Prompts are a great way of getting you to think about your snapshots. You must find a connection and can't just post beach picture 15. (Not that I took many pictures of beaches this time, though there are still too many doors & doorknockers on my hard drive.)

Exposé really got me thinking.
I could have gone the real estate route - showcasing a particular place which is now mostly in ruins, but used to be a very desirable residence a long, long time ago, but I know that this is not quite what [ profile] comava had in mind.

The kid took this - my contribution is minor tinkering to attempt a more level horizon & some slight cropping.

I'm very busy with school and when I look at this picture I'm indeed "thinking sadly about something that you would like to have, especially something in the past that you can no longer have" - as this definition says.

A link to the BBC Yearbook from 1930 has put all my other online activities on hold.

With the absence of prompts I've had to find my own topic on which to do a Portugal Picture Post. I've decided to go with something that is very popular on the internet.

Lots of cats and a dog )

Prompts? Please?

That last post wasn't as vibrant as I hoped.

In hindsight, the evening setting makes it look rather sombre.

Let's try again - this time with colours!

This is Lantana camara, which is a popular ornamental plant in Germany, especially because the flowers change colour during the summer. I was surprised to see them grown as hedges or as shrubs in the wild, but Wikipedia informs me that it is an invasive species in many warmer countries.

Even though I wasn't happy with how I answered that prompt, I wouldn't mind getting more from you!

Your prompts are challenging me to think about my pictures - and they mean you don't get the usual collection of day-by-day picture spam.

So, [ profile] comava gave me 'vibrant' - an adjective often used about cities, colours or sounds. Sounds don't photograph well and as to colours, the flower post took care of that, so it had to be a city picture from Lagos, Portugal.

(In case you're wondering, that Nigerian city was - probably - named after the place in Portugal and yes, the slave trade is something that is slowly being addressed in Lagos.)

This is one of Lagos' many squares and the one with the best street entertainers. Last year, we saw giant soap bubbles there.

This guy was pretty good amd I may post more pictures but they need a little work to make them presentable.
