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

Photograph the Places You’ll Go

You will have to visit Jenn’s site to get a full description of how we can photograph the Place you’ll go, but here is a photograph of St. Ives in Cornwall, I am fairly sure we will revisit this Distant harbour in the not too distant future!

Old Gate – Weekly Photo Challenge : Weathered

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

Photograph Something Weathered

I felt this old gate fit the brief, it has been in the back of mind to re-edit this photo for some time, and I rather like the way it turned out.

A single Tulip – Weekly Photo Challenge : Simplicity

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

This week our challenge is to photograph the simplicity of a scene which may mean making choices on what to leave out.

I love taking photos of flowers shooting slightly into the light and using a clear sky as a backdrop, though it is sometimes hard to isolate just one bloom.

And in Monochrome for perhaps an even simpler image, I cannot decide which I like best.

Transition – Weekly Photo Challenge : Falling Water

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

Photograph Falling Water

Ok, there is some falling water in this photo, but maybe not as much as there should be :), please forgive me, this photo is mainly the outcome of water that has fallen into another body of water, and the drop at the top is in transition between rising and falling, so I may just get away with bending the brief this week.

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.

Orange illuminated- Weekly Photo Challenge : Orange

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

It’s a color challenge this week. I don’t do these very often, but I seem to have brought back a whole lot of orange from India and it’s got me seeing the color everywhere. This week the challenge is to….
Photograph the Color Orange

Well as I entitled last weeks submission ‘Banana’ the idea of orange made me chuckle, should I continue with the fruit theme, however it was one of those rare occasions when we do not have an orange, satsuma, or clementine in the house.  So instead here are some lovely tulips for you.

Its in sphere – Weekly Photo Challenge – Round Things

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

So this week I’m going to send you off on a quest to photograph round things. I’m specifically thinking spheres, but I’ll leave the challenge open for other round things.

This week, the challenge is to go out and…

Photograph Round Things

Well I did not have to go far in my quest for a round thing.  This ‘thing’ sits in my desktop organiser and looks at me as I type up my posts, and edit photos.  It was inevitable that one day I would photograph it.  It is not quite a marble, nor is it a ball.  It is a sphere within a sphere!

The inner sphere has an eye printed on it, is weighted, and is suspended in liquid within a larger clear sphere.  And therefore when you roll it along a surface the eye always remains staring upwards, giving the effect that it is mysteriously floating along a surface rather than rolling.
