Gold

Bluedaisyz weekly photo challenge: As soon as I saw the subject GOLD come up, I knew I wanted to take a photo of my Welsh gold ring.

This is the ring I bought for myself in the shop near St.David’s Cathedral in Wales. I was divorced in 1987 and until 2007 very rarely wore a ring on the third finger of my left hand. Then I became a Granny, a status I am so very proud to have. It didn’t feel right somehow not to have a symbol of this wonderful new stage of my life, so I bought myself this celtic design in Welsh Gold. My mother is Welsh, and I am very proud of my Welsh ancestry

So this week’s challenge is a celebration of my Granny ring.

How to photograph it? Hmmmm????

I was just about to put this rusty old can in the recycling when the sunlight caught it and it shone like GOLD ………… ping ………an idea.

I like the combination of precious gold and a golden rusty can and got quite carried away with the photo shoot.

Other entries: Jamie, fascinating, and something I did not know about before; Erika , such a beautiful smile!; Garry, great minds, again Garry!; Roz, and we get a song as well!

And then to combine this with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge: the words this week are ILL and REST. Get well soon Ronovan!

Gives rest, wards off ills

Ronovan writes a weekly review of all the Haikus, it is fun to read through them, here is what he wrote for this one:  Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Time to get wild with Sandra. I’m already talking crazy and not even halfway finished? Yep, trouble ahead. Gold Granny. No, not exactly her title, but I’m going with it. I loved the story behind the Haiku and the images, especially the smaller one.

  3. Those photos are so dead on. I haven’t a clue yet!! And your Haiku suits it perfectly. I trust you had a grand weekend with the grandchildren.

    • Thank you Melissa. I know inspiration will strike – you always astound me with your challenge entries – oops – no pressure!!!
      I did have a wonderful weekend, thank you for remembering – it was hard to leave those three gorgeous little girlies – lump in the throat time. I’m so lucky they live only a few hours away, but the distance still gives me separation pangs!

      • Will you spend more time over the summer with them? Longer days, lovelier weather, please God!
        I’m sure inspiration is right in front of me (as I watch my candle flickering) but haven’t really given it much thought yet. I just got Ronovan’s word’s today…hey I may have just figured it out! 🙂
        Look forward to your Wednesday walk post tomorrow. I am so far behind in my Reader. Just popping in to my ‘special friends’ right now, of which I am happy to say you are at the top of the list. Lovely to chat, must get my five to bed now and finish fermented egg post for Easter!

  5. What a lovely pretty ring and becoming a grandmother certainly warranted it. Pure genius on the photo staging.

    • Thank you so much Cathy! Grannies and Nanas unite!!!! Knew you’d understand!
      I love the way these challenges give me another way to look at the world – next week TEXTURE for the photo challenge – lots of ideas jumping up and down in my head, but not one jumping forward yet.

    • Would you like to join in on the photo challenge? (‘challenge’ is a bit of a misnomer as it is really very relaxed with no rules) We’d love to have you along! xxxxx
