This week’s photo challenge is entitled, Place in the World.

There’s a gigantic world out there and while you can feel disheartened by being just one small dot on the planet, so to speak, it’s also a source of hope and opportunity.

For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cosy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city? If landscapes aren’t your thing, you can even explore portraits by playing with scale or fashion. Let loose and give us a glimpse of who you are in the grand scheme of things.

If I venture a few hundred yards from my home, or a mile from a town centre, I’m in the countryside. For that reason, Copeland has a special place in my heart. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. The countryside is my place.

Rest and be thankful
