Pick and read! – Photo for the Week – 41 – Books

This week Bren challenged us with:

The theme for this week is Books.

So a Photo I have used before, of some of the shelves in our house, but edited in a new way.  It is sometimes hard to choose what book to read next, I live in a house surrounded by books, I work with books, and sometimes the choose seems daunting, indeed I sometimes walk through a literary desert where I do not read for a few weeks! In fact I am thirsty, and parched now, this is something that stresses my wife out :).  But then I will return to the  haven of the pages sometimes immersing myself in the safety of 2 or 3 imagined worlds at a time, or the imagined truth of ‘fact’. However it is easy to slip from thirst to drowning, to loose oneself entirely, and I cannot swim! Sometimes I need to come to the surface and breathe.

More than you can shake a stick at – Photo for the Week – 32 – Circles

This weeks for the Photo for the Week, Bren asks:

The challenge for this week is Circles

Well I had to use a stone circle, you would expect it of me I am sure.  So another favorite circle, the Merry Maidens in Cornwall.

And because we were asked for circles and not circle, here is another:

And then just to prove I can get more than one circle in a photo at one time.

Magnificently monumental – Photo for the Week – 30 – Landscape

This weeks PFTW challenge from Bren is:

Anyway here is this week’s challenge and it is Landscape.  Your landscape can be of anything, mountains, fields, even a landscape of a field of flowers or crops.  Or it can be of anything in landscape format.  The interpretation of Landscape is entirely up to you.

I am still in the process of editing some of last years photos of our trip to the Lake district with friends.  So here is a photo of Castlerigg stone circle and the magnificent surrounding landscape.

Looking for curves – Photo for the Week – 29 – Curves

This weeks PFTW challenge from Bren is – Curves.

This sculpture by Peter Randall-Page Ra ‘Slip of the lip’  has plenty of curves, with a few more added for good measure in post.

This photo of a friend on a bike in Copenhagen although full of strait lines, is also dominated by its curves.  And just out of shot, the object of the bike riders gaze, is a sculpture which was full of curves.  It is situated in the park where Ørestads Blvd intersects with Vejlands Allé, for those that are interested.
