100 Words #369: Leather Chair


In our box of family photographs there are dozens and dozens of  black and white studio photographs like these of my cousin Frank, aged 6 months, perched on a leather chair, and 3 year old me with my big brother.


Every year, copies of these photographs would circulate among the aunts (always the aunts!) with carefully written messages and dates, which means all 21 of us have got copies of the same collection.

I wonder if, in fifty-three years, any of my cousin’s kids will be able to reach into Facebook and grab a copy of each other’s baby pictures?

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.

Pretty archway with a lot of points but no apparent purpose, also Doha, Qatar.

A little late to the table this week, here’s my offering for “Orange”.  This is from a few years ago when Adolf the Oranda, Dave the Sarassa, Lou the Black Moor and Fred the Shubunkin were small and young and got along together. 

Innocent me didn’t know at the time that the comet type goldfish don’t get along with the fancies, and poor Lou was murdered by either Dave or Fred. Since then Adolf has moved on, found a boyfriend (Clarke), became a mother, ate her children and divorced Clarke – as recounted in Daily Prompt: But No Cigar.  The residents of Baskerville Manor don’t need to follow a soap opera, we write our own, every day Smile
