Apologies to anyone who accidentally got left out, whose @ call sign didn’t work, those who got pinged twice (three times?), &c., &c.! I repeat: All are invited whether listed above or not! Hope to see you all on the 23rd!
Thank you @foodeezjunction for this week’s prompt ‘Details’ (as last week’s post missed due to unavoidable circumstances).
I’m making use of the genre ‘oxymoronic’ (and you’ll perhaps see why in another time and space -and that ‘grotesque’ might also be a fitting categoric definitive, among others).
In the meantime, I’d like to leave you guessing (any idea what it might or might not be?) with the following #shutterbug snap for this week’s #photopost:
…and if you’d like to see some really beautiful macro-photography do check out Susan G’s latest macro-moments challenge post in a thread further down the forum for the link to her #photography event – voting for your #1 choice is open for non-participant audience to take part too. [As you can see i don’t do well with macro, nor photography as such, but do enjoy a little playtime here and there 😀 Thanks for reading and to all those who help keep things rolling here! (Prompt for next week to follow once i snap to my breakfast break!)
Thanks @foodeezjunction for the imaginative prompt 🙂
Here’s my take –
For the better or worse imagination of all of us here.. 😉
P.S. My take on this would be the sense of calm it exudes.. 🙂
The prompt for next week is Details @niyati16.
Thank you @xaranahara for this prompt.
Sharing this Cartoon pic made by my 9-year-old niece. I had another one of some princess, I too don’t know 🙂 . I don’t know what made her think that sleeves should be bigger than the arms. Kids and their imaginations!
Here is the next week’s Shutterbug Showcase prompt for @sadhanacs — Imagination.
Sorry everyone! I ran late. Work was overwhelming yesterday, so I present you with Blythe Baxter from Littlest Pet Shop (2012). I got the coloring picture from a Strawberry Shortcake coloring book. I colored the picture myself.
(I hope pictures can be posted directly for this feature)
Or alternatively, haven’t done it yet, will do it now?
The it being Shutterbug Showcase (the Thursday photopost for those of you who like me prefer plain dealing to fancy names 🙂 ).
6 October: @xaranahara
13 October: @foodeezjunction
20 October: @sadhanacs
27 October: @niyati16
Tag me @arwen1968 if you’re interested!
Tagging all of you as a reminder that the challenge is open to everyone, photographers or not! 🙂 Apologies if I missed out anyone. And also as this place currently seems a bit dead, and perhaps needs a wake-up call!

It’s perhaps a bit early in the month but I like to be organised – besides which many of you might be going on holiday at some point and might not see this post for a while.
A quick reminder about Shutterbug Showcase: this is a weekly feature, running every Thursday. You are challenged to do a photo post on a topic named by the previous poster at the end of their post. Only one post – that of the person undertaking the challenge – will be published on Bloggers’ World (don’t forget to add the tags #photopost and #weekly). Everybody else is welcome to join in by posting responses to the same topic on their blog and linking to the photopost in the comments section.
Dates available for September are:
1 Sept: @arwen1968 (scheduler’s privilege, sorry! – I won’t abuse it often) 🙂
8 Sept: @niyati16
15 Sept: @sadhanacs
22 Sept: @adriennea3
29 Sept: @colettebates

Apologies if I missed out on anyone!
All other forum members are also welcome to nominate themselves!
Thanks for the excellent prompt @foodeezjunction. Must admit I struggled though as I rarely take photos indoors and all I could think of doing when I saw the prompt was disappearing off and sitting in a comfy seat with a book and a glass of wine! However I told myself to focus and so I did. I was scrolling through photographs I took a week or so ago and I came across this one.
Can you spot her in the corner? She’s in the top right, and looks very cosy up there. Although when I took a close up of her in her cosy corner I decided I’d probably not find her nest as cosy as she does! What does cosy corner make you think of? Do you have a cosy corner? Do leave a comment below, or even better take a photograph too and link back to this post. Next week it will be @sashay909 showcasing a photograph. I was going to suggest ‘drama’ for your prompt but the daily post did dramatic at weekend, so how about ‘companion‘ for next week.
