Break down the barriers! – One word Sunday Challenge: Communication.

This week Debbie  challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own communication post.

Well I have already used a picture from this series for this weeks Lens-Artists post – and the text I post below will be almost the same, however rather than roll them into one post, this week I thought I would rather keep them separate.

So. . .

Here is to hoping that the streams of our inspiration continue to bring our virtual community together in these troubled times, and to remind us of that which is common,  that which we share, and what we can continue to do for one another.  To keep open our lines of communication, and to bridge the differences, to see this not as that which separate us, but as the the flow that brings us a varied life, and through communication build community.

Below are a stream and road on Dartmoor, water and stone, the ancient arteries of communication, now we have electricity and radio waves, ones and zeros, at this moment more than ever let us remember to communicate.

Wild and tame – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #64 – Countryside and/or Small Towns

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Tina, Patti, Ann-Christine, and I [Amy] are looking forward to seeing your photos and reading stories of countryside and/or a small town.

I would say that at lest 50% of my photos could fit into this category as I live fairly rural, and my holidays usually take me to rural places, in search of ancient stones I tramp across wild open spaces, through forests, past lakes, up and down hill and mountain, and along public pathways.  Farmland and the ever patient farmers with the walkers on the land are a recurrent theme.  I live in Wales so I have access to some of the UK’s best countryside and small towns, even our big towns and cities are small :).

The countryside and our towns can be both wild and tame, so here are a few photos for you about what this means to me.

Into the wild – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: It’s All About Nature

For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:

It’s All About Nature.   This is a topic you can really have enjoy.   Let’s see how creative you can get.

So having just finished editing one set of holiday photos, I thought I would take a look through what was awaiting editing.  So here are a few photos from our visit to the Lake District at the end of October.
