Bastet’s Photo Shadorma – August 9, 2014

Hello World!

I’m running late this morning so let’s get right down to work!

Jen from Blog it or Lose it!  Sent me a photo which I think will really inspire you all today to write an interesting shadorma:

For you first timers,  a shadorma is composed of six non-rhyming lines (sestina or sextet) and the syllable pattern is 3-5-3-3-7-5.  It can have as many stanzas as you like, just as long as each stanza follows the syllable pattern mentioned above .  You have a week to create you poems so be patient and let the photo inspire you!  Or use your own photograph or art work.

Once you’ve written your post tag:  Shadorma and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, then put your info onto the Mr. Linky app!  If you ping me back, I’ll be able to read your post asap because I will be notified that you’ve written the post (not so with Mr. Linky)…That’s all there is to it!

Thanks for dropping by … Ciao, Georgia

 

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

        Places like this business are uncommon, that’s for sure — I get a bad case of “attention disorder” just walking through the doors. So much to see.

        I can only just imaginge how the light would play on those glass globes!

        It was gorgeous — but it made getting a good photo tricky. Had to trash a bunch of photos — weird glares, weird backlighting, weird bleached areas — but I finally got this one. Phew! Was doing it surreptitiously too which made the whole thing trickier.

        Lol glass is a pain to photograph, I know only too well as hubby does all his artwork on sheets of glass … drives me mad when I have to do a service on his work! Doing it surrepititiously too … wow, lucky to have gotten anything!

        I don’t think she would have said anything because she’s used to seeing me – I get my gargoyles there! It’s sort of like the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for gargoyles. And I bought a gargoyle after taking the photos. So …..

        Glad you find glass tricky too. I was going insane with it!

        Are you kidding … glass is one of the hardest things to try to photograph … reflections are terrible and they pick up shadows that only a camera can see, I guess we compensate. Next time just ask her to be able to take the photos … people love the idea that their stuff will eventually find its way on a blog.

        I will probably do that. So far people have been pretty good about photos — the drive-in people were overjoyed. 🙂

        It was interesting … looking at the “finished” photo of the glass globes … so many reflections and shadows I hadn’t noticed. Somewhere between the eye and the brain we get a much different image!

        I’ve always found that people are like that … they feel thrilled that you find their place interesting enough to want ot photograph it … and if you tell them you blog, the gush with pleasure.

        Yes, that’s the strange thing about glass … we just kind of blot out the excess or something.

    Is that glass? I can barely make it out on this small screen?

      Yep … I certainly think so … lots of glass globes. I think if you click on the photo you can see it better.

      Tons and tons and tons of glass globes — it’s overwhelming — and so beautiful — so many reflections. 🙂
