Something seen for the first time – drinking coconut

I came across something new today in the shop where I work… a drinking coconut. It even came with a ring pull attached to expose a hole through the shell into which a straw could be placed. There was a surprisingly large amount of coconut water inside. It took me while to finish

Photo word of the week – Me

First person singular – Used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself as the object of a verb or preposition.

This is me. This is me at a single point in time, without the context of my surroundings. It is not clear what I am doing or where I am. All that is known is that this is me.


If you can guess what I’m doing, or where I am, please leave a comment below. I will post the complete photo tomorrow.



Photo word of the week – Dilemma

Noun – A difficult situation or problem.

In today’s world, we are often faced with a vast array of choices. Where once there was clarity, now there there is endless dilemma. It’s too easy to find ourselves stuck between different options, unable to make a decision. The Dilemma doesn’t come from not knowing what we like, or what we want. It comes from the fear of letting go. Leaving a path. Shutting a door. Choosing something that is not perfect.

But no choice is ever perfect. If we wait for perfection and perfect clarity. We will forever be staring at the sweet counter in front of us.

We must therefore have courage to believe our choice is a good one. Only then can we enjoy what we have chosen.




Photo word of the week – Preposterous

Adjective – Contrary to reason or common sense; utterly absurd or ridiculous.

When looking for something preposterous to feature in this week’s post, I came across these benches outside the Southbank Centre in London. These aren’t just normal benches however, they’re ‘Modified Social Benches’. In fact, in some cases, the benches are modified to such an extent that they have become rather unsuitable for sitting on. They are quite preposterous!
