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.

Morning : The Daily Post Photo Challenge

Another well chosen theme for The Daily Post Photo Challenge today : Morning.

Poppies : Wave

I’m sure you saw the Poppies at the Tower of London, either in person or on TV in late 2014.

I was lucky to visit Lincoln Castle yesterday to have a look at an exhibition which continues until late September and uses Poppies from that installation.

Lincoln Castle is the second venue to present Poppies: Wav by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper.

Wave is from the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ – poppies and original concept created by artist Paul Cummins and installation designed by Tom Piper – by Paul Cummins Ceramics Limited in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces, originally at HM Tower of London 2014.

A Photo a Week Challenge : Phone-tography

The challenge in the A Photo a Week Challenge is to provide a photo taken with a mobile phone.

These four images were taken with an iPhone 6s plus and illustrate how mobile phones cope well in two situations, low light photos (Lincolnshire sunsets) and photos from an airplane (flight over Peru and the Andes).

I call these four photos my Fire and Ice set ; a vague reference to Game of Thrones

Spare : The Daily Post Photo Challenge

The theme of the Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Spare.

These images are of Thornton Abbey in North Lincolnshire, UK. As you can see there is not much left of the Abbey now. The site is spare but the Abbey has been spared from further destruction and is a popular visitors attraction. The last photo is a view back to the Gatehouse of the Abbey which is also well worth a visit.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Jubilant


Two photo challenges in one day because yesterday we were away in Liverpool to see Gordon Lightfoot in concert. Excellent Concert!

I love mixing and matching so if you have the time listen to Gordon!
