For those of you who are not friends on Facebook, or GPlus here are some photos taken on a day out near Hay-on-Wye May 2018.
This weeks challenge asks:
For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city?
So here is a pic taken at Arthur’s stone near Hay-on-Wye, showing my love of walking in the countryside, visiting ancient sites, photography, the resultant tinkering with the photo and just being with Karen.
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.
This weeks challenge asks us:
What would you rather be doing? If you’ve got more than one hobby, don’t be shy — you’re welcome to share the myriad ways in which you’d prefer to be spending time.
So the answer could be a couple of things, taking photos, playing music, playing boardgames, editing photos, thinking, dancing, or walking among stones at West Penwith in Cornwall.
So here another two another photos of the “Nine Maidens of Boskednan” [click for larger images]
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 earlier in the year to the Stonehenge.
So here is a link to the Photos:
This weeks challenge asks us:
use your camera to discover the endless variety that one thing can contain. It can be a single photo featuring some visual play on repetition and variation
I am currently working on some photos taken at Stonehenge in June last year, so thought I would use one of those for the basis for this challenge.
This week Cee asked:
“This week the topic is Candid Shots(human or animal). I want to see photographs unposed people, family, friends, pets, animals in the wild. I’m looking forward to what you all decide to post. ”
So here is an ‘almost’ Candid shot of Karen at Birkrigg stone circle in the Lake district, almost because I know she was aware I was taking shots around her.
This weeks challenge asks: “For this challenge, show us what waiting looks like to you. There are so many angles and interpretations — we look forward to seeing yours!”
When on holiday we like to visit ancient sites – In fact we are attempting to fit in 50 stone circles before Karen’s 50th Birthday. So when we are at a circle Karen likes to record the occasion, a few photos, some sketching, painting, and a little writing.
This leaves me with a little time ‘waiting’, I take photos, sit and think, and sometimes snooze. Karen has a series of photos entitled ‘Ken asleep at ancient sites’.
So here is a photo taken while i was ‘Waiting’ at Birkrigg stone circle earlier this year when we visited the Lake District.
This week the topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is M or N.
So here is a shot of stone whispering at Amroth beach Pembrokeshire – a tenuous link to the task given only by my naming of the shot!
