Hydrangea – A closer View

It’s macro week in Cee’s midweek challenge, so let’s take a closer look at the hydrangea from my previous post.

Hydrangea

The theme for the Fun Foto Challenge this week is something that reminds us of nature’s beauty.

I seem to recall from my distant days as a Philosophy undergraduate that there is quite some debate as to whether ‘beauty’ exists anywhere other than the eye of the beholder. However, it’s hard to argue against the view that this hydrangea – a recent addition to our garden- fits the bill on this occasion.

July’s Last Photo

This is part of the ‘deli’ section of our local village shop – the Superette’.

If you’re wondering what museau de porc is, let me enlighten you: it’s pig’s snout.

I am not making this up. Or eating it.

Can’t Go Wrong With Raindrops

Captured on the wet morning of a recent coach trip, you just can’t go wrong with raindrops on flowers, can you?

Raising a smile

For her Fun Foto Challenge this week, Cee is looking for an image that will bring a smile to your face. So how about this photo of our grand-daughter crawling on the grass for the first time ever?

June’s Last photo

Yesterday we went on a coach trip. It rained all morning – although fortunately it cleared up later – and at the side of the road I saw this foxglove, complete with raindrops.

The Thames, Near Barnes Bridge

Hard to believe, but this is the River Thames at Barnes. As the crow flies, it’s only a few miles to the very heart of the city, but it could be a different world. You don’t want to know how much the houses cost around here.

One (?) Careful Owner

Looming Menace

It must be said that the monochrome version of this image of a huge pile of hay bales covered in black plastic does have a lot more impact than the colour original.

Past Its sell-By Date

This abandoned building in the centre of the city of Cahors isn’t old enough to benefit from the preservation efforts that go into maintaining the medieval part, but is no longer modern enough to have any practical use.
