Time, Landscape, Art – Friday Fun: Layers

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

Layer upon layer, they might weave, compliment or contrast
but layers draw our attention
Whether through your lens or with creative writing … go where the prompt leads!

I sometimes feel I step back through the layers of history when I visit sites such as these, they always tend to be sited where the panorama is many layered, and they always lead me to explore the layers of my creativity.

Reborn tides and Tidal spirits – Friendly Friday: Ebb and Flow

This Friday, ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ and ‘Something to Ponder About’ have challenged us with:

Publish a ‘Friendly Friday – Ebb and Flow,’ post

I have used this photo before, for a different challenge, however I thought I would re-edit it, and thus this image itself takes on a certain ebb and flow as it is reborn.  A tidal river shaped by the ebb and flow of water over the years.

I thought I would also add this one, not only because it contains the ebb and flow between life and death, the humans who have been christened, married, have worshipped, and been buried here.  But also the ebb and flow of a religion, the old abbey, the ‘new’ church.

2 grey ladies – Friendly Friday: Twins

This Friday, ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ and ‘Something to Ponder About’ have challenged us with:

the theme for Friendly Friday this week is Twins.

There are actually more than 2 stones in this circle, but I thought this photo of two of them fit the bill.  They are made of the same things, but shaped by hands and weather so that they look different, yet still I believe they share a common purpose, they are the same inside, sisters forever standing against the rigours of the world.  Only four stones remain of what once was a 45-foot circle of stones. The stones are the tallest in Derbyshire, they are sometimes known as the grey ladies.

Acres of sky – Friday Fun: Clouds

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

Please share a few of your ‘cloud’ photos, poetry or stories?
Whether through your lens or with creative writing … go where the prompt leads!
Post a photo or get creative
… 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 :).
