Wild and tame – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #64 – Countryside and/or Small Towns

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Tina, Patti, Ann-Christine, and I [Amy] are looking forward to seeing your photos and reading stories of countryside and/or a small town.

I would say that at lest 50% of my photos could fit into this category as I live fairly rural, and my holidays usually take me to rural places, in search of ancient stones I tramp across wild open spaces, through forests, past lakes, up and down hill and mountain, and along public pathways.  Farmland and the ever patient farmers with the walkers on the land are a recurrent theme.  I live in Wales so I have access to some of the UK’s best countryside and small towns, even our big towns and cities are small :).

The countryside and our towns can be both wild and tame, so here are a few photos for you about what this means to me.

Mergnome – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: August 8th, 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.

Feed me rubbish – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: August 1st, 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.

I cannot help feeling that this is in some way a metaphor for modern life.

Ancient Rectangles – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

As there is quite a bit of geometry at work, I thought that Rectangles might be an interesting theme, as they are everywhere and can be captured in many ways. You can get them straight on, or at angle that warps the perspective… Feel free to let your creativity guide your rectangular interpretation!

Well I was all set to use a photo of some scaffolding, and then I saw this photo, and given I had just published a post entitled ‘Ancient Triangle’, I thought this would be the perfect companion! Plenty of rectangles on view here.

Ancient triangle – #SundayStills: #Triangles

This week Teri has challenged us with:

“Triangles” is our theme this week for the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge.

I am going to claim that the Capstone of Bodowyr Burial Chamber is a triangle, or at least it looks like one, hope I get away with it :).
