DOUBLES



Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week is DOUBLES

So I made a collage of my favourite "Doubles" Photographs. The crows sit above our garden, in the hope they spot something to eat - they are partial to unwary fledglings in the late spring, but we try to chase them away then.

The boots were at a garden centre - who wants boring green wellies!?

The two hares were a ?bronze statue at a beautiful garden I went to on my visit to Surrey. Chinthurst Lodge was open specially that day, on behalf of charity, and it was quite spectacular. Such a lot of work had gone into it, I was overcome with admiration.

The two hanks of ropes were hanging above the Lifeboats on the Cruise Ship we went on last year. Luckily we didn't have to use the lifeboats (and presumably the rope too) though as we had storm force 9 winds, we did begin to wonder!

What an interesting perspective! I'll be looking for doubles today, too.

Yesterday, I saw two buzzards sitting on a lamp post along the road. Think that might have been an omen?? :)

Great choices! I love the statues. The crows look a little scary.

Great set of pictures. The statues are awesome, but the hanging ropes are incredibly creative.

So by fledglings, do you mean baby birds? Is that what the crows are looking for?

Nice pictures as usual. But aren't I seeing triple boots?

Very interesting pictures. I think I like the ropes best - they are different and creative.
