Macro Moments Week 2

A new challenge called Macro Moments has been started by Susan at

Macro Moments: Week 2

and I’m joining in!

This is a rather cute little hover fly I saw on my walk today and he’s joined by lots of teeny weeny beetles that are everywhere at the moment!


I used my trusty Canon PowerShot SX50 HS on the macro setting….not too complicated!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners

So this week we have been asked to find photos where ‘Partners’  is the topic…..subjects that are in tune with one another……I have 4 photos where there is a natural and vital partnership between creatures and plants and the 5th is what I might call ‘a little saucy’!

But where am I?

The Bridge of Sighs is an enclosed bridge made of white limestone and has windows with stone bars. It passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects the New Prison (Prigioni Nuove) to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace. It was designed by Antonio Contino  and was built in 1600. 

The view from the Bridge of Sighs was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment. The bridge name, given by Lord Byron as a translation from the Italian “Ponte dei sospiri” in the 19th century, comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh at their final view of beautiful Venice through the window before being taken down to their cells. In reality, the days of inquisitions and summary executions were over by the time the bridge was built and the cells under the palace roof were occupied mostly by small-time criminals. In addition, little could be seen from inside the Bridge due to the stone grills covering the windows.

That’s All!
