If a picture can tell a thousand words, because of what it evokes how many words and a dash of imagination is needed to tell a story?
The right 6 words can tell a story. Hemmingway proved that ( see reblogged artice) Yes, it does not tell you everything and can be interpreted different ways; has a baby died? Or were shoes born for a perspective baby that was never conceived? Or were the shoes bought and tucked away and forgotten about them remembered when they were too small for the baby. But being able to have your own theories adds to the fun of reading.
Maybe sometimes a picture is needed to help tell the story. On it’s own what does ‘Some see weeds, some see wishes’ conjure in the mind?
Can a story be told in less then 6 words? In my head when I think along these lines I start singing ‘What’s the most you can say in just one word’ I think perhaps I’m paraphrasing Bryan Adam’s inside out where the actual lyric is ‘What’s the most you have said in just one word?’ Perhaps the first time a story is told, it needs more words but, once you know the story it can be condensed down; like the article reblogged talks, about summarising films in 6 words; once watched. Or a commedian can condense a story down, so that it becomes a catchphrase. After seeing Rhod Gilbert’s talk a few times about duvet tog ratings then if I was with him; just him saying tog would have me laughing. Similar people close , can tell an in joke with very few words. Or lovers can tell a say so much, in brief texts and some imagination!
With the picture is more said here than above? Thank you, Small town rambler for the phrase.
A Yorkshire fishcake. In other parts of the country fishcakes consist of mashed potatoe mixed with flaked fish in either breadcrumbs or batter. In Yorkshire they do not consider this to be a fishcake; they call that a rissole. A Yorkshire fishcake is a thin slice of fish between, two slices of potatoe then battered.
I also bought mushy peas from local fish and chip shop. Mushy peas are more popular in north of England then the south.
I had plenty of vinegar on for tang. As I have Belgium 🇧🇪 heritage, I like mayonnaise with chips. I sometimes have tartare sauce with fish and chips but, I did not have any in stock today.
Following the knights trial revealed sights, I had never seen before in Lincoln.
The black and white building is a restaurant. I knocked my first wobbly tooth out there, eating fish fingers and swallowed it.
The back of the building above, where I lost my first tooth.
In 2015, Lincoln had a similar trial of batons. I saw one of the full sized sculptures of that in the Minerva building of the university which now has a bronze knight as part of the knight trial. Many shops; more than I took pictures of, have miniature barons in their windows.
Large knights with their names, interspersed with pictures of mini knights in shop windows.
Lincolnshire Spirit and Loving Embrace
This knight’s horse has a unicorn 🦄 type mane. It also has a montage of Lincolnshire countryside.
The Construction knight
Another Construction knight with slightly different name to previous; Knight of the Construction Trade.
There are two with construction themes because they are each sponsored by different construction companies.
Almost a knight of two halves. One side and head on both sides in jigsaw pieces and the other side is about community. It is sponsored by Lincolnshire coop which considers itself a community retailer (food, pharmacy, funeral services and travel services)and has been in existence 150 years with branches around Lincolnshire.
