Weekly Photo Challenge – Connected


Connected – with some memories

Some old cottage style terraced housing in Bramham.

This was taken back in March 2014 and it was the day we both realised how bad my heart condition had got. This previous post explains. It’s on the river Wharfe between Grassington and Burnsall and has a special memory.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Creepy


Well I thought I had many photos that I would call creepy, but on looking through my collection, I did not have that many.

Sometime ago, we went to Crook Hall at Durham, in the North East. It was a beautiful place, and great for garden photgraphs. HoweveP1010648r, I did find this stone effigy, more than a little disturbing. I have no idea who it is supposed to represent, but think, given the area, it could be St Cuthbert ?

P1010062The last one, I took whilst out walking locally. What I remember most about it was that just as I pressed the shutter, there was a rustling noise right in front of me. What happened next scared the life out of me. I had just put the camera away, when a deer suddenly shot out out the trees and stopped in front of me. By the time I had calmed down it had gone, and a great photo opportunity had been missed. It still gives me the shivers though!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half


This is the second attempt at this ‘Weekly Photo Challenge’ and if it is half as successful as last weeks, then I will be very pleased.

It was taken some months ago, and although not a direct half and half split, I think it just about fits the brief..

However, the whole concept goes against what I have always been told about photograph composition ie photographs should be divided into an odd number of areas. This is to create ‘further interest’ as a seasoned landscape photographer once told me..
