Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) Pick a topic from my photo with Rita guest host

This week’s challenge is similar to the first one of this series. The guest host, Rita, has lots of suggestions for subjects to pick from her interesting photo.

My photo this time is of a flag, which has been buffeted by the strong winds on the coast. Both the flag and the phone I used for the photo have been replaced since this photo was taken.


Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) Silver or Gold

This week Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge is for silver or gold

I had various ideas for a photo with silver and gold in it. I’d have liked to use plants, but in the end I chose a tapestry in our lounge. The metallic gold thread sparkles when the setting sun shines on it. The second photo was taken in normal daylight.

On the Hunt for Joy – Week 20  – Let a child decorate

Cee Neuneer’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge this week is Let a kid decorate. Being British and perhaps old-fashioned I have changed the title from kid to child!

Sometimes it is impossible to prevent children and young people from making their mark somewhere. Around the village decorated pebbles have multiplied. Many youngsters must have been busy!

This time my photos are of sandstone rocks on the beach. A few years ago the two rocks used to be one. I can remember the time we went to the beach and found that a large rock had split during a storm. The subsequent storms and normal tides have separated the two parts of the rock. Here in Britain we have been encouraging our key workers in the National Health Service (NHS) by clapping at 8pm on Thursdays and with rainbows displayed in windows.

The artwork on the rocks is by person or persons unknown, although someone called George may be a suspect. (The flat rock has a face with that name lightly scratched on the surface.)

The bee is a local symbol and it just happens that today (20 May) is #WorldBeeDay.
