This outbuilding of one of the usually unoccupied houses here in Tranquility Base has seen a lot of re-purposing over the years. The shuttered window obviously used to be a door and there are the phantom vestiges of two other windows.

This is week 8 of the Smartphone Challenge being hosted by Khürt at islandinthenet.com, and we are looking for Leading Lines – more specifically, how they can be used to show the concept of infinity.
In the nearby town of Confolens there is a little bridge over a small tributary of the Vienne river. The parapet on the right provides a leading line, while the bridge itself, as well as providing an interesting reflection (itself a nod to the concept of infinity) obscures the course of the river, adding an element of mystery to the image.
Or something like that.

It has been a very wet winter here and the ground is very muddy, which accounts for the almost three-dimensional set of tractor tracks in this image.

For the 200th iteration of his Tuesday Photo Challenge, Frank has chosen the theme of ‘Number’.

Our son and daughter-in-law’s pet mini Schnauser is not the most demonstrative of pets, but who wouldn’t love a cuddle with grandma?
