Thursday’s Special

Paula over at Lost in Translation has given us some words…five, actually. So here goes…..for all five:

Jaunty (seen some years ago in the park in Madrid, a distinctly jaunty spring in his step):

Rollerblading in the park

Whiff (this little fella seems to have detected a whiff, though he was pretty fishy whiffy himself):




Torre Guinigi, Lucca, Italy


Given that sociability has health benefits, perhaps this idleness was a good idea

Well, I hope Paula is impressed with this little lot! More words here.


  1. Very well done, Sue. Love the first one in particular. And that fishy whiffy otter!

  2. You got the essence of the words just right, Sue. I really like the punch of that luminous green. Brightens up a dull and wet evening.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. All so pertinent( and beautiful)!

  4. Oh you are good, the first is my favourite, that guy ticks the jaunty box brilliantly!

  5. Oh la la! I appreciate them all, I really do, but am really excited to see Guinigi again 🙂 THANK YOU.

  7. Oh, well done you! I love your first image – he looks to be having a great time 🙂

    That wall … is just luminous! Wow! But I like he other pictures too.

  9. You are spot on with the challenges. And I love the images, particularly luminosity with its strong graphical play.

  10. Somebody is late! Look at that guy checking his wristwatch 🙂 Whiff is very cute and that’s a neat capture, but I really love your ascending shot. 🙂 Happy weekend, Sue!

      Thanks, Jo! It’s a quiet weekend as I went down with an infection a few day s ago, and had to attend emergency clinic last evening,…good friends are priceless in such situations, and on the mend now! Hope you have a good weekend xx

  11. You certainly had all that covered Sue! I love the first picture. 🙂

  12. Jaunty old man and the fishy, whiffy otter are my picks too 😉

  13. A very impressive gallery, Sue. The ‘idleness’ photo really made me chuckle. 🙂
