Each week at XingfuMama we are asked to ‘Pull up a seat‘.
I particularly like this one, I like the craftsmanship shown in the jointing, the simplicity of the arc, the way the seat stretches and fills the void between the walls, enfolding the tree. At first look very simple, but I think a lot of thought has gone into this.
‘Arc’, Fountains Abbey, 2019.
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I have chosen the following.
‘A place to sit’, Fountains Abbey, 2019.
This week the friendly Friday photography challenge has Manja as a guest host again, and is:
Welcome and a most Friendly Friday to you all. Today I stand in for Amanda again as the host of our beloved challenge. The theme she emailed me is not surprising, considering that she has just built a house: construction.
So one of my favourite elements of Construction and architecture, arches.
‘Arches’, Fountains abbey, 2019.
This week Bren challenged us with:
The theme for this week is Windows.
A once magnificent window at Fountains Abbey, I could just imagine the light streaming through stained glass.

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Tree art‘. So here is a lovely bit of wickerwork.
‘Monk’, Fountains Abbey, 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.
A monk and a pig – in Wickerwork.
‘Wicker pig’, Fountains Abbey, 2019.
This week Teri challenged us with:
It seems like the right time to experiment with some layers for the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge this week.
An interesting wicker monk at Fountains abbey, layered up with the abbey itself, and a number of different textures.

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 monument(al) post.
If there is one thing my library is not short of it is photos of monuments and the monumental. So here is a photo from our recent trip to Fountains abbey, a truly monumental building.
‘Reaching for an answer’, Fountains abbey, 2019.
For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:
bridges are built for many reasons, to cross a river, to heal a relationship
please share your pics or stories about bridges you’ve seen or crossed …
or take this opportunity to showcase your collection of bridge pics!
Whether through your lens or using creative writing … go where the prompt leads!
‘Where trolls live’, Fountains Abbey, 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.
‘Shady way’, Fountains Abbey, 2019.
