Carbis – A Photo a Week Challenge: View.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF YOUR FAVORITE VIEW OR VIEWS.

Again a lot to choose from, but as Nancy said favourite, this one has to be right up there as it means we are on holiday in Cornwall staying at the Coast B&B.

Distant harbour – Weekly Photo Challenge : Oh, the Place You’ll Go

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

Photograph the Places You’ll Go

You will have to visit Jenn’s site to get a full description of how we can photograph the Place you’ll go, but here is a photograph of St. Ives in Cornwall, I am fairly sure we will revisit this Distant harbour in the not too distant future!

Mists of Time – Tuesday Photo Challenge: Ancient.

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

your challenge is to portray that which connects you to all things Ancient. As usual, there are many ways to approach the Ancient (I’ll even take Ancient Aliens!), so I’m sure that your creative minds will come up with something interesting!

Those of you who visit often will find my choice of photo to connect me to ancient relatively unsurprising.  This was taken on a wet misty morning, my feet got very wet!

Not though my way – Which Way Challenge: May 23, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way 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.

Actually this was taken after we had been this way, are we wanted back or being kept out?

Indulgence – Friday Foto Fun: Luxury

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share your version of luxury in a photo, poem or story?

A little luxury that we often indulge in while on holiday, or when we have a day out is to have an ice cream.  It has become common practice over on facebook to post pictures of my wife holding the ‘ice cream of the day’, something we started doing nine years ago while on honeymoon.  Flavours are listed, we try them so you do not have to, (you can if you want), the oddest flavours have to have been ‘Irn Bru’ and ‘Newcastle brown ale’, not together I hasten to add!

So a photo taken in Cornwall, featuring the lush ‘Moomaid’ icecream, and I think the flavours were, salted caramel, and blackberry sorbet.
