Weekly Photo Challenge: All time favourites

It seems the organisers of the Weekly Photo Challenge on WordPress are stopping…they have asked us for our All-Time Favorites (click on the link for other interpretations)

Here are a few of mine:

The smartphone generation intrigues me, I have taken many photos of people using their smartphones like:

Please Die
Please Die
no smartphone, no
No smartphone, no comment

I also love the sea, unfortunately the sea is on the other side of Georgia.

and I like taking photos of my diecast model car collection outside

This week my favourite photo was of a pair of laughing doves making a nest. The male fetches the material and the female arranges them into a nest.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

This week’s photo challenge is Twisted (click on the link for other interpretations).


Here is the picture I took today of the twisted Axis Towers in Tbilisi. These skyscrapers at 147m are the highest buildings in Tbilisi (though not in Georgia as Batumi on the Black Sea Coast has higher buildings).

The towers twist in opposite directions, creating an illusion of a moving building.

The towers are similar and yet different at the same time. One is glazed with dark glass and the other features natural white stone cladding.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

This week’s photo challenge is a bit odd Place in the World (click link for other interpretations).

The challenge asks: “Where do you belong? In the hustle and bustle of a big city or amongst friendly faces in a small town? For this week’s challenge, show us your place in the world. ”

with family and friends in our new flat (my place in the world?)

I don’t feel I belong anywhere in particular. I live in Tbilisi now, but I have lived in other cities: London, Sydney, Worcester; towns : Slough, Aberystwyth, Meaux, Trilport and even villages: Llanfihangel-nant-Bran, Speluncato, Llangammarch Wells, Doddington. I don’t feel one geographical location is home although I miss the sea. If money were no object and I could live anywhere, I think I’d return to Corsica but that isn’t likely to happen, so I shall try my best to be content where I am.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

This week’s challenge is Prolific, when I think of prolific, I think of a writer like Stephen King producing tome after tome. Prolific can also means highly fruitful.

I have just finished reading a crime novel by the prolific writer Ian Rankin, The Black Book is the fifth Inspector Rebus novel in a series of 21 books.
