Down the dale, down the dell. [30/365] by DaphneNg Down the dale, down the dell. [30/365] by DaphneNg
Dance Dot, dance Dan,
Dance, dance, do!
Down the dale, and down the dell
I'll dance too.


You know some phrases you remember when you were young, like the ABC and twinkle twinkle little star? This one I learned when I was 10 or 11, our afternoon class English teacher had a whole list of alphabetical limericks (? or is it poems?) for us to memorize. I remembered the one for 'D', because, well it's the first letter of my name. I typed that verse into google but couldn't find anything except for 'dale' meaning some 'fine lookin' young thang', 'DANCE DANCE DANCE' lyrics or some kind, and 'Dell' for - you guessed it - the computer. This makes this limerick ultra special to me, you can't find it anywhere on google, with the media nowadays at the tip of your fingers, you gotta admit this is a gem. (Unless you all learnt this at school too then this is an embarrassing paragraph...)

I took about 300+ pictures in 6 different concepts / styles today before deciding it wasn't working. Today earned Crappiest 365 Yet award. Some days, y'know? Downright put me in a crappy black mood. I expect this to happen in the near future, especially when I start university again. It was only in the post processing I got ideas and searched for silhouette references (I got this one from [link]) and voila. Post processing makes things happen, really really.
