Hotdesk! – Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Funny Furry Friends

This week the Friendly Friday photography challenge  asks:

Whether by choice or necessity, many of us have been house-bound these last few weeks. At times like this, it’s good to be held captive with those you like the most. Like – Love – Obsess – Whatever you call it, most of us have a soft spot for our furry companions.

For this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge I ask you to share a photo of, or homage to, your FUNNY FURRY FRIENDS.

Working from home has its benefits and drawbacks – this chap is both!  “Please I want to Hotdesk with you!”

King Roswell – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Cat

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

As our household grew by the arrival of a Siberian Forest Cat, while I was in India, I thought I’d dedicate this week’s challenge to the theme of Cat! Among all of our pets, cats tend most imbued with mystery and often a bit of aloofness. Plus they feature large in plays and mythology, so they are a great source for inspiration of all kinds. Please bring your most enjoyable cat to the forefront this week and let them reign supreme over the challenge (it’s just like being home for them!).

Hello human – Weekly Photo Challenge : Unexpected Beauty

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

This week the challenge is to….
Photograph Unexpected Beauty
It doesn’t matter what sort of beauty. Any beauty will do!
The best is when I find beauty when I’m not expecting it. Finding a ray of sun on a weed or a splash of color in a dingy building.

When we visited Lynmouth and Lynton in March this year, I finished my meal in the small cafe at the top of the railway before anyone else.  I decided to nip out and take a few shots from the top looking across the waters to Wales.  As I walked up the path I encountered this ‘Unexpected Beauty’, (s)he saw me coming and ran toward me, leaping up onto what must be a favourite fussing spot when encountering passing travellers, purrs, strokes, rubs and tickles were the order of the day.

Smiles – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: April 25, 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.

This week Falco refused to sit still for his smiley portrait, instead he wanted to lick my fingers and the piece of paper.

Sacred space and a special cat – K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Rebirth and remembrance.

Each week, K’lee and Dale offer  prompts for us to consider as the latest challenge.  This week it is:

Rebirth and remembrance

Well my first photo is of a barrow near the stone circle, the Druids circle near Penmaenmawr.  These places must have been a place of remembrance for the ancient people of this land, and perhaps to a place of rebirth.

And for my second photo, a picture of our lovely cat Darkle snoozing in the sun, she lived a long life, and is missed and remembered fondly.
