This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

Nostalgia

Sifting through old photos makes me nostalgic, this weekend it was a friends 40th Birthday party, 10 years ago we had all been to the Outer Hebrides when he was 30 – how time flies!

Two for the price of one – Thursday Doors – March 7, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors, I have been going back over some photos of a trip to the Outer Hebrides.  So here is a picture from within one of the Norse Mill buildings on the Isle of Lewis, looking out of the doorway, at the door of the other building.

Peat – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge – February 7, 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 went looking in the archives, friends had mentioned a holiday that had me looking back through some old shots.  I found this photo taken on a Minolta Dimage Z3.  While the photo itself is not that much of an oddball, being of a peat cutting ditch in the Outer Hebrides, the resultant mirrored image is a bit of an oddity.

Looking at old shots – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Black and White

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Black and White and there is no specific topic.  Let’s keep this challenge strictly black and white.

I have been looking back over a lot of old photos recently, taken on Cameras other than the A6000 I usually use, and here are a few I liked.
