Geometrics

I don’t know if my title has a meaning that bears no relation to this post, of if is a word that my mind has given birth to. Nonetheless, it is my entry for Cee’s Black and White Challenge.

The first, and I think best, object that came to mind is my small, carved, wooden box that I keep my earrings in. I tried to make the most of the carved lines by messing around with the camera settings and filters. These, I think are the best four that I took with my trusty Samsung S6.

Magic

I was wondering what I could post for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge, then I remembered something in the archives.

A while back I bought myself a new camera. I spent ages playing around with it seeing what it could do. Waking up early one morning I spied the apples in the fruit bowl. At the time I had no curtains in the kitchen so the morning light was able to creep through the serving hatch and rest upon the apples. It looked to me just like an oil painted scene. I just had to try and capture it.

I then experimented with some of the other shots, using filters to bring some more magic to them. This, I think is the best one. It is reminiscent, I think, of old, hand coloured films.

It’s a Tiny, Tiny Word

This week’s Daily Press photo challenge is Tiny. I am one of the few people that I know who appreciates the smaller creatures of the planet, so I shall celebrate them here. Enjoy!… or not…

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge

Somewhere hidden along the Great Yarmouth seafront is a small, sunken oasis of calm called The Waterways. It is essentially a long pond used for model boat displayers and the local birdlife. It probably only takes 5 minutes to walk from end to end, but do you walk cross a bridge to walk down over the pond, or stick to the winding path along the edge? While pondering this question and this bridge, my eye was caught by the bright red sign on the other side. This is the resulting photograph presented as my entry for the Which Way challenge.

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge

This is one I took for the Things Made Out of Plastic challenge, but I forgot to post it 😦

This is the best smelling hand wash that I have ever experienced, and I will be inconsolable if I am not able to replace it once it has been used!

Sweet cat treat toy

The whole idea of the mouse is that it releases cat biscuits when it gets wobbled around by the cat. Needless to say it was never, ever the cat that wobbled it around!
