WPC – Graceful

This week’s prompt had me rummaging through my holiday snaps in search of a particular picture that would provide a plausible interpretation of Graceful. Had it not been for the photo Ben posted of the the blue filtered swans, I would almost certainly have come up with my own image of the same lovely birds […]

Visiting Time

This story was inspired by the prompt, though it may be hard to see a connection. I imagined a shooting at the diner in the photo leading to the incarceration of one of the characters and the inevitable strain placed on a relationship when people are forcibly separated.

Door Dilemma

My first draft of this story yesterday came in at 368 words so I quickly abandoned it believing that there was no way I could chop it down to fit. This evening I decided to have another go and managed to shoe-horn it into the required word count. Like most pieces that start out much […]

If there is a link to this week’s title it’s in the wonky headlights of the cross-eyed car that glared at me as I struggled to record the amazing array of colours in this April sunset. On another day I might have waited to get this shot from our house, with the beautiful field and […]


The photo I chose for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge was taken in southern Spain, not far from Benidorm. I often find that by zooming in on a single aspect of an image I find something I particularly enjoy. In this case it was when zooming in on the falling water and realizing how the […]

Quest – Weekly Photo Challenge

When I saw this week’s challenge I drew a complete blank. I couldn’t think of a link to any of the pictures I had taken recently and scrolled through a lot of images before I finally admitted defeat. Then, this evening I took my youngest son to Christchurch Quay to catch some Pokémon. As we […]


This weeks photo challenge gave me the chance to use one of my favourite recent beach shots. I have played with image elsewhere using Prisma to apply some interesting filters but this is the first time I have put the original out there to be seen. I like this shot because of the perspective, taken […]
