Weekly Photo Challenge: ZigZag

My mother was of the opinion that you can’t get patterned carpet any more.  I took this photo to show her she was wrong but it didn’t turn out as I expected…   A definite Zigzag on perspective – wouldn’t you say? For more takes on this challenge click here

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

Wasn’t sure I would be able to do this one until today, when a visit to Two Tree Island brought me into contact with this. This is a lovely container, don’t you think?   For other takes on the challenge, click here

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

The Tour de France came to Essex on the 7th July 2014. It brought with it: spectacle, elite athletes; speed; precision machinery,  and – for some of us –  a day off work. Within 24 hours it was gone – nothing but memories and a sense of I was there. Or so I thought  until […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

This week the challenge is to capture contrasts. As always, it was taken in my parents garden during half term. I love the way the blue flowers contrast with the green of the grass; how the smoothness of the grass contrasts with the hairy stems of the plant and how the sunshine contrasts with water […]

For those of you not from Southend the Taylor Centre was a multi- agency NHS centre, with a vile smelling multi-storey car park underneath. But as […]

Weekend Photo Challenge: Extra

This is a weed growing in my parent’s garden.  Not only is it beautiful, but if you look carefully, it has captured the morning dew. If you look even more closely you will see some black triangles on the stem of this beauty. For further takes on this challenge click here

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

I’m glad I’m at the parents for this one. Just a quick trip into the garden and I found just what I was looking for. This is the lilac tree in the old garden. As you can see, it has been twisted by the wind and weather. For other takes on this challenge: click here

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

This was taken in Bethnel Green Cemetery, the day we went to look for my Great Grandfather. We didn’t find him; he was buried in a pauper’s grave, and it has gone. We did find these two. Now, I don’t know about you… but  not only does it remind me of the original ending of […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Move

This is one of my most favourite places in the world. I have posted from here before. It’s in the Village of LLanistumdwy – boyhood home and final resting place of Prime Minister David Lloyd George. This is the stream that runs through the village – the River Dwyfor – caught  as it moves inexorably […]
