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.

HELP! Bloggers World needs YOU!!!

Okay, that may sound a bit over-dramatic but the truth is that while we had a few awesome days filled with extraordinarily rocking stats in April and May, June has been a bit dismal.  Continue reading

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! 🙂
