The Moo, Baa – Line – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: June 06, 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.

Like a chorus line but with cows and sheep!

Is this my best side – Friendly Friday: Posing

This Friday, Something to Ponder About and The Snow Melts Somewhere have challenged us with:

Which brings me to the prompt for this week’s Friendly Friday photo challenge – the prompt is Posing.

We were walking around Tally Abbey this week when this sheep almost said ‘Can you take my picture, and make sure you have my best side, I have my best ear studs in and everything!’, it then proceeded to strike this pose.

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘View from the Side‘.

So a photo from our recent walk above penmaenmawr.  This lamb is getting a good look at its mums side, and we are getting a good look at it’s side.

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.

Monk and sheep – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: April 4, 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 photos from Shap Abbey in Cumbria.  The first photo is of a sign on a gatepost I assume signifying that this is the way to the abbey, I find it quirky and odd, so probably not that odd that I took a photo.

And the second photo is just to give you a bit of context as to the location.

Skull canvas – One word Sunday Challenge – Skull

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 skull post.

So I read this while I was away at the weekend, and knew I just had to take a photo of this skull which hangs on my study wall when I got home.  The feathers are a bit tatty now perhaps I should replace them, but I did make this with the help of nature and a sheep skull over 20 years ago.
