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!

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!

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.

This weeks challenge from Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ asks:

I was just photographing at a festival (Cinco de Mayo since you ask) and I have lots of ideas for future challenges that involve people, but since we just did a people challenge, let’s go for something else that caught my attention during the parade.
This week the challenge is to….
