{Monthly Photo Challenge} BROWN

Joining Marcia again this month on the photo challenge. The theme this time around is BROWN!

I battled with this challenge all week because I just didn’t want to take the obvious brown nature pictures, but then had a light bulb moment today, I have loads of brown around my house…

So here we go (I need a lot of luck as I’m posting this from my phone)

Trust you are having a great weekend xxx

Move it…

Our photo challenge for March is MOVEMENT. Not an easy task, because how do you capture movement in pictures, but  this is one theme I was very much looking forward to. Can’t wait to see all the different interpretations of this theme.

The usual rules apply… 5 pics  and an added rule for this theme pictures taken from different vantage points.

Electrifyin atmosphere

Electrifying atmosphere, I literally sat on my edge of my seat all through the game except of course when the goal was scored- I choose the wrong time to answer the call of nature  😉  😉  🙂  🙂

If you can bear the noise (I had ear plugs) and the crowd, nothing beats watching a soccer game live. Though if you are like my hubby anything more than 10 people will scare the beje.sus out of you 🙂 plus he says he doesn’t want to watch people kicking around a ball for 90 mins (good thing he doesn’t like cricket either)

A gaggle tanning after a dip

A gaggle tanning after a dip. These geese all go into the water for a quick dip and then  line up facing the sun and go back in for a dip again then tan again. Must be so much fun. Good I didn’t end up in the water while trying to get this picture

Did you know that a flock of geese, if not in flight, is sometimes called a GAGGLE. Now you know 🙂

Commuters at the train station One of my favourite past time is people watching.... I try to imagine what is going on in people's minds as they go about their normal everyday activities

Hope you will join the photo fun? 

 

Have a lovely weekend xxx

Faces…

New Year, New photo challenge. I am joining Marcia again this month for the photo challenge (You all know I can’t resist any opportunity to post pictures 😉 )

This month’s challenge is FACES… (there’s a song playing in my head about faces or people  (from a popular TV series, but I can’t seem to remember the lyrics or a the series)

No, I didn;t turn this picture around, this was the way it was taken ;-)

I saw MRS Shiny RED Face yesterday and just couldn’t resist

And a little icing on the cake

This was taken (a few months ago) to show off my hair and not my face, but it fits the theme

 I can’t believe it is the middle of the month already. Seems like just yesterday I was running around to get everything I needed for Christmas. Time really does fly.

Hope you are having a nice and restful weekend
