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 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.

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.
