A Thousand Words In Idioms: K and L

Thursday, June 04, 2009
It is time again for A Thousand Words In Idioms. Actually I'm one day late. These are the words of Jientje, the host at Heaven is in Belgium:

As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay? The very first edition is here if you need some inspiration.

This time I got my idioms from UsingEnglish.com. If you know another site, please let me know. Thank you.

K is for "Keep your eye on the ball"

If you keep your eye on the ball, you stay alert and pay close attention to what is happening. The photo above was taken by my 5 year old son, Fawwaz, with my SE mobile camera. It features his 1 year old cousin, Alif, keeping his eye on the ball... His teeth were on the ball as well. LOL

L is for "Look on the bright side"

If you look on the bright side, you try to see things in an optimistic way, especially when something has gone wrong. This photo is taken from one of my SkyWatch Friday entries. It is the view from my balcony. Very bright, don't you think.

I don't think I would have had enough imagination to put any of your idioms into pictures, but you did such a great job with these!! The first one is VERY cute, and the second one is breath taking!! Lovely, and thank you so much for playing again!!

Hi Rosidah, I like your 'keep' and "look' descriptions and pictures. A five-year-old took a great picture, didn't he???? He definitely was keeping his eye o the ball.

I love that other photo so much... We all need to look at the beauty all around us.
