RDP Monday: Kenspeckle (eyecatching)

Mr- Swiss went to the dentist – nothing too bad, a fitting for his new teeth He was away for about an hour. Then I heard the key in the door and this figure entered. Was this my Mr. Swiss, the man I married 52 years ago, the one I trusted, fed and spoilt all these years? They were his glasses and his clothes, even his shape. I had to take a photo in case I would have to report that a stranger had broken into the home – but no worry. He was not welding a knife and as soon as he had removed the mask it was my familiar Mr. Swiss. Today you can never be certain, there are too many masked people – and now he has a wonderful new set of teeth. No, the dentist did not make two extra large teeth at the top corners with eye catching points on the edge and I do not have puncture marks on my neck.

RDP Monday: Bluff

We don’t have any oceans or seas in Switzerland, just a few lakes here and there and so no geographical formations that could be known as a “bluff”. However, we have mountains and this is one of the local slopes, the Balmberg. At the top there is a cross, although I have no idea why. I asked Mr. Swiss and he found many mountains in Switzerland have a cross on top. Perhaps this was a bluff.

RDP Monday: Melancholy

It is a day to be melancholic. There is a large grey-black cloud hovering over my head. There are even raindrops in the air. I have nothing to distract me. The insects have even disappeared, not even a slug slugging its way over the garden. Birds have been scarce for some time, although my online store is telling me I would have a special discount on their food, problem being there is no birdseed to buy. So here I am sitting in the kitchen listening to classical music on my ear pods and hoping that something will break the monotony. My camera is hungry for photos, but there is nothing to take a photo of. I even stumbled amongst the growth of our wild meadow to reach the neighbour’s garden where she has flowers to photograph. Who knows perhaps the cloud might fall from the sky leaving a patch of blue behind.

RDP Monday: Luminosity

I have many sunrises and sunsets showing the liminous side of life, but then I discovered this photo in my archives. It is the cathedral in our local town of Solothurn and it seems I had taken the photo just at the right time to capture the sun illuminating the roof and golden lettering over the entrance to the cathedral. The cathedral is at the end of the main street in the town so everything else was in the shade.
