Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

by Kevin Bould

In response to http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/photo-challenge-juxtaposition/

Not the photos I intended to post, due to issues I’m having downloading from my EOS. Really need to sort that. Nether the less, I love this photo and it fits the bill perfectly. 

koutoubia mosque

For those that don’t recognise this, the mosque is the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakesch. The photo was taken from  the magical Les Jardins de Balla. Those who have been will hopefully be able to sense the juxtaposition of not only the modern, heated pool, with the 12th Century Mosque,  but also the peace and quiet of this location, which is less than 50 meters from the incredible exuberance, carnage and chaos of Jemaa el Fna and the nearby souks.  Great food too! 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

by Kevin Bould

I was abroad this week, both figuratively and literally, hence the tardiness of m post. Family; this was a challenge that made me smile. With a baby niece, some big family events coming up and being recently engaged, there seemed lot of options. Strange then, that I chose non on them. Instead whist having a lovely time at the future in-laws a moment occured to me that summed up family, old and new. Enjoy!

Sunday Roast....Nom Nom

I was also reminded of this old photo. I cant recall how I manged to get it looking like this, but I liked, and still do like, it.

We are family

And because I can’t resist!!!

Beautiful beginnings. Baby Lily.
