This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:
Double trouble, double-time, two’s company, take two …. the world is filled with references to twosomes. This week, let’s double our pleasure and focus on things that come in twos.
So another in the ‘wife holds ice cream’ series, just to make sure you all know, one of these ice creams is destined for me, can you guess which one is mine? The clue might be the fact that I have a sizeable moustache and beard.
‘Double treats’, St. Ives, 2019.
For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

Well it amused me 🙂

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS SHOWING A TRADITION YOU HAVE.
Ever since we had our honeymoon it has become tradition that we share photos of any Ice cream we eat with our friends on Facebook, it is also now tradition that we do not share the flavours until we are asked what they are by a particular friend.
‘Ice Cream’, Hells Mouth, Cornwall, 2019.
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.
‘Indulgence’, Cornwall, 2016.
This week Bren challenged us to submit a monochrome image based on the theme of Dining.
Anybody who looks through the archive of photos I have taken, and indeed a look back over some previous blog posts, would think that while on holiday we survive on ice cream, so not to dissuade you from those thoughts.
‘Cones for Kings and Queens’, Dumfries, 2018.
For this weeks One Word Sunday Challenge Debbie asks the following:
Welcome to One Word Sunday – over to all of you to join the challenge with your own night post.
So here are a few submissions:
‘Camping’, The Dingle, Govilon, S.Wales, 2015.
‘Warmth in the water’, St. Ives, Cornwall, 2014.
‘Ice Cream for all’, St. Ives, Cornwall, 2014.
This week for her challenge Cee asks:
This week the topic is Rainbow Colors (must have at least 4 different colors in your photo) and there is no specific topic.
As soon as I saw the challenge I thought that I must use a photo of my lovely wife wearing rainbow colours, and I expect most of our friends would think the same when presented with the topic of rainbow.
‘Ice Cream on a Friday’, Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot Museum, 2013.
This weeks challenge asks:
In the final edition of the Weekly Photo Challenge, Daily Post staff contributors share their favorite photos and invite you to do the same.
Sadly this is the last “Daily post weekly photo challenge”, and therefore I will have to look elsewhere for my prompts to blog, its been fun to follow, but it is sad to see this challenge come to an end.
So a photo for all time favorites – not just a favorite photo [reworked for the competition], but a favorite location, a favorite treat, and a favorite person:
I thought that for this weeks entry into the Daily Post photo challenge, that of ‘Treat’, I would post the following photo.
A double treat:
Ice cream – an indulgence we succumb to while on holiday, often one a day, trying to find the oddest flavours.
Portreath beach – a treat for Karen, who loves it here as it brings back childhood memories.
I can’t remember what the flavours were – only that they were good.
