Well this is embarrassing – Liebster Award Nomination no. 2

I’m not generally one to blow my own trumpet, so being nominated once was thrilling, a second nomination is just astounding. I am truly honoured that “…it’s Like a finger pointing way off to the moon..” thought it worthy to give another nomination. His blog is one of my favourites, so when someone who posts such alluring images finds my Cranky little blog entertaining, I feel absolutely amazed. You may have read my first nomination…but I’ll go through the motions again, you can also find more details about the award here.

What is the Liebster Award?

This is an award for new and old bloggers alike to get some recognition and interact with the blogging community.

So what are the rules again?

1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated your blog.

2. Answer the questions.

3. Nominate 11 other new bloggers to encourage them.

4. Ask them 11 questions

5. Let them know you have nominated them.

Questions that “…It’s like a finger pointing way off to the moon..” asked and my answers:-

1. What made you start blogging?

I was encouraged by a very good friend to start this blog. I have to say I actually had very little confidence in my writing when I started, but they really helped and inspired me to start, and I can’t say enough how much I thank them for the encouragement. It has enlivened a dormant passion of mine and given me a something that I love doing.

2. Marvel or DC?

Marvel…every time. Iron man and the Hulk being particular favourites.

3. Black and white or Colour?

I love both, but black and white has an edge for me. It’s dramatic and captures a different feel that colour simply doesn’t achieve. Maybe I like the melancholia of black and white.

4. Where would you most what to travel to and why?

Japan. I am desperate to explore the culture and art work.

5. Bike or Train?

Train…I can’t ride a bike…I know, before anyone comments in disbelief at my failings, I have no centre of balance for it. There is something nostalgic about a long train ride. I’m not talking the daily commute in this, but I recently did a trip to Rotterdam by train and loved it.

6. Best piece of architecture you have seen?

This is a tough one as I have travelled a lot and I love many different styles of architecture. I loved the Reischstag, but I equally loved the pyramids. There are hundreds of buildings and structures that I love, so I don’t think I could name just one.

7. Favourite piece of music?

Music is a key factor to my life. I attribute songs and music to memories, so again, I don’t think I could pick just one.

8. If you had to choose one item to live without, what would it be?

House flies. They can do one. Or a microwave…I’ve never mastered the technique of the pop de ping.

9. What moves you?

Despite popular belief for anyone who really knows me, there are a lot of things that move me. It can be as simple as a small act of kindness to viewing a masterpiece. I don’t think that there is enough random acts of kindness in the world, so let’s go for that as number one.

10. If you could only have one form of media from now on, what would it be?

I think it would have to be written media. I’m blessed with a very visual mind, so I think I could cope with written descriptions of things that I could then colour with my own imagination.

11. What isn’t there enough of?

Coffee…gin…random kindness… I’m not going to go too deep and meaningful here, as I’m starting to feel a little like a Miss World contestant.

Now to the good bit… 11 nominations:- 

1. Little Fears

2. Dave Whatt

3. Mostly Monochrome

4. Flow Art Station

5. Brett, O’ Canada

6. Outside Authority

7. The Vile Mint

8. Simonbowlerphotos

9. The Unintended Curator

10. Daily Doodle

11. Black Pen Art

And 11 Questions…

1. What is the thing you procrastinate over?

2. Chocolate or cheese?

3. Best random act of kindness you have given?

4. Where do you hope blogging will take you?

5. What colour crayon would you be and why?

6. What animal do you think you are most like?

7. City or countryside?

8. What is your favourite all time movie?

9. If you could live in any decade, which would it be?

10. Early bird or Night hawk?

11. Why do you think there are 11 questions and not 10 or 12?

So there it is, another insight in to the Crankster. Again I just want to thank you guys for reading, responding and nominating. It’s truly touching. I’m going to leave you with a picture by Roberto Ferri this time as his work is a visual joy.
