So here's my first image for my 2020 challenge.

Local Interest.... A little bit of a shoehorn Tenby's old Lifeboat house with the new one in the background. Why a shoehorn well it was local when I was on holiday over the New Year :exit:and well I wish it was Local to me and not nearly 4 hours away!

As it's week one, I'll let you off 'Archive' Mark ;)
Those Reds and Blues are very vibrant. I thought you'd come over to the darkside and joined the Fujista, but evidently not.
I love the gull cheekily sitting on top of the roof... Nice start to your 52.

Thanks Tim I hadn't noticed the Gull! I tired Fuji but couldn't get on with it!

Not sure about an archive shot it was only taken on Friday!:p

That`s a nice colourful shot Mark, good composition too.
Thanks Dave I was waiting for my friends so I walked down to a part of the harbour I've never been down to before, I will be returning there in September!

Thanks Pete

Yes it was on Grand Designs the guy wouldn't say how much the project cost but it must have been a considerable amount.

We go to Tenby at least twice a year it's like a second home, if I won big on the lottery the first thing I would do is buy a house there!

Hi Mark, my favourite thing is the way you have composed so the two structures echo each other's shape. The contrasting colours and the little patches of light on the far building and the underside of its ramp make a striking scene.
Thanks Andrea.
Love the colours and composition Mark (y)
Cheers Chris
Terrific start to your 52 challenge Mark!:clap:
I love the vibrant colours, and the use of the lifeboat slope as a diagonal is inspired.
Great work...can't wait to see more images from you over the coming weeks and months!(y)
Thanks Gareth I hope to complete the 52 this year :angelic:

Great start, cool colours in this one. :clap:
Thanks Bob

Now on to Week 2 and Pleasure

So this is Frankie playing with a shoe lace which she really enjoys (but not as much as she enjoys chasing Honey around!)

WEEK 2 PLEASURE by Mark Gameson, on Flickr

And Honey really enjoys with outside (so Frankie can not chase her!)

WEEK 2 PLEASURE2 by Mark Gameson, on Flickr

These too little fury felines have brought so much joy and pleasure to me since they became part of our family last year it's unbelievable.

Number 2 takes it for me - lovely clean image, and well suited to B&W.
That said, Number 1 is also a corker - spot on focus on the eye, which cannot be easy!
Thank you yes the picture of Frankie was a challenge as the lighting wasn't brilliant and Frankie is like a little rocket when she wants to be!

Great eye contact in both shots Mark, I too like the B&W and think it`s a cracking image.
Thanks Dave I may use the 2nd image for an upcoming club competition with a set subject of F is for..... and call it Furry Female Feline:D

Both nicely executed. The staring eyes on 2 are a bit much for me. Looks like she out to get you next.

Like both. Maybe 2nd shot wins it.
Thanks Bob

Thanks Nick she was probably planning on how to stress me out by staying out too long! or thinking where's my third breakfast slave!

2 nice images there Mark, I love the DoF in #1
And the processing suits #2 (y)
Thanks Chris

Thanks Helen Frankie keeps Honey agile by chasing her around the house!

Cheers Dave :)
2 very nice cat pictures.
Thank you Clive

both lovely pics the b/w suits the 2nd one
Thank you

Hi Mark

I also prefer the second image, the B&W simplifies it.

Pete
Thank Pete

It's interesting as my friends prefer the colour version of the one honey (although that version was taken on my phone)

#1 for me, because it's an action shot and we all know how hard it is to get moggies to stay in one place for more than a few seconds.
My only critique would be on the lighting as it's an inconsistent temperature (but god knows how you'd have avoided it).

Beautifully captured (or dare I say cat-tured:LOL:) cat portraits!

#1 is full of energy and such a lively model with great focus on the eye!
#2 is wonderfully processed for b&w, and again perfect (purr-fect :facepalm:) focus right on those striking eyes!

I'll spare you more awful cat puns...excellent work Mark...and I'm not 'kitten' (kidding...ok one more!:LOL:)

Both lovely shots but I prefer number two. I like the mono and the upright pose and eye contact are quite striking. Terrific image.
