Shutterbug Showcase – A Cosy Corner

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.Hyde (61)

Can you spot her in the corner? Hyde (60)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.

Shutterbug Showcase – Relax

Getting relaxed

Watching rains, while have a cup of hot chocolate coffee, is my idea to get relaxed.

Relax! I cannot think of a better word now, after a hectic days of travel and shifting from once city to another. And, so is the theme Jennifer (@jennifernicholewells) gave to me for this week’s Shutterbug Showcase. Thank you Jennifer 🙂

Well, this view is from my room’s window. I can sit here for hours and watch the birds, the greenery around and the kids at school too (that’s on the right, not captured in the pic). That’s my idea of getting relaxed. What’s yours? Let everyone know through your blogpost. Drop in the link in the comments section below until the next prompt.

Going by the rules, here is the Shutterbug Showcase weekly prompt for @beckybwinch for August 4 – A Cosy Corner.
