Frank has set the theme of ‘Worship’ for the Tuesday Photo Challenge this week.
Always pleased to have an opportunity to showcase one of the most visually stunning places of worship you’re ever likely to see – he Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi

This image is multi-tasking as my entry this week for both Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge with the theme of ‘Round’ and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, where the subject is “Patterns‘.
It is a photograph of one of the magnificent crystal chandeliers in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, captured by setting my camera’s auto-timer and laying it on the floor of the prayer hall, pointing up at the ceiling.

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Growth’, so flowers seems like a logical place to go to find an appropriate image, notwithstanding that I posted a picture of some roses last time.
I saw this tightly packed group of lily buds in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney a few years ago. There’s plenty of potential growth here and perhaps the tight crop lifts the shot a little out of the ordinary.

Frank’s chosen the topic of ‘Rose’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge. I have no shortage of images of roses in my library, so the only problem was selecting one previously unposted. I think this fits the bill. It’s a French rose called ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ and I saw it last year at the annual festival of roses at Doué-La-Fontaine

Every seven years, the Catholic church in the Limousin region holds the ‘Ostensions’, when relics of the saints are paraded in procession around many of the towns and villages of the region. To mark the occasion the streets are decorated with flags and bunting, such as these flapping in the breeze outside the cathedral of Limoges.

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Gentle’.
This is a picture of my grandson enjoying bathtime. It goes without saying that the soap that produced all those bubbles was a very gentle one.
