How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
Robert Louis Stevenson
My very literal interpretation of this weeks Photo Challenge. I am lucky that I live in a part of the UK were the historic and glamorous Age of the Steam is still very popular, with enthusiasts, volunteers and public supporting the restoration and appreciation of these glorious beasts. Tiny, the only surviving broad gauge locomotive lives at South Devon Railway Museum. Further details here
Last week as I was driving home, I could see the sun going down over the moors. Rushed back to grab my camera and managed to get this shot from my garden.
So I consider myself very lucky that this is my version of Local, which happens to be the theme for this weeks photo challenge
Everyone loves a Teddy bear – especially the bright yellow bear sitting in the window of the children’s library in Varna

This weeks photo challenge from the Daily Post asked us to show our interpretation of water. So this is a drawing of a Water Iris using watercolour pencils. Maybe a little too far outside of the box ?

We are immortals until we die
When our final breath leaves with a sigh.
Our last cuss, sworn
No more we see the dawn
Our bodies abandoned, just lie
Soul set free to fly.
Like a bird, take flight
Into darkness or light?
