On the right lines

The photo I have chosen for the Lines challenge from the Daily Post has many, many lines. The refurbishment of the roof at Carlisle station was almost complete, when I was waiting for a train before Easter. I was under an awning, which showed the “before”, whereas the main roof was “after”.

Most of the lines of the roof are straight, but the railway lines follow a curved path through the station.

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.)

 

All creatures great and small

I have picked out two photos for this week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post – Scale.

Whitehaven Harbour

The first is the view of Whitehaven from the viewing gallery at the Beacon Museum on a dull day in August. Can you find the swans?

Flummoxed frog

The second photo is a frog. It had jumped down from a raised flowerbed and seemed to be wondering if it could jump up 2 feet or more. The yellow spot is a leaf, which had stuck to it.
