Weekly Photo Challenge Review: Endurance – Standing stones, Orkney (September 2014)

Reviewing some of my favourite photos from the former Daily Post Photo Challenge.

I really enjoyed my trip to Orkney and plan to visit again in the near future. A recent trip to Stonehenge brought back memories of the standing stones I encountered in Orkney.

Endurance

A stone has been carved out of the earth and now stands before us.
Lasting the distance.
Standing firm.
Reaching the end point, here
despite setbacks.

Standing stones inspire wonder,
I wonder why?
But the stone is silent
or is it?

A permanent reminder of what has gone before
but the records have been lost.
A neolithic art installation ?
Enduring much much longer
than the artist could have imagined…

Lasting the distance,
standing firm.
Reaching the end point, here
despite setbacks.
A stone has been carved out of the earth and now stands before us.

Weekly photo challenge Review: Rule of Thirds (February 2015)

Reviewing some of my favourite photos from the former Daily Post Photo Challenge. Remembering a mini family day out with my twin sisters and niece who was very scared of the moving dinosaur (very funny!).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Following a recent trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park a review of some of my photographs prompted questions of scale amongst friends, interest in a park most were unfamilar with, and plans for a return visit for myself. As you can imagine I took many pictures and have limited myself here to just two of the sculptures (Network By Thomas J Price and Caldera by Tony Cragg)  I really enjoyed viewing.
