Saw some colourful stuff yesterday:
This was at a plant sale I went to with my Mum. Then we visited Ashbourne for coffee and they had the flags out:
They had held a Highland Games, hence the Scottish and English flags. It’s a tad south of Scotland, but I’m sure they had fun and it certainly made the town look very festive and colourful 🙂
Gah, late again 😦 but never mind. Not so many this week.
Plenty of numbers in this one 🙂 (from a charity shop in case you thought the dust was mine! Disowning that dust – I have plenty of my own ;))
From Ham House:
What’s your favourite?
I’m a little late on this one, but never mind, it’s not an exam!
I have loooots of pix of water! Even just the first 2 files I remember having some good ones have loads. Choosing is so hard! Water is very beautiful.
I even made a Blurb book just of photos of water and called it Water. Maybe I’ll post a link in case anyone wants to buy it! 🙂
Although I love pix of flowing water where the exposure is long so the water looks soft and magical, I most like to photograph water using the sport setting to freeze the water like ice or glass.
Yup, I love water 🙂
Ants are tiny, right? Hmm, these ones were huge for ants, but still a lot smaller than me 😀 Thank God!! Eeek! The idea of them being any bigger…
This one is friendlier 🙂
And more naughty lichens for my sister 😀
I like macro mode 😀
Well, I have about fifty trillion pics that would fit well in this category!
This is the one I first thought of before looking through my files:
Man made straight lines softened by nature. A return in winter with bare twigs would have given a striking contrast between the harsh straight lines of metal and the fractal branches.
This one also contrasts straight man made metal with chaotic nature in the frosty broken web:
I like the effect of that one.
It’s not always that way round – her is one where it is nature providing harsh straight lines and sharp points, while the man made wall is rounded:
And here are some more round metal lines:
I’m always looking for lines as they are an important element of photographic composition. As I said, I have loads more, but I shall just leave you with a last one which is a different take on the idea:
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have loads of photos of old stuff!
First up here is my old bear, Mid.
Mid is short for Middle Teddy; I had a Big Teddy and a Little Teddy too. Like Goldilocks, I found the middle sized one the most suitable and carried Mid with me everywhere, as you can see. Mid aged rapidly from new to old and now watches me as I gradually catch up…
This tree from the churchyard at Brailsford, Derbyshire, is very old:
It’s so old it has chain coming out of it!
The chain looks pretty old too.
But which is older, the tree or this cross shaft?
This is a thousand years old and is the base of what would have been a tall stone cross. The little warrior is surely too cute to be a Viking!
Here are some more cute and crazy medieval carvings from Derbyshire, this time inside Wirksworth church. The carvings are much older than the church and were incorporated into the fabric of the church when it was rebuilt.
My favourite is the anteater on acid in the bottom right!
Old stuff certainly isn’t boring! 😀
