Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – Distance #Photography #RedArrows

Hugh chose ‘Distance’ for this weeks challenge. These photos were taken around three years ago. The Red Arrows always gave a terrific display during  Lifeboat Week at Lyme Regis up until last year. They performed free of charge as a thank you to the RNLI but when the search and rescue services changed over from the RAF to a civilian contractor the price for a display was quoted at over £12,000 and likely to rise.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Solitude #Photography

Hugh’s photo challenge this week is solitude. For me this means some alone time and that’s always an early morning walk with my dog. The photograph was taken a few years ago in a small Oxfordshire village and this was the scene for over a week. I loved those morning walks…and so did my dog. Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 – Gap #Photography

For Hugh’s challenge this week I’ve chosen this photo taken in Boston. I like the way the buildings are in the shade but through the gap between them the Marriott Custom House is bathed in sunshine. The building was Boston’s first skyscraper. Continue reading
