A Month of Haiga – February 6, 2016

Hello, sorry I’m late!

I was playing with some different photo editors in free mode that I found on-line today.  I tried a few but wasn’t really impressed, to tell the truth Pixar and PicMonkey cover most of my needs nicely.  I tried three – the last one did actually have a few  instruments that I haven’t seen on my two on-line favourites and allows you to spruce up in different zones of your photo instead of just flooding colour anywhere.  The name of the site is befunky .. one of the two sites, not only weren’t very original they allowed me to work for a while and then watermarked my photograph.  Today’s theme will be:



Yesterday I had to go to Rovereto for one of my annual checkups (Trentino is big on preventative medicine and at least for the moment hasn’t let the economic crisis stop these health programs).  As I’d arrived early, I passed the time away taking photographs … you can get some interesting shots even in a hospital … it’s just a matter of looking. The photo below was just a shot down a corridor (corridors can make interesting illustrations for short stories or poems) after tweaking and poking,  the rather modest photo took on some interesting tones.  This is my haiga for today:

If you’d like to participate, but are inspired by something different – that’s fine by me – once you’ve completed your haiga just tag  your post Bastet’s One Month of Haiga and link directly to this post, then  link your haiga post in the Mr. Linky app hidden in my flowers below so others can easily find you:

Have a great day!  Bastet!

  2. oh my!
    you’ve been busy on many fronts. Love the corridor. It is just like the one in the Oxford hospital where I am learning to walk again – physio ready to catch me. windows all open with a fresh breeze lightening my mood.
    love the way you have hidden the linky.

    • Yes I have been busy the past week, and not only with photography which has been leaving me with little time to dedicate to my blog … these corridors must be very similar the world over I think … although the one in Oxford sounds very “friendly” if I can say something of the sort – Joanna .. I’m really pleased with the Mr.Linky icon I made which brings to mind that I saw you left a link to your haiga … but it leads to your editing page and so I can’t enter .. could you re-link your haiga?

      • sorry, but I am having problems with the new site I created for this. Would you be so kind as to remove my link from feb 6th, as it causes confusion. I would really appreciate that and I know it can be done by the linky holder. I used to run one or two some years back.
        I will think of something different and let you know.

      • Oh dear Joanna .. I’m not able to remove the entries .. I’m using the free version of Mr. Linky so the original owners (who’ve abandoned Weekend Reflections to be used by others) would have to remove this. I’m terribly sorry. To avoid confusion you might perhaps put up a post with a specification … like Joanna 2 or something.

  4. yeah, running those night dream corridors. . . .sheesh. i have to get out of bed just to get some rest. fun. i have to say it would be fun to play with your themes too. i’ve committed to NaHaiWriMo tho and unless i’m really stumped i’ll probably continue on those prompts. cool to hook up with your birthday month event tho. more fun. aloha.

    • No problem happy you’re enjoying yourself and happy to see your haiga here … I couldn’t get a haiku to work with zebra no less … but no problems with the others so far. Interesting to do 29 (nope 28) days of haiku with a z word! Ciao 🙂
