Here lie Vikings – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Back Catalog

This week Frank challenges us with the topic:

As often happens, when I start going through the archives, I find something that I just might want to treat in a different manner… That led me to the theme for this week: Back Catalog.

The image below, reworked for this post always catches my attention, taken with the old Dimage Z3, taken on the first day of our honeymoon , this picture always grabs my attention. Not from any great sense of compositional skill, but the subject matter.  These are recreated Viking grave markers in a church that if I remember rightly was somewhere near Greystoke.  I remember suddenly being overtaken by the sense that my wife and I were embarking on a new journey, but all around were the signs that our ancestors were watching over us, I was overcome with a feeling of contentment, not the usual feeling I get when I visit a graveyard!

Twisted Pandas – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: June 27, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

Someone out there knows why, but not me!

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.

Sacred space and a special cat – K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Rebirth and remembrance.

Each week, K’lee and Dale offer  prompts for us to consider as the latest challenge.  This week it is:

Rebirth and remembrance

Well my first photo is of a barrow near the stone circle, the Druids circle near Penmaenmawr.  These places must have been a place of remembrance for the ancient people of this land, and perhaps to a place of rebirth.

And for my second photo, a picture of our lovely cat Darkle snoozing in the sun, she lived a long life, and is missed and remembered fondly.

Fire in the sky – A Photo a Week Challenge: Fire

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Sunshine’, saying:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF FIRE

Well I decided to twist the brief a little, as I was looking through the archives for ‘Fire’, I saw this photo, taken while on holiday in Cornwall some years ago.  Well the sun counts as fire does it not?
