I’m certainly going to miss our weekly gathering, and I could not let go of meeting up regularly so I would absolutely love it if you would like to join in with my

Monthly Meet-Up

Live on the first Tuesday of each month and open for you to leave a link for the whole month.

This month’s prompt is SPARKLE, click on the link to leave your Sparkling entry in the comments.

February’s prompt is WARM

There are many other Photo Challenges in Blogland but there are two rather lovely spin offs from this one:

Firstly are our very own

Postcard from Gibraltar’s

2018 Friday Photo Challenge

2018 Friday Photo Challenge

and secondly

One hosted by Kati at Magic Spark giving our 2017 list another spin around the block.

Kati saw an entry on Postcard from Gibraltar’s blog and was inspired to create her own weekly challenge, in fact she has 7 regular topics you might like to take a look at here.

Photo Challenge Round-Up March

Cathy of Nanacathy, and I have put together a list of Photo Prompts for each week of 2017. We get very excited to see how each person interprets the subjects.

To join in with our challenge please leave a link to your photo in the comments of my post each week, or on Cathy’s post at Nanacathy. Current or archive posts and photographs are all welcome. We usually post our entries on a Tuesday.

I enjoy doing a round up at the end of each month. I do hope I haven’t missed anyone, but if I have please let me know so that I can add your link to the list.

Photo Challenge Round-Up:February

A montage of my February entries

and

The links to all the fabulous One-a-Week Photo-Challenge entries in February.

Cathy and I put the list together for the fun of it. We have set out all the subjects for the year so that we can plan ahead. I keep the list folded up in my camera case.

Thank you so much to everyone who takes part, some of us also enter Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge and combine the two challenges, a nice little conundrum for a Tuesday.

To be included in the Round-Up and so that we can all have a good ‘ole look at your photos, please leave a link in the comments of my Photo Challenge post each week. I do my best to post on a Tuesday. It is always inspiring to see everyone’s different take on the subjects.

‘One-A-Week’ Photo Challenge Round-Up

Each week in 2016 I managed to create a round-up of all the photos entered into our challenge. By the end of the year it felt too big a commitment.

However I miss seeing all the links to your wonderful posts in one place so I hope to do a monthly round-up in 2017. Please let me know your thoughts.

This year Cathy and I are asking that links to the photos are put into the comments on my blog each Tuesday, after I have posted my entry. This will help me immensely, and make it easy for the rest of us to visit.

We had some fabulous entries in January so ….. Here goes!

Photo Challenge Round-Up: FERN

DSCF8494

Unfurling fronds in the woods at Tyneham, a most magical place with an intriguing history.

Yesterday was one of those especially memorable days. My daughter and I took the 5 Dorset grandchildren to Tyneham where they could play amongst the ruined houses, see how schools used to be in times gone by, walk to the beach, and through the woods. Hours of happy time together in one of our favourite places.

Photo Challenge Round Up – GAME

We are off to such a wonderful start with our 52 Week Photo Challenge and I have been wanting to do a little round up of all the photo entries, but have had to wait for my ailing laptop to have bypass surgery. It is now limping along and I’m not sure how long it will last before another symptom appears, but here goes ….

Our first week’s subject GAME:

Jane: a fascinating entry that could, in a way also qualify for Week 3’s subject – VINTAGE.

Cathy: showing her family’s love of ‘the beautiful game’.

Melissa: as ever, we see such a rich mix of family and island life and a haiku.

Ali: a wonderfully happy celebration photo from her archives.

Christina: a very assertive cat who knows how to get what she wants

Rosalind: fun in the kitchen

Roz: this makes me laugh!

And mine: playing board games with little ones is great training for life’s ups and downs, they eventually learn that losing is not the end of the world!

Celebrating 8 entries for our first week.

Please let me know if I have missed anybody out.

It was fun looking at them all together.

Go to the PHOTO CHALLENGE page to find out more about the challenge.

We’d jump for joy if you joined us!
