Tuesday Photo Challenge: Challenge

Frank’s challenge for this week is ‘challenge’; which is a bit of a challenge in itself.

However, at the Cassinomagus Gallo-Roman archaelogical site of Cassinomagus, in the neighbouring département of Vienne, they sometimes put on gladiatorial displays, where two fighters challenge each other to combat.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Contact

My grandson is a study in concentration as he tries to get his tennis racket to make contact with that pesky ball.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Light and Dark

Capturing the detail in his old window at the Abbey of Noirlac was quite a challenge, particularly with the strong sunlight shining through the leaded glass into an otherwise very dark room.

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.

I couldn’t help but be struck by the vibrant colours of this slide in a childrens’ playground in Abu Dhabi.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Treat

Last Friday, two days before our twin grandsons’ birthday, was also their last day in the prep, before moving up to senior school in September. So naturally Granma of the unlimited talents rustled up some treats fro the boys to share with their classmates.

There were even a few left over (for quality control purposes, obviously).

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Promise

It’s hard to think of any promises more important than wedding vows.
