…for everything. In my case, that’s doing a Selfie. Sure, I’ve photographed myself before, but always with a camera rather than a phone. I had to do a passport-style shot not so long ago and I did that with the Canon 5D…

…but today I thought I’d try out this selfie lark. Here I am indoors struggling to understand how a mobile phone camera works 🙄…

…and then here’s a shot at the football before the game…

…I guess there’s a reason why selfie-takers have those strange tickling sticks then🤨 ps- I had a haircut between shots🤣

Lets start this week’s CMMC with something personal. I have new glasses 🙂 …

… and that’s the X-Pro2 at the bottom – my daily use camera.

In the garden, the thistles continue to grow well and the birds are loving it. This is the flower of Great Lettuce…

…a member of the thistle family that grows to over 6 feet tall! The Brambles are also flowering and the berries are starting to set…

…If we want some of those we’ll have to be quick because we’ll be racing the Blackbirds for them! 😉

To finish, this is the cover of my address book – the design is taken from Pueblo pottery…

That’s all folks – take a look at Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and enjoy the photos – and perhaps have a go yourself 🙂

2am – and I’m awake..
Disturbed sleep…
unexpected silence
So quiet – no chatter
No shouting at friends
As Destiny evolves

Computer standing…
No lights, no fans
Keyboard unlit – mouse dead
Desk unattended
It’s all off…

It feels so strange
Just yesterday we were talking
and the day before,
sharing sounds
talking games…

Today – you’re gone…
Our home – is missing…
Someone…

Strong feelings of loss
And so much to remember…
Separation was expected
but expectation…
does nothing to still the emptiness

I need to get a grip
to find my way to…
understand…
The Boy is no longer..
You have become a Man
