egg

an oval or round object laid by a female bird,
reptile, fish, or invertebrate…

Fried or scrambled

Easter Sunday favourite

with many.

One-Word-Sunday22-Found

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

found

having been discovered by chance
or unexpectedly.
 
 

~~~~~

 

Recently I found our only piece of garden art

had been so overgrown,

that it was barely visible.

 

 

This is how it looked in its early days

of life in our garden.

One-Word-Sunday22-Lost

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

lost

unable to find one’s way;
not knowing one’s or
something’s whereabouts
 

~~~~~

 

Some years ago now, we purchased and installed

into our garden our new piece of garden art,

 

…in between a newish shrub and

a  then, smallish flax plant

Time has passed and our once prominent

piece of artwork has almost become

a lost piece of art…

…mostly due to its neighbour

the New Zealand Flax. 

The timing of this post could not have been better

as it was only this past week that I noticed

how overgrown our garden art had become.

One-Word-Sunday22-Diagonal

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

diagonal

a straight line joining two opposite corners of a square,
rectangle, or other straight-sided shape.

 

 

~~~~~

 

I’m not certain but I think this geometrical design

was one of the reasons why 

Victoria’s National Gallery of Australian Art… 

 

…divided the public into two camps,  

Team, we love it, and

team, we hate it.

One-Word-Sunday22-Poetic

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

poetic

relating to or used in poetry
 

~~~~~

 

We have often stated the Candi (our Kelpie)

is like poetry in motion when running.

Labrador Taji, on the other hand,

is a real Galumpher.

 

For readers who have never heard of

Galumpher (or Galumphing)

by Australian author Margaret Clarke,

please check out this link.

Galumpher is a wonderful children’s book

that engages all emerging

and young readers.

 

Fishpond.com.au

has an  ‘as new’ copy advertised

***

Galumpher’s Colouring book

IS NOT 

the Children’s book to which

I am referring above

One-Word-Sunday22-Tall

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

tall

of great or more than average height,
especially (with reference to an object)
relative to width
 

~~~~~

At 2,716 feet high, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa,

in my opinion, rates as tall.

 

 

Using my 18-253 mm focal length Sigma lens

at 250 mm focal length

 

 

At 52 mm focal length about

the same as the human eye.

 

 

The scene at

18 mm focal length.

The last three images were taken from

the observation deck on the 148 floor

of the Burj Khalifa.

Elephant Front Foot. 

Unusual fact;

Two and a half times the circumference of this foot

equals the height of the elephant’s shoulder above ground.
