Are you living on barbed wire?

Ladybirds a-roaming, St Albans, October 2020

This particular stretch of barbed wire has attracted me and my camera a few times this year – it has been visited by butterflies, dandelion clocks, leaves, birds and the sunlight. Yesterday, it was the turn of a couple of ladybirds.

I was looking for a personal photo project to keep me occupied for the next few months and “living on barbed wire” might be it – it seems to fit well with this trying year.
I’m not entirely sure where I’ll go with it. Maybe it will just be a diary of nature, or maybe it will be more adventurous and more about us humans.
To get me thinking more creatively, if any of you talented writer bloggers are tempted to explore, I’d love to see your ideas in poetry or short stories.
I’m thinking of mixing images and words and it may turn into a display or zine – in which case I’ll come to you to see if you mind your work being included. No promises as I don’t know how this will turn out, but it could be a fun challenge as we move into winter up north, and probably excessive heat down south.

Now time for a coffee and a 6-word-blog-roam for me. Happy Saturday everyone.

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

    • I wondered that. They seemed very happy – I had seen them as I set off on my walk and they were still there an hour later. I assume it was warm in the sun. I’ll have to check next time I walk that way and see if it’s s regular haunt.


    • I hope you had a great trip, Janet. I had a very wired day, but not of the barbed type. I am buried under work at the moment and my laptop has developed serious problems. Blogging is ok, but Word and my current documents are refusing to cooperate. I had a day of reboots and much frustration. Today may be the same 😦
