Pick and read! – Photo for the Week – 41 – Books

This week Bren challenged us with:

The theme for this week is Books.

So a Photo I have used before, of some of the shelves in our house, but edited in a new way.  It is sometimes hard to choose what book to read next, I live in a house surrounded by books, I work with books, and sometimes the choose seems daunting, indeed I sometimes walk through a literary desert where I do not read for a few weeks! In fact I am thirsty, and parched now, this is something that stresses my wife out :).  But then I will return to the  haven of the pages sometimes immersing myself in the safety of 2 or 3 imagined worlds at a time, or the imagined truth of ‘fact’. However it is easy to slip from thirst to drowning, to loose oneself entirely, and I cannot swim! Sometimes I need to come to the surface and breathe.

Grass chairs – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: July 18, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

I was in two minds if I should post this for the pull up a seat challenge, but in the end it was just too odd not to post here!

Reading – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge – March 28, 2019

While I do not rate this as an oddball from the perspective that I have taken it, it is after all a sculpture that I quite liked the look of.  I think it can qualify as an oddball due to the subject matter – Person sat reading on top of an oxen, is it comfy? Does it stay still? Perhaps they are reading a map and are lost!
