Memories across the sands of time, memories from Crete…. one at a time..
One evening we sat on the beach, together, watching the sun descend the sky , behind the mountains.Light rippled over the sand.
light and shade, warm and cool, time , endless time…..
Sophie at CGDN has been organizing the photo hunts each month. In August she changed not only her own blog, now re named Sophie in the Sticks but also the photo hunts. Instead of being given a list 11 words and a bonus picture to take she has made it a Photo Show and Tell.
I had enjoyed the photo hunts and I decided to draw up my own list of 11 words and soon realized that the fun would not be there if it was just me. What to to do- I already show and tell my photographs!
What was I doing in August ? Could I take 12 photographs to tell a story whilst preserving anonymity? Have a look and tell me if I have succeeded.
Joining with Sophie
Do check out her amazing insect shots
Not certain what to do next month- make my own list of words, try another story, 12 random shots? Love to hear your thoughts.
I love the concept of looking for fences to photograph- somehow it just appeals to me.What I hadn’t realized was how it was going to enable me to look and think more about my surroundings. As a result some of the best and most interesting pictures I took in Santorini occurred because I was looking for Fences. Here are the first 4.
A fence on a house near our appartment.
Goats in the town where we stayed!
Outside a church in Fira.
A garden in Fira.
What I like is that they are all fences and yet range from the practical to the decorative and from domestic to public!
More to come next week.Linking in with Jan and Jer at Friday Fences
Another challenging selection from Sophie at CGDN
Do click on the pictures to see them properly.
Design– a classic car snapped at the 60’s festival last month
This is Fountains Abbey and it struck me that once upon a time these monasteries must have seemed rock solid institutions!
Pickering Market- Mondays and this is a jolly good bread stall.
That pheasant is walking!
Honeysuckle in our garden.
I am staggered that my little Canon camera managed to capture these midges!
Love the colour contrast on these trees!
The sun was shining so it was time for a Day Out. And so off to Fountains Abbey. Near Ripon, North Yorkshire.
When you look at my pictures you’ll think that looks familiar- Fountains Abbey after all is a World Heritage site.
You can even get married here
After exploring the Abbey and the Mill you stroll off into the grounds of Studley Royal
And see the Georgian Water Garden, currently under restoration with a new yew hedge.
The undergrowth is gradually being cleared away.
Leaving behind the water garden and going up the hill of the Deer Park you glimpse this Victorian gem.
St Mary’s church.
On a Saturday afternoon there is an organ recital, we caught the last twenty minutes and it was just glorious.
I love this roof!
Just about got this shot through the grill which surrounds this memorial.
A Fabulous day out. Can also recommend the coffee cake!!!!
