Today we are beginning a new challenge at
As always, projects of all formats are allowed, and the challenge runs for 2 weeks.
I made a Layout showing the story of the Ancient Mariner,
an epic poem from Samuel Taylor Coleridge, an
English poet who lived from 1772 - 1834.
The poem tells the story of a long sea journey, where a sailor shoots down an albatross and brings bad luck on the ship....
One of the most famous quotes from the poem is the
sentence, 'Water, water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink; water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink' . It is a loooong poem, not just the
2 verses shown here! The verse which inspired my project is:
'All in a hot and copper sky, the bloody sun, at noon, Right up above the mast did stand, No bigger than the moon.'
I made a hybrid piece, using a photo as background. The illustration of
the ancient mariner is from Mary Shelley, courtesy of Wikipedia.

Yesterday evening the clouds looked rather threatening.
The flowers are from a neighbour's hedge:
I had to wait for the tram to cross the road, so had time to take
a photo of it:
The horses were happy, as always.
And fitting to our theme, plenty of water:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by:
