Night road – Tuesday Photo Challenge: Road.

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

I wanted something that allows for creativity, so I decided to use Road as a theme. There are many directions, into which you can take the Road, whether they are well-travelled or less taken!

Old in new – #ThursdayDoors: May 23, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  I particularly liked the fact this old wooden door was set in a brightly painted frame with a neon lit sign above.

Camping at night – Tuesday Photo Challenge: Night.

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

For this week’s challenge, I’m going for a darker subject: Night! Personally, I enjoy the look of shooting at night, as the contrast between light and dark is so pronounced. In your approach to this week’s theme, feel free to bring any old night into the light!

The first photo was the first time I had really explored shooting at night with the a6000 and as such this picture still has a warm place in my heart.  The subject matter may not be that good but it was fun beginning to explore the cameras capabilities at the time.  I have taken many better night shots over the years, but this brings a smile to my face.

The next photo is of St. Ives harbour, as many of you are aware, we just like it there.

Orange crushed – Weekly Prompts – Orange

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Orange’ as the theme for their challenge.

“Orange is the color of the sun. It is vital and a good color generally, indicating thoughtfulness and consideration of others.”  Those are the thoughts of Edgar Cayce who was an American clairvoyant.

You do not need to be a seer to appreciate the fact that the color orange is a dynamic tint and that when you are surrounded by this life enhancing shade you begin to feel better about yourself and the world around you.

This is the color that my partner Susan and myself have decided to emphasize for the month of March. This is an almost impossible shade to not run into in your everyday life.

With this thought in mind we encourage you to offer us your own photographic interpretation of this warm dynamic color. —  gc

So what to choose?

The first a very orange weed, made slightly more orange for this challenge.

And for my second choice, we had woken up in the middle of the night, and gone up to the common to look at the night sky.  We found mostly mist and light pollution.
