

WPC: Surprise

I didn’t think I was going to participate this week in the Weekly Photo Challenge as I couldn’t think of anything to photograph and didn’t have time to look through my archives, but yesterday I was up visiting my daughter at her apartment and got the cutest surprise when I saw the baby geese (goslings?) sitting at the edge of the pond right outside her front door.

Goslings lowres
THEY’RE SO FLUFFFFFYYYYY – I’M GONNA DIE!

I suggested daughter kidnap them and let them live in her bathtub but daddy Goose gave me the stink-eye when I made the suggestion.

Daddy, or mummy, who can tell?

Anyway a nice wee surprise and I was happy that I had my compact camera with me to capture them as my phone wouldn’t have done justice to their cuteness level.

Photo 101: Edge

Off out today to my nearest ‘big’ town for a bit of retail therapy and as I was driving up I thought about what to photograph for today’s theme, when I rememered there was a cool statue in the downtown area. So I parked in the nearest car park and off I went to shoot the statue with all the jaggy edges that I remembered.

Then wandering round the area further I came across some more interesting statues and street art with cool edges.

Statue2

This one makes me think of some kind of groovy snails!

Statue3

Not sure what this one is supposed to be. A metal dog? (you can probably tell I’m a wonderful art-critic!)

statue4

A flying something or other (with more cool jagged edges)

statue5

??? But it’s very cool though.

statue6

Ahh, now this one I can describe. Me as a child hiding away with my book!

statue7

Your worst nightmare. A 8ft high metal beastie….

statue8

Some sort of metal atom thingy. By this time you can probably see it had started raining. The heavens had opened and it was all thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening.

When I got back to the car I was drookit! Drowned rat would be putting it mildly!

So mission completed I headed to the mall where even the geese were trying to get in out of the storm!

I suffered for the sake of this blogging malarkey today ye ken! But I don’t melt so it was all good fun.
