Fantasy – One word Sunday Challenge: Symmetry, & Which Way photo challenge – January 31 2020.

This week Debbie  challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own symmetry post.

And each Friday San challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo 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. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

I always enjoy taking pictures and turning them into symmetrical images, those with trees I find, always take on the ethereal, a touch of the fantasy realms. Perhaps by mirroring the image we are allowed in some way a brief glimpse into those worlds that lie just beyond our sight!

Once I have mirrored them I usually treat them just like any other photo, lightening, darkening, filtering, and general tinkering with different portions, and thus the result is always, not quite symmetrical, in an attempt to fool the eye.

Overgrown and forgotten. – Word/Photo Challenge: ‘The Bridge’

For this weekends prompt GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme.

This weekend the Word/Photo Challenge from GC and me is ‘The Bridge’ 

Well I decided to go for the conventional, just because I snapped this last week when walking in our local woodland. It is a favourite spot, I do love how this old bridge, that once bridged embankments over a long disused branch line, has persisted against the ravages of time when so many have fallen.  In its heyday it would have shown a bridging between the modernity of the industrial rails and the agricultural fields that surround it, allowing miners to walk to work, from the local village to the mine workings.  But now it stands, slowly deteriorating, bridging a forgotten past with the present.
