This week The ‘Friendly Friday Photo Challenge‘ asks us:
I’d love to see (and hear) your tips for staying creative. What do you do when you lose your mojo, how do you get it back? What inspires you to blog, make photos, write stories, paint? Tell your story with a photo.
Those of you who follow my blog will know there are a lot of photos of Cornwall. It is not simply that we like holidaying in Cornwall, it is an inspirational place, and our batteries recharge while we are there.
For WordPress Challenges where possible I always like to use photos from the current set I am working on – the inner challenge – not always possible, but in this case I do happen to be editing a set of pictures from our trip to Cornwall in September. So here are a couple for you.
A 3 photo stitch of the Lizard.
A shot of the magical Men-an-tol.
And a 4 photo stitch of Porthgwidden beach at dusk in St. Ives.
In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us to:
SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURE STREET LIGHTS.
So here are two pictures taken in St. Ives the feature street lighting.
For those of you who are not friends on Facebook, or GPlus here are the photos that I have been working on over the last week or so, taken on our trip last year to Cornwall. Or for those that are and just want to see them again, a link to all 285 photos in one bite sized place.
Cornwall September 2017 [285 photos]
This weeks challenge asks us:
This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017.
So here are three photos taken from a set taken while in Cornwall in September this year. I’ve used photos from this set before for the Weekly Challenges, but not yet got around to editing the entire set. There was some lovey light to be found on this trip and the results are fast becoming some of my favorites from 2017. Wishing you all a splendid new year.

This weeks Challenge asks us to post a photo of a place with ambience.
So here are two photos taken during last years visit to Cornwall (which is the series of photos I am currently working on). The first exploring ambience created by light, the second exploring, and I am going to be unashamedly hippy about this – the vibe of the place.

Here is my entry for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge with the challenge of Cherry on top.
This is a photo taken last October, in a rather nice tea shop, in St Ives, cake was eaten!
The challenge set this week is to post a picture of your Happy place – “Where do you go when you need to think? What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? How do you get your sense of humor back? How do you recharge your groove?”
Those of you who know me, or just follow me here may guess what my picture will be of this week – Cornwall, Wales, Ancient sites, the Sea, the Forests, the Mountains, Dancing, Music, Spirituality, Love, Karen. Any one of those help me through the daily grind and inspire the creativity within.
So what will I choose from these words?
This is taken at St Ives, Cornwall, looking out to the sea, at the liminal space between day and night, the land and sea, the ancient and the more recent.
You can see other entrants to this challenge here.
Well I have been rather busy of late, and thus I’ve had little time to blog. So for a first image of 2015 one of my favorite places on this planet – St. Ives. It just so happens it’s of a little back road at night, and so eligible for Cee’s Black & White Challenge “Roadscapes” this week.
Today was spent at Tate St. Ives looking at photos by Kiyohiko Komura, Geraldo de Barros, Claude Cahun, Laszlo Moholy-Navy, and Harry Callahan.
Running until 10th of May 2015, and well worth a look.
