Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Circles and curves

Bordeaux, France

I decided that sepia was better than B&W for these marvelous wine casks in a cellar at Château Desmirail in the Medoc region of Bordeaux.

We bought a bottle of the 2009 Margaux wine and brought it back to our cruise ship to have with dinner. It went perfectly with the Beef Stroganoff.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is always a fun exercise in selecting just the right photo to match the theme. The casks certainly fit ‘Circles and Curves’.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red

I have a short collection of fun photos for this challenge. The first two are from The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. Enjoy the pomp and color of the throne used by the Czars.

Also in St. Petersburg, we saw these two fun plastic statues on the floating restaurant where we had lunch:

On this same trip, we stopped in Helsinki, Finland and I had to take a photo of this fun Santa:

And finally, from the Falkland Islands, a wonderful red telephone booth:

Imagine Superman changing in this booth, or perhaps having it used by Dr. Who. Whatever you imagine, it has to be fun with this bright red color.
