We’ve been on our travels again recently so I have plenty of images to choose from for this week’s challenge. For the fourth Monday in the month the challengee (a word I’ve invented to describe the person responding to the challenge) can choose the theme. As Sally has just added a new category – photomontage – I’ve decided to run with that.
This is a very simple one, with the two images blended using the Superimpose app and I reduced the opacity so that more of the flowers is revealed than the wooden texture which forms the background.

Although I have been a subscriber to Sally D’s blog for some time now, this my first entry for Sally D’s mobile photography challenge

Sometimes ones eyes need a rest from the garish colours that surround us. Pastel shades have always been restful. Here are some of my pastel photos:
pastel shades in Köln (Cologne), Germany
a Christmas rose flower (hellebore)
water lilies for sale in a temple in Myanmar
lotus blossom bud with grasshopper
Do you prefer pastels to brights? Take a look at some more here.

Are you an ailurophile or ‘phobe (in other words cat lover or cat hater/fearer)? I’ve been a cat lover all my life and my parents gave me my first cat when I was 5 years old and I’ve had one, on and off, ever since.

An entrance is always followed by an exit. This week no-one can be unaware of the unprecedented exit by the UK from the European Union, prompting Ailsa’s choice of the theme of EXIT this week.
the exit (and entrance) to the inner chamber of the great pyramid in Giza. It’s a difficult climb/descent as you have to bend nearly double and it’s a couple of hundred metres
