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):

If I missed anybody out, my apologies, you all were meant to be included!

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! 🙂

Cracked Rear Viewer Turns 6 Months Old!

Since I’m new here at “Blogger’s World!”, I thought I’d introduce my site via today’s 6 month anniversary post. Your comments and suggestions are more than welcome!

cracked rear viewer

anniv1

It seems like just yesterday little CRV was born, but it was actually June 26, 2015! On that date I debuted my first post, a look at the early Peter Lorre noir The Face Behind the Mask. I was so green at the time I didn’t even know how to add pictures! Cracked Rear Viewer has come a long way since then, with a loyal following that seems to grow week by week. There’s now 154 posts (including this one) to choose from, covering everything from horror and science fiction to Western and gangster dramas to comedy classics. Though my main focus is films from the 1930’s to the 1970’s, I’ve occasionally stepped out of that box to look at movies from other eras. I’ve added ongoing series like CLEANING OUT THE DVR, THAT’S BLAXPLOITATION!, PRE-CODE CONFIDENTIAL, and the latest, ROCKIN’ N THE FILM WORLD, as well as NEWS & NOTES…
