CFFC: One Blue Flower.

A second contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 1 Item or the Number One and alao a contribution to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

Shortly after posting my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: One Great Crested Grebe I went for a walk with the camera. I was testing a CCTV lens adapted to the camera and one of the things I photographed was this blue flower. I then added more blur to the already blurred background, a weak vignette and a Polaroid film type border.

My contribution to the COSMIC CURVATURE: ARCHITECTURAL MARVELS Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I decided to go with a selection of photos of St Mary’s Church, Nantwich, Cheshire, England, a 14th century church with a variety of interesting curves.

Boulder with lines of Quartz.

Monochrome Monday is going back to last autumn and a visit to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

I was photographing the boulders that surround Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street. I isolated this boulder because of the multiple white quartz lines running through it as I thought I would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

The new Tuesday Photo Challenge is Connections.

The challenge had me stuck for ideas until I thought of this shot. It makes me think of some sort of interlocking puzzle where you connect the pieces. Imagine how hard a large jigsaw puzzle of this shot would be.

The photo is of Privet leaves rimmed with hoarfrost. Photographed in Cheshire, England.
