I’ve managed to stay with this Smartphone Challenge on a weekly basis all year so far. Some of the topics have been – well, let’s just say ‘esoteric’ shall we? However, Week 47 is an absolute lulu:
“The rules of thirds is so popular because it is so versatile. This week use the rule of thirds to show emotion”
Now, even a hack like me knows about the rule of thirds, but to use that to convey emotion just makes no sense to me. You can certainly portray emotion in a photographic image, but the rule of thirds is surely incidental to that.
Anyway, here’s a picture of a cat asleep on a sofa. The emotion is irritation at such a daft challenge this week. Hrrumph.

Cee Neuner (what would we ever do without her?) has started a new weekly challenge: Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – hereinafter referred to as CMMC.
For the first topic she has challenged us to post an image that contains an item in one of her own photographs. The one she chose featured a fence, which gives me an opportunity to post this photograph of a spider’s web spun between two railings of a fence by the river Vienne in Chabanais.

When faced with a theme of the Seven Deadly Sins, one must choose carefully, for a variety of reasons.
I think I’m on reasonably safe ground with ‘greed’, however.
And Madame does make exceedingly good cakes….

You can’t help seeing a smiley face on this old RAF training aircraft at the Yorkshire Air Museum.

This dark red rose also has a wonderful scent.
