Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 30 – After

After a hard day’s playing, what could be better than to snuggle under the quilts that grandma made and take a snooze?

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29 – Open

This open book, suspended in mid-air, was part of an artistic installation in the Visitor Centre at the Oradour-sur-Glane memorial. If books survive, and they can still be opened, then perhaps there is some hope in that.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 – Fresh

It probably doesn’t get much fresher than this colourful display of salad leaves at the Rialto Market in Venice:

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 – Gap

In the gap betwen two high-rise buildings in central Sydney, here we see the New Year’s Eve firework display (with the added bonus of reflections in the plate glass). This was a 0.5 second exposure, but I think the resultant slight blur makes the light from the fireworks even more dramatic than it actually was.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 18 – Sweet

I recently posted a photograph of one of my grandsons in blissful contemplation of a pain au chocolat. That was in response to a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. Now, as I have twin grandsons, Hugh’s latest weekly challenge – Sweet – provides a perfect opportunity to redress the balance and post a photograph of my other grandson in equally blissful contemplation, this time of an ice-cream. Chocolate and pistachio: what’s not to like?

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 17 – Calm

If I come out of my house, walk the 25 yards or so up to the road and look to my left, this is what I see. And people wonder why I refer to the petit hameau we live in as ‘Tranquility Base’.

(By the way, this is rush hour.)

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 12 – Games

This week’s theme is ‘Games’, so here is a photograph taken last summer of my twin grandsons playing basketball in our swimming pool.
