Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

What could be more appropriate for this week’s theme of ‘Connected’ than a wedding?

I’m very happy to say that I took this photograph last Saturday at my son’s wedding. Stealing the show between the bride and groom is their much-loved dog.

Abstract shadows

Palm trees cast long shadows across a path in Hili Oasis, near Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, producing the illusion of depth in an abstract image that makes me think of something a space probe might send back from the surface of a distant planet. (Although that’s probably just me.)

You’d never classify them among nature’s greatest beauties, but snails can be fascinating creatures.

Crocuses

Presenting a monochrome image of a flower that’s at least as interesting as the original is quite challenging, since one of the main selling-points of flower photography is the colour. Hopefully, though, this picture of a couple of crocuses does the job – helped by the lead-in lines provided by the leaves.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy

Here is an image you could describe as creepy. Or maybe just plain weird. Taken through a shop doorway in Venice last year.

Moving Parts

Not a refugee from a Transformers movie, but a close-up of one of the cylinders on a propeller engine from an old aeroplane.
