Wave rider – Weekly Prompts: Surface

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

So, what will you do with the word, how will you respond to our Surface Challenge?

I love the idea of surfing, I can not swim so its a no no for me, but that mystical ability to ride upon the surface of fluid, that exists in that liminal space between water and air, captures my imagination when ever I see surfers.

Surfs up! – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Action

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

After all this rest, I thought it might be a good idea to get everything moving again, which led me to this week’s theme of Action!

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.

I wish I had wings – Weekly Prompts – Wings

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Wings’ as the theme for their challenge.

This weekend GC and I have chosen WINGS as your Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge.

Well I went with the slightly obvious for my first shot, taken at Arlington court, on a cold and rainy day, I did not take nearly as many photos as I normally would.

And the second photo on a lovely warm day at the end of last summer , while in Cornwall.  I think I can get away with this as both the surfboard and the kite are sometimes referred to as wings!

Sennen – Weekly Photo Challenge: Under Cloudy Skies

This week The ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks us to:

Photograph Under Cloudy Skies
I don’t usually think much of going out to photograph on a cloudy day, but these days can sometimes be the most rewarding. Also, sometimes a bit cold in winter so wrap up warm! . . . Instead head out for a quick look at the clouds this week to see if they’re doing anything interesting.

Where possible I always like to use photos from the current set I am working on – the inner challenge – not always possible, but at present I am editing a set of pictures from our trip to Cornwall in September.  So here are a couple of Sennen Cove for you.
