Dancing boats and trees – V.J.’S Weekly Challenge #34 – Reaching.

For this weeks challenge V.J. asks us:

What is it you are reaching for? Maybe it’s a lens drawn (as mine often is) to line that stretches… or is it something stirring behind your words?

This week, let’s follow our instincts, or impulses, and try to capture that for which we are reaching.

Well I reached out to the archives for this one.  My first picture of A boat in Portreath harbor, with chains reaching out to seemingly constrain, but only to keep it safe.  This is the way we so often treat ourselves, we just need to remember that sometimes it is safe to be without our chains holding us back.

And the second photo, taken at Bakewell day of dance, of dancers who have definitely let go of their constraints for the day and are reaching out to each other and to us.

And finally to complement V.J.’s post, this tree at Knightshayes Court, majestic reaching to the sky.

Nash Point Mist – Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #30 – Unexpected

This week Ann-Christine, Leya hosts the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, and she asks us to post based on the following:

Did something totally unexpected happen today? Did you meet someone unexpected at the grocery store, or did you find something in an unexpected place …or, maybe You are up to something unexpected?

In August 2018 we took an unexpected visit to Nash Point, its actually not far from where we live but we had never been before. It turned out to be an unexpected magical place, and that was before the unexpected, well for us anyway, sea mist started to roll in.

Shipshape – Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

This weeks Challenge asks us to:

“focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.”

So here is a shot taken during our visit to the Viking Ship Museum at Roskilde, during our recent trip to Copenhagen.
