Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 5 -Pair

Welcome back to Hugh’s Photo Challenge.  I can’t believe we’ve already reached week five.  My intention was only to run this challenge for six weeks, but it has proved quite successful and lots of fun so I am going to run it on until at least Christmas.

This week’s challenge is all about pairs.  Here is what I came up with.

Hugh's Photo Challenge

A pair of poached eggs on toast!

This was something I had for breakfast a few weeks ago.  I was thinking of entering this photo for my first photo challenge but when I saw it I thought it would come in useful for another week.  I know the toast and poached eggs are not matching but I just loved the way they made a pair.

Now it’s over to you.  Show us something that comes as a pair.  It doesn’t have to be a matching pair but try and show something where there is just one pair.

Fancy joining in the fun?  Here’s what you need to do.

1. Take a photo of something that comes as a pair.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 5 – Pair.”
3. Add the photo you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view your post.

Now on to last week’s challenge where I asked you to show us a photo which showed us something that was isolated.

Many thanks to everyone who participated in the challenge, not only here on WordPress, but also on Instagram.  Once again you came up with some remarkable photos and I’m very pleased to say that last week’s challenge saw the biggest amount of entries so far.  I’ve chosen five entries to showcase, which are listed below.  Please show your support by clicking on the link for each one and take a look at these great photos.

  1. Sue Vincent, over at Daily Echo, went with a black and white theme. Her photo shows a huge monster of an item that does look very isolated. She also included a wonderful haiku.
  2. Lucile, over at Lucile De Godoy, took advantage of the recent Autumnal foggy weather with her photo.  Not only does the boat look very isolated, but so does the lone sailor on the boat.  I liked the odd splashes of colour in this photo.
  3. Luccia, at Reading Jane Eyre, showed us a very isolated late bloom from her garden.  She also included a wonderful post about what this isolated bloom was teaching her.  Check her post out and be inspired.
  4. Cee, at Cee’s Photography, gave us three great photos, one of which was an isolated tree.  Like me she took the photo in black and white. She also featured a spider’s web which had captured an isolated object.
  5. Debbie, at Travel With Intent, also captured a lone tree and also took advantage of the recent foggy weather.  Her photo was in colour but still captured the key word of Isolated.  As soon as I saw the photo I could see a story developing in it.

Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Friday 13th November, 2015, and I’ll showcase five entries when announcing next week’s challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.  Have fun!

    1. You’re very welcome, and thank you for joining in the fun and participating in my photo challenge. You’ve entered great photos for the challenge. I love them all but especially the one of the pair of shadows. I hope you’ll join in next week’s photo challenge as well.

      Best wishes,

    1. Hi Iris, I am so glad I was able to help with your choice for breakfast today. My poached eggs on toast seem to have got a lot of people wanting the same.

      I’m glad you found the challenge fun to do. Some of the pairs of chairs you took photos of were in unusual places. I hope you’ll join in the fun again next week.

      Best wishes,

      1. Yes, it was windy but warm. We sat on the beach and my grandson tried to make a sandcastle! He jumped around the beach shouting ‘it’s my castle!’ He’s only 2 1/2😂


  1. Lovely pair of poached eggs and toast. You and I have great taste. I love these for breakfast, and love it when the eggs are just right, just runny yet a bit gooey-thick at the same time. Is that some butter on the bread I see? Apart from eggs, I love eating my toast with smashed avocado. I don’t know if that’s a popular thing over there in your part of the world.


    1. Hi Mabel, I’d never heard of anyone putting mashed avocado on their toast until Nigella Lawson did it on TV a few weeks ago. I do enjoy mashing a banana up and putting it on my toast and I have, on occasion, spread tomato ketchup on my toast as well (not on the banana though). I now only eat toast for breakfast on a Sunday morning. I’m currently enjoying porridge on other mornings which helps warm me up now that it has got a lot colder. We even had some snow yesterday ☃️

      I’m the same with boiled eggs. I like the yolk runny but also a little gooey. Great for dipping soldiers in. 🙂


      1. I heard of that too, Nigella making avo on toast on her show. You spread the avocado on the bread like you spread peanut butter or jam on it. It’s a great savoury breakfast if you’re into savoury. Porridge is certainly great for cold mornings. Maybe add a dash of honey to it if you like sweet 🙂


      2. I’ve been rather naughty and been adding Maple Syrup to mine. However, I have discovered that the Japanese drink a very small amount of pure Maple syrup every day as a health drink. That means it can’t be that bad to add to porridge, can it? 🙂
