This morning over at our other site Weekly Prompts, GC and I launched our first photo challenge Random, this is my own response to the challenge, but I’ve cheated and have treated it as a word-prompt and a photo-challenge combined. Please do join us.
A Random quote – “Sometimes I surprise myself with the smart things I say and do. Other times, I try to get out of the car with my seatbelt on!”
Yesterday, on the drive over to my favourite lakeside walk I made a slight detour to a small hillside at the end of the airport runway. When I began taking photographs with my camera with the long lens, the chap from the car next to mine asked if I was taking random pictures or did I have a particular reason.
Well, now I think about it, since becoming a blogger almost all my photographs are random. I see something and quick as a flash I’ve captured it.
My actual reason for being on the viewing spot was to watch my eleven year old granddaughter’s plane take off for a Barcelona school trip. Her parents had left her at the airport with her teachers at 6:00 am but were unable to stay and watch, so I did the honours instead.
My first photo choice, therefore, is anything but random!
As a dip may I recommend mixing the lemon rapeseed oil with raspberry balsamic vinegar, absolutely delicious and as a bonus rapeseed oil doesn’t separate in the way olive oil does!
On a very warm morning in May I spotted this lady walking in the grounds of Knaresborough castle. She was overly dressed for the weather and in one hand carried artist’s equipment, in the other was a pet carrier complete with cat!
Someone else slightly over-dressed for the exceptionally warm weather was this dear lady. I spotted her as I walked through the bus station and I couldn’t help thinking she wouldn’t be out of place on the set of an Agatha Christie film. Isn’t she gorgeous and with such a lovely smile.
Back in Knaresborough I found this lady sitting with her small companion.
