Fashions have done more harm than revolutions.


An odd place to PARK. Geilston Bay, June 2010.

What a place to PARK! That should be a ticket…

Yes, Theme Thursday today, and PARK is our theme. I was going to go with “St Johns PARK” – the new worksite – but I have already just done that.

Ideas are often like that; they come and go too soon.

Which leaves me with today’s photograph. This poignant little vessel, stricken and forsaken on its side like a metaphorical Minke whale stranded on the pebbly-beach of misplaced and premature creative expressions.

Artistic endeavours can get quite messy sometimes, to the point that not even the most ingenious of metaphors can redeem it.

What You should take from this is that the tricky Theme Thursday topic can be fudged with just a little bit of imagination.

To PARK a boat? Nay,nay,nay. To moor a boat; Please! She may well be beached to scrap her hull. Or perhaps to recaulk the timbers. Or maybe even to patch a hole in the hull. But then again perhaps the tide just went out and left her high and dry.

You always inhabit a parallel universe. I love how you respond to Themes. Totally off-the-wall.

I love, love, love the reflection. This would make a perfect shot for the Weekend Reflections theme.
