weekly photo challenge : near and far

I thought I’d try for a few different takes on this week’s challenge. The first photo is an old one that my son and his friends set up when they hauled a broken mannequin all around the city taking photos.

It seems almost anywhere you travel in the world you can see the familiar McDonald’s sign!

  1. Guy-Man is on his way back to the top.


  2. Nice perspective photos! Love the view of Taos over your friend’s shoulder. Before reading the last sentence in your post I thought, “Is that a Mickey D’s sign in Turkey?!?”


    1. Thanks. In Eastern Turkey it was really seeing that sign. We did not visit. No billboard blitz is going to make me!


  3. Some very interesting shots here – like the grid and the table centrepiece paticularly. And you’re right, those ubiquitous golden arches … EVERYwhere.


    1. Thank you. I wanted to thank you also for posting the photo from St-Malo. I was there with my family many years ago and remember vividly walking the ramparts.


      1. I’m glad I triggered a memory for you πŸ™‚


  4. Love the perspective in the second πŸ™‚


    1. I like that a rusty stair grate can look so good! There’s beauty everywhere if you stop to look. Thanks for the comment.


  5. I like your pictures,the one I like most is the centre piece in the wedding you attended,with the blurred pictures of the women.
    Terri,how do you come up with so many varieties of blogs.To me it seems like a 9 to 5 job!
    Take care.I would love to see your next post.


    1. I stick with the photo challenge for one post a week, and because I love to create, print, cook etc. there always seems to be something I can share. Sometimes I’m a bit stuck for “what’s next?” but I like meeting my personal challenge of 3 posts per week. Thanks for your comment – makes me feel good.
