Shadowed: Weekly Photo Challenge

For a Challenges blog, I have been very bad at recording any challenges this year!  But, the turkey is digested, the chocs are finished,so its time to back to challenging myself in 2015.  The weekly photo challenge is “shadowed”, this is a photo I took in Edinburgh Castle, the light streamed through the windows casting some lovely colours on the walls while putting the wood panels into shadow.

Triumph and a fond fare well

Where has the time gone?  Not that long ago, I was wondering if I could keep up with the challenge of posting a photo every day in November.  It was one of my very first challenges, along with Blogging101.  Well, the time has flown.  I have posted a post every day, enjoyed every minute, met some great people, been inspired by some wonderful photography and have given myself a proverbial “kick up the bum” to stop procrastinating and to start doing.  So a huge thanks to Photo101 and Blogging U, along with all my new friends.  I shall keep following you and look forward to seeing where this takes us all.

One of my early posts was about my lovely spaniel Flynn who I lost recently.  Looking through my photos, I came across this one, taken one Christmas after he had spent a very happy few minutes “opening his pressies”.. Not easy when you have fur and claws rather than fingers..especially as I never spared the sellotape!  I think the look on his face was one of Triumph..and the chew bone was thoroughly enjoyed.

Last year I visited Prague for the first time.  What a lovely city!

One of my impressions of the city was the wide streets ( boulevards? or is that too french?)

This photo is of a young boy clutching a balloon, happily running across the street.  I have to admit that

I cropped out his parents for more of a dramatic effect!
