Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Crooked or Squiggly Lines

WWE 7 a bwWWE 7 b bwWhile I wouldn’t say any of the lines in these photos are crooked, I do think that the lines of the water itself, and in the lines of reflected images, are definitely squiggly. The color version will probably show up in Jez’ WWE challenge, but that’s another day. Today is Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge with the topic crooked or squiggly lines.


Jez’s WWE Challenge: December 26, 2019

I’m moving a little faster today. Here’s my contribution to one of my favorite challenges; that is, Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere.

WWE 2.jpgThis photograph was taken on December 20, 2019. It represents a new perspective on one of my most favorite places in Annapolis-  Weems Creek. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting a few more WWE’s from Weems. Next on the agenda will be the Chesapeake Bay itself, rather than one of its tributaries.

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Spiritual

Pirouette 3
Pirouette enthroned

When Queen Pirouette opened her eyes, all she could see at first was a blur of bright colors. As she slowly regained consciousness, she realized that all those colors were the garments of the people crowded into her bedroom. Her head pounded. Her mouth was dry. She wanted to speak, but didn’t seem to have enough breath to utter a sound, not even a whimper.

Is this what it is like to be dead? She asked herself.

“There, there, my darling…” It was the voice of King GarGar, her husband, her soulmate. “You’ve had a nasty fall. The horse…” His voice trailed off, not wanting to say the words.

“Is this what the Cardinal meant when he spoke of ‘spiritual experiences?'” Pirouettes first words in two days were of her old enemy, the Cardinal, long dead.

Stained glass 7When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corninthians 13:11-13.
