I saw this linky (created by Cakes, Photos, Life) on one of Annie of Mammasaurus fame’s many, many sites and thought I’d join in. The rules are simple:
1) image from a mobile device, add a story about if you wish on your post
We had fish and chips for tea one night last week and Sausage’s kids meal came with a Pirate disguise kit. Being the dedicated blogger that I am, I OBVS took a photo of me wearing it and saved the photo for later use. I think I make rather an awesome pirate, don’t you? AARRRGGGGHHHHH!
Anyway, if you have a mobile photo that you’re dying to link up, add it below and don’t forget to show comment love to the other links 🙂
Win a Personalised Canvas
The lovely folk at photo-canvas.com have been asking me for absolutely ages if I want to review one of their canvases and seeing as I love my lovely readers so much, I thought I’d turn it into a giveaway! I ordered my canvas yesterday, so I’ll give you my review when it arrives.
I’ve been doing a lot more photography lately and I’ve been trying to teach myself to be a bit better at it, especially since starting my Closer to Nature linky, as I really enjoy taking photos but there’s nothing worse than snapping something and thinking it’ll look a certain way, only to realise you’ve got your lighting and angles all wrong!
Yesterday, we visited Tropical Wings, which is a local attraction housing the most amazing selection of tropical butterflies, flowers, meerkats, birds of prey, wallabies and so much more, and I managed to take some incredible photos, some of which I’ll save for future Closer to Natures, but here’s a few you might like:
So, back to the giveaway. The prize is a personalised canvas, measuring 30cmx40cm. I was going to ask people to enter their fave photo and choose one, but to be honest I don’t want to have to be judge as I’ll find it too hard to choose, so I’m just doing a straight-forward Rafflecopter form for everyone to fill in!
Closer to Nature – Photo Linky
I’ve been totally slack with getting a Closer to Nature post up the past couple of weeks, so apologies to anyone who’s been patiently waiting to link up any nature photos! Here’s my photo for this week:
I took a photo of this moth, sitting on our living room wall, a couple of weeks ago and fiddled about with contrast and lighting in Picasa and I think it came out rather well! We’ve had something of a moth infestation this summer, but I read in the news that that’s happening because of their woodland habitats being levelled, so I didn’t begrudge them a place to sleep. I do have a couple of items of clothing with holes gnawed in them though, which takes the mickey a bit!
So, now it’s your turn, I want to see your nature snaps and you can use the widget below to link up. The rules and details are here if you need them.
