Monday Window Tranquility Base (again)

Q: When is a window not a window?

A: When it used to be one.

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.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 8 – Leading Lines

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.

Muddy tracks

There are many ‘roads’ like this one around here – access tracks for agricultural equipment. You certainly wouldn’t want to try and get your shiny new roadster along here, or even your flash SUV, probably.

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.

K is for kite

Something involving the letter K is Cee’s Fun Foto prompt for this week, so here is a very large kite that was flying at the annual ‘Estevol’ airshow last summer.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Number

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

I spotted this lorry in the Sydney suburb of Manley. There are lots of numbers on it and I have no further comment.

Monday Window – Nantes

Regular viewers of these weekly posts may have noticed that I alternate between religious and secular windows. On this particular Monday it’s time for a massive display of stained glass, here ifrom the recently refurbished cathedral in the city of Nantes.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 7 – Love Story

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?
