Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal and Wood

This week’s topic is Metal and Wood.  Any photo that has both metal and wood in it. It can be a table that is made from both wood and metal or a photo of something metal and trees or logs prominent in the photo as well.  Both items need to be represented somehow.   Be creative.   Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything new you can photograph.

This is the ancestral house where my father-in-law grew up, in a small village in North Kerala. The wooden windows and the metal sheets outside. Last week there had been a religious function and all the family and extended family had gathered. These metal sheets on the ground as a low wall and as a roof had been erected for this reason, and for shade too.

Fun foto challenge

 

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
