Thank you Cee for making me really have a good think about this challenge. The letter W has many possibilities but the letter X!!!!
I though of the many window photos I have so it was hard to cut them down to just a few. These are from my travels in Italy.
I love the old window shutters.
Windows with window sills filled with flowers are lovely.
Some window just have one container of flowers
Now for the letter X. How many of you used to get a torch and do an X-ray of your fingers when you were kids?

Cee’s Photo Challenge using the letters U or V. We are getting closer to the end of the alphabet and these letters really had me thinking.

Every seagull needs an Umbrella on a hot Australian day at the beach
What Vehicle would be the most appropriate for the letter V!!! Only a VW would do. This is my besties sons which one day will be resuscitated.
The Water Vine is huge as it uses itself to climb higher through the trees in the rainforest
The Daily Post photo challenge made me think of the photos I have with reflections. The ones that I chose were from the hours spent in La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The whole structure is so amazing. The outside with its many carvings and intricate designs but once inside the amazement turns to wonderment. The light through the myriad of stained glass windows is breathtaking.
The light reflects on every surface lighting the Sagrada with dancing colours.
This a small selection of what I saw.
The floor – a cool blue
The floor – a fiery red
Odd Balls. Those photos that are the ones you in someway like but not too sure where they fit in your photo galleries. I have lots of Odd Balls and so do other photographers. Have a look at the other Odd Balls
I love rust. Its colours and textures. I don’t know what this old piece of machinery was used for, perhaps moved things from the boats to the works on the headland. I found it in South Australia.
The creativity in making this seat is wonderful. It is on a friends property in South Australia too.
Can you guess what this photo is? I took this photo of a pool on my property with a Water Strider on the surface. Its feet aren’t really that big as the shadow shows.
Isolated Subjects is the theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
The cemetery at Clunes New South Wales has a nice outlook
During a flood, many items get isolated.

I did have to look for rain photos but why can’t I find any. I am sure there must be some somewhere. Oh well for 52 Week Photo Challenge I found these.
