Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Wonder’:
I have never used Wonder as a theme either! Whether you want to feature the Wonders of Nature, the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World or make us wonder what you may have photographed, there are plenty of directions for you to take this theme! And, of course, I expect all of your ideas to be wonderful!!
It will be of no surprise that I am probably going to use a photo of a stone circle for this challenge, full of mystery and wonder. How did they get there? What were they built for?
So which to choose? Well it had to be Stonehenge really for a challenge entitled wonder, it is not my favourite stone circle, but it would certainly be the first circle that entered many peoples minds. So off I went looking for a photo to use, and I found this one.
Previously unedited for the very reason that it works so well for this challenge, we have the ancient wonder of Stonehenge, and the modern wonder of water on tap. I like the juxtaposition here of monument and sprinkler hose, maybe it is to remind us that just as the monuments meaning faded away, so too perhaps could our natural resource of water if misused, leaving the hose and sprinkler a wonder for future generations.
