Old in new – #ThursdayDoors: May 23, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  I particularly liked the fact this old wooden door was set in a brightly painted frame with a neon lit sign above.

Interior exposed – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #45 – Street Art

This week Patti challenges us with:

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #44 is your chance to highlight Street Art in any form, such as posters, graffiti, prints, stencils, sculptures, or installations. We’re looking forward to seeing the art you found on streets of the towns and cities close to home or all over the world.

I have mentioned in a previous post that my collection of graffiti is somewhat limited, something which I really should remedy.  So here is a sculpture, or rather four that make up the whole thing, I could not help taking several pictures of it when we encountered it while visiting Copenhagen at Amaliehaven.  The Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro created various sculptures for the park, including these four large abstract columns.

From one end to the other – Friendly Friday: Alleys

This Friday, Something to Ponder About and The Snow Melts Somewhere have challenged us with:

The prompt for this Friday is:

From one end to the other – not just the length of the Alley but a reference to the fact that the photos are taken at opposite ends of the UK.

The first a photo taken in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, to explain my title the streets here were used in the original Wickerman film.

My second alley is in St. Ives, Cornwall, how we love the narrow streets and alleys here.  Not really an alley, more of a narrow street, but I love this place.

Somewhere in France – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Roads: country, freeways, streets

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Roads’.

The following shot was taken when we were returning from a festival in France where my band had been playing.  It is actually a street in Amiens, I am not sure what made me go looking for this photo for this challenge, I just happened to like it I guess.
