Playing with pictures

February 21, 2013

I have been very busy so far this year. I have a new camera and I have treated myself to Lightroom 4 to edit the pics. I'm still learning how to use it but here are the first two pics that I've played with.

I'm also working on an eBook celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who in haiku. My working title for it is Fifty, Eleven, Seventeen (50 years, 11 Doctors and 17 syllables). There will be at least one haiku for each story with some other haiku for returning monsters, companions and a narrative of the history of the show. I hope I'll get it done in time for the 50th anniversary this November.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you'll enjoy the pics.

A Christmas Poem

December 22, 2011

I have been a little short of blogging time recently (busiest time of year at work). But I wanted to do something special for Christmas and this is what I have done.

I hope you will like it and watch this space for more possible exciting news regarding an illustrated version of the poem.

I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas and thank you so much for reading my words.

Thank you for reading

Have a wonderful Christmas

And a great New Year


Winter haiku

Cold winter evening
The snow continues to fall
Forming white blanket


Doctor Who Haiku (The Doctors)

November 25, 2009

A grey haired old man
At times very crotchety
Susan’s grandfather

Is this man a fool?
Or is he a genius?
This cosmic hobo

A tall dapper chap
And a member of UNIT
As an adviser

A long woolen scarf
Jelly babies aplenty
He’s all teeth and curls

A cricketer’s garb
Celery on his lapel
And a heart of gold

With very loud clothes
He never goes unnoticed
Looks just like Maxil

Another clown or
A dark manipulator
More than what he seems

He rose from the dead
To save the world once again
From evil Master

Fresh from the Time War
With a strong Northern accent
He was fantastic

Full of energy
Is he the last of his race?
Or are there others

Your footsteps echo
As you walk down the hallway
A final farewell


Autumn haiku

October 23, 2009

The birds have all flown
Tree is alone once again
Now shedding its leaves

The strong autumn winds
Cause the leaves to fall like rain
Which is falling too

The autumn leaves fall
Like tears of parting lovers
Tree quietly weeps
