This is a white globe, about 6 inches in diameter, on a piece of white printer paper. Canon 40D, 28-135 IS lens, F-6.3, ISO 200, 1/10 sec.

Fooling around, I found a good use for it. Layered it over a portrait of my wife in PS, then did some erasing.

Beautifully done, Walter.

I can see why you were attracted to each other, or maybe you've grown to look like each other! Your avatar plus this image warm the cockles of the heart.

As a brother of the beard
I must ask something wierd
To show I'm not that smart
How many cockles in a heart?

Oh, good grief. I'll have to consult my resident competent poetry consultants (wife & son) on this one. Provisionally, 'as many as you see in the viewfinder, or resolve in the final image'.

Best I can do for a cockle-count, after a discussion with wife, revealing that we had no idea, and a subsequent web search is in....

http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/10/messages/676.html

...which indicates that the answer may be a mere two.

If we had a challenge one day to write a verse describing the accompanying image, I bet you'd be outstanding. Maybe it's your climate. Closest I come to that is (a) your pictures and (b) watching the Van Dyke family in action on a Californian Beach in endless afternoon repeats of 'Diagnosis Murder'.

How about this (follow the weblink first)...

Wallet, watch, spectacles, testicles,
Each of them should be a functional part,
Ventricles!, two of them, that's what I need,
In addition, to make up..
The Cockles of my Heart.

I haven't had my morning coffee yet, so I won't even attempt to versify with such masters, but truly a creative application of the challenge. Nicely done, Walter.
