Flight Path

The Photo Challenge this weekend from Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is WINGS.  

My personal offering to our photo challenge is a mixed bag of wings, both in and out of view!

During a rare break from the heavy rain last week,  I enjoyed a morning walk around the Tarn. This local lake is situated close to Leeds and Bradford Airport, Yorkshire, England. The western end of the longest runway runs just above the northern edge of the lake.

Best Thing Ever

This weekend the Photo Challenge on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is Best Buy. This is my own response to our challenge.

It’s a safe bet to assume that most of us own something that we regard as our ‘Best Buy’.

For me, the absolute best thing ever, is my home, the small farm that we purchased 43 years ago this week. 

When I leave my favourite Charity farm coffee shop after meeting up with friends, I can see my red roofed home in the centre of the distant horizon. I never fail to pause awhile, take in the view and say a quiet thank you.SONY DSC

No matter how far I travel, I always come home.

Junking

The joy of junking comes not only from a great find, but also from that moment when you figure out how to breathe new life into an old piece.” ~ Unknown.

This weekend the photo challenge from GC’s and my site Weekly Prompts is JUNK.

This is my own response to the challenge.

Each month I browse the IT magazine section in the newsagents and choose the one that appears to be the most interesting. This month I chose ‘WebUser’, mainly because of the recycling ideas.

When I’m due a mobile phone upgrade (cell phone) I normally hang on to the old one; it’s  a second browser, a spare camera, or an audio recording device.

What you do with your old equipment, do you find another use or is it simply junk?

Earlier this week, youngest daughter Sophie (pictured below) and I spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around Decoporium, an underground junk shop. The shop is situated in the Thorp Arch Retail Park, not far from Wetherby Racecourse in Yorkshire England and is approximately forty minute’s drive from my home.
