Laa jiu, a selfie and fishing boats

                                Two for one 


Today on the blog I have combined two nemes. One day a week I introduce a Manx word, as I live on the Isle of Man. The Manx word today is coincidentally actually "today," which in Manx is "Laa jiu." The other part of the blog post contains what we are calling the "shy selfie" and somewhere in there you can spot the shadowy image of the photographer.  Image taken down by the harbour, West Quay, where moored fishing boats are at rest. 

Image Nikon D50, my old camera, around noon.

A good way to play with the theme, Jane!

Love the splash of orange, Jane. And "today" in Manx does not make it easy to work out the derivation og the language of your adopted island home.

I'll hand you over to this page for an explanation on the formation of the Manx language. My limit is posting a word periodically, but this site is a brilliant place for all those wishing to find out more. Interesting and educational. http://www.learnmanx.com/cms/page_73913.html

What a great idea to introduce a Manx word! Now there is the problem of how to pronounce it!
Thanks for the visit and comment. Have a great time this week and happy Eastern.

I see you there in the wonderful turquoise water off The Isle of Man Jane :) Beautiful image for the theme.

I like that you've included such color with you.

Looooove your selfie shot! I wish I had the sea nearby!

So is Manx a cousin of Cornish?

Joy said...

A nice still day for your watery selfie, those nets are wonderfully colourful.

This is the first time I've heard of a language called Manx. I learned something new. - Margy

The contrast of the orange with the turquoise is wonderful, Jane. And this was a fun way to combine memes!
