K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Once more into a new week, my friends, starting off with another edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week curated by K’lee.

He chose to invert the previous challenge and go for; Exteriors.

Well, I’ve chosen a variety of external shots with a loose theme of stone buildings, see what you think.

K’lee’s photos can be seen by using this link to his post; HERE.

Now let’s see what you found outside at the weekend.

*****
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

image

Yes, I’m afraid it’s Monday again, but look on the bright side; Monday means it’s time for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today brought to you by the prompt, Architecture.

I was very gratified to see there was already a post waiting for me when I woke up this morning, and from a new participant, too! (You can check out Marie’s entry here.)
So I thought I’d make sure mine was posted early, giving you plenty of time to find inspiration.

You should know by now that I often like to go the abstract route with my challenge, this week’s being no exception.
I decided to go for an industrial look today, using this original photo of the skylights in the roof at work, taken at six this morning…

…and mucking about with it, until I arrived at this selection of strangely organic constructions;

K’lee’s photo is HERE and after you’ve been over to check it out, let’s see what you have to offer…

Cosmic Photo prompt…

image

Time for your weekly prompt, to inspire you to participate in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chosen by me and featuring a subject that I have already had fun with in the past; Architecture.

Whatever creative spin you care to put on the theme of buildings, doorways, roofs, chimneys, in fact anything related to architectural features, that’s the order of the day for Monday’s post.

So get out your cameras and go and find something to capture, in the name of turning photography into art.

More architecture of the imagination…

Never let it be said that, once I’m inspired, I don’t wring the very last drops out of a idea.
Bearing that in mind, here is a second helping of pictures from the twisted construction site of my imagination.

Once again, all the images started life as photos that have previously appeared on the blog in a more conventional form.
The first batch garnered some pretty favourable reviews, so I hope you enjoy this return to the gravity-defying, mind-bending world of impossible buildings, from a church of the poisoned mind to a contorted condominium and a bridge to nowhere…

Picture this. A break in Somerset…

Having taken a break from work for a few days, I thought I’d get away and visit somewhere I’d not really been before, the area round Bristol in Somerset.

I stayed on a very peaceful holiday park in Clevedon, complete with fishing lake to stroll around and a total lack of screaming children for company.

image

As is my habit when I’m away, I went on a couple of excursions to take photos, first visiting the seaside town of Clevedon itself, with the “only fully intact, grade one listed pier in England”, built in 1869 and still in immaculate condition.

image

image

A walk along the pier offers beautiful views of the Bristol channel, the entry toll house is imposing in its grandeur and the very structure of the elegant pier itself provides a wonderful counterpoint to the dusky sky when the lamps are lit in the evening…

image

image

image

…and I saw this lovely tiled Victorian water fountain on the wall opposite the entrance.

image

Another place I took a look at was the Lake Grounds in Portishead which, all in all, has a very pleasant, very English summer holiday feel to the area. Ducks and swans on the boating lake, blustery wind in my face and striking red rock formations, reminding me of the ploughed red earth of the Devon countryside.

image

image

image

image

Further up the coast I discovered the Windmill Inn, a pub with not only a good selection of ciders, but gorgeous views from the terraced gardens of the Welsh coast and the rapidly scudding clouds and choppy waters of the Bristol channel.

image

After a relaxing drink and a leisurely drive back towards my temporary home from home, I couldn’t resist stopping off at the particularly photogenic Church of All Saints in the Parish of East Clevedon, nestling in the lee of a wooded valley and looking like something trapped forever in the permanent dappled glow of an English summer afternoon.

image

image

image

image

image

image

I carefully picked my way among the headstones…

image

…until I came upon a resident who didn’t look like they appreciated my trespassing on their sunbathing spot..

image

So I took this as my cue to leave for home, taking one last look as I walked back to the car…

image

…and arriving in time to snap yet another glorious sunset over my holiday retreat.

image

Thanks for joining me on my tour of this tiny corner of Somerset, I hope you enjoyed it.
I’ll leave you with a rather appropriate musical sign-off

Until next time…
