Weekly Photo Challenge – Movement…kind of!

I was intrigued by the Weekly Photo Challenge this week because whilst I have recently snapped a few photos that show movement, those that really caught my eye showed little or none at all! As you can see, our dog Ben (Benji, BenTen, BenBen, Benjamina…aaand so on) has the knack for staying very still. This…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

This photo was taken in Bury St Edmund’s a couple of weeks ago. The East Anglia market town is a hive of activity on a Saturday when the market is bustling away but at the other end of the town it’s pretty quiet. This hotel is extraordinary with flowers still in bloom like the middle…

Weekly Photo Challenge: More Flowers!

The lush green grass caught my eye and the fact that it looks like a late student had crashed their bicycle outside and dashed through the entrance to their lecture! The next instalment of…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Colourful

Despite taking 100’s of snaps with my new (ish) camera phone I don’t seem to have much in the way of full bloom colour, rainbows, flowers, clowns, carnivals, hot air balloons or other assorted chunky colour filled shots. At least not this summer. So I’ve dug up a few photos I took waaaay back in…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sky

I’m a big sky/sunset photo fan! If I ever save enough money I’d love to buy a quality camera and some gear to take better landscape photos. Maybe one day, for now I’m happy snapping away at these glorious scenes. Taken just outside our village last week using my Nokia N8 camera phone. I’m taking…
