Ailsa’s theme this week is ‘routine‘.
routine (plural routines)
- A course of action to be followed regularly; a standard procedure.
- A set of normal procedures, often performed mechanically.
- A set piece of an entertainer‘s act.
watching the world go by

Did you know that there are 108 distinguishing marks on the soles of the Buddha’s feet? I certainly didn’t and it took some research to track down what the meanings are. I have to admit that I don’t know if the interpretation varies in other Asian countries. These photos were taken in Myanmar.

In keeping with Ailsa’s recent posts “if you go down to the woods today” and her current challenge theme of “toys”, I’ve decided to stick with the bear theme.
a teddy bear shrine in Thailand – the Thais love soft toys and the larger, the better
soft toys for prizes in a shooting gallery at the annual Red Cross food fair in Koh Samui, Thailand
bears made by a friend of mine for another friend who was an avid shopper and the second one for a friend who is a keen patchwork quilter
thanks to google for this one
These beautiful flowers have fallen off a tree which only flowers at night (found in Thailand). By 9am all the flowers have fallen to the ground so that only the early birds get to appreciate their beauty, ephemeral indeed.
Ephemeral things last but an instant but can cause lasting impressions or memories. It’s wonderful to be able to capture them on film/digital media so that they can be appreciated long afterwards.
Some people hate photos taken on a slant but sometimes they can cast an entirely new perspective on a scene.
Do you tilt towards the tilted or do you only operate on a strictly horizontal or vertical plane?
Share your tilted photos here.
I love the colours and textures of these pieces of weathered wood
