WPC: A Narrow View

Around the Library 398@0,1x

Good morning from a very cold and frosty Hastings day.  At least it is sunny, but the temperatures are just above freezing at the moment. My heater is going and I am wrapped up with a blanket at the moment. I really am looking forward to spring.

Anyway, enough of the grumps.   has given us the prompt of finding something narrow.

This week, let’s keep things narrow (but not narrow-minded!): share a photo with your take on the theme. You could focus on a slender object, or shoot an image where your field of vision is restricted. Alleyways and half-open doors, seesaws and water slides, spaghetti and electric cords… the world is full of narrow things. I can’t wait to see which one you’ll pick for your entry.

So, first up is the narrow view through some tree trunks at the branches and skies above the tree.

Then there are these narrow vertical lines.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Bigger than life

056@0,1x

Good morning from a rather stormy Hastings day.

Just to distract me from the weather I went searching for warmer weather in my archives.  Cee’s black & white challenge is asking us for large objects.  I have lots of large trees, but there were too many to look through, and then I found this power pylon.

I know they are not a favourite among landscape photographers, but I don’t mind them – close up they have some great lines and angles.

Also, I must apologise for not really getting around to everyone’s blogs.  My browser is not loading anything that well at the moment.  I must get my son to sort it out.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tiffen Park Entrance

Napier and Otane 202@0,1x

Good morning from another unsettled day here in Hastings.  The weather forecast isn’t good so a good day to catch up with my knitting for the market on Sunday.

Last Saturday I was over in Napier for a photo shoot at this carpark under Napier Hill.  These stairs lead to a very steep and somewhat precarious path up the hill.

As you can see.  Not for the faint hearted. I just settled for looking up and admiring the view from the carpark.

Tiffen Park, Napier

Perfect for this week’s challenge.
