Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

At the last minute, I decided to participate in the photo challenge this week. It’s a great one – motion. Here my entry:


I love the fire works on the cake presented at a birthday party this weekend. The kids were so excited that we had a couple of goes with the fireworks candles. The little boy turning 6 even got to make a wish.

Other great entries:
Crafty lady in combat boots – Motion

Lucid Gypsy – Motion

I hope everyone had a great weekend too!

Day one: goals, goals, goals

I’ve blogged for 4 years but I haven’t been pulling my blogging weight in recent months. Blogging 201 is a great way to ease back in.

It is a little scary as I can’t be sure I won’t slip up and stop blogging. But the reason want to keep blogging is to:
1. Create a network of followers to make life a little more interesting – ideally up to 1,000 followers in the next 6 months

2. To build my blog traffic from just over 30,000 hits to up 100,000 hits in the next 12 months

3. To write with honesty, incorporating my photography into posts where possible…the satisfaction is not measurable on this one. I can live with that!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

Today, I was with a friend. I had been having a stressful few days and it was great to just talk…and even laugh about it. Today, I honour friends everywhere that stick together. You are totally fabulous!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

I thought this will be hard – only to find a shocking number of unfocused photos on my iPhone.

I’m not sure what was going on there (she says with her hands up looking clueless).

I’m not even sure who was holding the camera in this one…probably the microwave is really a camera. Bizarre.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

Whoooa, I love the sunset! I’m not getting much sunshine in Scotland at the moment so that makes my obsession with the fiery ball slightly worse. I can’t complain too much though. I just returned from Majorca on holiday – there was sun there. Last week, it was snowing in Aberdeen where I live. Fortunately, the sun still sets in the snow like in this picture of the North Pole.

The sun setting over the beach is absolutely stunning. The reds, oranges and yellows – glorious!

Oh, this boat sailing on the sea in the sunset makes my heart skip a beat. Talk about the deep blue sea. How could I ever remain blue with such a phenomenal view?

At this point, I’d be glad just to see the sun. Oh there it is. Ahhh :-).
