OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Instead of a Saturday Shadow I have a Saturday Shine from Boconnoc Steam Rally a couple of weeks ago.

I saw Georgie polishing the wheel of a friend's full size steam engine "Cornish Maid" and tried to catch her reflection in the hub cap. I hope you all have a good weekend.

A cracking image, one which you could see your face in...

Here's a little poem written by Langston Hughes an American Poet which I thought you might like...

Brass Spittoons

Clean the spittoons, boy.
Detroit,
Chicago,
Atlantic City,
Palm Beach.
Clean the spittoons.
The steam in hotel kitchens,
And the smoke in hotel lobbies,
And the slime in hotel spittoons:
Part of my life.
Hey, boy!
A nickel,
A dime,
A dollar,
Two dollars a day.
Hey, boy!
A nickel,
A dime,
A dollar,
Two dollars
Buy shoes for the baby.
House rent to pay.
Gin on Saturday,
Church on Sunday.
My God!
Babies and gin and church
And women and Sunday
All mixed with dimes and
Dollars and clean spittoons
And house rent to pay.
Hey, boy!
A bright bowl of brass is beautiful to the Lord.
Bright polished brass like the cymbals
Of King David’s dancers,
Like the wine cups of Solomon.
Hey, boy!
A clean spittoon on the altar of the Lord.
A clean bright spittoon all newly polished—
At least I can offer that.
Com’mere, boy!

Just up my street, Ju!
I love this sort of lmage - so colourful and detailed and a great reflection!!
By the way, the collage was done using Picasa, a free Google download - or at least it was!!
