Week in Seven Words #235

carousel
Paintings, mirrors, glassy music, kids bobbing on waves of color and noise.

fetching
A winsome, curly-haired lawyer picking her away through old warehouses and artist lofts.

genuine
People talking about what they love or what they're interested in, without competitiveness or preening.

patrol
Wasps swooping over a green plot where Lincoln sits and listens.

platinoid
Skyscrapers that look like they were made entirely of platinum group metals: ruthenium windows, iridium roofs.

sunny
Yellow brick, bright as fruit, a backdrop for trees.

traces
In a neighborhood saturated with history, I wonder who once stood beside the lampposts or looked out the windows with the white shutters.

I like sunny, nice to imagine sun on such a dull day as we have today!

I also particularly like traces, i love finding the traces of history left in the buildings in Edinburgh where I live, so many stories hidden away

Yes, talking about dull days, it's been windy, cold and rainy here all day :)

Edinburgh - I'd definitely love to revisit it. I was there once, for most of one day, nearly 10 years ago. Just scratching the surface...
