The challenge for this week is all about motion… This series of photos were taken during a holiday in France a few years ago. They feature my youngest son in various stages of running and jumping into the pool. My daughter can also be spied (already in the pool) in various stages of gleeful disbelief…the water was sooo cold and she couldn’t believe he was going to launch himself, full pelt into it’s icey depths instead of gingerly easing himself in like she (and I) would! Eldest son on the lounger in the background…clearly too laid back to care either way!

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post asks us to look at perspective…
“Photos aren’t objective – they show what we want them to show”

Time’s running out… how could I not post a few photo’s of Mutley for the weekly photo challenge with a theme of ‘companionable’ it would feel so wrong of me not to! Mutley is, after all, my constant companion… she is loyal, never judges, makes me smile and is always totally ecstatic every time I come home!

I had just made myself a lovely lunch and a cup of green tea… everything was arranged and I was just about to get comfy to enjoy some peace and quiet… apparently not!
I heard some noise in the fireplace and upon inspection found some soot had fallen out and onto the rug… as I stood and watched, more and more kept falling down and out in front of me. There was a few moments of nothing then again more fell out… Ohhh nooo… I looked at Mutley, Mutley looked at me… and promptly took off upstairs! Fine protector she is!!!
I was left looking at the fireplace and said out loud “please don’t let anything dead fall out!” and then “actually, no, please don’t let anything live fall out!!!” Literally two seconds later a pigeon landed unceremoniously in the fireplace and took flight into the room, missing my head by two inches as I ducked and ran for the door! I flew for my camera whilst screeching to my son… “There’s a pigeon flying around the lounge!”
My son arrived on the scene a little bleary eyed and dishevelled, having just woken up (he’s 17… say no more) armed only with an old childhood dressing up Spiderman glove, recently found in a loft clearout!
Flash back… to when he wanted a German Shepherd and promised to walk her and pick up her poop… Ha! Not falling for that one again!
Of course after she realised it was only a bird, not something sinister and could hear it flapping around she tried her best to get back into the room, nearly tripping me up everytime I retreated with my camera when the pigeon flew in my direction… he had already proved he wasn’t great at navigating!
Armed now with some more sensible gloves, my son managed after several attempts to throw my youngest son’s jacket over the pigeon so that he could pick it up and carry it out…
My son ducks to the left while the pigeon makes a break for it to the right!
He looks a bit bewildered but focused on his destination towards the rooftops and hopefully away from chimneys… mine anyway! 🙂

Tala (Mutley) quite likes all this blogging lark and decided she would like a side line to my blog… ‘Mutleys’ pic of the day!’ So that she can showcase all her wonderfulness!!!
