Reading – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge – March 28, 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.

While I do not rate this as an oddball from the perspective that I have taken it, it is after all a sculpture that I quite liked the look of.  I think it can qualify as an oddball due to the subject matter – Person sat reading on top of an oxen, is it comfy? Does it stay still? Perhaps they are reading a map and are lost!

Way in – Which Way Challenge: March 28, 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.

So here is a photo of the driveway leading up to Dyffryn house.

Butterfly effect: Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

This weeks challenge is that of Chaos – Complete disorder and confusion.

” In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.”

Sat among the apparent chaos of nature was this butterfly – what will happen when it flaps its wings?
