Going up

I have stretched the meaning of Ascend for this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post. Ascend means to go up. Christmas decorations have been going up in many places. Ours at home were put up on Wednesday, when the temperature rose slightly so that the loft was not such an unappealing place to enter.

In shopping malls they have already been up for weeks. Here are two I took in November. I had not even ascended by escalator having entered the mall on the first floor level. (US readers might count that as the second floor: we have ground floor, first floor and so on.)

Ornamental adornments are ornate

When I read that this week’s photo challenge from Ben Huberman of the Daily Post was to show something ornate, I thought of ornaments.  At this time of year in the UK many shops and shopping centres are already decorated for Christmas.  For those which are not and anyone else wishing to buy decorations, there are specialist shops.  I spotted one on Saturday in Carlisle and stood outside in the rain with my phone to take a couple of snaps.  Later I took some photos of lights and decorations in a mall.
