Pictures Just Pictures is having a day off because today . . . there are words.
Lucy Corrander - The Fall of Sandsfoot Castle - 17th December 2008

Scroll Down for a Bigger Picture

From time to time, Gordon Mason (who frequently comments on this blog) has written poems inspired by the photos here and has posted them on - Catapault to Mars.

Recently, he suggested we do things round the other way for a change - I read one of his poems and take a picture to go with it.

Today - we have the result.

You can read the poem at

That works well. Good poem and great picture.

Lucy Corrander said...

Thanks Hermes. It's been an interesting challenge.

The collaboration works well - I hope we see more.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Karen

I'm glad you think so.

It was fun to do.

I took this photo very soon after Gordon sent the poem . . . then floundered around for weeks because, although I like this picture, I wasn't sure it was right for this blog.

Now I've put it here at last and I'm pleased.


Kanak Hagjer said...

Agree with Karen...would love to see more.

Have a lovely week!

The photo works very well with the poem. That would be a challenge, and this succeeds. I love the collaboration.

What a good idea - the picture and poem are perfect together. The collaboration is an inspiring idea.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Kanak and Philip and Easy Gardener.

I'm glad you all think the experiment of linking a picture with a poem 'worked'.

I'm thinking of throwing down the gauntlet and challenging anyone to say 'match a picture with this'!

It wouldn't have to be a poem. It could be a quote . . . or another kind of posting (and I wouldn't be able to guarentee I would succeed!) - but it would be fun to try . . . to get two angles on the same subject . . . and I would put a link from here to the related item on the other blog.

Anyone got any ideas?


Gordon Mason said...

Can I just say thanks too for all the comments. It was good to hear that the collaboration idea worked!

And good luck, Lucy, with the challenge you have thrown down!

What you have suggested would be an interesting challenge Lucy ....
