Weekly Photo Challenge : ARRANGED

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is ARRANGED.

Arranged. Sometimes you chance across things which were arranged on purpose, or on a whim – find something in your environment which was arranged by a human hand for others to enjoy!

Share a picture that means ARRANGED to you! 

Most of my posts are full of photos of gardens, flowers and plants – not what I would term as ARRANGED for the purpose of a photograph, so my photo library is a bit thin on the ground this week.   Not one  ever to be deterred, I have found the following photos in my collection where I have actually ARRANGED items to photograph for the sake of writing a post.

Last July I wrote about My Perfect Meal and this entailed a lot of fiddling about with food on a plate, carefully ARRANGED to make it look appetizing.

The two photos below belonged to that particular post.

 Just looking at this photo makes my mouth water.  Give me a plate of  blue cheese, grapes and french bread and  it will be very easy for it to be ARRANGED to make me a very happy lady.

On another occasion was an ARRANGED bowl of tomatoes that I had grown in the garden for the Weekly Photo Challenge in August 2011 called “Mountain”.   Now a tomato is not an easy thing to be ARRANGED  because they keep rolling over, particularly the one on the top – they were determined not to behave for the camera.

There are times when ARRANGED things are not always neat and tidy but can be ARRANGED in a haphazard way, for effect.   The next photo was taken at Sussex Prairie Gardens near Henfield.  I loved the way the tea service was ARRANGED among the grasses.

My final contribution for ARRANGED is a photo that I have not ARRANGED myself but they are ARRANGED by engineers.  These are the groynes on the beach that run down towards the sea.   A groyne is a wooden or concrete barrier ARRANGED at right angles to a beach in order to block the movement of material along the beach.  The seagulls love to sit on them too and I love to see them ARRANGED in a row.
