Wicker deer made me smile.. Post in response to the The Daily Post challenge “Optimistic”
This weeks Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is to find our muse. Although I love nature, countryside, flowers and macros. I think the most reoccurring theme in my photos is to find patterns and shapes in nature. Its the first thing I see , its the one aspect of my photography that I really feel comfortable with.
This week’s challenge is “twinkle”. See the other posts at The Daily Post
“As visual creatures, we are drawn to light. For thousands of years, we’ve gathered around fires in the darkness, soothed by the glow of embers, and warmed by the dance of the flames. We revel in the sunshine of summertime. The sparkle of gemstones or moonlight on water inspires us to poetry. The ceremonial use of light has been practised for centuries, by many religions and for many different kinds of celebrations. We love the light.”
This a “thumbstick”. A country walking stick made from a natural fork in a straight stick. Normally made from Hazel. I am lucky enough to live in a village where these sticks are made by local craftsmen. It was leaning up against my front wall when I noticed the angular shape it made with its shadow.
This photo is for the Weekly Photo Challenge, which is “Angular”
The cathedral in Milan is an amazing landmark for the city. Luckily they allow visitors to climb up to the roof, allowing some very different viewpoints. The skill of the builders and stonemasons is breath taking.
I found this theme a difficult one, but this photo combines lots of elements that make me very happy. Firstly it was taken in Paris, my most favourite city in the world, the place where my creative dreams take me. Next the flowers, I love flowers, I love the sheer sensuality of them, colours, smells, touch, so this stall in Paris may not be “bliss” but its pretty special to me.
