Eclectic Corner #7 lasted a few weeks as I was away on a course, so I especially thank those of you who entered and especially those of you who multiple entries in, just prolonging the fun which was fabulous.
You can see my multiple posts for Eclectic Corner #7 here:
You can still pop through to the InLinkz page to say hello to everyone and see the wonderful entries. It is here: Eclectic Corner #7 InLinkz Page.
We had 10 entries in all on the InLinkz page. I apologise in advance if there is anyone who entered that forgot to put themselves on to the InLinkz page, it makes it a lot easier to find out who might have forgotten if you pingback to the post, this way at least I have a chance to pick up on the post when looking back at the Event Page.
Here are the Street Photographers for the last event: (massive thank you’s)
- Belgian Streets – we had a great view of double exposure urban grungy shots with some words to make one pause and think, thank you Andy.

What is happening this week?
This week we are concentrating on
- Favourite Quotes
- Poetry, namely a Haiku
The subject matter that will be lasting a fortnight is “Splash of Colour”.
I would like to invite those of you who want to join this event to do one or all of the following:
- Submit a photograph that depicts a splash of colour, however the catch is, please no apps that take the colour away or de-saturating editing, ie please make sure it is a natural splash of colour ;-D
- Submit perhaps your favourite quote that relates to ‘colour’
- To submit a poem in the form of a Haiku, brief explanation of what this is you can find below:
What is a Haiku Poem?
A Haiku is a Japanese poem which can also be known as a Hokku. A Haiku poem is similar to a Tanka but has fewer lines. A Haiku is a type of poetry that can be written on many themes, from love to nature.
What is the Structure of a Haiku Poem?
A Haiku consists of 3 lines and 17 syllables.
Each line has a set number of syllables see below:
Line 1 – 5 syllables
Line 2 – 7 syllables
Line 3 – 5 syllables
Haiku poems don’t need to rhyme, but for more of a challenge some poets try to rhyme lines 1 and 3.

Warm colours give life

flowers bloom in praise
