Congratulations on the very original banner photo - I wonder if the lady knows how famous she has become. And thank you Belita for hosting this week with an interesting theme. Immediately began to have a smashing time at home :-)
Our cat Nera, may she rest in peace in the eternal corn chambers chasing mice, once broke her leg. She had a few mad moments with her play center which fell onto her paw. It knitted together again, but she lost two claws and had to wear a plaster for a few weeks. However, that was nothing for a cat, she still managed to jump and escape now and again, although she was not supposed to go out - that was Nera.
Since not being as active with the camera as I would like to be, I compensate by taking photos from the car, although now and again I do take a walk with the camera. Anyhow, on the way to the supermarket last week we passed an accident. Two cars were involved in a frontal crash because the driver of this car had lost the control over her car. Everyone survived, although this lady was seriously injured, the other not so bad. I felt like a newspaper reporter and this car was definitely broken.
This sweet pea pod had broken open to release the seeds. They grow everywhere in my garden in summer.
The ground had been broken on the local parking at the supermarket, so I had plenty of opportunities to take a few photos.
Many thanks to Belita for hosting this week. A very interesting theme, and one I don't think we've done before. I thought I would have lots of photos for this theme, but I really had to search hard through my archive for some I could use!!
1) This tree, near the Sunset Volcano Crater, Arizona had been damaged and broken by a lightning strike.
2) The damaged remains of what was once one of the most popular hotels in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales.
3) This sign is not only damaged by the weather, but also by a car driving into it!!
4) Broken window at Batsto Industrial Village, New Jersey.
Hello from Lisbon, a very warm city for the season. Oh Mitch, I really feel honoured to see a photo by me as the banner image. Once again, I am pleased to host this week's Challenge that is under the theme of Broken/Damaged. We all have seen broken/damaged things, so I don't think it will be a difficult theme. Anyway, if you don't have shots that fit the theme, please don't break or damage something, intentionally, OK?
Good idea with the theme name this week and thanks for hosting Benni. Also great header photo Baz capturing the romance of the setting sun.
These days I seem to be looking around everywhere armed with my camera, and am even going for walks again on my own. I just hang the cane on a bush or a fence and it works.
This week I took a walk along the local river and have never seen so many swans. It must have been the AGM
On way home I had to pass the sheep pen. They saw me and there was no stopping their curiosity. So what do you do. You take a few photos of course and this one insisted on a portrait.
They are still digging up our village road and now we cannot get to the other side, even the chicken would find it easier. Anyhow they are constructing a new railway crossing with lights and everything as it is against the law in Switzerland to have railway crossings without signals. We had about four of them in our village and now they have either been eliminated or replaced with lights.
And to show that Switzerland is not only mountains and cows, we also work. Here is the view of our local waste disposal plant on the opposite bank of the River Aar. The chimneys are also a local sight, but somehow have their photographic attraction.
