One-liner Wednesday and JusJoJan 18th

Hooray! I had to reset the timer that switches on my decking lights… setting it to light up a good half hour later. This is how I measure the return to lighter days.

This mini-jot and almost one-liner is part of Linda G Hill’s weekly and annual blogging challenge. Click here to visit Linda, read her guidelines on taking part, and say “Hi”.

#JusJoJan 10th – Never the same twice!


“The biggest cliché in photography is sunrise and sunset.” – Catherine Opie.

How sad that two of nature’s most beautiful parts of the day should be reduced to photographic clichés, unoriginal and overused. Fortunately for me, I still get a real buzz out of them whenever I’m fortunate enough to witness either of them while armed with a camera (usually my phone!).

The image above was taken at sunrise, floating above the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon, looking back over the Nile to Luxor. Not a cliché in sight, in my opinion!

Happy Friday Eve everyone xx

Thanks to Linda G Hill for hosting JusJoJan and to Toortsie for supplying today’s word ‘sunrise’.
