Vanessa Atalanta – Weekly Prompts: Close

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

Close-up, close to, close shave, close off, close the door! Contrasting definitions of the one spelling.

This is one of those words in the English language that varies in definition by the way it is pronounced. Close ( clothes) the door cannot be confused with a close (klos) shave.

Well so much for your linguistic lesson for this week. 😀

Which one will you choose? We can’t wait to find out!

Interpret this challenge in any way you choose; photographs, a piece of writing, or rhyme. Whatever your choice, have fun with it!

So a ‘close-up’ of a Red Admiral about to ‘close’ its wings, well it may have been opening them but I claim artistic licence.  I might have cropped it a bit ‘close-r’ but I did not realise how scary their faces were!

Red rose and raindrops – A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

With the rain yesterday, I had fun capturing the raindrops on my tulips. Rain can be tricky to photograph, but raindrops on objects are a lot of fun. The give things a fresh feeling.


It had just been raining, it rained nearly every day during our visit to Dartmoor that year.

Bug, Beetle, Fish – One Word Sunday Challenge – Red

This week Debbie at ‘Travel with intent’ challenges us with:

Welcome to One Word sunday – over to all of you to join the challenge with your own red post.

Well I could have used one of the many photos of Red roses that I have, especially with valentines day approaching.  However I felt compelled to wander around the house and select some red objects to produce this result.
