Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene

There are few things that convey a greater sense of serenity than a perfect reflection, as in this image of the River Vienne as it flows through the town of Chabanais.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Bridge

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘Bridge’, so here’s a twofer: two of the bridges that span the River Lot in the town of Cahors.

This more modern road bridge isn’t too shabby, especially when the shadows make it look a little like a set of nutcrackers:

…although the famous one is the medieval Pont Valentré:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

Another dip into the archives for the Weekly Photo Challenge this time, as I’m still away from home and therefore from full access to my image library.

Here, my grandson takes a peek around the patio door of our apartment in Abu Dhabi. He – and his twin brother – are rather bigger now.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Pedestrians, but hardly a pedestrian setting.

In Venice, and also on the islands in the Venetian Lagoon, if you’re not in a boat then you have to be a pedestrian. These particular examples of the species are walking alongside one of the small canals on the island of Burano.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Elemental

It’s not the easiest thing to find an image that shows all four primal elements at once.

However, this picture, taken along a lane about a mile from here, undoubtedly conveys three of them: air, water and earth. And since the sun was shining, perhaps that could be taken for fire. In any case, it’s a tranquil rural scene.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Perfect reflections of the Pont Vieux on the River Vienne as it flows through the town of Confolens.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

“A harmonious, pleasing combination” – the old stonework of the Pont Vieux that crosses  the Vienne river as it flows through the town of Confolens on a calm, sunny day.

And what  could be a better match than a reflection – especially when even the tall trees in the background echo the reflection in the water of the lamp post in the middle of the bridge?
