Flower

 

Continuing my exploration of online portfolios and WordPress Themes here is a close-up of a flower from my collection.

With a bit of luck this should automatically post to my Facebook Page rather than me having to cut and paste the link and insert into post on my feed.

This is far from perfect but probably the best I’m going to get.

If this works then I’ll invite more people to my new Facebook page (Graham’s Favourites).

Time for Landscapes

Of course I don’t only point my camera at people. Here are some landscape photos of the English countryside and the Humber Bridge together with photos of the Alaskan glaciers and a glimpse of the Chihuly Museum next to the Space Needle in Seattle.

I’ve added these to the Landscape section of my favourite photos.

Daily Post Photo Challenge – Names

Names is the first challenge for the Daily Post Photo Challenge in 2017. A visit to one of our supermarkets in town during the lead up to Christmas always brings a smile as staff wear fancy dress. They do seem to be enjoying themselves too don’t they. Please say hello to Lorraine and James who kindly posed for me.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is : Local

It’s difficult for me to pick a ‘local’. I moved towns 3 times before emigrating to Switzerland where I lived for 35 years. Now I’m back in the UK and enjoying life here in Lincolnshire.

I knew I wanted to buy our house when I sat in the empty sunroom and admired the view to the living room. Of all the rooms it is the one I feel most at home in  whether it’s to curl up and read a book on the cuddler or to admire the laser light show and the Christmas Tree in Winter.

It has become my local, my favourite place.

Crop : OWPC

This week’s One Word Photo Challenge is Crop. I chose the unharvested version of crop but there are many ways to interpret the prompt and I’m looking forward to discovering the other entries!

I can’t thank Jennifer Nichole Wells enough for organising this wonderful photo challenge. The fact that she publishes the agenda so we can prepare both photos and posts is really comforting. Thanks Jennifer!

 

OWPC : Contrast

Contrast

This week’s One Word Photo Challenge is : Contrast

It’s an interesting theme, and I’m really looking forward to all the other participant’s photos.

My personal favourite is the photo of the Lincolnshire Houses in the late afternoon sun. I’ve always liked the contrast between the dark grey sky and the red and yellow bricks.
