Weekly Photo Challenge – Work of Art

The Daily Post Photo Challenge – This week, share a photo of something that’s art to you. It could be some actual “art,” like a painting by your grandmother or the misshapen but perfect clay sculpture your child brought home from kindergarden, or something most people wouldn’t consider beautiful at all, but that has meaning to you. The important thing is that it’s art in your eyes.

In Prague, the unusual monument to Franz Kafka


Also in Prague. I don’t know if you would call this one a monument but puppet theatre has a long history here so I thought I would include it.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Perspective

“This week’s photo challenge is about perspective: post a photo which is not what it seems to be. Make sure you share what the photo actually is of in its caption!

For those who are looking for an extra bit of challenge, show us two photos, each one showing a different angle or interpretation of the same subject”

I mis-read the challenge to start with, I thought it was for two photos showing a different angle but I missed the bit about a photo which is not what it seems so I had another look and found this ‘pattern’.


Did you guess? perspective7

I thought I would include the other photos I found first, no guesses here
