Cosmic Photo prompt…

Ok, being on time two weeks running was a bit much to expect, I suppose.

K’lee has the responsibility for choosing this week’s theme for Monday’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post, so without further ado, let’s see what he’s left us;

Faster than the Speed of Light, to be interpreted in any way you deem creatively feasible for the grand unveiling we do each Monday.”

Right then, now you know, so get snapping and inspire us with your brilliance at the start of next week.

*****

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary…

Today’s alternative definition should resonate with the younger generation and their trendy youth-speak;

“Radish” – Fairly hip.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Happy Monday, one and all, and welcome to this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today inspired by my prompt from Friday, which was; Through, between, behind, beyond.

It was not something I’d thought about, so it was a last minute decision to use our new garden as a subject for the challenge.

We only really started work on our latest horticultural project last weekend, but now it’s coming along rather nicely, even if I do say so myself, (despite Rhonda doing most of the actual gardening) although possibly not advanced enough to warrant a full post to itself.

So what I’ve tried to do, in keeping with today’s theme, is to give you a few glimpses of the garden, from behind some plants, through the shed doorway, between the leaves, to catch hints of what lies beyond.

The link to K’lee’s post is HERE.

Now it’s time to show us what you captured this week.

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The Accumulator, part thirty five…

Hello there and welcome to the return of SoCS, after a three week hiatus, even if today’s post is a little short, continuing this story with assistance from Linda G Hill and her prompt for the week;

” “admit.” Use it any way you’d like. “

Right, where had we got to? Oh yes, I remember…

The Accumulator, part thirty five.

Scene: A derelict factory building, its brutal industrial outline silhouetted against the glowing orange lights of a distant town, while a full moon hangs directly above in the clear night sky.
It is the present.

The rusting chain link fence sags drunkenly, a broken gate hanging open, from which a redundant NO ADMITTANCE sign dangles, creaking as it sways in a slight, muggy breeze.

The wide opening shot now begins to tighten, gradually zooming in to a small window on the front of the building, which we glide through without incident and find ourselves in a large empty warehouse.
The perimeter of the cavernous interior is almost invisible in the gloom, indistinct walls rising into the shadows to meet the corrugated steel roof overhead.

The director treats us to a long slow pan around the silent space, coming smoothly to a halt as a diagonal shaft of moonlight comes into view, shining in through a broken roof panel.

Picked out by this solitary beam, as though by spotlight on an empty stage, a body is sprawled in a pool of blood, one leg twisted awkwardly beneath them, arms thrown out to either side as though welcoming Death, for there is no mistaking the stillness of the body for anything else.

From this angle it is impossible to tell who the figure is, the head and shoulders are shrouded in darkness, outside the jagged splash of moonlight, all we can see is that they are dressed in dark military style fatigues, but the gaping hole where their chest used to be is visible even from here.

After a few seconds, the screen fades to black.

*****

Scene: Inside the black van.
It is two hours ago.

Patrick is driving, travelling on a mostly deserted motorway, the strobing of streetlights flashing across his face, the strain of the day now starting to show in the dark rings around his eyes and the clenched muscles of his jaw.

Next to him, Cathy dozes in her seat while in the back, Carlisle watches her with a curious look on his face, as though trying to recall something just out of his reach. After a moment, the look turns to one of grim satisfaction and he sits back with a thoughtful expression as the van speeds on through the night.

***********

To be continued (using next week’s prompt)…

The Woolhouse opens to the public…

You will have read a lot of stuff on here over the last few weeks, about my long obsession with David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and my more recent involvement with the happy, friendly and hilariously bonkers group, The Woolhouse Boys on Facebook.

Well it’s finally time for us to come out of the warm, woolly shadows and step, blinking, into the light of day, because The Woolhouse is now officially open to all. Well, all of you who already inhabit the world of Facebook, anyway.

That’s right, you can now join the formerly exclusive club of John Justice Wheeler knitwear enthusiasts and merry woolen pranksters, allowing you access to the entire woolly wonderland. 

Not only can you enter the main Woolhouse Boys group, but you can also take advantage of the Woolhouse Boys Secrets page, where you will find inside information on the show itself, educated theorizing on plot and character development and all manner of unseen and behind the scenes gems, gathered by our well-connected founding members, not to mention a lot of good company and an eclectic selection of amazing artistic talent.

But it doesn’t end there, because there is now a new addition to our fast-expanding corner of the wooled wide web, the Woolhouse Boys Contests page, where you will be able to take part in fun competitions, with a chance to win Twin Peaks related prizes and Woolhouse Boys goodies.

So come and join in the fun and see what you’ve been missing, use the links below to enter our world, there will be a warm and woolly welcome waiting for you and many yarns to be spun.

***THE WOOLHOUSE BOYS***

***WOOLHOUSE BOYS SECRETS***

***WOOLHOUSE BOYS CONTESTS***

I’ll see you in the trees.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Aha! You didn’t think I’d make it in time, did you? But here I am, on a Friday, to give you your theme for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which is my choice this week and I’m going for; Through, between, behind, beyond.

Any way you’d like to interpret that is fine: take a photo through a window, between two thorns, behind the bike shed, beyond the hills and far away, it’s entirely up to you.

One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary…

I think today’s alternative definition is fairly self-explanatory;

“Aspirant” – An ambitious insect.
