Keep Out – Or Keep In?

‘Fences and gates’ is what Cee is looking for in her Black & White Photo Challenge. ‘Fences and gates’ note: strictly speaking, this is not an either/or.

Okay then, how about this?

A House Divided

One thing at least we can agree on: there are two ms in’ Marmite’. Accordingly, this image qualifies for Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week.

Traditionally, there is no middle way when it comes to Marmite: you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I am strongly of the latter persuasion, but Madame loves it – particularly with the added refinement of salad cream.

Don’t judge us.

I suppose it could be worse: she might support Everton.

Shoot me now…

Shepherds’ Delight

Last week for the Fun Foto Challenge we had the theme of ‘Here Comes The Sun’. This prompted me to post an image of dawn breaking in our little part of the world.

This week, the topic is ‘Tomorrow’, which gave me the idea of posting an image of a sunset holding out the promise of a pleasant day to come. As the old saw has it: ‘red sky at night, shepherds’ delight’.

This photo was also taken outside the back of our house, although obviously this time facing west rather than east.

(And before you say it, I am fully aware of the fundamental futility of having a gate that you can just walk around. But it does add interest to the image.)

Signs Of Life

There are many animal tracks to be seen in this part of the desert outside Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates.

Complexity

This close-up of a small part of the infrastructure of the Sydney Harbour Bridge gives some idea of the intricate complexity of the steelwork.

Resolutely Red

Although it’s sitting quietly in a collection of other vintage vehicles housed in an old stable block at Chateau Meillard, in central France, this specimen remains resolutely red.

Affordable Motoring

Believe it or not, we do actually know somebody who has a large collection of real vintage Ferraris, but this local collector – like most of us – had to settle for the ‘small world’ versions.

Pulling in the punters

The picturesque city of Perigueux is (in normal times) a popular tourist destination. Inevitably that means there are lots of shops, all competing for footfall from passers-by. Signs alone are not enough in some cases.
