This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Looks Like a Face’.
I always think that this profile of Long Meg looks like a face, in fact I think she would be rather at home in an episode of the Simpsons!
‘Meg’s smile’, Long Meg and her daughters, Cumbria, 2017.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Fences and Gates’.
Well I am not really sure if this counts as a fence, but both the woodwork and the ironwork look like fences, so I thought I would use this shot from the weekend. We were at Lynton and this is some of the architectural detail on the town hall.
‘Stone, wood and iron’, Lynton, 2019.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Murals’.
I don’t have many photos of Murals, street art, or graffiti, I must rectify this, get out with the camera and take some.
But here is a photo of a mural on a house wall at Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, a most remarkable place.
‘Wild fantasy’, Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, 2017.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Tender Moments’.
So looking through the archives I found a photo of this sculpture. This was taken while we were on honeymoon in Cumbria, but on a day visit up to Gretna Green.
‘Embrace’, Gretna Green, 2011.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Isolated objects’.
So I am going to cheat a bit here because I like the photo, it was taken in 2009 by my wife. I enjoy the isolated feel you get walking in the countryside, and I also enjoy the way the object – myself, has been isolated in this shot. I also enjoy how much younger I look 10 years ago if I am honest :).
‘Not quite a selfie’, Brynna ridgeway, 2009.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Made by Humans’.
Well I thought I would have to use a picture of a stone circle, and what better to use than Stonehenge, not my personal favorite circle, but such an enigma, just how was it built by humans?
‘Walking at Stonehenge’, Stonehenge, 2017.
This week Cee challenges us with:
This week the topic is Horns. Your horn can be any of the following:
animal horns (antler)
As soon as I saw the post I knew which photo I wanted to rework for this, it is from way back in the archives when I was using the Fuji HS20. Not sure why this has stuck in my memory for so long, but it did.
‘Moo you looking at’, Merthyr Mawr, 2012.
For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:
This week the topic is Anything Construction Related. This topic is quite huge. See if any of you can come up with something way out of the box.
So my first photo is of an ancient roundhouse at Grimspound on Dartmoor.
‘Ancient Construction’, Grimspound, Dartmoor, 2015.
The second is of what a completed roundhouse may have looked like.
‘Roundhouse’, Lower Merrypit farm, Dartmoor, 2014.
And finally as far out of the box as my thinking would take me, a photo of the room where my band Kantref recorded our album. If you try hard enough you can see the notes floating in the air, the music and album are under construction, the photo taken at a moment when the construction workers have downed tools for a cup of tea.
‘Music Construction’, Old Schoolhouse, 2014.
For this weeks challenge Cee asks us:
This week the topic is In the Distance. Stretch yourself a little with this one.
Well I only just made it, as there will soon be a new B&W challenge from Cee – but here are two shots taken at Mitchell’s Fold Stone Circle last year.
‘Standing’, Mitchell’s Fold, Shropshire, 2018.
‘Preparing to paint’, Mitchell’s Fold, Shropshire, 2018.
For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:
This week the topic is Unusual Perspective. It can be a photo with a different perspective than you usually take. Stretch yourself a little with this one. This is a topic you can really have enjoy. Let’s see how creative you can get. I’m looking forward to what you all decide to post.
So the first shot is from as unedited set of photos from last years trip to the Lake district in October.
The next from a dip into the archives, a shot taken while recording the Kantref album in 2014.
And the third, also from the 2014 archives, of the Coast B&B [Cornwall] cat sat on the picnic bench at the front of the building, taken from a top room window.
