Monochrome madness 2-34

As some may have noticed I’ve been taking a bit of a break from regular blogging to do a few other things, but I’m still here.

Please visit Leanne Cole for all the great submissions to this weekly event.

Ring of Kerry

my nephew recently showed me the joy of bungee jumping-crazy kid! I’m not keen on plummeting through space but he wants to be a pilot in the Yukon.

Here is my joy- a morning walk and song  in Peachland  in the Okanagan

    Fab photos, Cybele. Really love the surrealism in the way you’ve done the bungee jumper – as if he’s reaching for the moon that is your logo. Great imagination.

    Cybele, the Ring of Kerry landscape is very beautiful, striking too – but I absolutely love your final image here – absolutely wonderful and lyrical, like looking into a dream. Adrian

    I could sit and watch those clouds for sometime Hannah ! What an adventurous nephew 😀 good for him though … not for either .
    There’s delightful magic in your last picture …. enjoy doing other things … our attention is needed in so many ways , blogging has to just be there in the background sometimes I find .
