Giant woman, little people – Weekly Prompts: Big and Small

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

This weekend GC and I give you BIG and SMALL as your Weekly Prompts Challenge.

Our initial thinking on this one was to challenge you to find pairs, opposites sizes etc. You, of course, may have other ideas, and that’s just fine with us.

Whichever way you choose to interpret our challenge, remember it’s flexible, and anything goes. Photos, Fiction, Poetry- it’s your choice, so have fun!

Well I did initially find a few photos of Big and Small with matching pairs, sheep and lambs, adults and children, cakes!

However I settled on this photo, probably the only time a husband gets to refer to his wife as ‘big’, or ‘Giant’, without being in trouble!

Sinking – Weekly Prompts: Rectangular Prism & Bronze

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

For the month of October I have chosen to highlight the color challenge BRONZE  for Susan and my site.

Many colors can be described as simple and the mere mention of it evokes certain types of personal memories towards it. Red, orange , green and yellow are such warm and welcoming colors to be sure.

I was away last week for the challenge, of  Rectangular Prism, but this sort of fits that also!

The actual material is Copper and Brass, but it has a bronzed colour so I feel I can get away with it as that is what the challenge was about :).

Friends – Weekly Prompts: Grin

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

This weekend the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge from GC and me is GRIN.

Animals, babies, unfortunate gaffs and even partners are just a few of the things that make GC and me grin. So, what gets your giggle juices flowing? Whatever it is we’d love to hear about them and see your photos.

As usual this is a flexible challenge and anything goes, so grin and bear it and have fun!

Well first of all thanks to my wife for this photo from the archives, it makes me smile, yes it is blurry, but you can see the warmth, happiness, friendship, and grins!

Two old friends meet up in a foreign land after a good number of years of not seeing each other, the meeting a fairly random chance encounter that they happen to be in Vienna on the same day!  If you don’t know, I am the one on the right.

Lined Up – Weekly Prompts: Line-up

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

The Saturday photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Line-up.

Lots of possibilities here – Line em up and shoot em… photographs that is!

Line-up – The cast of a theatrical show, a list of players in a sports event, a queue, a row. But You don’t need us to help you out, GC and I are certain you’ll have plenty of ideas of your own so we’ll leave you to it.

The first – two stones that are part of a stone row, a line, lined up, but also lines that go up.

The second – A slightly cheeky entrant of a line that is up!

And finally the third – the Up line from St. Ives to Carbis bay.

Magenta Roses – Weekly Prompts: Magenta Rose

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge that launches on the first Saturday of each month, and continues thoughout the month. The colour for September is Magenta Rose.

I don’t know about you, but I never realised there were so many different names for pink, and I’m not even sure how many photos I can find for the shade of Magenta Rose, but that’s the challenge, and the hunt is part of the fun!

Bit of a cheat as they did start of as very dark burgundy roses, but I did want to use roses, and fuchsias were well fuchsia, pinks where pink… Not quite the shade of ‘Magenta rose’, but certainly now Magenta roses!

Vanessa Atalanta – Weekly Prompts: Close

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

Close-up, close to, close shave, close off, close the door! Contrasting definitions of the one spelling.

This is one of those words in the English language that varies in definition by the way it is pronounced. Close ( clothes) the door cannot be confused with a close (klos) shave.

Well so much for your linguistic lesson for this week. 😀

Which one will you choose? We can’t wait to find out!

Interpret this challenge in any way you choose; photographs, a piece of writing, or rhyme. Whatever your choice, have fun with it!

So a ‘close-up’ of a Red Admiral about to ‘close’ its wings, well it may have been opening them but I claim artistic licence.  I might have cropped it a bit ‘close-r’ but I did not realise how scary their faces were!

Lucy 1888 – Weekly Prompts: Sepia

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge and the colour for August is  SEPIA.

The perfect chance to use a photo from the old family albums I have been scanning and repairing – This time left in all its Sepia glory and mostly unedited.

There is definitely something that the photographer has captured here, she looks inquisitive to me, I wish I knew who she grew up to be – more research needed :).

Huge and lovely – Weekly Prompts: Bloom

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

Our weekend photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is BLOOM.
Flowers bloom, ladies-in-waiting bloom, youngsters bloom when the delicate transition from childhood is achieved. We adults, begin to bloom when our hopes and dreams are accomplished, or when sought-after independence is finally attained.
How will you bloom, how will you choose to address our challenge?

Two pictures from our recent jaunt up to Yorkshire.

The first showing the blooming magnificence and scale of megalithic structures surrounded by this years corn in bloom!

Way in? – Weekly Prompts: Deception

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

The weekend photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Deception, or put another way… do your eyes deceive you?

So an ancient Deception for you – this is the front of the Bryn Celli Ddu burial mound, or is it?  This is actually a fake maybe ritualistic entrance, while the real way in is around the back!

Devil’s Arrows – Weekly Prompts: Satisfaction

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

This week’s photo challenge centers itself on the word SATISFACTION.

Last week I felt a great deal of satisfaction as we were on holiday, busy days visiting ancient sites, stately homes, places of interest & castles. And what magnificent ancient sites we got to see this time on Anglesey, and then in Yorkshire.  The corn really was this colour! And a lucky choice of clothing colour for my wife :).
