one word photo challenge: cat
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.

travels in 2015
Just in case you thought I’d dropped off the planet, I’ve been busy traveling but had time to put together this short collection of some of my photos from this year
I’ve opted to share some vivid colours for this week’s DP challenge. The most vivid colours I’ve seen in my life were in Rajasthan. There we saw colours that I could never even imagine existed and that I’ve certainly never seen in our cooler European climes.

Both of these rooms were in the painted haveli hotel we stayed in, in Mandawa. Unfortunately our humble room was nothing like as resplendent as these two!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: churches or any religious building

Guzelyurt, Cappadocia, a Christian church converted to a mosque
a hilltop church near Guzelyurt, Cappadocia
the cathedral in Famagusta has now been converted into a mosque
the interior – to our eyes, it looks bare. Gone are the stained glass windows replaced by plain glass with geometric designs and the pews have been replaced with carpets
