Day 10 – Five

Five Silly Librarians

A Game of Fives by Lewis Carroll

Five little girls, of Five, Four, Three, Two, One:
Rolling on the hearthrug, full of tricks and fun.Five rosy girls, in years from Ten to Six:
Sitting down to lessons – no more time for tricks.

Five growing girls, from Fifteen to Eleven:
Music, Drawing, Languages, and food enough for seven!

Five winsome girls, from Twenty to Sixteen:
Each young man that calls, I say “Now tell me which you MEAN!”

Five dashing girls, the youngest Twenty-one:
But, if nobody proposes, what is there to be done?

Five showy girls – but Thirty is an age
When girls may be ENGAGING, but they somehow don’t ENGAGE.

Five dressy girls, of Thirty-one or more:
So gracious to the shy young men they snubbed so much before!

Five PASSE girls – Their age? Well, never mind!
We jog along together, like the rest of human kind:
But the quondam “careless bachelor” begins to think he knows
The answer to that ancient problem “how the money goes”!

This “five” came in threes today. Three because three of the ladies shown in this photo used three different cameras to shoot three different photos at the same time.  So, our fivesome became a threesome, of sorts!  (some silly woman Photoshopped this one too!)

Day 9 – Four

Day 9 - Four

Four Things by Henry Van Dyke

Four things a man must learn to do
If he would make his record true:
To think without confusion clearly;
To love his fellow man sincerely;
To act from honest motives purely;
To trust in God and Heaven securely.
Today’s photo, which really looks like three things, is actually four push pins shot in a teaching moment.  Ahhhh!  The joys of Aperture! (and the joy of Photoshopping something within an inch of its colorful life once in a while)
