Do you have your witch ball in place for Halloween?
According to folk tales, witch balls would entice evil spirits with their bright colors (and refracted light);the strands inside the ball would then capture the spirit and prevent it from escaping. They must work because my garden is free of evil spirits!
I really like sparkly refracted light this is my second post for This challenge.
I had no idea what I had to offer for the macro challenge today until I went into the kitchen and ray of light hit this turkey feather left and forgotten on a window sill. Leaning over the sink I captured a few images before the sun lit shadow dance diapered. Law of Similars I find the feather tips look a little bird like as they sway across the image. What do you think and which do prefer?
What once was revolting and
a rebellion, then became revolutionary
is now quite ordinary.
The solar system revolves on the back
of the tattooed lady in front of me
at a wedding ceremony.
The bride wears her mother’s dress
and big back combed hair for
a look that would be extraordinarily revolutionary in 1953.
Sunday, I spent most of the wedding trying to take a picture of the tattoo, knowing I would use it in a blog but not so soon. But Margo Rody gave us the challenge of There and Back Again..Does this work?
I went to the internet to find a quote for Autumn flame or flaming and it seems there is a cottage industry of images of bright red and orange foliage. So this week I add my leaves to the pile. Where I am flaming fall is not a metaphor, with fires burning and temperatures climbing everything seems to be aflame. I hope my weekly mantra of hot and dry changes soon.
