Alma mater

This is one of the many fine, typically Scottish stone buildings that form the estate of St Leonard’s School in St Andrews, my daughter’s eye-wateringly reassuringly expensive boarding school all those years ago.

Call the glazier

The best you can say about these windows is that they let the light in.

Along with everything else.

This tower is part of the ruins of the medieval castle in St. Andrews.

Channeling King Canute

My grandson doing his King Canute impression here by trying to turn back the tide on the beach at St Andrews.

Result: predictable. But full marks for trying.

Lobster Pots

One of the possible subjects for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is ‘fishing items’.

I saw this pile of artfully positioned lobster pots on the quayside in St Andrews, in Scotland. Those figures are standing on the seawall on the other side of the harbour: the lobster pots aren’t that big.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Face In The Crowd

This anonymous dog-walker, lost in his own thoughts but with his faithful pet loyally tagging along, may not even have noticed the exceptionally blue sea on a perfect autumn day at St Andrews harbour – nor all the other people with their dogs that surrounded him: at a respectful, privacy-preserving, distance, of course.

Ladder

The theme  for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is ‘Shadows’. This is the top of a ladder which allows sailors to step down into their boats from the jetty at Saint Andrews harbour, in Scotland. The low, bright sunlight casts strong shadows on and from the freshly painted metalwork – too red not to apply some selective colour to the image.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude
