He drew in some air
Lifted the horn to his lips
The music played out
Like an innocent soul
Playing against the night sky.
Notes drifting on the breeze
Over rooftops and into open windows
Accompanying young lovers, and
Soothing the restless minds,
Of those lacking in sleep
A tear to the eye of some,
As the music sparks a memory
Bringing comfort to the lonely.
Sun bathed flowers
While away the hours.
Stands and poses.
Bursts of colour,
Sings to the garden lover.
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
This weeks Fun Foto Challenge from Ceenphotography is Dark Red – maroons or Burgundy.
I liked this rose, particularly the blemish!
I am pretty sure that the rose variety is called “Ruby Wedding”

With the Weekly Photo Challenge of “edge”, I was immediately drawn back to the great Terry Prachett..
The disc, being flat, has no real horizon. Any adventurous sailor who got funny ideas from staring at eggs and oranges for too long and set out for the antipodes soon learned that the reason why distant ships sometimes looked as though they were disappearing over the edge of the world was that they were disappearing over the edge of the world.
This photo, which was taken in Prague, to me just looks like penguins disappearing over the edge of the world in an orderly fashion.
Over at Ceen Photography – the topic for the black & white challenge is “close up”. Hope that this up close and personal view of my old Kodak camera fits the bill!.
Check out Cee’s photographs and lots of great entries to the challenge here
Living here on Exmoor, the landscape views can be spectacular, if a little bleak when its grey. This was taken on a lovely Spring day.
