ExploreTheElements

Whilst looking around the interweb thingie, I came across this from Thomas Cook.

I’ve got some lovely water based photos (if I do say so myself) so I thought I’d enter. Here are some of my personal favourites.

The first photos is in the Caribbean sea, where we came across a fishing boat, with a couple of smaller boats tethered to it.

Next up are some photos of the Thames in London. I love the slow shutter effect on running water.

And finally the classic angel hair waterfall, taken in Regents Park.

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.

Week 2: Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

by Kevin Bould

I really enjoyed last weeks challenge. The posts from Peter and Lynz made me smile a lot.

Peter’s post was a blast from the past.

My sisters post was of her lovely new baby, my niece, the beautiful Lily.

Beautiful beginnings. Baby Lily.

 This weeks challenge is windows.

Windows are everywhere. Depending on where you are — your bedroom, your office, a hotel room, or a tiny tourism office overlooking a lively street in a beach town in the Dominican Republic, shown above — a window can reveal different things.

They are portals into the world’s stories. Glimpses into other people’s lives. Looking out (or into) a window can tell you about where you are — and where you’re not — and mark a particular moment in time, linking you to a physical place. Windows are also enablers of our daydreams and desires, and can stir up memories and big ideas.”
