Tuesday Photo Challenge: Street

All the most interesting streets have a bend in them so you can’t see where they’re leading to – like this one in the old part (Cité) of Carcassonne, in southern France:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Travel

This week, Frank of Dutch Goes The Photo! has gone off on his holidays so, appropriately, has selected the theme of ‘travel’ for his latest Tuesday Challenge.

It’s a very broad theme, of course; as Frank says, travel could be anything as mundane as a daily commute. However, I’ve selected a rather more exotic image that tries to convey ‘travel’ as the state of being somewhere very different from what you’re used to.

I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to travel quite extensively, for both business and pleasure. The first doesn’t count so much perhaps, but for somewhere very different – in terms of both place and time – one of my all-time favourite places has to be Petra. It’s one of the most photographed locations on the planet, but at least this isn’t a photograph of the iconic Nabatean Treasury (although there are a few photographs of that particular edifice elsewhere on this blog if you care to look).

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Healthy

This week, Frank has chosen the theme of ‘Healthy’ for his Tuesday Photo Challenge. A bit tricky, but this greengrocer’s stall in the Rialto Market in Venice has an abundance of stuff that’s supposed to be good for you:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Mystery

Today I am participating for the first time – as it moves into its second year – in the Tuesday Photo Challenge hosted by Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo!

The theme for this week is ‘Mystery’. This photograph shows part of the astonishing painted ceiling in the crypt of the village church of Gargilesse, in central France. Clearly, it’s a religious – specifically Christian and even more specifically Roman Catholic – theme, and as such some of the imagery is familiar, but there’s also some that’s a mystery, at least to me.
