Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all – and since we’re not meant to publish loads of pictures here in order not to slow the site down, here’s a link to my Christmas photo post:

Christmas Lights on the Cutty Sark

This forum seems a bit dead recently…

…so in addition to wishing you all a merry Christmas, this is a wake-up call – in case any of you would like to continue here, it might be a good new year’s resolution to return here to post and chat again.

So I hope you will forgive me for tagging you all (I will not keep doing this):

Nominations for Tuesday Trivia

Hello everybody,
I have been given the opportunity to be the Schedule Incharge for Tuesday Trivia. I can’t explain how excited I am.
So, this is a shout out for all you beautiful members of Bloggers world. Please nominate yourself for the Tuesday Trivia feature. Since I try to nominate myself every month for this feature, I should confess it is really fun trying to find a few fun facts. Everybody should try it once.
Awaiting your response and nominations for 6th, 13th,20th, and 27th September.
Have a great week ahead.

Celebration (Photo Prompt – 9 June)

Calling all photographers… that is:

  • people who fancy themselves photographers…
  • people who are photographers but don’t fancy themselves…
  • people who fancy becoming photographers…
  • people who… you got it!

Calling also all and sundry non-photographers who have something to say upon the subject of CELEBRATION – being this week’s prompt – in any shape or form, let it be a haiku or cocktail mixing instructions (as long as you’re accompanying it with a photo, obviously)!

To take part in Shutterbug Showcase:
The prompt is “valid” for a week (from Thursday 9 June to Wednesday 15 June).
Please publish your post upon the theme of celebration during this time period on your own blog and leave a link to your post in the comments. Please also visit other participating members’ posts to give feedback!

For inspiration:

The Union Jack flying above the village pub, Cookham, England

England’s gone all patriotic in the last couple of weeks with Union Jacks hanging all over the place: one of the two yearly birthdays of the Queen is being celebrated… (Does this mean she gets two sets of presents?!)

CHANGES TO SHUTTERBUG SHOWCASE:

  1. To make all our lives easier (and provide a little incentive for doing the photo prompt post), from now on whoever does the Thursday photo prompt, will choose the prompt for the week after. The June 16th photo post will be done by @niyati16 – your prompt is: Through the Window.
  2. To help out @piyushavir, I’ve taken over the scheduling of Shutterbug Showcase for July & August. Please tag me, @arwen1968, if you want to nominate yourselves for doing the Thursday photo prompts. Thank you.
    The available dates for July are: 7 / 14/ 21 / 28 July
    The available dates for August are: 4/ 11 / 18 / 26 August

Happy blogging! 🙂

The Second Friday: 100 Words Stories!

Dear friends,

As you know, now we have separate features for every Friday.

There is 100 words stories as a feature second Friday. For Friday, December 11th, so far Piyusha @piyushavir and Irene @icerene01 have nominated themselves. I invite you to participate in this wonderful event. There are no winners and only featuring here is our event so that we get to practice and expose our creative sides together 🙂

I feel we can showcase one story as a sticky post and in the same post we can give links to all other stories posted on this or individual blog sites. 🙂

If you have an idea to improve this feature or how to showcase just one story–please let me know.

Right now: I am feeling that Piyusha’s story should be the sticky post and other stories should be published here in full with their links also given in the sticky post.

Please let me know if there is a better way to go and participate 🙂

@sashay909 @kristinavanhoos @drmegsorick @piyushavir @icerene01 @sandeept252 @avenscent @lulaharp @maddy1953 @pamkirst2014 @meontheroad00 @garthmr

Love and light ❤

Anand 🙂

2. There is no theme.

Thank you very much 🙂

Love and light ❤

Anand 🙂
