K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Yesterday’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post, remembering our fallen heroes…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Good morning and welcome to a new week and a new edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

You have my sympathy if you are waking up to another Monday at work, because I’m on holiday for a couple of days and this post is automatically scheduled(there’s no chance I’m actually awake as this is posted) sinceI managed to get it all edited last night.

This week’s theme was; Remembrance,to coincide with armistice day, commemorating the end of World War I, as a tribute to the men and women who served and continue to serve in the armed forces around the world.

Here is a link to K’lee’s photo, now it’s time for you to show us what you’ve got for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Today’s metallic mixture on the Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Welcome to metallic Monday on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I chose the theme for this week’s challenge on Friday and it was simply this; Metal.

Whatever metallic materials you wish to use for your photographic subject are acceptable; shiny, rusty, intricate, industrial, sculpted, molten, anything you like, as long as it’s metal.

I went the lightweight route, using aluminum foil in varying stages of scrunchiness, under different light sources and with a selection of coloured surfaces to reflect from, to create these artistic images.

K’lee’s photo for today can now be foundHERE.

Now, it’s your turn.

Time for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with today’s theme being, simply; Stone.

We’re spoilt for choice in the West Country, what with all the beautiful stone architecture and ancient stone monuments, so I thought I’d pick a selection, including an abandoned Cornish tin mine, a Neolithic settlement on Bodmin moor, some interesting rock formations, starting off with one of my favourite local stone buildings in Barnstaple.

A walk in Whiddon woods…

Audrey and I took a walk along the river, through the woods not far from where we live, to see what photo opportunities nature had to offer and to hone Audrey’s camera skills. I shall post the best of her Instagram pictures soon, but for now, here’s my contribution.

Wild garlic carpeted the floor of the woodland, the paths were dappled with sunshine, the river sparked attractively and somebody had even used art to give a tree some personality…

Arboretum of the imagination: Meetings with impossible trees…

Meetings with Remarkable Trees, by Thomas Pakenham, is a fabulous book and it’s where I stole the idea for the name of this post.

Other than that, there’s no connection, except for the trees, obviously…
