The topic for this weeks bird weekly photo challenge is birds in monochrome or sepia so I have both the monochrome photograph and the same one in colour to compare the way that they look.
This week on Cee’s midweek madness challenge our inspiration is taken from the photograph that is posted on Cee’s blog. Some of her suggestions for this month are city, landscape, downtown, clouds, blue, sky, street light, red, green, street sign, road, railroad, tree, etc. Below are just some of my photographs inspired by Cees photograph.
Nancy has asked us to post our pictures for scenery and here are some of my favourites.
Isle of man – Douglas Harbour
Leeds – Liverpool Canal

As we continue with Kates Friday photo hunt Kate is giving was two words and asking us to post photographs for either one or both of the words. This weeks words are sunset and sunrise. Looking back through my photographs it has made me realise that I seem to prefer the sunrise to the sunset.
The topic for this weeks bird weekly photo challenge is birds that primarily eat fish. I don’t really have a lot a photographs of birds that eat fish but here are some although some eat other things as well as fish.

This week in Cee’s black and white photo challenge Cee is asking us to look for pairs. Some of my photographs you will have seen before since we are still in lock down but there are a few new ones as well.
Pair of ducks
Pair of seagull chicks
Pair of bear statues
Pair of alpacas
Pair of dandelions
Pair of water bottles
Pair of crochet heart keyrings
Pair of walking boots
Mama Cormier has a photo challenge in which she asks us to look for photographs showing a trio of objects. This is my first attempt at Thursday trios and have quite enjoyed it.
The first photograph is of a trio of yarn just sat ready and waiting for me to attempt to crochet a hexagon cardigan.
The second photograph is a cluster of three stitches (I know it is a little bit more difficult to see with the colour) being used to make the cardigan.
The third trio is a trio of bands from the used balls of yarn.
Now we are getting to the sewing up stage I have 3 clip ready to hold the pieces together as they are connected.
As we continue with Kates Friday photo hunt Kate is giving was two words and asking us to post photographs for either one or both of the words. This weeks words are signs of spring or signs of autumn.
Favourite signs of spring
This first photograph was taken on a recent lockdown walk in the park with Mr H and Charlie dog.
I love to see the snowdrops in the park as I always think that they are the first signs of the end of winter and start of spring.
Some of my other favourite signs that spring is definitely on its way thanks to Mother nature. The crocus flowers just starting to show ready to burst into bloom and the daffodils bright and yellow make it feel so cheery.
Favourite signs of Autumn
The falling leaves starting to appear on the ground showing us that Autumn is on its way.
Then as we continue through autumn the bare branches that we once full of colour and life.
