It’s ‘Traces of the past’, for Paula’s Black and White Sunday. This week she says that we don’t have to have buildings or architecture inn our photos, the past can have many forms. So I found some ghosts, and yes I’m more than a little crazy!
Pop over to Paula’s to see her wonderful photo of Bamburgh Castle.
Last Saturday afternoon, I was sitting quietly at home when I heard a distinctive two syllable bird song. I slowly stood up and staying well back from the window I watched as a pair of little birds flew back and forth to the feeder on the olive tree. I knew they’d be off if I made any sudden movements, but when they were out of sight I went to get my camera. They must have seen me spying on them because they stayed further away on John Downie’s budding branches, still coming and going.
I watched for half an hour desperately trying to get a decent photo, several feet inside of the window with unsettled light.
They are of course, Great Tits.
Now, Paula’s Thursday challenge this week is zoom in zoom out. So here’s a closer view of these cute, but also quite stroppy little birds.
Paula zoomed in on a beautiful waterfall in Croatia, ‘stopping’the flow to create a white curtain of water.
How do you picture awakening?
stretching wide with the dawning
wings spread to heaven
Awakening, this weeks photo challenge.
you almost always feel better and people around often smile back. Or they think you’re crazy, that’s okay too!
Go on, you know you want to!
Join this weeks photo challenge and see who else is smiling.
When Becky began her March Square challenge I wasn’t sure I’d manage to post every day, so I started a folder on my desktop and saved quite a few photos there. These are some of the leftovers, all taken in Turkey.If you click an image you can see a bigger view.
And my very last photo, one I know that my antipodean friend will love.
Beck, a great big thank you hug, so many people have enjoyed this challenge!
One of the most memorable sunsets I’ve ever seen was this one in Kota Kinabalu.
Just a few minutes later and this is how it looked.
Looking towards the islands where for the first time in my life I tried snorkelling, it felt like I was in paradise.
This weeks photo challenge from WordPress is Rise/Set. Although I’m a morning person, being up and being out are very different so I rarely take sunrise photos!
Despite the fact that I returned from a dog walk cold to my bones, there is evidence a plenty that it’s spring. I found this pretty square in King George V park this morning and it cheered me up.
My penultimate offering for Becky’s March challenge.
I think a few of us are going to miss Becky’s challenge when it ends, it’s certainly given me a focus through a mad month, thanks Becky!
I needed a ferry ride to take today’s photo, from one country to another and the towns at both sides are lovely. It was one of the best couple of pounds I’ve spent.
A few circles and lots of squares in my square photo.
Today’s photo is from Turkey again, found at a caravanserai. on the road between Konya and Aksaray. When I first heard the word caravanserai, it was the name of an album by Santana and I had no idea what it meant!
Just three days of Becky’s square challenge left after today, I’m looking at the world through square eyes so I think I’ll use the format a lot in future.
