RDP Friday: Lurking

Did you ever have a feeling that someone or something was watching you? First of all I heard a sort of whirring sound, as if there was a motor bike approaching. It was then I saw a shadow on the ground and then it arose. This was my first sighting of a drone within almost touching distance and it followed my every move. It was then I saw a lady with something that looked like an enlarge mobile phone – and she was steering it. This was in the senior home where Mr. Swiss is. She was visiting said she got it for a reduced price. Today you are never safe, there is always something lurking and watching and now they are selling them as bargains.

RDP Friday: Crunchy

It became a crunchy afternoon
It really made me swoon
When I left home it was completely dry
But I did not feel comfortable when I glanced at the sky
I arrived at the home where my Mr. Swiss lives
And the heavens opened with plenty of wizz
It was not just rain, but a complete weather bunch
The hailstones cascaded, what a large crunch

RDP Friday: Purple

Nothing purple here, but I did get some good photos on a local building site of people. I have no idea what was happening but I got curious when I saw this drone flying around.

And then I saw these people standing on the top of the crane.

Actually they were all over the crane. This guy even gave me a wave when he saw me taking photos from my garden.

Eventually they all descended through the precarious built metal ladder, and the drone accompanied them on the way down.

RDP Friday: Pointy Shoes

Shoes in Marks and Spencers

Fashion always repeats itself, although to my time we squeezed our toes into the so-called “Winkelpickers” with stiletto heels. It was perhaps a little painful, but who cared, it was fashion and as a teenager in London I certainly did not want to be left out. I took this photo about 20 years ago in a London store, yes the fashion returned, but not exactly the same. The heels were just as high, but thicker However, the points had returned.

And today? We seem to live in training shoes, with laces. No more points at the front. Today you can even get married in such shoes, although in white of course, to fit the occasion.

Even if you are working on a building site, just relax your feet in your trainers.

And some just go one step further, just let your feet feel free.

RDP Friday: Carved

Carved? No-one carved anything, we turtles have no need for carving. I fought my way through the egg shell and this is how I appeared. Each of us has a different design. I am one of the special types and even have some colour in my carved shell. Note the edge to the shell, a good contrast in design. If I knew my mum or dad I am sure they would be proud of me, but they were already gone and just left my egg and I hatched it all on my own.
