This week the Daily Post has challenged us to show our photos of SHINY THINGS.
You can click the underlined link to get to a host of shining photos.
Here are my photographs and thoughts on the matter.
“All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life has sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold
Had you been as wise as bold,
Your in limbs, in judgment old,
Your answer had not been in’scroll’d
Fare you well: your suit is cold.’ Cold, indeed, and labour lost: Then, farewell, heat and welcome, frost!” Shakespeare, Merchant Of Venice
“But al thyng which that shyneth as the gold / Nis nat gold, as that I have herd it told” Geoffrey Chaucer, Yeoman’s Tale
“Hyt is not al golde that glareth” Geoffrey Chaucer, The House Of Fame
