Arriving – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Transport

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

Your challenge is to share some of your favorite modes of transport, some of which I hope will be a bit unusual (penny-farthing, anyone?) I look forward to seeing your thoughts on this one!

Afraid this is not that unusual! nor is it my favorite, as I usually suffer due to a morning/evening commute on sometimes overcrowded and delayed South Wales trains! But this train is probably carrying holiday makers looking forward to their weekend away.  I think I do actually have a photo of at least 1 penny-farthing, but will tantalisingly withhold it for now 🙂

St. Ives – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #78 – Special Spot Shots

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Now we are looking forward to seeing Your very special spot shots – maybe a room in your home, a garden, a mountain, a city, an exhibition, a lovely café…a place that is special to you!

Well it was always going to be a shot of somewhere in Wales or Cornwall, Cornwall wins by the merit that it is not home.  So a shot of St. Ives and my wife.  To be accurate anywhere with my wife is a ‘special place’ 🙂

Jump – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #72 – Waiting

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

This week, we invite you to explore waiting. Share with us photos and stories of your or other people’s waiting experience–waiting for holidays, vacation, travels, or a photographic moment.

Well I have been ‘waiting’ for the perfect challenge to use this photo, and finally I think it has come along.

Some young swimmers were doing back-flips off Smeatons pier in St. Ives, each waiting their turn, and waiting for the right moment.  In turn I was watching and waiting for the perfect moment to take the shot.

Coast from Coast – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Coast

This week Frank has challenged us with the topic:

So this week, your challenge is to find a Coast and share your impressions of it, or simply Coast along in your automobile and enjoy the countryside floating by.

I have mentioned several times that when we go to Cornwall we sometimes like to stay in a vegetarian B&B called Coast.  So here is a photo of the Coast in Cornwall, taken from the window of the Coast B&B, a 2 photo stitch.
