Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Circles and Curves

Well hello again, and welcome to this week’s contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. The theme is Circles and Curves.

Before I move on to this week’s challenge, I want to say that I’m so pleased to be one of the featured bloggers in last week’s black and white photo challenge. Thank you Cee! You can click here to see those photos. At the bottom of this post I have put the links to the other featured bloggers. Please pay them a visit and admire their wonderful photos.

Now for this week’s challenge…keep on reading and scrolling down…

Circles and curves are everywhere, nature, at home, on the road. It’s such a universal shape, representing the totality of life, the infinite nature of the universe and the perfection of perpetual motion.

Commitment between people is symbolised with the exchange of rings, a never ending circle, representing a bond that is supposed to last forever.

Now the photos I present here are not of rings. Scroll down to see what I’ve come up with this week.

Intertwining circles made of metal, a lovely piece of art that I wish I had hanging in my garden.

I wonder what is just around that curve?

Ag shame, I wonder if that grasshopper knows that it can jump right out of the circle of grass and thus escape to freedom…?

Circles and curves. Can you see the circle in the wine glass?

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – September 28, 2016

In Cee’s words this challenge is about:

This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

I have opted for the urban ‘which ways’ this week, and a store sign – they also count.

Scroll to enjoy the selection.

A store sign – the drought is taking its toll on the supply of blemish-free fruits and vegetable. I, for one, don’t mind.

WordPress Weekly Photo: Sea-Quest

The lighthouse at Cabo de Sâo Vicente in the Algarve is one of the 10 largest in the world, and guards one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. It began operating in 1846, and still today guides mariners on their sea-quests.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Two

So happy to have been chosen as one of the featured bloggers with this post. Read on…

The theme today is “two” wonderful people! As Cee says:

Two different things or the number two.  I am looking for opposites or two totally unrelated subjects.  Or you can take it the easy way out and simply use the number 2.

I’m taking the easy way.

Two people…two fingers

And finally, two footprints. Or is it one? As in one pair of footprints? I’ll go with two, as in two different feet made them.
