The letter S

Sunset, Christmas Beach, Herald Island, NZ. Image: Su Leslie

Many (many) years ago, I used to watch the TV programme Sesame Street with my baby brother. At the end of each show, the “sponsor” announcement went something like “today’s show has been brought to you by the letters … (take your pick) and the number … (usually a small one)”.

This week’s Lens-Artists challenge, which asks for subjects beginning with the letter S, reminds me of that (and how convenient that the show was called Sesame Street).

So of course we have a sunset.

And how about some sea, sand and sky?

Or sunflowers.

Perhaps something sweet …

Or do you prefer savory?

I like to sew …

But I’ll leave singing to others.

Amongst the visual arts, I’m particularly fond of sculpture.

Sometimes serious …

Sometimes a little bit silly?

Just like Smurfs on a road trip …

  1. I watched Sesame Street religiously for years and years with my sister, and then my much littler brother. It was the best! And then decades later, watched it with my children (although on VCD) – we didn’t plug in to TV stations but I’m pretty sure it was still running.
