Photo-a-Week Challenge


Week 29 -40. The good old days


This a drinking fountain situated at Robin Hood Gate at Richmond Park. We went for a walk with our U3A Walking Group this week. I was struck about the amount of detail they had added to this drinking fountain. It reminded me of days gone by when there were such things. From Robin Hood Gate to Petersham Gate where we ended our walk was approximately 4 miles so it was a good workout. We saw deer and squirrels and birds. Cyclists, runners and walkers all use the tracks. We had a coffee on the way round so it was very civilised. Richmond Park, Wimbledon Common and the local river, the Hogsmill have provided us with interesting walks within easy bus-ride-reach from where we all live.


Week 28 – 48. Topless


These three bottles were purchased as a prop for future photographic projects. While I was thinking about how to use them, this theme came to mind so here it is. One bottle is “topless”.

Lots of new techniques to explore – bubbles, lighting, home studio, with liquid or without, flower vases, refraction. They will entertain and aid learning and discovering I am sure!





Week 27 -6. Beam(s)Light


This is another night shot taken on our birthday. It is car light trails from the Embankment bridge overlooking Thames Embankment at the Underground Station. First one again. I waited through traffic light changes and managed to get red and black and cycle trails I think. Yes I can see some other trips coming on. I wonder how late the Wheel operates………………….. and what about a roundabout or a nice long curved bend…………and…………

Lovely memories to keep me going throughout the year.
