Tuesday Photo Challenge: Reflection

Reflections are one of my favourite photographic subjects and I have posted quite a few here. Many of these have been of the River Vienne as it flows through the nearby town of Confolens and here’s another one, previously unseen.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Birthday

Frank has set the theme of ‘Birthday’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge and invites us to take creative licence with the subject.

So naturally I am taking it absolutely literally, with this image of one of our twin grandsons on the actual day of his birth. They were very premature  and very small, as you can see. They spent a good few weeks in intensive care before they were allowed home. You should see them now, though, eleven years later.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Go Big

For Frank’s theme this week of ‘Go Big’, here is a view of part of the exterior of the Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman. It’s pretty big inside, too.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Our World

You may think that in this part of the world – deep in rural France – you’d never see a traffic jam.

Oh, but you do. Just wait until that big tractor pulls out right in front of you on a narrow road and proceeds to dawdle along at 15 miles an hour halfway to the next town.

Somehow, though, when it’s one of the local farmers moving some of his sheep from one field to another, it doesn’t seem so bad. There’s always time in our world.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Light and Dark

Capturing the detail in his old window at the Abbey of Noirlac was quite a challenge, particularly with the strong sunlight shining through the leaded glass into an otherwise very dark room.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Backyard

Not in my backyard…but in my mother’s.

The almost translucent heads of these three stray poppies, sneaking under the fence from next door, stood out really well against the wooden fence. My new(ish) iPhone captured them pretty sharply, I think.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Scene

This was the scene that would confront me when I stood at night on the balcony of our apartment in Abu Dhabi.

It’s a lot quieter here.
