– Weekly Prompts: Family Albums

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

The midweek word/photo challenge on Susan and my site is Family Albums..

Last year I finished scanning an old family album, I then continued to scan some loose family photos, and I still have many more to get through, one day I may find out who some of the people are.  This is one from that set.

When it went white – Word/Photo Challenge: White

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

For January 2020, our colour challenge is White, and was chosen because Chinese New Year 2020 is the year of the White Metal Rat!

Well I went with the obvious, it snowed heavily here in 2018, enough to shut my place of work and give me 2 days off.  I quite like the snow, I am one of those people!  I stay warm, or venture out ‘carefully’ to have fun.

This is the road up to the ridgeway behind our house, the drifts got so deep we could not make it all the way to the top on the first day.

Horse, Pheasant and humans – Weekly Prompts: Visitors

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 Visitors.

Visitor – Someone or Something visiting Someplace Somewhere!

Wow this one is really quite wide open, I would say that at least 90% of my photos are taken when I am actively visiting somewhere for the purpose of ‘visiting’, as opposed to going about my day to day life.

So first a shot from the other 10%, a shot I thought I would never process, but which seemed appropriate here, 2 young visitors to the fields behind our house, on a mission to feed the horse.

And another visitor to the same fields, possibly seeking refuge, given the time of year this shot was taken.

And finally another shot from last weeks birthday walk up to the Brecon Beacons.

Tulip – Weekly Prompts: Flamboyant Red

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

December’s highlighted color challenge on Susan and my site is FLAMBOYANT RED.

Well there is not actually that much Red to choose from in my archives, mainly flowers like the one below.

When I was a young boy Red used to be my favourite colour, it is hard to say what it is now, but probably Blue, but it does sway either side on the colour wheel to Purple and Green.

Why and when did my colour tastes change I wonder?  I actually remember hating Blue, I would never pick the blue pieces in a game!  However just like my multicoloured clothes wearing wife, I would have to say my wardrobe looks like a rainbow, a muted rainbow, but all colours are represented.

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

This weekend the photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts from GC and me is Clock the Time.

Well not actually time at a standstill – or is it given this is a moment forever frozen in memory! but actually just a cloudy day.

Clear blue – Weekly Prompts: Crystal

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 Crystal.

So it is not cut glass crystal, nor is it an actual mineral crystal, I could have taken a photo of one of these, there are some in the house, but the cat is on my lap (see today’s previous post for why he is not being moved), but it is lovely, and made me think of the term ‘crystal clear’, even though actually it is not!

Monumental thoughts and photographs. – Weekly Prompts: Cover

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

 This weekend the Photo Challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Cover.

Imagine for a moment that you are writing a book and the publisher has asked for a Cover Picture. What will you choose?

Well I can think of a number of entrants for this one, but I think that the below is the most likely to ever become real.

Monumental thoughts and photographs.

I had fun doing this 🙂

Kitchen window – Weekly Prompts: Bottles

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

This weekend our Photo Challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Bottles.

Plastic, glass or wooden. Decorative or functional, the decision is yours. In the meantime we look forward to seeing your choices.

When not reusing our bottles for home wine making – currently there is some apple wine awaiting bottling, on the whole we recycle those we do not reuse, however an occasional a bottle ends up somewhere in the house, reused as an ornament!  This is the corner of the kitchen window, with big and small bottles.
