Acorn way – Which Way Challenge: March 13th, 2020

Each Friday San challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

Sunset seas – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #85: Treasure Hunt

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists asks:

This week we’re going on a Treasure Hunt! The challenge is to search for specific items – either from your archives or newly captured – from the list below. Extra credit items are a bit more challenging. Focus on quality over quantity and hit us with your best shot(s)!

Challenge Items: Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall
Extra Credit Items: An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image. My opening image, for example, includes a sunrise, a seascape and birds in a single shot. See how easy it is?! 😀

So here is a shot from the archives, warm sunset over a cold Cornish sea, and there might even be a hint of a boat out toward the horizon.  Taken on an old 2mp Dimage Z3, but still a lovely photo at this size I feel.  Well if I get chance this week I am going to go on a hunt for some of the other treasured items, but for now . . .

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?
