Imagined journey – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #53 – Your Choice

Yesterday was a special day for the Lens Artists Quartet, their 53rd post, the one year anniversary of their Challenge, and so we had a special challenge from TinaAnn-Christine, Patti, & Amy.

Your Choice

They chose Friendship , A Country That’s Special to You , Imagination , and Connected.  I like the fact that these posts all deal with the web that has grown between us all as a community across the globe, holding different views, and beliefs, but brought together every Saturday to share our pictorial thoughts.  Each week a little of our personality  is shared with the other members of our group, and we in turn learn a little more about our place in the world and how we relate to others.

Most of you are aware that I enjoy visiting ancient stones, often in remote locations, so once more I will share a photo of the ‘Druids circle’, Penmaenmawr.

I like to think I am taking some of you along with me for the walk, inspiring some to visit such places, or simply showing you something you otherwise would not have seen.  In my imagined world I publish a post and then members of our digital community that exists as ones and zeros to me on the whole, but who are indeed real people slowly make the trek to the stones with me.

Druids way – Which Way Challenge: April 25, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

Not quite a selfie – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Isolated objects

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Isolated objects’.

So I am going to cheat a bit here because I like the photo, it was taken in 2009 by my wife.  I enjoy the isolated feel you get walking in the countryside, and I also enjoy the way the object – myself, has been isolated in this shot.  I also enjoy how much younger I look 10 years ago if I am honest :).

Up to Swinside – Photo Challenge Walking.

This week SueW & GC  of Weekly Prompts say:

The Photo Challenge GC and I have chosen for you this weekend is ‘Walking‘ . . . What about you, are you the type to enjoy a brisk walk in the great outdoors, or are you a sedentary person whose idea of exercise is similar to my friend’s?

At the end of October we took a trip up to the Lake district, so here is a picture of walking to, and arrival at our destination on one of the days, Swinside Stone Circle (Sunkenkirk).
