Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental

In an unusual move I thought I would post a response to the current Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental. On Saturday 28 October the family and I were going to go to Warwick Castle for the day and stay on to see the night time joust. We went last year and it was spectacular, but whenContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

Time for another old photo challenge. This time – Shadow.   I am only going to post one photo for this challenge and I would love to know what you think after seeing this, but before you see the photo here is a little background to it.   The photo was taken in February 2016.Continue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

Thought I’d do an almost current photo challenge for once as the last challenge was one that I found a very good example of by chance on a day out for my Dad’s Birthday. Waiting.   Well, you may have guessed from the header image that this was to do with trains. But it isContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

In my next rather out of date photo challenge reply I am going to look at the theme from 20 January 2017 (I’ve skipped quite a few weeks between the last photo challenge and this one). The theme is: Graceful https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/graceful/   The obvious starting point for me was the same example as used inContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful”

All Saints Flower Festival

On the weekend of 10th and 11th June 2017 All Saints Church on Park Road in Peterborough held a Flower Festival to help raise funds for some roof repairs to the church. Although a success more money still needs to be raised – please see the end of this post for details. People were ableContinue reading “All Saints Flower Festival”

My Good, Bad, and Ugly Competition Results from ViewBug 5

I haven’t posted in this series for a very long time having intended to make this at least a relatively regular one. Time to start catching up. As a quick note this post has been sat in the drafts for so long that I don’t think the winners in the competitions are obvious from theContinue reading “My Good, Bad, and Ugly Competition Results from ViewBug 5”

Weekly Photo Challenge: H20

The weekly photo challenge from 07 October 2016 was water: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/h2o/   As subjects go it is fairly straight forward, so how best to utilise it. Water of course is everywhere, so there are a number of things that can be done, most of which I have not to tried, but here are a few photos thatContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: H20”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

The next WP I am going to respond to is Mirror, capturing reflections in whatever you happen to see them in: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/mirror/ There are of course lots of things that you get reflections in – mirrors, glasses, bodies of water, metallic objects and so on. Each of these gives differing levels of reflectivity. Some willContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

So the photo challenge I am doing this time was from August 2016, the challenge being to “find an alternative frame to the world around you” – https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/frame/.   This is something I often do when looking at architectural photos – the frames are often built in to what you are photographing, if you’ll pardonContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

Yes, this really is a weekly photo challenge, it’s just that the challenge was a long time ago – it was in July 2016 in fact. As per usual I haven’t blogged for a while as I usually take a long time to prepare the posts the way I want.   So the theme for thisContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up”
