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.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Toys

My grandson picks out a tune (kind of…) on the new toy keyboard that he’s just got for Christmas.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Field

we bought our house in France with two fields attached – about seven acres in total. The first time we saw them, this piece of agricultural ‘kit’ was parked up just inside the gate.

I believe it’s a mobile feed dispenser for sheep (our neighbour, who had a flock of sheep at the time, used the fields for grazing). Sadly, it was gone by the time we completed the purchase.

Perhaps it went to a museum although, given the notable dearth of sentimentality among those who actually have to live off the land, it could just as easily have been converted to firewood.
