Loud colours excite
Vintage grey tones bring silence
And an eerie calm
This week’s photo prompt is CLOSE, crumbs I was stuck, what would you have photographed? And then I walked outside with my early morning cuppa and realised I live in a ‘Close’.
Definition – Close: a residential street without through access.
With a bit of playing around I got what I think is a vintage photo look – it looks a bit 1950s to me – what do you think? A bit spooky?
The Haiku prompt words, SILENCE and LOUD together with the photo, set off this train of thoughts inspired by summer’s early mornings, my favourite time of day……
The Close lies silent in the early morning light
And slowly comes to life with gentle stirrings
Birdsong and the soft footstep of dog walkers passing
As I take my tea to see which new flower opens.
Then, not too loud, my neighbours start their day
And chat in driveways checking all is well
We keep a distance and we keep in touch
Very different and with much in common
English village life, a challenge sometimes,
Has a richness, complex and connected
Weaving us all together in unseen ways,
A pleasant way to rub along for all our future days.
Next week’s Photo Prompt is SCENT. What would you choose to photograph?
