Tuesday Photo Challenge: Rise

“May the road rise up to meet you..”

 – traditional Irish blessing

Walk a mile west along the track that runs through Tranquility Base and you’ll reach this ‘main’ road, heading north to Saint-Martial-sur-Isop and points beyond:

Road, Side

A different perspective on this litle track that runs off the road between here and the next hamlet:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

A pretty straightforward response to this week’s challenge subject of ‘Mirror’, but I like the way that (fortuitously) the reflected clouds blend with the actual clouds beyond, while the blue sky between the clouds in the mirror itself reflects the curve of the road.

This mirror is at a particularly awkward junction in the nearby town of Le Dorat, although the road was clear when I took the photograph: just as well, because I was probably standing in the middle of it at the time.

And here’s another mirror image, also from Le Dorat and already published in another post, with clouds reflected in one of the metal discs that demarcate parking spaces in the main square:

Leading Lines

Leading lines could well be the first basic tool of composition that I picked up on and have stuck with ever since – to the extent that in many cases the leading lines are the image. Anyway, I seem to have plenty of them, of which these are a few – and, hopefully, varied – examples.

And finally, in a shameless attempt to earn a gold star, two images of curved leading lines

The sights of Venice

For this week’s entry to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, here is an image from Venice, which does feature a road (‘Calle’) leading down to the Grand Canal, although it’s a moot point whether the road is the principal focus for the gentleman on the left.

The high contrast from the strong shadows works well in Black & White, I think, as does the highlighted texture of the walls.
