Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Fences and Gates


A Gate to nowhere!…

Standing at nearly 10 foot tall this gate rally does go nowhere…. it is a Sculpture installation in an exhibition….. as you can imagine it created a great deal of comment and discussion.

In contrast here are three rather more conventional gates.  One a Church Lych Gate then a couple of farm gates, both rather lost in vegetation!

Just a few ideas for this weeks challenge, I hope you enjoy.

Flippant Friday…. Many An Old Tune


When I first spotted this old piano there was a feeling of sadness, thoughts of the life and fun that the instrument must have given over many years. Rather poignant that is just left abandoned to the savages of weather.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shiny

Mirror Like

Water, Water in the pool and who’s the shiniest of us all ?

Mirror like reflection off the still waters of the harbour add extra shine to what was a sunny morning.

The subject for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge is Shine. So here are several more items that illustrate shine.

Shiny Copper Pots are one…. whilst a well polished Floor is yet another…

But for a real shine we have this Tear Drop (or may be a Rain Drop)….it is a Installation, part of a Sculpture Show at Chatsworth House…. and is the work of the Artist Richard Hudson…
