Floating – One word Sunday Challenge: Sepia

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 sepia post.

Sometimes a photo screams to be in black and white, sometimes it needs a little colour, and sometimes you just want to bend it to your will.

I am not sure why I chose this photo, it was a mixture of just wanting to see what I could do with it, the incongruity of using what is seen as an old technique on an image with very definite modern elements, and an awareness that the sepia would pop on the highlights of the wet-suits.

This shelter is on the walk from Carbis to St. Ives, It is the shelter along side the Baulking house, a Huer’s lookout, a place to watch for pilchards and the movement of the tides.

Rock music – One word Sunday Challenge: Volume

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 volume post.

Mirroring Debbie’s own post I decided to use a Foghorn, after all there volume is apparent even when silent the potential is almost visible.   This one is on Pendeen Watch Lighthouse, and taken from an odd angle.

Reaching for an answer – One word Sunday Challenge: Monument / monumental

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 monument(al) post.

If there is one thing my library is not short of it is photos of monuments and the monumental.  So here is a photo from our recent trip to Fountains abbey, a truly monumental building.

Falling – One word Sunday Challenge: Triangle & Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fall

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 triangle post.

Heed the warning!

However I thought I would also use the above for this weeks challenge from Frank:

After a week of living the City life, I think it’s time to go back to Nature for this week’s theme. As Autumn approaches in the Norther Hemisphere, I thought it might be interesting to go for a theme that riffs on that concept with Fall. In the American version of the English language the season of Autumn is often called Fall. What I like about this theme is that the word fall can be taken into other directions, from trip and fall to Victoria Falls and many stops in between.

How can something so small be so perfectly formed? I crept closer and closer, at any moment I thought it would fly off!
