HOUSES

In an old fruit tree in our backyard, close to the house, a woodpecker got busy this spring noisily making a home. My husband watched him regularly, and got a series of nice shots. He put his own captions to a series on Flickr, but with his permission I've seconded a few of the photographs and added my own captions - more fitting to an astrology blog. The photographs show a house of sorts, houses are part and parcel of astrology - so:

1st House. (The self)
"HI! THIS IS ME!"



2nd House (property, possessions)
"AND THIS IS MY HOUSE!"



3rd House (communication)
"HELLO Y'ALL! CAN YOU HEAR ME?"



4th House (home, mother/parent)
A MOTHER'S WORK IS NEVER DONE!



5th House (children, creativity)
"SQUAAAAAK.....FEED ME!"



6th House (hygiene, health)
"THE KIDS MAKE SUCH A MESS. TIME FOR A CLEAN-UP"





7th House (partnerships, relationships)

"WHERE'D YA GO, WENDY? - I'M WATIN' FOR YA."



8th House (sex, passion)
"DO I LOOK SEXY IN THIS?"



9th House (religion, travel)
"SHHH....THE PASTOR IS AT THE DOOR. I'M STAYING AWAY!"



10th House (work, career)
"IT'S HARD WORK HOUSE-BUILDING"



11th House (friends and wishes)
A FRIEND AT THE DOOR - "CAN I COME IN FOR A CHAT?"



12th House (seclusion)
"A BODY NEEDS TO GET AWAY FOM IT ALL SOMETIMES"

"Hello Y'all!" What part of Yorkshire do you hail from? ;-)

Your husband has a talent with the old Brownie box. (You'll have to explain that one to him). Excellent photographs.

Loved the idea I think he just decided to pose for the photos knowing what he had to do

RJ: Thank you - I shall pass on your remarks to himself. :-)

Hi Laura - You're right - that woodpecker saw an ideal opportunity for a photo op. He's something of a ham actor too, isn't he!?

Thanks for the kind words about the photography. The woodpeckers are showoffs and full of personality. Easy subjects.

This is a fun presentation of the series.
