Burial stones – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

This week Frank challenges us with the topic:

After a week of fuzzy logic, images and beings, I thought it might be a good time to turn to something a bit more permanent. So, I cam to think of Stone as a theme

Well you could probably guess that it was going to be something like the below from me!

Way in? – Weekly Prompts: Deception

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

The weekend photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Deception, or put another way… do your eyes deceive you?

So an ancient Deception for you – this is the front of the Bryn Celli Ddu burial mound, or is it?  This is actually a fake maybe ritualistic entrance, while the real way in is around the back!

Arthurs fence – Weekly Prompts – Fences

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

Well I have to say I found this quite hard, I started questioning what a fence was! How many rails constitutes a fence? More than one? But does two count as a fence if the primary purpose is to stop transition from one are to another, but what if it is just to aid/stop human movement?  Can it be made of stone? Or is that always a wall?  Oh well I will be asking myself these questions all day now.  Needless to say I have not got a picture of some one who buys and sells stolen jewelry to make things easier!  And I have quite a few where the gate is the focus, but they do not really show the fence.

Anyway this is what I came up with. . . A 3 photo stitch taken at one of the many ‘Arthur’s stones’ last year.
