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.

When the snow came – Photo for the Week – 28 – Winter

This weeks PFTW challenge from Bren is – Winter.  So here are two photos from last year when we had a pretty heavy snow fall (for around here).  This is by the time it had started to thaw a bit, the difference between elevation of the two photos is not that great really but enough that the temperature and difference in the depth of the drifts was!

Memories – Photo for the Week – 27 – Time

This week Bren sets the topic for the ‘Photo for the Week’ as ‘Time’.

The challenge for this week is Time. And for the challenge as long as time is reflected anything goes. It could be a watch, clock, the time of a season, or even heritage.  Anything that reflects time.

So here are two pictures of a pocket watch, it is over twenty years since this kept good time, when I used to wear it when I went out for the night.  Before it was mine it was my grandfathers last watch so it also represents time in a different way as well.  So when wound up this watch can walk forwards in time with me, but also take me back.
