K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today’s visual adventure on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to show us some interesting buildings and I found a few at the weekend so I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours.

First, the imposing facade of Heanton Court, the pub and restaurant Audrey and I rode to on Saturday, along the Tarka Trail cycle path, for a spot of lunch.

Next, on the way home we explored the wooded borders of the riverside trail and discovered an overgrown stone building…

…which on closer inspection, turned out to be an old lime kiln.

Returning to Barnstaple along the river, I snapped two more, distinctly different styles of architecture; this old Victorian building complete with intact dovecote on the roof…

…and the sleek art deco lines of this old cinema (now a nightclub) , gleaming white in the sunshine.

Onwards to the town square and the “Three faced liar”, officially the Albert Memorial clock tower, but known by its nickname to locals due to three of the four clock faces consistently showing the wrong time.

As a bonus, I captured the newly updated graffiti mural under the tall concrete bridge on the river; Audrey loved the fire-breathing tiger.

And last week, Rhonda, Audrey and I set off on an early morning drive to central London, to renew Audrey’s passport at the hugely impressive new American Embassy in Vauxhall, so of course I snapped a couple of shots there, too.

K’lee will build on the theme HERE later, but now you can show us yours.

It’s K’lee’s turn to provide the inspiration for this week’s foray into photographic fabulousness, on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, so why not see what you can do with this enigmatic gem; AN ANIME-TED LIFE!

See you back here as usual to start the week with a snap, so to speak.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I have to admit that I rather stumped myself with the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, leaving me to pick a selection of mouth-watering delicacies to illustrate the prompt; Eat, drink and be merry.

Rhonda is a fabulous cook, particularly on the barbeque grill, while Audrey and I are both enthusiastic consumers; so I have many shots of food, along with quite a few of us devouring it.

From a rolled pork loin cooked on the grill, stuffed with mushrooms, onions, garden herbs and garlic…

…to one of my very favourite examples of Rhonda’s traditional American cooking; biscuits and gravy…

…or how about one of mine and Audrey’s fully loaded pizzas, but you’ll have to be quick, they don’t last long.

Possibly the best single meal I’ve had in the last few months was the first time Rhonda made Philly cheese steak sandwiches, with homemade coleslaw and potato wedges. My stomach thought it had died and gone to culinary heaven.

And for dessert? How about a Twin Peaks themed cherry pie and a damn fine cup of black coffee.

I even found a picture of Audrey with her face painted to make it appear as though a fish was eating a hotdog.

And how could I leave out a shot of me “being merry” in my misspent youth.

Cheers!

K’lee’s scrumptious post is now ready to be served HERE.

But now it’s time to feast our eyes on your offerings for the week.

This week’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is prompted by my optimistic hope that the weather will cooperate enough, to make the BBQ we are attending today a pleasant experience.

It is the season for outdoor culinary endeavours, after all, so your inspiration for imagery today is; Eat, drink and be merry.

Interpret that however you like and I’ll see you here on Monday with some delicious eye candy to feast on.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s adventure in imagery on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was inspired by K’lee’s prompt of these three emotive words; Seraphic, diaphanous and immutable.

I couldn’t think of anything to go with seraphic, but clouds and fennel plants are both diaphanous and death is pretty immutable, so I’m going with those two.

I’m sure K’lee will have all three covered HERE.

But now it’s your turn.

NOTE: PINGBACKS MAY NOT BE WORKING, SO PLEASE LEAVE A LINK TO YOUR POST IN THE COMMENTS. THANK YOU.

K’lee is at the helm for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, providing us with what I think is our most challenging theme yet. He has given us three words to inspire us and they are emotive, indeed;

SERAPHIC

DIAPHANOUS

IMMUTABLE

So make what you will of that and prepare to show us how you interpret them on Monday.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

A fashionably late bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge today, using the theme I chose at the weekend; Plastic fantastic.

I picked that at random, thinking the ubiquitous hydrocarbon came in such a variety of forms and colours that I couldn’t fail to find a suitable subject. And it was the wording of the prompt itself which gave me my own inspiration, when I re-read it and saw “polymer”.

Well, it just so happens that Audrey has become particularly creative with sculpture recently, using a brightly coloured and malleable, oven-baked polymer modelling clay.

A couple of weeks ago, she and I made a display shelf for her creations, which we decorated with some sparkly plastic sticky tape, I used some of that for a makeshift studio and did a plastic fantastic photo shoot.

There is a Loch Ness monster, rising from the deep, towering over a rowing boat on an island…

….a cup and saucer, complete with a snack of jellybeans and an iced donut with sprinkles…

…a chicken, a pig, some cheerful-looking fruit and a very grumpy jellyfish…

…a glittery caterpillar…

…a couple of aliens and a unicorn horn…

…and a rogues gallery of canine heads.

See what K’lee has synthesized for us HERE.

Now you can wow us with your visual flair, it’s easy to do, just follow the blurb below.

For this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I thought I’d go for an alliterative theme with which you can experiment; Plastic fantastic.

Plenty of scope there, so get positively playful with pictures of polymers or take some snazzy snaps of synthetic substances and oil see you back here for Monday’s big reveal.
