Altered way – Which Way Challenge: October 11th, 2019

Each Friday Sam challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

This week a photo with a story which can be read here – Gatehouse

Hole, stone, hand – A Photo a Week Challenge: Hands.

This week  Nancy has challenged us with the following:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES HANDS.

A few years ago my wife and myself took a number of photos of our hands and arms, protruding through the holes of the hold stones at Tregeseal.  We printed them fairly large in monochrome, and friends got them for Christmas.  This is one of the series that did not quite make it to the prints.

Burial stones – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

This week Frank challenges us with the topic:

After a week of fuzzy logic, images and beings, I thought it might be a good time to turn to something a bit more permanent. So, I cam to think of Stone as a theme

Well you could probably guess that it was going to be something like the below from me!

Evening stones – Which Way Challenge: September 20th, 2019

First of all a big thank you to San at ‘Alive and Trekking‘ who has taken over the hosting of this challenge from sonofabeach96 who has been at the helm for some time now.  Each Friday Sam will now challenge us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

For this first week with Sam at the helm I thought I would choose a photo from my archives, those of you who follow me know from recent posts I may have been perusing some old photos recently.  Well this one drew my attention,  I am going to go out on a limb and say it has 3 ways! A path to and through the stones for the modern visitor, the road way that runs along side, visible by its hedgerow, and maybe just a glimpse of the sacred ancient way!

Lined Up – Weekly Prompts: Line-up

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

The Saturday photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Line-up.

Lots of possibilities here – Line em up and shoot em… photographs that is!

Line-up – The cast of a theatrical show, a list of players in a sports event, a queue, a row. But You don’t need us to help you out, GC and I are certain you’ll have plenty of ideas of your own so we’ll leave you to it.

The first – two stones that are part of a stone row, a line, lined up, but also lines that go up.

The second – A slightly cheeky entrant of a line that is up!

And finally the third – the Up line from St. Ives to Carbis bay.

Unknown rider – Friday Fun: Statues

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

statues are built to commemorate, to decorate, for many reasons

please share your pics or stories about statues that resonate …
or take this opportunity to showcase your collection statue pics!

Whether through your lens or using creative writing … go where the prompt leads!

I spent a lot of time deciding which of my photos of sculptures where actually statues, but in the end I went with this photo, which is most definitely what I would call a statue!

For those of you who want to know the rider is not actually unknown this is the Statue of King Frederick V – Amalienborg Palace – but until I embarked on creating this post I had no idea.

Ignored beauty – Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Ignored

This Friday we are challenged with:

For this week’s Friendly Friday photo challenge, let’s hero something that has been ignored, overlooked, discarded.

This farm has steadily been falling into disrepair over the years that I have been visiting the Men-an-tol in Cornwall, to me it is a gem of a building, and it is sad to see it abandoned.
