Hello human – Weekly Photo Challenge : Unexpected Beauty

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

This week the challenge is to….
Photograph Unexpected Beauty
It doesn’t matter what sort of beauty. Any beauty will do!
The best is when I find beauty when I’m not expecting it. Finding a ray of sun on a weed or a splash of color in a dingy building.

When we visited Lynmouth and Lynton in March this year, I finished my meal in the small cafe at the top of the railway before anyone else.  I decided to nip out and take a few shots from the top looking across the waters to Wales.  As I walked up the path I encountered this ‘Unexpected Beauty’, (s)he saw me coming and ran toward me, leaping up onto what must be a favourite fussing spot when encountering passing travellers, purrs, strokes, rubs and tickles were the order of the day.

In, behind, illuminated – A Photo a Week Challenge – Unexpected Windows

This weeks challenge from Nancy is:

Have you ever walked pass an opening in a wall or barrier and suddenly an amazing view opened up? I love unexpected windows. It’s like viewing a whole different world, even if it’s your own backyard through your backdoor.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) USING AN UNUSUAL WINDOW.

So the first is unusual only because I was not expecting to take it.

The second, a baby seagull sheltering against the window, an unexpected view through the glass.

And finally, hopefully you will let me get away with this one, a photo of the light falling on my wife from the circular opening in the ceiling of the underground elliptical domed chamber ‘Tewlwolow Kernow’ by James Turrell Ra.
