The steel mesh of the fencing mask and the scarred guard of the sabre seemed to have all the ingredients for a photographic duet.

TWO SUBJECTS (I) -- Fencing mask and sabre.
TWO SUBJECTS (part 2) -- This time the subjects are history and horseracing. Random togetherness in the household library.

A sampling of interesting posts from this week’s challenge are below.

  1. I like your contrast of book subjects. Thought of that but didn’t put it together and do it so I was pleased to see yours! Thanks for the “like” today.

  2. You’re the first fencer to comment! Thanks for stopping by. My dad was a history teacher and I inherited his love for that. The horses and fencing were probably outgrowths of a love for medieval studies. Cheers!

  3. Wonderfully creative take on this weeks theme. Love, love the first shot. I wasn’t sure what I was looking at until I read your caption. And then, of course I knew what it was. Love the literal interpretation of the second shot. Two subjects, yes indeed.

    1. Thanks! Part of the fun of the challenge for all of us is adding a little mystery to the piece; or at the other extreme, making it literal. This weekly challenge is a great exercise for the brain! thanks for visiting! I just had a lunchtime visit to your site, and WOW! Your photos are something for me to aspire to!

  4. The contrasting books and the sabre/mesh photos are both brilliant. I like to discover what comes to people’s mind when they get provoqued with a topic challenge. Thank you for the share πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks very much for taking time to visit and comment. I agree with you — the fun of these challenges is seeing how everybody treats the subject and seeing what themes recur from blog to blog. (such as reflections and shadows with the “two subjects” challenge.)

  5. Thanks for referrencing my blog! With the inclusion of the fencing and horseracing it makes me wonder…are you a knight? Nice photography, artfully done!

    1. Your cardinal and shadow photo was my favorite of the week! Shared the link with folks at the office too and almost universally, the reaction was “awwwwww!”
      Not a knight, but did minor in medieval studies. πŸ™‚ Thanks for taking time to visit and comment and most of all, for sharing your baby cardinal. I love the title of your blog too.

      1. You just made my day! I have only been blogging for a couple of weeks now, but I’m really enjoying. Thank you so much for this positive feedback! I have added your blog to my blogroll, I hope you don’t mind. Please consider adding/following me too! πŸ˜€

      2. Enjoy the blogging! The Weekly Photo Challenge is a lot of fun … really stretches your mind and eye in new directions. Thanks for adding me and I’ll add you in a few! Have a great day and keep up the good work.
