Not half bad

It’s a fair day today. The featured pic was taken this morning when I put my rubbish out at the gate – snapping a selection to choose from for my now regular Monday morning Blip, the Monday Outlook. Today I was inspired by my sister-in-law to get out my polarising filter and make some use of it.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can.
