    A man in possession of a wooden spoon must be in want of a pot to stir.

    Very nice, Bloggsworth.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    Quite stunning, Bloggsworth. The color on that little bird is wonderful. I especially love the contrast on those flowers, and that web looks so thick, as if it's yarn.

    I hope to take my new camera outside this spring and get some great shots,too.

    Lovely images Bloggs'. My eye was particularly drawn to the fragility of the robin's legs.
    "I think a life is a plot. It's probably the elementary plot. I came across a quotation of Patrick White, the Australian writer, just about the time I needed it. He said he never bothers with plot. He just writes about life 'limping along toward death.' That made me feel much better, to keep this in my mind."

    Great pictures, Bloggsworth.

    I like the frost on the edge of the petals too.

    I'm on a 10 wk, 'how to get the most from your digital camera' course - 3wks in and the main thing I've learned so far - I need to up grade to a new camera.

    A better camera won't make you a better photographer, better photographs will; first you have to learn how to "see" the picture, something I seldom do; I am in awe of those who consistently can, but like most other arts, it is a matter of time and input. Digital cameras make the practice bit a lot cheaper than it used to be, no more paying out for 5 rolls of slides to be developed then throwing 80% of then away on first viewing, than another 5% after a second look!

    This was taken on a cheap Fuji compact - I wound up the blue and desaturated every other colour:

    I understand about having an artistic eye - but still need a new camera.

    Or to put it another way - I would love a new camera.

    Hence the new Nikon. I found I couldn't do without a proper viewfinder and manual focus. Gave my college my old Canon EOS600 + lenses.
