… skies the limit, be sublime, fluffy or grey … please share that!

Well no food to tantalise you or make your stomach grumble this week.  I love a good cloudy sky in my photos, so here is one from last year while we were on holiday in Dumfries and Galloway, the skies were just amazing the entire time we were there!  So a 4 photo panoramic stitch for you this week.

Cream tease – Friday Fun: Construction

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

Please share ‘construction’ in a photo, poem or story?

Hmm so last week I used a photo of ice cream, and this week it will be a cream tea, you are all going to think all I do is eat!  We went strawberry picking, we had no scones, but welsh cakes were a good substitution, don’t call me a heretic, and lets not get onto the whole topic of – Jam or cream first!  Of course in my opinion the object of the game is to get a ‘healthy’ dollop of clotted cream.  Just like making a perfect cuppa, there is something I enjoy about the motions, the ritual of assembling, constructing, a cream tea.  And of course it is about eating them :).

Memories of a day out – Friday Foto Fun: Reflections

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share how, where, why you ‘reflect’ in a photo, poem or story?

Editing photos of a day out I often reflect on what we did on that day, a smile twitching at the side of my lips as I add layers, subtly altering the memories of the day.  And sometimes I reflect upon the memory of a reflection.

Indulgence – Friday Foto Fun: Luxury

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share your version of luxury in a photo, poem or story?

A little luxury that we often indulge in while on holiday, or when we have a day out is to have an ice cream.  It has become common practice over on facebook to post pictures of my wife holding the ‘ice cream of the day’, something we started doing nine years ago while on honeymoon.  Flavours are listed, we try them so you do not have to, (you can if you want), the oddest flavours have to have been ‘Irn Bru’ and ‘Newcastle brown ale’, not together I hasten to add!

So a photo taken in Cornwall, featuring the lush ‘Moomaid’ icecream, and I think the flavours were, salted caramel, and blackberry sorbet.

Last – Friday Foto Fun: Mythical

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share are mythical photo, poem or story?

While actually a real historical person and not a ‘mythic’ character, I decided to use this photo of the statue of ‘Llywelln ap Gruffudd’ taken on our recent trip through Llandovery, it was created by sculptors Toby and Gideon Petersen and has stood on the castle mound above the town since 2001, the 600th anniversary of his death.

While a real person there are obviously many myths that surround him, and he has of course featured in several historical fictional novels.

Standing watching – Friday Foto Fun: Moody

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share are moody pic, poem or story?

I love moody skies, though it usually means rain is never far away, which in turn makes me moody when we are on holiday visiting ancient sites, and walking in the wilds.  So here is a moody sky for you, did it rain – probably!

Keys to a lost library – Friday Foto Fun: Libraries

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share something about your local library or one you’ve visited?
Whether through your lens or by creative writing …
Post a photo or get creative … we all write so libraries are places we should know!

I had no idea what to use for this challenge, even though I work in a library!  However as I was tidying some things today, I found some keys, they used to open the doors to a library that is no longer there, happily in this case it was replaced by a new build, but that is not always the way these times.

Evening drama – Friday Foto Fun: Dramatic

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share something that you consider dramatic?
Whether through your lens or your creative writing …
Post a photo or get creative … stir our emotions!

Well I knew I was going to use a photo from this set for this challenge, I just had to choose one.  I have used a few photos of the River Nith before, the skys, shadows and reflections were all full of drama on our evening walks along the Nith in Glencaple last year.  It is fair to say the whole visit had quite a dramatic effect on me.

Hurty head! – Friday Foto Fun: serious signs

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

What signs have warned or directed your way?
Please share what significant signs have guided you …
either through your lens or in your own words?
Post a photo or get creative … add some humour!

I knew which photo I wanted to use for this immediately, a photo from some eleven years ago, funny how you retain some memories.  So here is a photo taken by my lovely wife as this was too good a challenge theme not to use it.  To be fair on myself I did not disregard the sign, I had just come from the corridor but had miscalculated hat head gap height coupled with the stair angle, that is my excuse anyway!  I could have easily entitled this one ‘pouty lip’, but instead went with …
