Our Photo Challenge prompt this week: HAPPY

click on Happy, to go to Photo Challenge page and find out all about it – we’d love you to join us!

So many things I could have photographed for this subject, but this sums up so many of the things that make me happy and my grandchildren(1) too. MissE (1a) comes to me one day a week(2) for Home Education(2a). We have such fun together(3). Last Wednesday, at last the sun shone(4) so we went for a walk (5), I grabbed magnifying glass as I went out of the door and Miss E immediately found all sorts of things to look at (6) : lichen, mud, leaves both back and front, gorse flowers , maize husk, acorn cup. Her delight (7) and enthusiasm (8) is always such a joy. We also found these deer prints(9) and then we were both excited to see badger prints(10) and tracked them to the hedge (11).

So you see this photograph is 13 ‘HAPPY’s in one .

joining in with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, prompt words CRYSTAL and HOPE

ps. My laptop crashed☹ and I am struggling to do this on an iPad 😫 I’m not finding it easy and it is taking ages!!!!

pps. I tried to link in other entries and got into a right old muddle on the iPad, so I will have to wait til my lovely laptop is all better. There seems to be a universal law of balance in operation here: HAPPY and FRUSTRATION see-sawing it’s way through my post. 😄 + 😬

This is the last photo on the Bluedaisy Photo Challenge.

I can hardly believe that I have posted a photo every week for 52 weeks – Wow!

JOY!

A brand new Photo Challenge for 2016
Photo challenge

We are proud, happy and excited to present our spanking new weekly Photo Challenge all ready for 2016

Four, fab, photo fiends have joined together to create this 52 week photo challenge.

Let us introduce ourselves:

Cathy from Nanacathydotcom

Jane from Rainbow Junkie

Melissa from The Aran Artisan

Sandra from Wild Daffodil

We have so enjoyed Jamie’s (Bluedaisy) photo challenge that we just did not want to stop – many thanks to Jamie for starting this off and for her great list of prompts – we hope we have created an equally inspiring list.

The ‘rules’ such as they are, are very relaxed. It is up to you to take those prompts and run with them:

1. You could make it your own challenge to post a photo each week for 52 weeks,

or

2. See each week as a fresh challenge and enter as many weeks or as few as you like. You will be very welcome whenever you want to join us.

3.We intend to enter just one photo as the ‘challenge’ photo, but feel free to enter as many as you like.

4. Whether you like to take a new photo each week according to the subject, or search your archives to find a photo that fits – all are welcome.

5. Join in at any time during the year, the more the merrier.

6. Each week the PROMPT goes live from 9am GMT on Monday to 9am GMT the following Sunday. We start on Monday 4th.January, 2016.

7. Anytime during the week post a photo inspired by the prompt on your blog Once Cathy has posted her photo that week (usually on a Tuesday) you can add your link in the Comments section of her post.

You are welcome to download and keep the list or display it on your blog.

Melissa and I like to combine the Photo Challenge with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge. Sometimes it is an extra brain-tease but on the whole one often seems to support the other – it really is fun – have a go!

Or maybe the photo will inspire a poem or short story – oooh – some fun possibilities!

But of course there is absolutely NO need to combine them if that does not appeal – this is primarily a photo prompt.

Primary Aim: FUN!

NEXT WEEK’s PROMPT – Our first!

Any ideas?
