Sylvain Landry – Week 45: BIRDS

Self has skipped a few weeks of the Sylvain Landry Photo prompts, mostly because, since leaving the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig, she’s been doing much traveling. She went to Cork, then Dublin, then back to Cork, then to Wexford, then back to Dublin, then to London.

Now, in London, she’s had a couple of days to restore her energy. She finished reading Anjelica Huston’s memoir, Watch Me, in six days. Which is something of a record (Last year, she thinks she read a total of six books. Time was, she used to blaze through an average of 60, per year).

She started E. L. James’s Grey and decided that, alas, this novel was not for her.

She started Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend. That title alone is in itself brilliant. Whenever one titles a book, it should have something positive in the title. Like: My Brilliant Islands. Or My Brilliant Dreams. Or Beautiful Dreamer. Or something along those lines.

This week’s Sylvain Landry prompt is BIRDS.

And self has to go back to her pictures of Tyrone Guthrie Centre to find a bird picture. Here it is:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

      Ha! My camera broke. It has black bars above and below each shot now. But I don’t have time to look around for a new one. I found that if I do extreme close-ups, like with this picture, the black bars disappear. I’m glad I could post something for your prompt this week!

        hope you’ll find a solution

        It was a cheap camera, but I will not throw it away. I used it for four years and it’s been with me all over since 2012. When it absolutely won’t work AT ALL, then I’ll replace it.
