In response to Paula’s prompt where one word or all; one photo or many can depict the five words chosen for the month. The words are: candescent, algid, angular, auricomous, festive.
The Terrace theatre at Tinonee, NSW is one of the smallest cinemas in the world and certainly the smallest in Australia. Opened in 1993, it has 22 seats in a building constructed in the late 1800s. Showing 35mm films on original projecting equipment the decor fits with the atmosphere down to the candescent lighting held by a couple of art deco figures on the stage and the chandelier in the seating area.
Algid is described by the dictionary as a cold and lonely word as it is the only word to come from the latin word algere meaning to feel cold. In these landscapes I know I felt cold and just a trifle lonely.
Angular is the best way to describe this structure at the mine at Broken Hill.
When auricomous came up I have to admit that the perfect photo for this word did not come to mind because I had no idea what the word meant. Once I found it was having golden hair or yellow hair I knew I had the photo to fit the bill.
People are festive in different ways world wide.
Kuala Lumpur at Chinese New Year the lion dance often heralds the New Year in.
Our festive spirit is just a little more subdued.
