Power Up – Weekly Prompts – Photo Challenge Up

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Up’ as the theme for their challenge.

I don’t play as many computer games as I once did, however given the topic for this weeks challenge I wanted to find a photo to fit my chosen title.  A delve into the archives turned this ‘up’.

Cat = Sunshine – Friday Foto Fun – Pets

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we are asked to:

Please share your ‘pets’ either through your lens
or in your own words?

So here is a picture of one of our two cats, doing what cats do, attempting to snooze in a spot of sunshine.  Not only do they seek out the sunshine to lie, curl up, and purr, but they also bring sunshine into my heart.

Linear imposition – Friendly Friday – Contrasts.

This week Amanda challenges us with:

This week on Friendly Friday Photography Challenge, I am asking you to create a post on “contrasts.

So I have chosen to use another photo of ‘Long Meg and her daughters’, this time for two reasons.  I like the contrast in this photo of the ‘linear’ being imposed on the ‘circular’, that is the ‘modern’ road being driven through the ‘ancient’ stone circle.  I also just like the visual contrast in this image the highlights and shadows of the sky.

Wood way – Which Way Challenge: February 14, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

So here is a photo I took back in 2015 when we went for an after dinner walk in the woods.  Here we stand at a crossroads wondering which path to take.

Tree Goddess – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge – February 14, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

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.

So what to choose for this week, having chosen a mirrored photo last week I thought I would do the same again.  Once again the basic photo was not an oddball at all, but once it was mirrored on both vertical and horizontal axis, and a filter or two added, well . . .

Dancing Stones – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Made by Humans

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Made by Humans’.

Well I thought I would have to use a picture of a stone circle, and what better to use than Stonehenge, not my personal favorite circle, but such an enigma, just how was it built by humans?

Petals in Pink – A Photo a Week Challenge – Pink

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Pink’.

So here are a couple of photos, the first of that great pink and white cat ‘Bagpuss’, originally destined to be ginger and white, but we are all so glad he ended up pink.  A very fond childhood memory, rendered here in flower petals by the 1st Bakewell brownies.

And the second of a lovely pink lily that grabbed my attention in the garden of the house where we recorded our album for Kantref.

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.  – Audrey Hepburn

Memories – Photo for the Week – 27 – Time

This week Bren sets the topic for the ‘Photo for the Week’ as ‘Time’.

The challenge for this week is Time. And for the challenge as long as time is reflected anything goes. It could be a watch, clock, the time of a season, or even heritage.  Anything that reflects time.

So here are two pictures of a pocket watch, it is over twenty years since this kept good time, when I used to wear it when I went out for the night.  Before it was mine it was my grandfathers last watch so it also represents time in a different way as well.  So when wound up this watch can walk forwards in time with me, but also take me back.
