Cosmic Photo prompt.

For K’lee’s latest choice of theme on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, he picked one I already have plenty of material for; Move the clouds, a heavenly perspective.

We’re never short of spectacular aerial views around here, so I’ll hopefully be able to capture something new, too.

You know the drill; meet back here on Monday and show us watcha got.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme of Food for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which was a spur of the moment decision and I didn’t really know what I’d do, although I did think it might be nice to include some movement in my contribution this week.

So I set up a makeshift studio in the kitchen with a tripod and my Stikbot stop motion app and started chopping. As it turned out, the vegetables had more personality than I originally thought.

First I made a couple of artistic compositions…

…followed by fifteen second stop frame animation which I was quite pleased with, but then I started mucking about with some effects and added a soundtrack by Krautrock guru Manuel Göttsching and it ended up as this one and a half minute masterpiece.

I’m sure K’lee will be cooking up something delicious for you HERE.

Now it’s time to share your cunningly captured culinary creations.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

For this week’s theme on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I’ve chosen something I know you will all have a chance to capture at some point over the weekend; Food.

It’s a prompt we’ve had before, I think, but there’s lots of room for culinary inspiration; so whether it’s raw or cooked, straightforward or artistic, let’s get some mouthwatering foodie photos to start the week.

You know how to do it by now…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee set the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to get all architectural on us and suggesting we investigate the possibilities of the prompt; Sublimely structural.

I’m not sure if my offerings count as sublime or ridiculous, you’ll have to decide for yourselves.

I had to drop Audrey at Barnstaple’s Queen’s Theatre yesterday afternoon, where she was attending an eight hour rehearsal for the upcoming Gang Show, so while I was there I took a few photos of the theatre itself and some other buildings around town…

…then I got to work on a selection of composite images that I’m calling Imaginary Barnstaple.

You can see what K’lee has been building for us HERE.

Now you can showcase your creative outpourings, it’s easy when you know how…

It is happening again. It is happening again.

On Wednesday the 6th of February 2019, that’s this Wednesday, my accidental debut novel, The Wrong Stuff receives its first proper, professional book launch, courtesy of Lisa Orban and the lovely folks at Indies United Publishing House.

This relaunch of the book I wrote by mistake, while trying to finish a short story based on the word “stuff”, is the result of a lot of hard work by Indies United; including a lovely new cover by Danielle Johnston, (with a rework of my original artwork on the back) custom chapter headings, new fonts and actual editing!

So for those who missed it the first time round or for any of you who were patiently waiting for the definitive edition, now’s your chance to snap up a copy ahead of the official release date.

The Wrong Stuff is available for Kindle as well as in paperback, so why not keep one for yourself and give one as a gift. I’m sure the Valentine bookworm in your life would appreciate it.

The reviews said…

***** “The Wrong Stuff” is a fast paced, rollicking, adventure story, originally created on-line by Guy Thair using an unconventional creative method – each week a fellow blogger would give a writing ‘prompt’ (often only one word), which Thair would use to help improvise the next stage of his story. This resulted, (along with the author’s obvious skill), with a fresh, spontaneous and lively tale, told with infectious enthusiasm and dark humour.
Fans of thrillers, sci-fi, or just a darn good read will not be disappointed ! Check out this paperback gem”

**** I am a total book worm but rarely give anything 5 stars, so 4 stars is very good, coming from me! I did enjoy this read. Fast-moving and surprising, in places quite gripping, even though it was not my usual type of choice. I thought the story was cleverly crafted and has a satisfying conclusion. I’d be interested in seeing more from this author.

***** “Great book – easy to read, difficult to put down .I am am not a book reader but I finished it in two sittings loved it

***** The Wrong Stuff” is a fresh, rollicking sci fi adventure, with lovable characters of just about every description. It was written as a collection of responses to random word cues (beginning with “stuff,”) the awareness of which adds a conspiratorial dimension to the reading experience. The plot is a verbal puzzle, crafted piece by piece, and the pieces dovetail nicely! The result is a seamlessly approachable, darkly funny style.
Heroine Hannah Meredith, keenly instinctive bargain hunter, buys an odd box from an auction. Immediately afterward, her life becomes far more complicated as she discovers the story behind her purchase, and behind the other parties interested in it. Chased by corporate criminals seeking world domination, she teams up with a surprisingly effective crew of loyal misfits to preempt an economic coup that would prove devastating to the global economy. The job gets trickier and trickier, as scientific marvels derail simple solutions. Hannah and her new allies pull off some elegant footwork as they try to outscheme, outpace, and give a lesson in humanity to the greedy Powers that Be.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author’s vivid, relatable storytelling inspires genuine affection for the characters. I was so invested in them that I turned page after page just to make sure justice was being served. “The Wrong Stuff” is impossible to put down!
