Rural Toys

If you grow up in the countryside, chances are that you’ll be playing with country toys….

….and when you don’t play with them any more, you collect them..

Lost In Translation

Some things just don’t work in another language…

Cee’s Midweek Challenge 21 April 2021

Shiny Scent Bottles

This week’s Fun Foto challenge is looking for something shiny. These perfume bottles were part of a collection that was displayed at a ‘hobbies’ expo a couple of years ago.

The Die Is Cast

Smaller than a breadbin (as per Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week).? Most definitely.

I took this photo with my smartphone, then applied the ‘Pinhole Camera’ filter in Photoshop Express for added interest.

Green, Green Glass

It’s colour week for Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week and the chosen colour is light or neon green.

Handily, another of the panes of stained glass in the suncatcher that I featured a couple of weeks ago here fits the bill, and is a pleasingly abstract image (which reminds me a little of a slide under a microscope).

The Rusty Pram

The Fun Foto Challenge this week has the theme of ‘texture’. There’s lots of that in this battered old doll’s baby carriage, not to mention the concreted wall behind it and the gravel beneath.

Popeye The Smuggler

I was surprised to find this model boat at an airshow, of all places. I may never look at Popeye in the same light again.

Rainbow Wool

It’s macro/close-up week for Cee’s Midweek Challenge.

Madame has been knitting recently, using some multi-coloured wool.

A Matter Of Scale

Cee’s theme for the Fun Foto Challenge this week is the size comparison of objects.

From Madame’s extensive collection of elephants:

Inevitably, this challenge reminded me of some classic Father Ted (for the uninitiated, one of the finest UK sitcoms of the past forty years)

BBQ Time

For her Black & White Challenge this week, Cee is looking for something that would be found on a picnic table or in a park.

This – sitting on our picnic table – is the rather nifty spatula from our set of barbecue tools.
