Hydrangea

The theme for the Fun Foto Challenge this week is something that reminds us of nature’s beauty.

I seem to recall from my distant days as a Philosophy undergraduate that there is quite some debate as to whether ‘beauty’ exists anywhere other than the eye of the beholder. However, it’s hard to argue against the view that this hydrangea – a recent addition to our garden- fits the bill on this occasion.

Raising a smile

For her Fun Foto Challenge this week, Cee is looking for an image that will bring a smile to your face. So how about this photo of our grand-daughter crawling on the grass for the first time ever?

The Thames, Near Barnes Bridge

Hard to believe, but this is the River Thames at Barnes. As the crow flies, it’s only a few miles to the very heart of the city, but it could be a different world. You don’t want to know how much the houses cost around here.

Past Its sell-By Date

This abandoned building in the centre of the city of Cahors isn’t old enough to benefit from the preservation efforts that go into maintaining the medieval part, but is no longer modern enough to have any practical use.

The Rusty Hinge

This extremely rusty hinge can be found in the outdoor war memorial of Oradour-sur-Glane.

The Paraglider

This image of a paraglider at the summer Airshow in Blond provides a pleasingly symmetrical combination of circles and curves.

The centrepiece

This is a detail from the centrepiece of a quilt that was shown at an Expo in Nantes a few years ago. It is to all intents and purposes entirely made up of squares and triangles.

Plenty of edges on view here, in the wall in my daughter’s back garden.
