Tables and Basses – Weekly Prompts – Best Buy

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Best Buy’ as the theme for their challenge.

We all have something at home that we regard as our ‘Best Buy’, so what’s yours, what is your best purchase? Perhaps you have more than one, or maybe the best buy turned out to be your best gift. Whatever they may be, we are looking forward to viewing your photographs and reading all about them.

So what to choose?

This was actually very easy as last week we bought a new table, it was just the style that we had been looking for, and an absolute bargain to boot!  Oh and the cats seem to approve, so that has to be a good thing.

And I thought I also better post a shot of one of my upright basses, as she has been one of my best buys of the previous decade, bringing joy to both me, and hopefully others.

And just to round things of a photo I used last week, my camera, although only sporting the kit lens here rather than the usual 18-200mm.  Unlike both of my upright basses (the other one is called Audrey), I have never named my cameras, do any of you do that? I would be intrigued to find out if you do.

Reflective skull – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shiny

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

Well there were a lot of photos that I could have used for this challenge, however I had already used most for other challenges, and I always like to use something new if possible, although I do sometimes forget what I have used before.

Anyway a previously unedited photo, taken for no apparent reason and therefore unedited, and it is metal and shiny!

So what previous challenge entrants would I have used?  Two come from something I  posted only yesterday, both my bass Tallulah and our new table are shiny, other thoughts were a toy Caterpillar, a shiny red tulip and a rose hip.



First Picnic – Pull up a Seat photo challenge 2019 – Week 8

Each week at XingfuMama we are asked to ‘Pull up a seat’.

So here is a another shot pulled up from the archives.  This is the first picnic bench I ever photographed with a digital camera, a little 2MP Minolta Dimage Z3.  Little did I know I would take quite a few more over the years, but I will reveal more on that in later posts probably.
