Andrew, the photos are great! Wouldn't it be cool to live in those houses for a bit? Fairy tales would be 'dancing in my head". It's a wonderful photo of Isobel and her name is so lovely. The Paris Temple, thank you for those photos. They really brought a  a calming spirit.  As for the spider, my oldest son (adult) would love it - he's been into taking photographs of spiders and webs for a while now. Very Octoberish.

There were a few spiders, in huge webs. This was at a place on the Dordogne where the whole river drops about 8 feet over man made weirs. In the gaps between the mechanisms are these webs. You can see the water flowing below them. It was hard with an automatic camera to get it to focus on the spider.

As to the houses. My parents have a cottage up the hill from this town, not in that style. But the house is 300 years old. Stone floor, stone walls, slate roof. It is a lovely part of France. Isobel, and her slightly older sister Olivia (pictured below), and myself kayaked down the Dordogne from just South of here to Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne (18 km). Occasionally stopping and swimming. It was a perfect day.

The stained glass picture of Christ, in the visitors' centre at the Paris temple, is phenomenal. Jesus' eyes follows you as walk past it. I am hoping for a few days in Paris with my wife in the Spring, and we will go and use the temple that time. This was our last day in France and we had to drive back to Calais for our ferry.

For those who have not it before in French: -

Sarah-Grace is two years old. I did her portraits today. I hung a brown blanket on the back of the pickup and put a stool in front for her to sit on. The day was lightly overcast, so no shadows. I used a gold foil reflector to direct some of the afternoon sun onto her face.

Roper, your Sarah-Grace is lovely!  Are her curls natural, or did Michelle style her hair?  She looks so alert and happy!

Thank you, Pgal. Her curls are natural. They dry that way right after a bath, so we left them, instead of combing them out. I love her scrunchy smile!

Out of all the gazillion pictures I've taken over the decades, I've only taken maybe three worth sharing on a thread like this.  Here's one of them, completely accidental.  I honestly have no clue why this looks cool, or how to recreate it.  I took it with my iPhone.  I call it "lunch"

You're right, NT. It's a cool picture. Here's why:  The circle of the plate forms a kind of bullseye which draws the observer's eye toward the middle, where the subject is. The bullseye is surrounded by a vignette--a slightly darkening circle toward the edges, further emphasizing the subject. The three items on the plate all have strong straight edges, which contrast with the circle of the plate. They are arranged around the triangle shape in the center of the plate, carrying a harmony of placement. The colors are all adjacent on the color wheel--orange, yellow, and green. There is nothing to distract in the black plate or the gray background. Finally, it's fairly minimalist.  You recognized the elements of good composition, even if it wasn't intentional. Now, where's the cup of ranch dressing to dip everything in?  ;D

My photo challenge for this week is, "Abandoned." A lot of people who participate in the challenges are taking photos of abandoned buildings and cars. Here's my interpretation:

I am not a great viewer of art. I don't get how people interpret what others have draw, painted or photographed, it's just not my thing. But that picture is heartbreaking. I think you have hit that nail on the head.
