K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

On Friday, somewhat rashly perhaps, I set the rather optimistic theme of Midsummer madness, due to summer solstice being last week.

I didn’t have anything in particular in mind and as I predicted, I ended up photographing some of the recent additions to our new garden, a couple of which got an artistic makeover.

K’lee’s excellent selection is HERE.

Now it’s time for your contributions…

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Time once again to delve into K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week with a theme chosen by K’lee; Faster than the Speed of Light.

The idea that came to me when I saw the prompt was based on the closing sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey and this is the image it inspired.

Check out K’lee’s post HERE.

Now let’s see what you brought to the photo party.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Happy Monday, one and all, and welcome to this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today inspired by my prompt from Friday, which was; Through, between, behind, beyond.

It was not something I’d thought about, so it was a last minute decision to use our new garden as a subject for the challenge.

We only really started work on our latest horticultural project last weekend, but now it’s coming along rather nicely, even if I do say so myself, (despite Rhonda doing most of the actual gardening) although possibly not advanced enough to warrant a full post to itself.

So what I’ve tried to do, in keeping with today’s theme, is to give you a few glimpses of the garden, from behind some plants, through the shed doorway, between the leaves, to catch hints of what lies beyond.

The link to K’lee’s post is HERE.

Now it’s time to show us what you captured this week.

The Woolhouse opens to the public…

You will have read a lot of stuff on here over the last few weeks, about my long obsession with David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and my more recent involvement with the happy, friendly and hilariously bonkers group, The Woolhouse Boys on Facebook.

Well it’s finally time for us to come out of the warm, woolly shadows and step, blinking, into the light of day, because The Woolhouse is now officially open to all. Well, all of you who already inhabit the world of Facebook, anyway.

That’s right, you can now join the formerly exclusive club of John Justice Wheeler knitwear enthusiasts and merry woolen pranksters, allowing you access to the entire woolly wonderland. 

Not only can you enter the main Woolhouse Boys group, but you can also take advantage of the Woolhouse Boys Secrets page, where you will find inside information on the show itself, educated theorizing on plot and character development and all manner of unseen and behind the scenes gems, gathered by our well-connected founding members, not to mention a lot of good company and an eclectic selection of amazing artistic talent.

But it doesn’t end there, because there is now a new addition to our fast-expanding corner of the wooled wide web, the Woolhouse Boys Contests page, where you will be able to take part in fun competitions, with a chance to win Twin Peaks related prizes and Woolhouse Boys goodies.

So come and join in the fun and see what you’ve been missing, use the links below to enter our world, there will be a warm and woolly welcome waiting for you and many yarns to be spun.

***THE WOOLHOUSE BOYS***

I’ll see you in the trees.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Aha! You didn’t think I’d make it in time, did you? But here I am, on a Friday, to give you your theme for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which is my choice this week and I’m going for; Through, between, behind, beyond.

Any way you’d like to interpret that is fine: take a photo through a window, between two thorns, behind the bike shed, beyond the hills and far away, it’s entirely up to you.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

One of these days I’ll get both the prompt and the challenge post published on time, but today isn’t that day.

Anyway, I’m finally here and ready for another edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week with the theme provided by K’lee; Stay on the Path.

I’ve gone for a straightforward approach, compiling a selection of tracks and pathways from some of our favourite walks.

You can see K’lee’s fabulous post HERE, so click that link and check it out.

Now let’s see what you have to show us.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Another late call for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, sorry.

It’s K’lee’s turn this week and he has chosen; Stay on the Path for his theme.

You know the drill, interpret the prompt any way you like and I’ll see you back here on Monday.
