The deep blue of descending night against the stark white stone of the Menin Gate in Ieper, Belgium…during the daily remembrance ceremony that has been conducted every night since 1928..

My totally random take on the theme of colour…a quick scroll through the last few years of pictures…in no particular order…just colours….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

As this week’s challenge, ‘geometry‘ was very specific in what it wants “…find a good subject that contains an interesting geometry…try to crop tightly into the subject to make an unexpected composition…” Hmmmm…unexpected seems to imply ‘so that it’s actually identify is concealed’…more hmmm….OK, here goes…crops to the top, originals to the bottom…

 

…and the orginals…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

I am looking after the girls this long weekend so will bang this out before I get overrun…it’ll be all on after breakfast so some quick thoughts on ‘silhouette‘…

I was visiting the USAF Armament Museum last year when these things kept banging out of Eglin AFB next door – or maybe it was the same one doing touch and goes…

MQ-1 Predator (pointy-down tail) at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington…

This Warbird DC-3 was doing joy rides out of Taumarunui in 2010 – snapped it as it flew overhead on a circuit of the Mountain…

This isn’t a silhouette…just Lulu in the snow last year…last time we had real snow at home…call the last few months a winter?!?!
