Tickled Pink

Couldn’t resist the… ummmmm… RED  (not pink) tips to these leafy type planted wotsits…

Anyway, I have a question…  Although I tend to favour landscapes and the odd bit of urbex, I’ve always tried to keep my photography as varied as possible, and even lately throw in the odd bit of artwork to boot… But here’s the rub, I look at some blogs where they have a very specific area of expertise / focus, and a very consistent feel to them, and can’t help but feel they look MUCH nicer than mine… More professional and tied together… To me, my blog is just… kinda messy… and really doesn’t hold together too well because of the variety to the things I post…

So what do you think ???… I know a blog is a personal thing, and should definitely reflect the individual, and that variety is a GOOD thing. The downside I guess though is the whole “Jack of all trades, Master of none” scenario….  Anyway, I also prefer things to have a certain flow… and don’t really feel that with my own blog…

I don’t intend to change my blog, as my desire to try all things photographic / artistic is as strong as it ever was, but I’d love to know how other people feel… Do you prefer a more consistent subject matter and feel to a blog, or do you prefer one that tries to throw in a bit of anything and everything ???…

ps… May not be around much next week, as I have a little trip arranged, and depending on wifi access etc, commenting will be sporadic, and posting will likely be non existent… Hopefully though I’ll have some new material when I come back… :)

Birds Or Bugs

Well everybody else seems to be doing it, and I have really needed to make better use of mine, so I’ve given in to a spot of MMM… (March Macro Madness), and given a bit of spring weather this weekend I attached said macro, and went in search of all things tiny…

The real question to me though… and I KNOW given the geographical location of majority of my blog buddies that it’s an argument I’ve already lost regardless… BUT, I’m never one to be defeated so easily…. lol… SO….Ladybirds or Ladybugs ???…

I know I’m right though, cos wikipedia says so… lol… to quote… “The name “ladybird” originated in Britain where the insects became known as “Our Lady‘s bird” or the “Lady beetle”.[8][9] Mary (Our Lady) was often depicted wearing a red cloak in early paintings and the spots of the seven spot ladybird (the most common in Europe) were said to symbolise herseven joys and seven sorrows.[8] Common names in other European languages have the same association (the German name Marienkäfer translates to “Marybeetle” or, literally, Mary-chafer).[10] In the United States the name was adapted to “ladybug”.[10]

SEE… LadyBIRD !!… Ladybug was just an adaptation of the correct name… lol… ;)

I WIN !!… especially as I can edit anyones comments, to make sure they agree with me… lol… :p

View large, and tickle him under the chin if you dare… He won’t bite… much… ;)
