Photo-a-Week Challenge


Week 48 – A4. Photographer’s choice


My beloved Broughty Ferry Castle which holds many memories for me.

I played on the beach around and beneath it – fabulous rock pools. I watched people fishing from the pier. I learned to swim in the harbour there. There were scary high waves which crashed against the walls on a stormy day. The park is nearby and we had talent shows there every week. We swam on the safe beach nearby. Mum would provide me with a packet of crisps and a drink as a “shivery bite” and yes, the water was very cold. We collected shells and drew in the sand, built sand castles, buried each other in the sand! I had a very blessed childhood with lots of freedom and places to play.



Week 1 – 23. Orton Effect


I thought the subject and colours lent themselves well to the Orton Effect.

This image was made at Bourne Hall in Epsom in Surrey.

Glad to be up and running. Looking forward to enjoying the year with my fellow bloggers. Good luck to everyone and have lots of fun.
