Thursday’s Special – Illusion

It is a rainy day here due to Cyclone Debbie, luckily I am on the edge and only have rain and not the destructive winds so far.

Inspired by Paula’s Thursday’s Special Challenge Illusions, I grabbed my camera, changed some settings and took the following photos, two from the verandah and the other my hallway.

The shed which used to be my daughters play house I built year ago.

Thursdays Special – Winding

Winding…..the theme for Paula’s Thursday Special

I immediately thought of the main idea within the challenge which in part mentions spiral stairs in a quote from Yeats.

The well worn stairs in the lighthouse at Cape Otway in Victoria Australia

The stairs in the apartment building we stayed in in Paris. Seven flights made sure you remembered everything before adventuring in Paris.

But also the winding that most photographers do with their tripods

and in the case of my old wine press, lots of winding to extract the lovely juices

But best of all was the many stairs we climbed to see the wonderful fall of the lights in the Grand Hyatt in South Korea – “….we measure our progress by the number of places where we were but no longer are…”

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD IN FEBRUARY – Y2

I decided to have a go at participating in the Pick a Word challenge in February.

These photos are from my previous blogs that I written over the years as I wanted to be part of something that I have never done before. The inspiration came from Yvette at https://priorhouse.wordpress.com/
