Cover Art

Pete Rosos says,

For this week’s Photo Challenge, stimulate your creative process and imagine which of your images you would like to see gracing the cover of a book, an album, or a magazine. Would the image inspire us to take a peek through the pages, listen to the music, or buy a ticket to the show? Would it strike a chord with viewers, making them reflect on or revisit memories of places, people, and experiences?

This calls for weird doesn’t it? or perhaps its just an excuse for me to be silly. So this is the cover of a book that I would never write!

Refraction, maybe

Kevin Conboy says

For this photo challenge, show us what “refraction” means to you. It could be an image taken in a reflective surface, it could be light bent from behind an object, or it could mean remedial math homework: the choice is completely up to you. I’m looking forward to seeing how you interpret “refraction.”

Well that’s a tough one Kevin! But I’m giving it a go. back in June a had a birthday day out to Broomhill Sculpture Garden in north Devon. I posted photos a couple of times because I absolutely love sculpture and there is some remarkable work there. For some reason I held back the photos of one of my favourites, this challenge turns out to be why. I remember turning the corner on a wooded path and seeing this amazing blue light. Every movement you make around it shows a different image, I hope you like it as much as I did.

Dreamy

Michelle W says,

This week, we’d like to see an image that looks dreamy to you. A photo of a place you often visit in dreams. A snapshot of your dreamy boy- or girlfriend. A scene that looks a bit out-of-this world. Take us on a flight of fancy!

So I chose these photos, click for a larger view.

Do you have some dreamy photos? Check here to share them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at the Daily Post says,

For this challenge, share an image of a sign: it can be a sign near your home — a comforting sight after a long journey — a sign that doubles as art, or other types of signs that hold meaning for you.

Here are a few signs from my collection.

Lighting up the Marrakech night

Ben Huberman at WordPress asks us to post a nighttime photo for this weeks challenge.  I haven’t really got very many, I’m to lazy to use a tripod and I don’t take my camera out much at night. I did find this one though, taken at a Riad in Marrakech a few years ago.

Enduring Erigeron

This weeks Photo Challenge at the Daily Post is Endurance, I’ve chosen this photo because whenever I see these dainty little daisies I’m amazed at how they manage to grow and thrive against all odds. Here they are, in scorching sun, with no soil and any water that falls quickly evaporating in the heat.

But they still endure.

Humanity

Third Eye Mom is a writer and blogger from Minnesota and this is what she has to say for this weeks photo challenge.

The more I see the world, the more I realize that although people are different, we’re very much the same. We speak different languages, have different cultures, religions, values, and physical traits, yet we all share common hopes and dreams of love, family, and survival.

She’s posted some stunning portraits of people she’s met on her travels. Here are a few of mine, not portraits as such, just people being people in their world.

Can you show humanity as you see it? It would be great if you joined in,
