This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ asks:
This week, the challenge is to go out and…
For this week I have chosen a photo of a tree that is in the process of Decay.
‘From the inside’, Puzzlewood, 2005.
And a second photo of the interior of Kenmure Castle, the roof gone and falling to Decay too quickly for a building of this beauty.
‘From the inside 2’, Kenmure Castle, 2018.
This week Teri has challenged us with:
“spring” is this week’s theme for Sunday Stills.
So what could be more spring like than the return of blossom to the trees and new leaf buds. Well I suppose I could have gone with lambs frolicking in the fields or new shoots thrusting from the earth. But in the end I chose to use this photo.
‘Spring blossom’, Stokesay castle, 2017.
And as an additional photo, because I I almost used something similar for a challenge a few weeks ago, and I did say it might make an appearance.
And other than it being some sort of clip, I have no idea what it is either!
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I would use this lovely tree.
‘Rest your weary bones’, Dyrham Park, 2014.
This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Meme-worthy Photos’, saying:
My Facebook feed is always filled with memes. Most use quotes from religious or government leaders. And even though I’ve been know to make a few memes myself, I’m usually more interested in the photo than the words. What made them choose that photo? Did they take the photo themselves or grab it off the internet? I like to use my own photos (saves a lot of heartburn over copyright infringement risks).
So plenty to choose from here in my catalog, but I chose to go with this.
“Unbroken’, Lochar water, Dumfries and Galoway, 2018.
So do I go with the inspirational quote, or a funny? How about –
I would be more than happy to hear your interpretations if you want to leave me a comment.
In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful. – Alice Walker
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I would use these two magnificent beasts taken at the Eden project.
‘Tall fronds’, Eden project, Cornwall, 2018.
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I wood use this photo of a tree from our local woodland.
‘Gnarly’, Brynna wood, 2015.
Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:
Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category. We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.
So what to choose for this week, having chosen a mirrored photo last week I thought I would do the same again. Once again the basic photo was not an oddball at all, but once it was mirrored on both vertical and horizontal axis, and a filter or two added, well . . .
‘Tree Goddess’, Ghyll Bank House, Lake district, 2018.
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I would choose a photo taken last year in Fernworthy forest on Dartmoor.
‘Looking up’, Fernworthy, Dartmoor, 2018.
For this Sunday’s tree I thought I would choose a photo taken on our snow walk on Friday. It is a tree I see often as it is in one of the fields that lie behind our house.
‘Snow Tree’, Brynna, S.Wales, 2019.
