I can almost smell it – #SundayStills: #Close-up

This week Teri  challenged us with:

Calling all photographers and creatives who really like a challenge this week! Last July 2018, I challenged Sunday Stillers to a macro-photography challenge. I thought it was time to offer another macro or close-up photography challenge this week.

Not quite as close as I sometimes get, but I just liked this the way it was.

Flowering – #SundayStills: #Yellow

This week Teri has challenged us with:

I’ve always associated the month of August with the color yellow.
You guessed it, this week’s Sunday Stills theme is anything yellow.

Plenty of yellow in this one, such a cheery happy colour, makes me smile.

This week she said floral, and so it shall be.

The smell of garlic – Sunday Stills: #Paths

This week in Teri is back, and  has challenged us with:

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “paths.”

Well I have a fair few photos of paths and trails, and was looking through my archives and noticed this one.  The smell of garlic was almost tangible in the air as I looked at it!

Currant flowers – Photo for the Month – 36: Overlay

This Month for the Photo for the Month, Bren asks:

This week’s challenge is Overlay.

I do make quite extensive use of overlays, however quite often they are scaled back to the point where they only just show, or are masked from portions of the image.  However for this challenge I decided to use one of my favourites but to let it shine through, it is a sort of rainbow burn texture.  So first the ‘mostly’ unedited photo.

And here is the image with the overlay added.  I think it looks a little like it should be on an old chocolate box lid.

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own simplicity post.

Sometimes it is as simple as pointing the camera in the right direction and clicking the button.
