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):

September Photoposts Calling!

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.
