In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”
Like most ex-Soviet Metros, the stations are very deep and vividly decorated.
Older British cars that have survived may be cared for and cosseted, older Soviet cars are used as daily beasts of burden with heavy duty roof racks to carry heavy loads.
These sparrows I spotted while waiting for a bus at Liberty Square in Tbilisi.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Express Yourself.”
I have many different ideas for “express yourself”: flowers laid in memory of 9 April 1989, an artist with his work, an irate taxi driver, my granddaughter Ana expressing her creativity with Lego, a swallow expressing itself in its call, some neighbours launching a fire heart into the air to express their love , a girl unable to express herself like her friends having no smartphone to hand and me expressing myself with these images (my take on the world).
There are many ways to express yourself:
Express your sorrow with flowers:
2. Express yourself through art (I’ve seen lots of other entries depicting arts and crafts like this one Joy)…
3. Express your anger, the red mist, through expressions, hand gestures and bad language:
4. Express yourself creatively:
5. Express yourself in song:
6. Express your love with a dramatic gesture:
Express yourself…you don’t need a smartphone to do it…
I had to crouch down to get this shot so they would be silhouetted against a grey sky and not a messy background of buildings.
…and here a single sparrow isolated by cropping from his friends on Twitter 😉
“Rarely will you meet anyone so jealous as a teacher. Year after year students tumble along like the waters of a river. They flow away, and only the teacher is left behind, like some deep buried rock at the bottom of the current. Although he may tell others of his hopes, he doesn’t dream of them himself.”
The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe
First frosty morning of the Winter, January 20. Everything runs a little late in Georgia.
Zen masters of serenity, I came across this pair of felines in a busy marketplace, completely unperturbed about the hustle and bustle around them.
