Hi there! and Welcome to our Photographic Monthly Meet-Up, held on the first Tuesday of each month. The prompt for this month is FLAKE.
A favourite terracotta vessel I painted a few years ago is flaking nicely
The next 4 photos were taken of flaking paint on beach huts at Church Ope Cove on Portland
I would love to be able to do a colour analysis of this photos – to me they would all make wonderful colour palettes for a crochet blanket, or a knitted Fairisle jumper.
If you know of a free website or app that would pick out the colours for me I’d love to have the link.
The next two photos were taken on the island of La Gomera in January 2008
Nearly good enough as a piece of art to hang on the wall:
Last week I went for a visit to Tyneham and Worbarrow with my daughter and her children – one of our favourite destinations for a summer’s day.
The children are fascinated by the ruined buildings and the old school room
The door to the School and its window fit the theme
Then on to the barn where there is an old theatre, with flaking scenery paint on the barn wall
Click on any picture to see it in more detail.
I have gone for flaking paint but I’m looking forward to seeing where the prompt has taken you.
All entries are welcome, both archive and current, just leave a link in the comments below any time up until next month’s prompt kicks in.

I’ve had a lovely time this month noticing how the sunlight catches and enhances things.
Morning on the farm with Ivor the bull and his companions
Morning sunshine, and looking up at buzzards soaring
an experiment under the apple tree
the bliss of bluebell woods
backlit Harts Tongue ferns
a soft goodnight

Do you know what this flower is?
Hi everyone – here we are for our Monthly Meet-Up Photo Gathering.
The theme this month is FLOWER.
Years ago I used to do the Telegraph Cryptic Crossword each day and if ‘flower’ was in a clue it could mean ‘river’ – so just to be cryptic
this photo of a river in full spate, taken in March in the quite wonderfully bizarre Doreen’s Garden in Branscombe in Devon
To join in please leave a link in the comments to one of your new or archive photos or blog posts, it will be lovely to see your FLOWERS or indeed rivers!
Joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day
HAPPY MAY DAY!
Here we are again. Helloooooo! How has your photographic month been? I’ve had a great time in the recent snow and ice, in the delightful village of Branscombe, Devon. I stayed in a little self-catering flat, called Nestlecombe, in the Square that I have no hesitation in recommending.
In the bitter cold wind I went down to the beach to see if I could get some inspiration for our subject this month. I do love to see stone-balancing, and you can see some beautiful examples if you look at the Genteel Giant’s photographs on Instagram. My sisters met him on Newgale beach when we were staying there in January, I was back at the holiday let crocheting at the time, so didn’t get to see him, but love his work.
It was far too windy to try stone balancing but I played around with scale a bit.
The sea was scarily fierce and with the tide coming in, it nearly caught me out whilst I was picking up the plastics on the strand line (hence the poem)
I tried in vain to catch the power and the scale – the pictures look tame in comparison with the experience.
We are such tiny creatures who do well to respect nature’s power
death is only a trip away
Please leave a link to your photos of SCALE in the comments below. Can’t wait to see them!
You can see the whole year of subjects on my Photo Challenge Page.
