St. Ives – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #78 – Special Spot Shots

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Now we are looking forward to seeing Your very special spot shots – maybe a room in your home, a garden, a mountain, a city, an exhibition, a lovely café…a place that is special to you!

Well it was always going to be a shot of somewhere in Wales or Cornwall, Cornwall wins by the merit that it is not home.  So a shot of St. Ives and my wife.  To be accurate anywhere with my wife is a ‘special place’ 🙂

In the midst of the . . . – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Mist

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

Mist is more than just a fog, as it can also be a gentle, diffuse rain, which can provide very interesting light play. Unleash your creative brains and let them play with the theme to come up with those cool ideas that float around!

Have a lot of fun with this theme and make sure that no possible opportunity is missed (yes, I know…punny!)

Well another moment where I knew which series, the photos would use, would come from – this time way back in 2014.  And I could not resist my own pun with the blog title.

Double Entry – #ThursdayDoors: December 5th, 2019 & Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Two of Anything & Which Way photo challenge – December 6 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors, San asks us to post a which way, and this Thursday Cee also asked us to post Two of anything.

So here is a photo of a door which at first glance looks like two doors, but is in fact 1, and a gate, an entry to barn coupled with that to a field. And 2 ways in or out!  I wonder why the barn door is cut at that odd angle?

Soft Seas – Sunday Stills: #Favorite Photo

This week Teri  challenged us with:

With the holidays upon us, I thought I would make it easy for all of us at Sunday Stills this week to share a few of our favorite photos or some oldie-but-goodies. If you have a new favorite to share, well, go right ahead!

Well I would find it hard to choose a favourite photo, and especially one that has not yet been used for a challenge, so I thought I would choose a favourite from one of my most recent excursions that remains as yet unedited.  It is in fact a favourite place 🙂

‘Soft Seas’, Sandymouth bay, Cornwall, 2019.
