River and stones – Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Revisited

For this weeks challenge Amanda asks:

This week on Friendly Friday, I am asking you to Re-visit your memories, places and experiences.

The prompt ‘Re-visiting’ might mean something entirely different. It might simply mean a return to a place, but in another time. A ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo, of a project, from start to finish, or a time warp showing changes from one decade to another. Such as revisiting the changes from baby to child or child to adult. It might even be a place you wish to re-visit one day.

The first photo is a place I have used a couple of times times this year for challenges, and I hope we will get to revisit there.

And the second is a place we almost always revisit when we go to Cornwall, at least once a year if we can.

‘At the Men-an-tol’, West Penwith, Cornwall, 2018.RevisitMT

And both photos were revisited for the purposes of this challenge, in memory, and in reworking them.

In, behind, illuminated – A Photo a Week Challenge – Unexpected Windows

This weeks challenge from Nancy is:

Have you ever walked pass an opening in a wall or barrier and suddenly an amazing view opened up? I love unexpected windows. It’s like viewing a whole different world, even if it’s your own backyard through your backdoor.


So the first is unusual only because I was not expecting to take it.

The second, a baby seagull sheltering against the window, an unexpected view through the glass.

And finally, hopefully you will let me get away with this one, a photo of the light falling on my wife from the circular opening in the ceiling of the underground elliptical domed chamber ‘Tewlwolow Kernow’ by James Turrell Ra.

Garden – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge 1/31/19

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.  If you have any of those type of photos, this challenge is for you.

So here is another Oddball taken for who knows what purpose.

Ancient tunes – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Anything Construction Related.    This topic is quite huge.  See if any of you can come up with something way out of the box.

So my first photo is of an ancient roundhouse at Grimspound on Dartmoor.

The second is of what a completed roundhouse may have looked like.

And finally as far out of the box as my thinking would take me, a photo of the room where my band Kantref recorded our album.  If you try hard enough you can see the notes floating in the air, the music and album are under construction, the photo taken at a moment when the construction workers have downed tools for a cup of tea.
