Bridge seat – Pull up a Seat photo challenge 2019: Week 41

Each week at XingfuMama we are asked to ‘Pull up a seat‘.

This is one of the odder seats we have found – and it is just the other side of the tree and seat I used last week!

Here lie Vikings – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Back Catalog

This week Frank challenges us with the topic:

As often happens, when I start going through the archives, I find something that I just might want to treat in a different manner… That led me to the theme for this week: Back Catalog.

The image below, reworked for this post always catches my attention, taken with the old Dimage Z3, taken on the first day of our honeymoon , this picture always grabs my attention. Not from any great sense of compositional skill, but the subject matter.  These are recreated Viking grave markers in a church that if I remember rightly was somewhere near Greystoke.  I remember suddenly being overtaken by the sense that my wife and I were embarking on a new journey, but all around were the signs that our ancestors were watching over us, I was overcome with a feeling of contentment, not the usual feeling I get when I visit a graveyard!

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.
