Scallops – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: May 2, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

This week I was sat looking up at the ceiling in my study, and was overcome with an urge to photograph it, due to the patterns that the light and resultant shadow were casting.

And I could not resist doing something else with the resultant picture, maybe an album cover?

Last weekend we were away down in Cornwall again, for an brief but lovely break.  Anyway Cee’s B&W challenge this week is the topic of Reflections and Shadows, so here are two recent photos from the trip that I hope reflect the topic.

The first ‘Eye eye’ a submision for Reflections, was taken at Karen’s request while sitting near Pendeen lighthouse.


The second ‘Chun hand’ a submission for the shadow part of this challenge was taken at Chun Quoit.


I thought quite hard about whether to choose one image relating to the topic, one relating to just half the topic, or as you can see these two which I quite liked.
