WPC: Twisted

In this week’s photo challenge, show us something twisted. You can be literal in your interpretation — show us the coils of your hair, a winding woodland path, or a gnarled tree trunk. Or, be more abstract, and show us something that represents life’s inherently twisty character. We’re looking forward to it!

WPC: Guided Tour

The slideshow is a selection of photos that will always remind me of the time we have spent in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas of New South Wales in Australia.  Some of the photos are captioned while others speak for themselves.   This week’s challenge is to take you on a tour of where we live. …

Collage

Only the photographer can see the whole picture, like the one above for me. At first glance, it looks just like a calm body…

Focus

Photos this week are captioned either in or out of focus which is the challenge for this week’s contributors to the weekly WordPress Photo Challenge.
