bunker_b&w_analog

 

According to the Learner’s Dictionary STRONGHOLD is:
: an area where most people have the same beliefs, values, etc.: an area dominated by a particular group
The area/district/state is a Republican stronghold.
: a protected place where the members of a military group stay and can defend themselves against attacks
The rebels retreated to their mountain stronghold.
: an area where a particular type of uncommon animal can still be found
The last stronghold of the endangered deer

 

 

This Sunday show me your capture that fits the definition of a stronghold. Make it look black & white.

Thursday’s Special: Opposites

Opposites attract, but the like-minded last.
The world is full of opposites… show me the ones that you’ve noticed, and if you are in the mood share your favourite “opposite” quote.

Black & White Sunday: Mirror Image

fusine_monochrome_potpis_zoomed in

This Sunday you are invited to post a mirror image for Black and White photo challenge. I chose a landscape photo for this occasion, but you can do as my friend  Lignum Draco did and post a photo of a human reflection, or landscape with a human figure in it, or you will, as I hope, come up with something entirely different.

Whatever you have to offer for this challenge, make sure to link to this post and I’ll be happy to display it bellow.

P.S. Next Sunday there won’t be a challenge here, and the same goes for the forthcoming Thursday because I will be away in Portugal. See you again on 20 May. For the list of further themes, challenges and guest posts please see the Scheduled Challenges page.

Changing Seasons 05

For the fifth month in a row I have the pleasure of participating in the photo challenge run by Cardinal Guzman. He suggested we should go to the same location every month this year and capture all the seasonal changes. When I agreed to participate I had no idea how much I would enjoy going to this park over and over again. I give you Maksimir – Zagreb – TAKE 5.
