Land, sea, sky: A contribution for Thursday’s Special at Lost in Translation: Seascape.
This picture was made last year, and scanned, and then put aside. I stumbled upon it when I looked for panoramas for Paula’s Black and White Sunday – and realized (yet again) that it sometimes takes me a while to come to appreciate a picture.
Here’s what I dug up for this week’s photo challenge.
It’s probably time for a dash of colour here, and some reflections too.
The ruins of the old abbey shape the sky here… And they may contribute to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Three
One of the things that always intrugue me in towns is the juxtaposition of buildings, the (urban) space it creates.
A second perspective on this week’s photo challenge: Objects that are just there, out in the open – provided by a community, for a community…
Once I started tracking the unexpected for the Weekly Photo Challenge, I came across a couple of fairly different subjects. In this case, I’d already planned to combine the two (very different representations of femininity) but lacked a good title – the challenge took care of that. I found these statues at Les Jardins du Pays d’Auge (left) and Château de Vascoeuil (right).
Experimental, unexpected maybe (because water is always good for the unexpected): A portrait of Rue Eau de Robec (Rouen).
While it was bright and sunny in Longues-sur-Mer, visibility in Arromanches-les-Bains was poor (as BBC Weather would put it), rendering most of my pictures a harsh, almost rough black and white that reminds me of Capa’s D-Day pictures. So I pick smoother pictures here, asking myself if they might be too pretty for the subject. (Top: Arromanches; bottom: Longues)
Although I could not resist this title (the wonderful alliteration) this is really a contribution to this week’s photo challenge: My favourite horizons can be found be the sea, or at least close to water. Therefore they are occasionally upside down.
Brown hues, interpreting both the Weekly Photo Challenge and this week’s Travel Theme. The floating leaves and the elaborate hairdo were spotted at Les Jardins du Pays d’Auge, Combremer; the onions come from the famous kitchen garden of Château de Miromesnil, Tourville-sur-Arques; and the last two pictures happened during a walk in the port of Fécamp.
“The windows of the soul are infinite, we are told. And it is through the eyes of the soul that paradise is visioned. If there are flaws in your paradise, open more windows!” (Henry Miller, Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch) – This contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge shows the Colombier (dovecote) in Vendeuvre.
