CBBH Photo Challenge: REPETITION

Repetition, replication, reproduction, or in this case reappearance of the same subject throughout the picture.

I’m giving you something round, used, dirty and rolling, heaped up in the backyard of a local tyre repair shop.

Have a stroll with me to a less posh part of my neighbourhood while listening to John Lennon’s “Watching the wheels”.  

This post is a response to Marianne’s  CBBH photo challenge: repetition.

This month I would like to introduce to you two special bloggers that I will never nominate for Inspiring Blogger Award (more attentive readers of my blog are familiar with my views on nominations/awards), but who are nevertheless a constant source of inspiration to me: Bashar from 2 rivers photos , and Marion from Figments of a DuTchess  .

Bashar’s way of making the most mundane subjects look glamorous never ceases to surprise me, and Marion with her love of words, and quest for beauty makes my WordPress experience so much more enjoyable.

Check them out. I’m sure you’ll find them inspiring too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: FRIENDSHIP

Once again Ms Rosso made me do something I had never done before. The weekly challenge said: “friendship” so I grabbed my camera and went for a tour of my neighbourhood.

It is the first time that I took a shot at street photography and not being looked suspiciously upon, or being scolded as a stalker, I have to admit I had fun taking these pics.

Stories of friendship from my neighbourhood park…
