Part of WordPress’s photography course Developing Your Eye I.

Today’s obvious photo prompt asks to connect. I did so on several levels. I shot a horror snap of railway tracks, railway being the literal means of connection. The snap was taken very early in the morning, which represents the connection between night and day. So clever, right? And no, of course I didn’t bother to get up at an impossible hour only for the sake of shooting a premeditated photo. I had to be up anyway and the snap was just opportune. Or random, to be more exact.

Only connect!

Live in fragments no longer.

I'm a sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.


  1. Is Developing Your Eye I a retooled version of Photography 101? I definitely remember the Connect assignment. Nice job!



    1. It’s actually the very same challenge, but with a different name. It fooled me, I thought it was a new one! But still, it’s fun to retake it and see how (if) your skills have evolved.

      1. I can see that; probably would be good for me to redo it as well. (As your picture shows, a theme can be taken in many directions.) I never did Photography 201–bet that has been renamed as well (as has Blogging 101).



        1. You’re right, actually all the courses on offer now are just old courses with new names. A shame there’s nothing new!

    1. Thank you! It was just a random snap, as is often the case with me…
