Dancing Stones – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Made by Humans

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?

Moo you looking at – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Horns

This week Cee challenges us with:

This week the topic is Horns. Your horn can be any of the following:

brass instrument
car horns
animal horns (antler)
Other

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.

Ancient tunes – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

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.

The second is of what a completed roundhouse may have looked like.

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.

Cee’s B&W challenge this week is that of ‘Perspective’, so here is a shot taken in the gardens of Coleton Fishacre during our July trip to Dartmoor and the surrounding area.  This is one of those photos that just happened, and I am not at all sure why I walked into the centre of all this bamboo and took it, but I am glad I did.Bamboo
