Six word Saturday


I went looking for reflections, but…

I didn't find many

I didn’t find many

I did find lots of boats

But I did find lots of boats

And you know I like a boat or two

And you know I like a boat or two

This wasn't quite the reflection I had in mind

This wasn’t quite the reflection I had in mind

Isn't it looking pretty today?

Isn’t it looking pretty today?

Just a whisper of reflection

Found a whisper of a reflection

Light patterns play in the water

And the sun playing in the water

The Black Diamond training ship

And around the Black Diamond training ship

Hooray!  A cloud reflected in the window

Hooray! A cloud reflected in the window

The inner harbour is flat calm

Flat calm- fluffy clouds in the inner harbour

At last!  A full on reflection

At last! A full on reflection

Next week’s Thursday’s Special has the theme ‘reflections’.  On a clear bright day this week I thought I’d get ahead of the game.  But there was just enough wind to ripple the water and make my task that little bit harder.  No matter!  I enjoyed playing anyway.

I won’t be going anywhere near Hartlepool marina this weekend.  It’s grey and wet!   Maybe we’re saving the sunshine for next weekend’s long Easter Break.  Wherever you are I hope you have a happy weekend.   And don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face to play Six word Saturday.



    1. I was fascinated at some of the patterns the camera created from the reflections, Ad. No doubt I’ll be back to play some more soon. 🙂 Done boot camp yet, or is that Fridays? 🙂

  1. Your marina scenes are lovely. And I actually like the window reflection Jo. Very much 🙂 I think I should hunt down some reflections for Paula’s challenge as well.

    1. I took some hilarious ones at zumba this morning, Madhu, but only on my phone and I haven’t looked at them yet to see if they’ll work. I wouldn’t mind but I already have some in mind. These challenges are ruling my life! 🙂 🙂

  2. Oh how I love boats and marinas, reflections or not, Jo. You have a cheery sun and puffy clouds. I’ve been away from the computer and have much to catch up on. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂

  3. Hi Jo – enjoyed this stroll – and variety of reflections! saw a boat I loved so much – the white one with gray (6th photo in)
    ~ also, your post today reminded me of Henri Matisse’s “The Boat” painting – because it was hung upside down – and it actually was when someone noticed that the reflection was not correct that something was “off” – hmmm – the reflection was everything in this very simple piece he made…..

  4. I am a “Boat” fanatic and have even owned a couple and sailed on a few more so you can imagine how much I enjoyed your photographs. I have great memories of sailing across the Mediterranean in a converted trawler during a decent gale, and the way the boat rocked and plunged through the waves. An exhilarating voyage to have survived 🙂

    1. I’ll be cooking, washing and ironing and if I’m very lucky I might get to bowl a few paste eggs, Richard, but thanks! 🙂 I know you’ll have a good one.

    1. There is some hint of sunshine now, but it’s blowing a hooligan so I’ll be on the laptop. I’ve zumba’d so that’s my excuse to be lazy 🙂
      Dawn tomorrow? That’s not good timing because the clock’s go forward and you lose an hour! Don’t suppose it affects when dawn happens though. Enjoy! 🙂

    1. Oh, don’t, Viv! I can’t bear the thought! 😦 We had 2 sunny days this week and I actually thought it had Sprung and sat in the park with a book! Back to damp and dreary but I did enjoy the taster. 🙂

  5. Oh what a blue and sunny day at the marina, Jo. How I wish I had a marina nearby to visit. 🙂 Love your reflections, even if you didn’t find that many. Happy weekend. I’ll be heading to Hong Kong for Easter. Yay! xxx

    1. Oh, wow! Lucky lady! Viveka is going too, on 1st April till 7th, I think. It was a fleeting moment, Cathy. Would almost have done for Ephemeral 🙂 🙂 Have fun!

      1. Yes, I guess you should, Jo, although I don’t think I could read any more blogs than I already do right now, what with my slow internet and my teaching schedule. Maybe once I return to Virginia. 🙂
