Fantasy – One word Sunday Challenge: Symmetry, & Which Way photo challenge – January 31 2020.

This week Debbie  challenged us with the following:

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

And each Friday San challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo 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. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

I always enjoy taking pictures and turning them into symmetrical images, those with trees I find, always take on the ethereal, a touch of the fantasy realms. Perhaps by mirroring the image we are allowed in some way a brief glimpse into those worlds that lie just beyond our sight!

Once I have mirrored them I usually treat them just like any other photo, lightening, darkening, filtering, and general tinkering with different portions, and thus the result is always, not quite symmetrical, in an attempt to fool the eye.

Walking this way always makes me happy, as it means we are in Cornwall, and more importantly West Penwith, and going to the Men-an-Tol.

For this first week with Sam at the helm I thought I would choose a photo from my archives, those of you who follow me know from recent posts I may have been perusing some old photos recently.  Well this one drew my attention,  I am going to go out on a limb and say it has 3 ways! A path to and through the stones for the modern visitor, the road way that runs along side, visible by its hedgerow, and maybe just a glimpse of the sacred ancient way!

The smell of garlic – Sunday Stills: #Paths

This week in Teri is back, and  has challenged us with:

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “paths.”

Well I have a fair few photos of paths and trails, and was looking through my archives and noticed this one.  The smell of garlic was almost tangible in the air as I looked at it!
