A Photo a Week challenge: Movie reference

Doune Castle, Scotland

You may recognize this castle, if you’re a Monty Python fan. This castle has the distinction of being every castle (EVERY castle) except the Castle Arggghhhh in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The French taunted Arthur and his men from the tower on the left. One of the windows on the third level was Herbert’s bedroom window from whence he shot the arrow with his plea (“To whomever finds this note…”). Terry Jones (one of the Monty Python boys) narrated the self-guided tour recording. Not only that, but it was also built by one of my ancestors, Robert Stewart, the Duke of Albany (c.1340–1420). We love this castle.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO WITH A LINK TO A MOVIE OR T.V. SHOW.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
