From these clouds I gently weep. – K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Seraphic; Diaphanous; Immutable!.

Each week, K’lee and Dale offer  prompts for us to consider as the latest challenge.  This week it was K’lee with:

I tried something different- a three part/possibility prompt:

SERAPHIC

DIAPHANOUS

IMMUTABLE

Now, as with all our challenges, Dale and I typically leave the interpretation and execution up to you the challenge participants. In other words, it’s not necessary to take on all three words unless you are feeling so inclined.

Well I tried my best to get all three words into this one image, I would like to say that was why I was late with the post, but I was just pretty busy this weekend!  So I will leave it to you to decide how I interperated the words, though if you take a look over at K’lee and Dale’s sites you will easily see the comparisons.

Speedy and water power – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Wheels

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Wheels’.

Well I thought I better go with the obvious for the first shot, some wheels on a car, all be it a very diminutive vehicle.

Lift – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lift

In this weeks challenge Dutch goes the Photo! asks:

After we cleared the heady scenes from the past week, which were great fun and very creative, it’s time to let our spirits rise.  With that in mind, I think that we take this week’s challenge with the theme of Lift!  As you’ve learned to expect, this is another theme that you can take into multiple directions, so let your imagination run wild and submit that, which tickles your fancy!

However for once I have chosen to be literal, so here is a picture of a lift in Carlisle castle.
