Rosemary

I think.

It looks like rosemary.

Probably is not rosemary.

I like the way that this plant stretches out, reaching for something.

Most likely sunlight.

I hope you enjoy.

Darling Harbour Night Capture

Last week whilst under the weather I went for a walk and took some photos, as one does when they have a strong desire to exit the house.

There were other things that I needed to take care of, but photography came along.

Anyway, here’s a lazy long exposure that I took.

There’s some vegetation in the shot that was close by. I do like that it’s there as it slightly alters the scene.

Other than that, I do like the way the Ferris Wheel was captured as well as the light patterns both on the water and the buildings.

I hope you enjoy.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 374: That is the Hope

Here I am. I am here. At work of course.

It is far more quiet than I expected that it would be, but such is the way of things when you are at work and there are no calls to take.

Well, there are some, but they are far and few between. Hope fully this means that I will get a lot of stuff that is not related to work done.

That is the hope.

Why?

Probably due to a lot of stuff outside of work that needs to be done and my complete and utter desire to be as lazy as possible right now.

Still, I shall project the images in my mind to somewhere else in order to envision another world and another place to be and thus a land of fantasy will be born, but hopefully it will be fantasy based on reality rather than fantasy based on fantasy.

Is it a fantasy if I am thinking of a place that exists and projecting myself as being there in the images in my mind?

It probably is still fantasy. Still, at the moment it is a fantasy that I want to have as a reality, but sometimes you don’t always get what you want and that is okay, for if we always got what we wanted, then there would probably be a lot less satisfied and fulfilled at the end of the day. It could also lead  to a  lot of complacency and that is not something that people should become accustomed to, if they have the ability to avoid it as much as possible.

Now, where was I?

I do not know, but I do know that I am sitting at my desk and I am typing away, which is not something out of the ordinary for me at this point. If I continue to write about the same thing over and over, do I really keep on growing as a writer?

Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t. I do not know right now, but I do know that in trying to get this under five minutes, there is going to be a lot of crap and repetition to read, for my success does not rely on the quality, but the quantity and how fast I can reach the end. It is a race to the bottom and I am the only person participating in this silly little run that I have set up for myself.

Who will reach the wend before I do? Will it be the timer? Will it be the orange juice that I desperately wish that I had right now, sipping away  whilst thinking about the things that I indeed do think about on a daily basis?

Will it be my massive ego?

There is only one way to find out and there will be no quarter for those who do not see the way forward is the only way given the circumstances of me tripping over my fingers!

Possibly. Who knows?

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:14:55

Hmm.

I guess this is kind of works. Possibly.

Written at work.

Behold! Some smoothies!

Rant About People Getting onto a Bus

So the other day I was catching a bus. I cannot remember as to why I was catching the bus. I was probably heading to work. I imagine that that was indeed the case.

I was catching the bus to get to work. I think.

Wait.

I was waiting for the bus so I could get to work. The bus arrived and I saw that someone was getting off so I waited for them to get off before I hopped on.

It seemed that the other people waiting at the bust stop did not seem to have the same priorities. One of them hopped on, saw that the person was getting off, paused for a brief moment and then walked past them. Then everyone else waiting walked passed the person trying to get off the bus, leading to them having wait before they could get off the bus.

Since when the fuck was it that people thought that the best action is to, instead of waiting for people to get off a vehicle, walk on and not let them get off until there’s space for them to get off the vehicle?

Where did people’s manners and patience go?

The fuck is wrong with these people?

I know it’s not a big issue, but it’s not that hard to be polite and show a little bit of respect for your fellow person and let them exit public transport before you decide to get onto public transport.

It is not that hard.

Now that I’ve said all that, I think I do know what is wrong with people who think that this is an appropriate action.

I think that people want it both ways. They want to be able to be as selfish and willingly oblivious to those around them so they can benefit themselves, regardless of how much of an inconvenience they make themselves whilst also wanting people to kowtow to them so that they themselves are not inconvenienced.

I have a suggestion for people who think that this is okay. Just one. For now.

How about you show a bit of respect for your fellow person and realise that you are as small and insignificant as everyone else on the planet?

I know that it’s pointless ranting, but this kind of behaviour really pisses me off.

Statue of Queen Victoria

Not too sure as to what the goal was here.

I think that I was just trying to get a good photo of the statue.

I think I may have made the image a little too dark, but I do like the way the light tone makes the details of the statue appear.

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s Monochrome Madness for this week.

I strongly recommend checking it out to see what other people have submitted, as well as checking out Leanne’s work outside of M.M.

I also recommend submitting and being part of M.M. It’s a fun, community-driven thing.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

Silver Gull Goes to the Water

Another test photo.

I don’t think I did too good a job both of processing and taking the photo.

I think it’s a bit too bright on the bird.

With that being said, I do think that this does give a sense of motion and form.

I hope you enjoy.
