Waiting till the Cows come Home

 

Cows in Ireland

Cows in Ireland

There are so many different breeds of cows, black, white, brown and a combination of all these colours.   I particularly like the spotted cows below, a special breed found in Zimbabwe and South Africa called the Nguni.

This week Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge is to show leading lines.   These photos were mainly taken in  Italy last year, and the ones taken in Venice naturally  involve water and canals.   I hope you like my choices.

Playing Around with my Photos

In photography,  Aspect Ratio is something that I had vaguely heard of, never used much, (except maybe by accident when editing photos –  but I admired the look of it in other photographers’ work.    Now thanks to a great post by Luvo Photography – What is Aspect Ratio and How to Use it – I picked a few of my sunny September photos and played around with them – hope you like the result.

The Robin and the Eagle

The Robin and the Eagle

I think this little robin was  quite pleased with himself as he perched triumphantly on top of the Eagle!  He had the advantage of being able to take flight at the first sign of danger, but stayed long enough for me to catch a quick photo.

Chapel of St.George

These stained glass windows in Chichester Cathedral may have different pictures in each one, but apart from that they are similar in every way, in fact doubles!

When I visited my local garden centre, the two brothers above were waiting  to greet me at the door, they are very cute, and for the next month I am sure we will see plenty of the Snowman family in various places.

 

 

Photo 101 : Day 18 – Edge

You have so many choices!

My photo today is an evening shot taken in the centre of Westport, County Mayo – it gives me the edge, with a lot of options for nice places to visit.

The next photo of one of the places mentioned on the sign post – Croagh Patrick – the mountain that overlooks Westport, and which you can see from most parts of the town – I think it also fits the challenge of having the edge!
