K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to another bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with this week’s inspiration provided by K’lee’s prompt; For the love of…

I suppose I could have picked many things which go with that theme, but since Audrey and I have been spending a lot of time on our bikes recently, touring the countryside around Barnstaple, I thought I’d go with For the love of Devon.

It’s such a beautiful part of the country, here in the balmy Southwest, warmed by the Gulf Stream and criss-crossed with cycle routes like the Tarka Trail. Here are just a few of the shots taken on our journeys over the last couple of weeks.

You can see what K’lee is loved up about HERE and it’s a real treat.

Now you can show us some of your affectionate imagery.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I have a confession to make.

I set the prompt for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because I had a specific event in mind when I picked; Street photography.

Saturday was Green Man day in Barnstaple.

Or rather, it was the Pilton Green Man Festival. Set in the old town’s sloping high street and around the Rotary Gardens, the all day event comprises craft stalls, live music, Morris dancing, fairground attractions, food and drink, a pagan procession and much more. It’s always a busy day and this year’s festival was no exception.

Audrey and I wandered through the crowds, soaked up some of the cheerful community atmosphere and I took some photos; including some of the slightly fearsome Morris men and women (see if you can make out exactly who is who in the final shot, I certainly can’t).

K’lee is out on the streets HERE, but now it’s time to show us what you found on your travels.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was set by me and gave plenty of scope for photographic subjects; Downtown.

I chose to snap some pictures of an old section of Barnstaple, the narrow cobbled lanes around a church in the centre of town.

Here, also, are the alms houses and a tea room which used to be a school for the poor. (I’ve included a better view of the sign above each door)

K’lee gives us the tour HERE, so go and have a look round his stunning city.

But now it’s time to give us a tour of your hometown…

A week in the park.

As promised, the rest of our week’s walks along the riverbank, in photos.

Photo Sans Frontiers

Audrey was on half term last week, so while I was off work we went for a walk each day, in Barnstaple’s Rock Park and along the banks of the river Taw.

It got Audrey off YouTube for an hour or so, she got an ice cream out of it and I got some nice photos into the bargain.
