BIBPC the Fifth, Category Seven (Time is Bugging Me)

Seven. That means the end is near.
Mm… that came out wrong.

So apparently this is the seventh category of BIBPC and there are… *counts* zero categories left. Wow. Time is annoying. Fast and annoying. Like bugs.

Uh… that doesn’t matter. What matters is that Pineapple now has 607 points and hasn’t lost the lead. Yaaaaay. *confetti*

Dark and Light

The cold breath of the moonlight
Ran its fingers through my hair,
The dark sky speckled with silver
Exhaled its fragrance in the air.

When I thought about that moment
As I lay awake at night,
I realised stars couldn’t shine without darkness
But could they shine without their light?

Books, Flowers etcetera// BIBPC the Fifth, Category Three

Yesterday a friend and I decided to have a little photography session, just for a change. Then again, the third category for BIBPC was out, so I thought I’d have some fun.

We found this neat grassy area for a backdrop and laid out books. There were little flowers of white and violet, so that was a bonus. I bid my time experimenting with the 50mm lens, my favourite of the lot.

And, miracle of miracles, I got a shot worthy of putting here.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, was my expedition with the books and the camera bag. The focus is a little off, maybe I could’ve done with a couple tweaks, but this is good enough, I suppose.

Now, because I didn’t think it very wise to put it in the middle of my little story, the current status of team Pineapple.

We’re second to Watermelon right now, lagging by three points, but we’ll catch up. ūüėČ I also put in some extra pictures for the last category for the people who didn’t enter one, so we should be okay.

*UPDATE*

Extra Pictures:

Also, I’ve got a bit of news! I’ve created a page especially for BIBPC which you can find here. The pictures will be exclusive of the story and other things I may happen to blab about in my regular BIBPC posts, so in case you’d just like a look at my pictures you can get them there.

Have a great day!

A Brief Intro to Natural Captures// DIY Pocket Poem

I must say that my photography has increased a LOT these days. Mainly because I’m on vacation.

And I have too many favourite pictures to put into separate posts, one by one, all with detailed and organized notes and summaries. I mean, who even reads all that?

So here I am, introducing to you Natural Captures, a two-part photo series of unedited, original snaps of nature and wildlife.

This series will take place¬†any two randomly selected days in May. Probably because I don’t stick to blogging plans very much.

Here’s what the featured image will look like:

Look at that little chickadee!!

Now that that’s done, let’s move on to the more interesting bit.Read More »

BIBPC the Fourth, Category {Perched}

Have you noticed that time¬†has flown by so quick that it’s already the last category of BIBPC?

Team Fox is leading right now, with 499 points, but we have to keep the good work up if we want to win this thing. And I’m sure we can. GO TEAM FOX!

The theme this time is

Animal Close-Ups

Well, we haven’t got many animals around (not ones worth photographing anyway), so I picked a picture of a bird I had taken a while back.

STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

On my vacation back in December, I spotted this little bird perched on a piece of wire. I took a few pictures of it, and I believe it counts as a close-up since I zoomed as much as I could.

I also made a poster for BIBPC the Fifth to make up for the points I’m going to lose for the quality ūüėõ

I guess that’ll do.


Until next time!

Adventure

Will you climb mountains with me
And trek through the Amazon?
Do you mind if stones hurt you?
Do you get pricked by thorns?

Let’s hang off jungle vines
And canoe through the Nile.
Let’s run with the gazelles
Let’s live amongst the wild.

I’m going on an adventure
And if you want to come too
Let nature be your gear
And let the Earth be your shoes.

Lost

I wandered distant lands
In my distant dreams
Alongside sky-high ridges
And crystal clear streams.

I rambled dark forests
Fields bearing golden wheat
And thorny lands where prickles
Set themselves in my feet.

I wandered woods and deserts
Felt blizzards and licked frost
I wandered all the world before
I realized I was lost.

Solitude

People always ask me
If I feel alone
With no one around me
For a reason they’ve never known.

Is it really solitude
When with the wind I sing?
When the leafy shelters welcome me
In the early flight of spring?

The hills debate me every day
The rivers share their tales
The grass tickles my bare feet
As I chatter with the gales.

I speak with every passing bird
I laugh with every stone
So now tell me, will I ever
Live my life alone?
