What could be more ephemeral than a firework?

Bathrooms aren’t the most obvious source of photographic inspiration, so I’m indebted to Cee for forcing me to use a bit of imagination for a change. This is a close-up of the rather complicated arrangement of taps (or ‘robinets’ in French) on the side of my bath.

This is a detail from one of the underpasses – each individually designed – that are dotted along the Corniche in Abu Dhabi.

It takes a lot to move me to incandescent rage, but my encounters with the phenomenon of ‘selfie sticks’ when in Venice last year prompted me to this rant. And I have to say that time has proved to be no emollient.
As far as I can see, there is only one possible valid use for a selfie stick, and since science has already invented colonoscopes for that kind of thing, even that’s debatable.
But, if you want something in response to Cee’s latest Black & White challenge, here’s a photograph I took on Burano last October.

This week’s challenge asks us to feature the colour orange in a gallery. Ours not to reason why, so here are three images heavy on the orange:
1) A spectacular sunset over Beverley in Yorkshire
2) Part of the innards of a vintage tractor, taken at the display of old-time cars and agricultural machinery in Lesterps
3) All I know about this is that it’s a flower and I took the photograph in Abu Dhabi. Anybody know what it is?
(Incidentally, apart from some cropping of the second and third, there’s been no post-processing of any of these images. Which is unusual for me.)
