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.
And then to combine this with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge: the words this week are ILL and REST. Get well soon Ronovan!
Celtic gold design
A Grandmother’s status ring
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.
