Unused – #ThursdayDoors: May 9, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.

This week a photo from the archives, I particularly like this door, but the way it relates to the rest of the architecture made a wide shot of the door inevitable, and for some reason I never took a close up.

Smoking Blue – Weekly Prompts: Blue

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

As we begin the month of April Susan and I have chosen a photo challenge relating to the color BLUE as the shade most appropriate to welcome the return of spring with its blue skies, fresh air and babbling brooks.

So  this photo came to mind of a large Blue sculpture at the Eden Project. It measures nearly nine metres tall, weighs 20-tonnes, and fires out vapour rings, thought to be the world’s biggest ceramic sculpture at the time it was unveiled at the Eden Project on Tuesday, May 22 2018.

It is called ‘∞ Blue’ (Infinity Blue) and it pays homage to cyanobacteria, one of the world’s smallest living beings.  Created by duo Studio Swine (Super Wide Interdisciplinary New Explorers), Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves.

Flowers and sky – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Blue and Yellow.   I would prefer if your photos of blue and yellow in them.  If you don’t find that combination, you can use either color, just make sure that color is prominent. Feel free to use your photo archives and see what photos you have that fits the current week’s challenge, or even better yet grab you camera and take a new photo! ENJOY and have FUN.

So I had a couple of images in mind, and a trip into the archives resulted in the following photos that I reworked for the challenge.  The first of Gorse against a Blue sky in Cornwall sometime in 2015 with the a6000.

The next two are of a rapeseed field at Merthyr Mawr sometime in 2012 taken on the old Fuji HS20.
