Picture Wednesday – Have You Seen that Fox?

The first time I saw a fox, I was walking back home at night. It had been looking for food on the rubbish bins on a high street. I remember being surprised to find it wasn’t the kind of red-brown foxes that we are used to seeing on TV or on books.

On the picture below, the street artist has used fox and origami to create their art work. Hope you Continue reading

Picture Wednesday – Back to the Future

Today, it’s future day, well at least on social media. 21st October 2015 is when Marty McFly and Doc arrive in Back to the Future 2 to try and save Marty’s son. It seem like many of us have joined in the celebrations.

Social media sites have definitely become the platform where we become close to others who we don’t really know, but whom we might share something, even if it isn’t something truly meaningful. In this case, it’s a specific element that appears in a movie which has not even won an Oscar. It even is a second part of a movie. But, we don’t really care, do we? Back to the Future 2 was an entertaining piece.

Why do we find fun or even interesting taking part in this social media event? I vote for the sense to belonging without the hassle of a true and meaningful relationship with another person.

How much do you think they got right about the future? We don’t have those wonderful shoes, and we only have a promising hoverboard. Continue reading
