This week, I present a rare example of me multi-tasking. The image of these swans was captured by the lake next to Linlithgow Palace and it fulfils the criteria not only for Cee’s Midweek Challenge, where the prompt was ‘white’, but also her Black & White Challenge, for which the theme was ‘birds’.
Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is animals, either wild or farmed. We are encouraged to be creative, however, so here is an image of an elaborate wall hanging that’s on display in the Japanese galleries of the Victoria & Albert Museum (the V&A) in London.
Cee’s Black & White Challenge for this week is to show places to walk or hike. Out here in the French countryside the ‘proper’ roads are few and far between, but there are many mysterious-looking tracks, used only for farmers’ access, that are well worth exploring on a country walk.
In this case, I particularly liked the strong shadows of the trees across the path, which look almost like railway sleepers as they recede into the distance .
