K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Today’s bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge should be child’s play, because I chose the theme of; Toys.

I thought it was only fitting that I got input from the person who the toys belonged to, so Audrey provided Instagram shots of some of the ones she found most photogenic, whereas I…well, I did some strange things with dolls’ heads.

You have been warned.

First, Audrey’s artistic interpretations, from small (and not so small) stuffed animals, to a Scooby Doo monster and some sort of hopping rabbit/chick hybrid.

And now my contribution. I started off with some dolls like these…

…then, as if dolls’ heads weren’t weird enough, I did this to them:

I hope that wasn’t too traumatic for you, check out something less unnerving from K’lee HERE.
But now it’s time for you to come out to play.

As an extra holiday bonus for you, here’s the excellent movie, The Magic Toyshop.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Monday is with us again and so is K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today brought to you by K’lee’s prompt; Foodie for a day.

K’lee wanted indoor food shots specifically and I’ve stuck to the brief almost perfectly.

I say almost perfectly, because the some of the food was cooked outside; Rhonda grilled some fantastic marinated pork belly strips on the barbeque yesterday evening…

…which were accompanied by another of her specialities, an oven baked foil parcel of sliced potato and onion with garlic and herbs…

…with green beans, baby corn and mushrooms, fried with bacon and parmesan.

Voilá.
Bon appetit.

Oh, and there were muffins for dessert.

For my own contribution to the challenge, I cooked up a work of art of a different sort; I used the corn we had for dinner, along with a tomato, a papaya and some broccoli…

 …I made this fruit and veg masterpiece.

You can see K’lee’s yummy post HERE.

Now it’s your turn to give us something to get our teeth into.

March of the Internet Nobody, day thirty one: Nature photography week…

For this, the final post in my month long frenzy of blogging activity, I took a slightly muddy stroll along a stretch of the Yeo river valley and captured what nature had to offer (in the grey springtime drizzle) in amongst the trees and undergrowth.

This area floods regularly in winter and spring, so it’s an altogether sparser landscape than our local woods, but the wood anemones are blooming, along with the ubiquitous wild garlic and a few other wild flowers. There is also an abundance of dramatically shaped trees here, bordering a more fast-flowing river which rushes over a concrete weir after snaking through the woods.

Thank you for joining me on my week of nature rambles and for putting up with me every day this month, normal(ish) service should resume tomorrow.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty nine: Nature photography week…

For my third day of nature photos, Audrey and I went for a walk in the woods behind our house and explored the wild garlic-carpeted riverbanks, spotting wood anemones, celandine and blossoming hawthorne amongst the coppiced ash and willow trees.

Audrey couldn’t resist striking a few dramatic poses for the camera, so see if you can spot her subtle pink jacket in any of these…

March of the Internet Nobody, day five: A blustery Sunday in the park…

It’s time for me to take the fifth. The fifth foray into my month long blogging adventure, that is.

Although by coincidence, I’m going to shut up and show you some pretty pictures today, which I took during a stroll round Barnstaple’s Rock park this morning. It’s somewhere I return to again and again to take photos, but I like the subtle changes the seasons bring to the scenery along the banks of the river Taw and I never fail to find a new perspective, whenever I visit.

Here are a few shots of my blustery walk, I hope you enjoy them.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

At first I thought K’lee’s choice of theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was a case of wishful thinking, when he picked; Signs of Spring’s Return.

But after a quick perusal of our small garden in yesterday’s grey winter light, I concluded that K’lee’s optimism was well founded as there are many new shoots and indications of returning life.

See for yourself…

K’lee has sprung into action and his gorgeous post is now HERE for your viewing pleasure.

Now it’s time for you to show us your green shoots of inspiration…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Hello there, fans of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and newcomers alike, I hope you enjoyed the last ordinary weekend of the year. Now it’s time for another burst of Monday morning creativity, courtesy of K’lee’s prompt; Show us your Winter’s light.

I took my entries for the challenge on the journey home from work yesterday morning, in the hills above the A361 link road, which cuts through the countryside from the M5 motorway, on its way to Barnstaple and the rest of North Devon.

It was very foggy when I drove to the edge of Exmoor at 6 a.m. but the worst of it had lifted by the the time I returned around midday, leaving some nicely artistic mist to add atmosphere to the pictures. See what you think…

You can see K’lee’s post HERE, but let’s see what you have to offer first; over to you…
