Frosty – Sunday Stills: December #Chill is in the Air

This week Teri  challenged us with:

I am looking forward to your chilly images.

Well we went out for a walk on my birthday this Sunday – I shared a chilly image here – Birthday walk, but here is another suitable snap.

Soft Seas – Sunday Stills: #Favorite Photo

This week Teri  challenged us with:

With the holidays upon us, I thought I would make it easy for all of us at Sunday Stills this week to share a few of our favorite photos or some oldie-but-goodies. If you have a new favorite to share, well, go right ahead!

Well I would find it hard to choose a favourite photo, and especially one that has not yet been used for a challenge, so I thought I would choose a favourite from one of my most recent excursions that remains as yet unedited.  It is in fact a favourite place 🙂

Heebie-jeebies – Sunday Stills: #Something scary

This week Teri  challenged us with:

This week’s theme is all about “something scary” since Halloween is right around the corner. Aside from the requisite ghouls, ghosts, witches and other scary things we associate with the season, I admit that there are scarier things!

I am in awe of people who traipse around looking for, entering, and taking photographs of ‘abandoned’ buildings.  I find their photos intriguing, and a little sinister. I visit many ancient sites, old stones, castles, national trust houses, but abandoned buildings just give me the heebie-jeebies!  However during last years visit to Dumfries and Galloway, we did visit one such dark and brooding place, and I have to say I was on edge all the time, I felt I was not particularly wanted, resented as part of the problem that would let such a magnificent place fall into such disrepair.  The ghosts of the place seemed to weigh heavy on me as I took my photos, and at the end I would have to say I was happy to leave!  Though also happy to have visited.

This week Teri  challenged us with:

I look forward to you all filling up the pages of WordPress with your pink images!

And given Teri’s post is to raise awareness, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – perhaps I can get away with a cheeky edit of the above – I hope people see the fun in it.

Please whatever your gender, remember to check yourself, and if you find anything, please do seek medical advice, if it turns out to be nothing, they will be happy also, you waste no ones time by talking, and getting examined.

Door cubed – #SundayStills: All #Lined Up

This week Teri  challenged us with:

October kicks off another month of Sunday Stills photo challenges, but did you know that Becky B, square photographer extraordinaire, is back to hosting her squares challenge this month? October’s theme is “lines and squares.”

Why not join in for Sunday Stills this week and post some lines and squares for both challenges! Think of it as photo blogging squared!

So given this entrant is for both Sunday stills and Becky’s lines and squares, and given I have used this photo before but un-cropped for another challenge – Bound, I thought I would take it to the third dimention and give you…

I can almost smell it – #SundayStills: #Close-up

This week Teri  challenged us with:

Calling all photographers and creatives who really like a challenge this week! Last July 2018, I challenged Sunday Stillers to a macro-photography challenge. I thought it was time to offer another macro or close-up photography challenge this week.

Not quite as close as I sometimes get, but I just liked this the way it was.

Ancient triangle – #SundayStills: #Triangles

This week Teri has challenged us with:

“Triangles” is our theme this week for the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge.

I am going to claim that the Capstone of Bodowyr Burial Chamber is a triangle, or at least it looks like one, hope I get away with it :).
