K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today is the day that K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge shows how grateful it is to K’lee, for providing us with this week’s prompt; Gratitude.

It happens that today is the third anniversary of Rhonda and Audrey arriving in the country to begin our lives together, so I thought I’d compile some of my favourite portraits of them, to show how grateful I am to have them here.

K’lee will be HERE with his post, later.

Now it’s time to show us what you’re grateful for.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

A new week brings a new batch of pictures in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week with a prompt chosen by me; Man made meets Mother Nature.

I went looking for inspiration along the river, picking the imposing industrial forms of the electricity pylons as a theme and finding a few other examples of manufactured objects living, with greater or lesser success, in the wild:

Then I was struck by the artistic possibilities of the pylons’ geometric designs and made these two rather pretty composite images to round off today’s post.

You can see what treasures K’lee found for us, HERE, and they’re gorgeous

Now it’s your chance to flaunt it, so show us watcha got…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time to get spooky with this week’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, as K’lee chose; Things that go bump in the night as your Friday prompt.

I thought I’d go traditional, after accompanying Audrey and her friends on a Trick or Treat tour of the neighbourhood…

…by making a movie poster from the scary Jack o’ lantern Rhonda carved for our doorstep.

K’lee has scared up some photos for us HERE, go and check then out, they’re awesome.

Now it’s your turn…

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.

I hope you had a pleasant weekend and the weather allowed you to get out and about, specifically I hope you were able to take A walk in the park, since that was the theme on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week.

I did have an ulterior motive, I admit; my physiotherapist has told me I need to take a walk at least once a day, (yes, amazingly, I’m still off work with nerve damage, sustained from dodgem-related whiplash) and this week coincides with Audrey’s half term holiday, so we took a walk round the park and along the banks of the river Taw every day this week.

I did of course take more photos than the few I’m posting today, making this a teaser for a Photo Sans Frontiers post I will link to on here tomorrow.

K’lee will take us for a walk HERE later.

Now, what did you see, down in the park?

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by K’lee’s prompt; Unexpected beauty and complete luck.

I was still trying to come up with an idea to meet K’lee’s brief, when I happened to notice something in the corner of another photo…

…see what I mean?

No? How about now?

It’s Audrey, encased in a glowing golden ball of light, courtesy of a ceiling light reflected in the glass of the picture frame.

Synchronicity should not be ignored, so this is my offering for this week’s challenge.

I rest my case.

You’ll see what K’lee has up his sleeve HERE.

Now, what do you have to offer us?

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Seasonal seasonings.

I’m cheating slightly for this week’s SoCS post, because I was never going to get round to writing anything today but I had a flash of inspiration after seeing Linda G Hill‘s prompt;

” “season.” Use the word “season,” add a suffix to it, or write about one. Bonus points if the first and last word of your post is a season or a seasoning. Extra bonus points if you have pictures.”

Seasons, huh?

That leaves all sorts of possibilities open to me, including making something seasonal (autumn leaves, as it happens) out of smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and turmeric, i.e. seasonings…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Good morning, I hope you haven’t been blown away overnight, because it’s time for your weekly prompt, providing inspiration for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week, themed by K’lee.

My photographic partner in crime has picked another of his enigmatic suggestions, allowing plenty of room for interpretation; Unexpected beauty.

So get out and look for beauty in unexpected places, so you can wow us on Monday with surprising loveliness.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s time for another interactive episode of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, for which I chose this week’s theme; Looking down.

I didn’t have anything specific in mind when I set the prompt on Friday, so yesterday I took a stroll round the park to seek inspiration.

I found myself looking down from the iron bridge that crosses the river; just in time to catch a canoeist paddling by.

Then, walking back, I looked down through the trees from a raised path at the end of the park, which used to form part of the old railway embankment. There I found steps, descending tunnels of trees and views of the woods down the steep sided bank, dappled in Autumn sunshine.

K’lee’s beautiful photos are HERE, but where are yours, let’s have a look..?
