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?

A moments – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Peace

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

The challenge I bring to you is to share posts that evoke the sense of peace for you, in whatever form that might take.

Here is my wife finding a moments peace in the gentle waves at Godrevy.

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 🙂

Happy way – Which Way Challenge: September 27th, 2019

Each Friday Sam  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.

Walking this way always makes me happy, as it means we are in Cornwall, and more importantly West Penwith, and going to the Men-an-Tol.

Lined Up – Weekly Prompts: Line-up

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

The Saturday photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Line-up.

Lots of possibilities here – Line em up and shoot em… photographs that is!

Line-up – The cast of a theatrical show, a list of players in a sports event, a queue, a row. But You don’t need us to help you out, GC and I are certain you’ll have plenty of ideas of your own so we’ll leave you to it.

The first – two stones that are part of a stone row, a line, lined up, but also lines that go up.

The second – A slightly cheeky entrant of a line that is up!

And finally the third – the Up line from St. Ives to Carbis bay.

Magenta Roses – Weekly Prompts: Magenta Rose

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge that launches on the first Saturday of each month, and continues thoughout the month. The colour for September is Magenta Rose.

I don’t know about you, but I never realised there were so many different names for pink, and I’m not even sure how many photos I can find for the shade of Magenta Rose, but that’s the challenge, and the hunt is part of the fun!

Bit of a cheat as they did start of as very dark burgundy roses, but I did want to use roses, and fuchsias were well fuchsia, pinks where pink… Not quite the shade of ‘Magenta rose’, but certainly now Magenta roses!

Ice Cream – A Photo a Week Challenge: Traditions.

This week  Nancy has challenged us with the following:


Ever since we had our honeymoon it has become tradition that we share photos of any Ice cream we eat with our friends on Facebook, it is also now tradition that we do not share the flavours until we are asked what they are by a particular friend.

Vanessa Atalanta – Weekly Prompts: Close

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

Close-up, close to, close shave, close off, close the door! Contrasting definitions of the one spelling.

This is one of those words in the English language that varies in definition by the way it is pronounced. Close ( clothes) the door cannot be confused with a close (klos) shave.

Well so much for your linguistic lesson for this week. 😀

Which one will you choose? We can’t wait to find out!

Interpret this challenge in any way you choose; photographs, a piece of writing, or rhyme. Whatever your choice, have fun with it!

So a ‘close-up’ of a Red Admiral about to ‘close’ its wings, well it may have been opening them but I claim artistic licence.  I might have cropped it a bit ‘close-r’ but I did not realise how scary their faces were!
