Mandals – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Shoes or Feet

For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks that:

This week the topic is Shoes or Feet (human or animal).   This is a topic you can really have enjoy.   Let’s see how creative you can get.

I instantly remembered this photo of my feet, it could equally be a candidate for Cee’s Oddball challenge as I have no idea why I took it.  I have used it before for a WPC but thought given it fits the bill I would rework it.  Even at this reduced resolution I advise against pixel peeping if you do not like feet or toenails!

Karen – Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

This weeks challenge asks:

In the final edition of the Weekly Photo Challenge, Daily Post staff contributors share their favorite photos and invite you to do the same.

Sadly this is the last “Daily post weekly photo challenge”, and therefore I will have to look elsewhere for my prompts to blog, its been fun to follow, but it is sad to see this challenge come to an end.

So a photo for all time favorites – not just a favorite photo [reworked for the competition], but a favorite location, a favorite treat, and a favorite person:

String – Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

This weeks challenge asks:

In this week’s photo challenge, show us something twisted. You can be literal in your interpretation — show us the coils of your hair, a winding woodland path, or a gnarled tree trunk. Or, be more abstract, and show us something that represents life’s inherently twisty character

So here is a random snap taken in 2014 of a piece of string.

Outside – Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

This weeks challenge asks:

For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city?

So here is a pic taken at Arthur’s stone near Hay-on-Wye, showing my love of walking in the countryside, visiting ancient sites, photography, the resultant tinkering with the photo and just being with Karen.

Mussles – Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

This weeks challenge asks:

What do you think of when you think of the word, “prolific”? If spring has arrived where you live, maybe the plethora of dandelions sprouting in your neighborhood might fit. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, it might be the leaves falling from the trees. Your response need not be one based in nature — let your imagination fuel your camera.

So I hunted around for a photo, as I could not find something in the current set I was editing, and came up with this proliferation of shellfish, that I had not previously edited.

Walking among stones- Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

This weeks challenge asks us:

What would you rather be doing? If you’ve got more than one hobby, don’t be shy — you’re welcome to share the myriad ways in which you’d prefer to be spending time.

So the answer could be a couple of things, taking photos, playing music, playing boardgames, editing photos, thinking, dancing, or walking among stones at West Penwith in Cornwall.

So here another two another photos of the “Nine Maidens of Boskednan” [click for larger images]

Stonehenge Triptych – Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme

This weeks challenge asks us:

use your camera to discover the endless variety that one thing can contain. It can be a single photo featuring some visual play on repetition and variation

I am currently working on some photos taken at Stonehenge in June last year, so thought I would use one of those for the basis for this challenge.

Nine Maidens of Boskednan, Boscawen-Un & St. Ives harbour at night – Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

This weeks challenge asks us:

This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017.

So here are three photos taken from a set taken while in Cornwall in September this year.  I’ve used photos from this set before for the Weekly Challenges, but not yet got around to editing the entire set.  There was some lovey light to be found on this trip and the results are fast becoming some of my favorites from 2017.  Wishing you all a splendid new year.
