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.

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,
Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.
When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.
Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.
Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.
Says Frederic Biver, an architect and photographer who has created this weeks photo challenge, over at the Daily Post. He has shown some excellent examples of how to interpret this really difficult challenge. But maybe it isn’t difficult for you?
Here is my attempt. If you have these in your house,
then there’s a good chance your family will be mentioned here.
If you can demonstrate a dialogue between images go to http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/dialogue/
But can you tell what it is yet?
Well it’s my response to the weekly photo challenge and you can join in here,
A clue, a personal phobia second to spiders, answers on a post card please.
Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.
Says Cheri Lucas Rowlands. I thought of this image I took recently on the beach at Exmouth, and I quite like it.

When I think of texture I think close up and one the places I like taking close up photos is the seashore. I lovely pootling around a beach in winter hunting for treasure that has been delivered by the tide or has waited for millennia for my lens. So this weeks photo challenge was easy, simple photos from nature.
Perhaps you have some textures to share? Visit http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/texture/ to join in.
There’s no need to look very far to find zigzags, most towns and cities will have architectural features that meet this weeks photo challenge.
Apart from some natural zigzags, mine are all photos taken in Exeter Cathedral and surrounds.
I’ve always liked the style of this building opposite the cathedral
