Weekly Photo Challenge – Culture

We experienced a whole different culture when we went to a wedding in Senegal last year. This is the guests dancing after the ceremony which took place in a marquee on the roof

Weekly Photo Challenge – Colour

Lovely challenge this one. My favourite colours are greens and blues but, looking through my collections, I decided that shades of pink and purple would be interesting! I hope you enjoy this selection taken over the last year at home and away.  Click on any one for an enlargement.

Portreath, Mosaic Lion, Senegalese Wedding Outfit

1   Portreath this morning was very fresh! The waves were reasonably big and I almost caught them in their high splashes.

2  In the field belonging to Portreath Primary School, we spotted the enormous mosaic Lion made especially for the children by our neighbour sculptors. This was built in the front garden next door and we watched in delight and awe as it grew. Those lucky children!

3   I cannot bring myself to put my dress for Daniel and Ami’s Wedding inside the wardrobe! It smells of Senegal, it rustles as the beautiful women in Senegal rustle and it reminds me of the whole experience! Lucy has sent us some of her photos of the Wedding – I’m always behind the camera so am missing from most of our albums.

Garden Lunch, Wedding Etiquette and Kitchen Art

1   Such a beautiful warm day today, we had our lunch (home-made Guacamole and Melba toasts)  on the bench in the sun for the first time this year. Did some vertical gardening putting primroses into the Cornish wall near the new sun terrace.

2   Had a happy half hour with Daniel on Skype learning more about the quite complicated etiquette of a Senegalese Wedding.

3   I love this egg storage unit which to me is a piece of kitchen art. I think it is a Welsh spoon holder but it keeps our eggs perfectly!
