Being Dutch, I did not get a thorough grounding in this particular subject. We 'did' 'Twelfth Night' which I found excruciatingly boring, and I never got beyond that.
I do know a lot of titles, plots and famous phrases of course (as my signature shows), so I might be able to do something with that. A bit busy at the moment though, so I'll see what I can, or cannot, come up with.

Well I have one shot in the bag that I may go with, unless another idea springs to mind.  :legit:

I've hit the quotation sites looking for a) inspiration, and b) something I can actually do . .

Just to get things going,

A phrase



An easy one to guess  ;)

(Not sure what is happening regarding my back injuries, off to see a dr. later today; so if things go quiet do not worry to much)

Just entered mine and I'm not altogether happy with it. May change it, if/when I get a better shot at the same subject. (Saves having to hunt for quotes again!) Bit rushed off my feet at the moment.

This is my entry:


I won't let you guess, I'll tell you: "Put money in thy purse." (Iago, Othello, Act one. Oh the blessings of the Internet!)

Have a good weekend all of you!

Yup, the first phrase when I Go-ogled was indeed - 'A horse!, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.' - and my daughters gold horse happened to be standing nearby.

And for those interested; Shot indoors in my 'under construction' studio area, ISO 64, f/7.1, 3 sec., using a couple of shields to cast the shadows and a single moving candle flame for the fire highlight.

(Thanks R, I have not been whisked off for surgery yet but the threat is there)

If the surgery works, you shouldn't see it as a threat!
Good luck!

It is the 'If' bit that always worries me - but yes surgury may be the inevitable aspect  :-\

Back to the topic; I hope there will be a few more comp entries for this this weeks challenge.

I have my idea all prepped, just need an opportunity. But I also have a rubbish back up plan.

Couldn't find any quotes for 'Rubbish!'  :D At least no quotes from the bard himself.
