Odd Blog Job


Week 9

9th February 2012


Ocean View

  1. What are your 3 Favorites photographs?  Explain why they are your favorite.
  2. If you are not a photographer, think of three favorite scenes in your life and tell us about them.

Key West, Nr Orlando

This is my number 1, waiting for a bus and this was the view that confronted us, while sitting at the bus stop. Beautiful colours and composition.

Gorgeous creature.

My number 2, this gorgeous creature, and his eyes are just bright and alert, I had cropped a little from the right, purely ‘cos it had the date stamp and ruined this particular photo.

Cheddar Gorge

My number 3 is this rock formation in Cheddar, Somerset, UK. At certain angles, this is one, it can be seen to have a similarity to a lions head. Hence it’s name. Although my angle it has a human look.

I have to many to actually pick three favorites, but these three are amongst my favorites. The first one is my number one above all others.

I am not a photographer, but do enjoy taking photo’s and like many other people always looking for that exceptional capture. I do have many photos on my hard drive and regularly adding more and therefore generally trying to be a little better than a snapper. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

1. Favorite view is from hotel window looking across the car park and seeing Sea World, Orlando.

2. Another is a view standing on top of a hill (Bench Hill, Lyndhurst. New Forest.) and enjoying the open moorland, the ponies, and in the summer a local cricket team playing.

3.During my child hood, a few friends and myself would visit the local wooden village bridge and in the summer we would play guitars and have sing songs. Quite an attraction with holiday makers.


Week 8


30th Jan 2012                                             

My Answers    

  1. What is one of your quirky traits?
  2. If you could be given ANY gift what would it be?
  3. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
  4. If you could play any sport professionally what would it be?

1-Quirky traits – Love to cook, experimenting and adding all sorts of flavorings, I just have to do.

2-Any gift – As I have asthma and restrictions and now diagnosed as diabetic, good health like many others.

3-Chores I hate – I love cooking but it is washing up afterwards.

4-Sport –  It would have to be ‘Tennis’ I was fairly good at school. Oh I quite enjoyed it as well.

  1. I think there are many of us that would take good health as a gift – especially those of us who are getting to the age where health can become an issue. I wish you luck with yours.

  2. Ah, I enjoy cooking & experimenting, as well. Not fond of cleaning afterward, either. Yes, my daughter and I enjoy tennis very much, and we took lessons together a couple of years back. Love to play the game. 😉

    • Thank you greatly for visit and comments, it is great to hear your similarities, I could not play tennis today, age and health is against me, but still enjoy watching.

  3. Love the picture of the tiger??? in the challenge above – couldn’t work out how to make a comment on it.

  4. Cant find a comment box on the week nine post, so I’ll just say here, fantastic photo of the white tiger, and I can see both the lions head and the human head.

    If I could cook, well, maybe my quirky trait is I can’t. I’m very uninventive.
