Monday Abstraction- Take a Guess

When I was out photographing the moon day before yesterday I captured this photograph as well. It’s a bit abstract and I will tell you what it is in a future post but do you think you can take a guess at what this actually is? I’m afraid I can’t give out a prize for…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve

As the title indicates this week’s photo challenge asks us to find inspiration from curved structures- either natural or man-made. My mind immediately went back to my visit to Ajanta and Ellora Caves (in Maharashtra, India) earlier this year. The photographs below are from Cave 10 at Ellora. What is really special about these caves…

Spare: WPC

This week’s photo challenge theme is Spare. Spare is an interesting word. In the context of a landscape it can be used to refer to something that is minimalistic or bare. But it can mean so many other things- Can you spare some time? Can you spare me the nonsense? Is there a spare part…

Random Musings

Theme a la Murakami Working in my hotel room in the middle of nowhere, I was suddenly overcome by this urge to listen to Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. You know, one of those urges that you cannot resist. When that bit of music becomes an earworm that you can get out only by actually listening to…

More Kitty Pics from Turkey

Hi everyone, you may have read my post about the Cats in Turkey  (and maybe some of my older posts as well?) Today I’m uploading some more (and probably the last crop of) photographs of some of the bewitching kitties I ran into at Istanbul. Enjoy!

Plane Spotting!

Love planes? So do I. I think I’ve told you that I could spend hours watching planes land and take off. I could easily be the person who sits for hours on the runway- if only someone could pay me to do that. Anyway today I’ve got a HUGE album of plane pics- some from…
