Arches – Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Fake

This Friday we are challenged with:

I’m not a photography purist but I know many people are quite opinionated about heavy photo editing. Well, here is your chance to do it with permission – let’s be fake this Friday!
If you’re not into the idea of photo editing, there are other ways to interpret the theme. You could, for instance, post photos of plastic flowers, the contents of your makeup bag, or even a tofu burger. The options are unlimited!

I quite often embrace what some people see as fake when I edit my photos, I see them as just another way to express my artistic side.  So here is a very fake photo for you.

From one end to the other – Friendly Friday: Alleys

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

The prompt for this Friday is:
Alleys

From one end to the other – not just the length of the Alley but a reference to the fact that the photos are taken at opposite ends of the UK.

The first a photo taken in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, to explain my title the streets here were used in the original Wickerman film.

My second alley is in St. Ives, Cornwall, how we love the narrow streets and alleys here.  Not really an alley, more of a narrow street, but I love this place.
