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.

Mundane? Shop Window

A butcher’s window display that I spotted in one of the narrow streets of the San Polo neighbourhood of Venice. The big hand-written sign ‘Oggi c’e il capretto’ means ‘Today we have kid [as in kid goat]’ and there it is, hanging right in the middle.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 12 – Street

Week 12 of the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge hosted by The Girl That Dreams Awake has the topic of ‘Street’.

The genre of ‘street photography’ isn’t really my thing. However, this is probably my favourite street view: the road that runs through our hamlet of ‘Tranquility Base’. In the rush hour.

(Confession time: I’ve used this image before, in a post on my other site. Although, to judge from the stats, you won’t have seen it.)

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.)

Bricks and a bike in Bruges

Three for the price of one this week.

Cee’s latest Black & White challenge  calls for something beginning with either B or W. Well, here is an image of a bicycle propped up against a brick wall in Bruges. Which, come to think of it, is in Belgium.

B or W

Oh, and what do bicycles have? Why, wheels of course. So make that four for the price of one.
