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.

Is this my best side – Friendly Friday: Posing

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

Which brings me to the prompt for this week’s Friendly Friday photo challenge – the prompt is Posing.

We were walking around Tally Abbey this week when this sheep almost said ‘Can you take my picture, and make sure you have my best side, I have my best ear studs in and everything!’, it then proceeded to strike this pose.

Use me – Friendly Friday: Looking up

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

This week on Friendly Friday I am asking you to join in and create a post sharing your interpretation of the prompt : –
LOOKING UP

Well I had a fair few photos where I had taken pictures from the ground looking up, in the case of some megaliths I was often lying on the ground looking up.  However I happened up this photo I had taken and thought it was an interesting slant on the brief.  What better instrument to use when tasked with the challenge of looking up!

#49 – Friendly Friday: Mood

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

What’s your mood?
That’s the theme for this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge.

Well on Thursday night we had travelled up to visit my father, and on Good Friday we had travelled further north to take both him and my wife’s mother out for lunch.  We had a great day and the weather was lovely, my mood was ‘loving and loved’.  On the Saturday I knew we had planned a visit to a stone circle, this would be number 49 of 50 that my wife is attempting to visit before her 50th birthday in June this year.  So my mood was ‘excited’, as I have only visited this circle twice before and it is probably about 16 years since the last visit.  So a 9 photo stitch of this grand circle in its magnificent surroundings.

Down in the woods – Friendly Friday: Photo walk

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

It’s Friendly Friday again and the theme for this week is Photo Walk.

What catches your eye?

A walk down in our local woods always means there is a photo opportunity. So here are a few shots to give you a feel for what catches my eye, when there are no stone circles, ancient monuments, vast open landscapes, or cats to be found.
