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…
“One swallow doesn’t make a summer” but as its August and day time temperatures regularly hit
40°C, I think it is definitely summer. Yesterday our windows were wide open and I heard a lot of twittering outside, on investigating I found four swallows on our laundry pole.
I love watching the swallows fly around but it also makes me sad, as I remember watching swallows with my late ex-wife one September in the French lake district.
One swallow family are nesting on the third floor of our apartment block.
Capturing them in flight is more tricky, as they move so quickly.
The swallow has a high slightly mechanic “t-weet” and a twittering song uttered on the wing or on a vantage point like our laundry pole.
