Light stairway – Friday Fun: Unusual

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

life is full of ‘unusual’ things
share your pics or stories about anything unusual …

It was an unusual photo before I decided to edit it, but it took me to unusual places.

Big Light – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Lighting.

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Lighting‘.

Took this on our recent holiday, I had no idea why, I just found it oddly pleasing, but it has come in useful now 🙂

Odd ball – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: June 13, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

Well a light really.

Wooded way – Which Way Challenge: June 06, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

Mysterious and tree lined.

Scallops – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: May 2, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

This week I was sat looking up at the ceiling in my study, and was overcome with an urge to photograph it, due to the patterns that the light and resultant shadow were casting.

And I could not resist doing something else with the resultant picture, maybe an album cover?

Light paws – One word Sunday Challenge – Movement

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own movement post.

So one of those rare occasions where I knew which photo I wanted to use, as I had seen it when answering another recent challenge. And serendipity struck as the photo next to it in the archive also fit the bill, and I had been looking for an excuse to use it.

Random items – Weekly Photo Challenge: Interesting Light

For this weeks challenge ‘Travelling at wits end’ asks us:

For this etude, look for the light first. Almost any subject can be enhanced if light is falling on it.

Well those of you who follow my blog know that most of the landscape shots I post make use of ‘interesting light, both natural and in post processing.  However for this challenge I wanted to move away from the landscape, so here is one of those oddball photos I took for just the very reason of how the light was falling, and the way the light streaming through the window was falling on the objects, and mixing with the light source from the room.  Without the light this would be a random boring flat shot, but the light made me stop, look, and shoot.

Channeled light – Sunday stills – Window

This week Hugh is hosting the Sunday stills challenge while Terri Webster Schrandt is on a blogging break.  And he asks:

Share with us your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about a window. What do you see when looking in or out of it? Is it only you that can see it? Describe what’s there.

So here is a photo from the archives, taken on our 2012 trip to France, on our way home after playing at a festival out there.  The way light enters religious buildings has always inspired me, and you cannot help but feel a sense of awe when standing in a cathedral or large church watching how sunlight is channeled through windows to illuminate the architecture.
