Saturday is Caption Day!

I thought I’d have a go at linking up with the lovely Mammasaurus’ ‘Sat Cap’ linky today and this is my offering:

“If I hold the card here long enough, maybe she won’t notice my monkey assistant aiming his camera up her skirt…”

Leave a caption in the comments below and don’t forget to head over to Mammasaurus to take a look at all of the other entries.

Closer to Nature – A Photography Linky

After I put this up two Tuesdays ago, I had a really healthy response to the idea and had 14 or 15 people link up, which I was completely thrilled with, so as promised I thought I’d do it again. Welcome to Closer to Nature!

As with last time, there are no real hard and fast rules other than your photo must be something natureĀ related, but that leaves a heck of a lot of scope for your imagination to go wild (pardon the pun…!). Also, don’t forget to visit the others and leave some comment love, we all like a bit of that šŸ™‚

There’s a linky widget below and button code in the sidebar, I can’t wait to see your photos, here’s mine:

Wild flowers.

This was taken on the day that Husband and I decided to take our daughter to Hadleigh Country Park, home of Hadleigh Castle and now the site of the Olympic Mountain Biking track. While we were there, there were loads of fenced off areas and mysterious portacabins dotted around the place, so I’ll be curious to see what it’s been left like after the Olympics. It’s been a site for mountain bikers for many, many years, Husband and his friends have spent many a happy hour hurtling down those hills, but apparently once the Olympics has buggered off, people will have to pay to ride the trails, which I think is a bit of a cynical move by the council, to be honest. Hopefully the flowers will all still be there to enjoy for free…

Closer to Nature – A Photography Linky

On this week’s Silent Sunday entry, my friend commented and said “You guys are very Attenborough on a Sunday, love it!” and I realised that I really do love taking photos of nature, creatures weird and wonderful and generally anything that makes a good macro shot!

I decided that, in honour of the school holidays and the good weather we’re having, that I’d do a little linky where you can get ‘Closer to Nature’ and post your best nature photos. There are no rules other than that it must be a photo of something nature related, but it can be just a photo or have a story with it.Ā I’ve made a little badge too, that you can add to your post, which is in the sidebar and will link back here to everyone’s posts.

Have fun, I can’t wait to see your photos! If enough people link up, I may do it again throughout the holidays.

Here’s mine – Husband took it using my Canon Ixus compact camera with the macro on:

Silent Sunday Extra – My Inspiration

This weeks Silent Sunday was taken on a whim when I was out with Sausage for a stroll along the beach. We had walked out along (what I later found out was) a sewage pipe so thatĀ SausageĀ could take some pictures with her camera and inspect the seaweed, but when I got to the end and looked back towards the shore, it reminded me so much of a photo that Husband had taken 6 years ago, on our honeymoon, that I had to capture it. Here’s the original:

 

And here’s the contrast:

Quite a difference, huh?!

Wordless Wednesday – Weight Loss Inspiration

I decided to take Pippa’s lead this week and get involved in Wordless Wednesday (although, this doesn’t feel very wordless…). I’ve chosen a photo of myself, about 20 minutes before I became Mrs. C. I chose this because the weight I am there is what I’d like to get back down to, so it’s a reminder that itĀ isĀ possible for me to get back there.
