Colour Challenge

In preparation for our upcoming Treasure Hunt at the Photo Club (photographing 10 colour themes), how about posting some of your favourite shots with the colour GREEN.

Green is not included in the Treasure Hunt challenge....and green is a little scarce around here these days, so it would be great to see some of your green pics!

Please post your photos with the labels "Green Challenge" and "Photos by Your Name".

Let's Go Green!

I love these decorative houses in Mahone Bay

I love ornaments. I have a collection of old (over 50 years) and new ones. When I travel I try to pick up new ones. This is a shot that I took trying to figure out how to take sharp photos in low light. :)

Funky Gracie

Our cat, Gracie, decided that she wants to be a present under the Christmas tree. We did, in fact, get her in December 3 years ago. She was VERY feral but is now part of the family.

Christmas Season Photos

It's been a while since we had a blog challenge. 'Tis the Season, so how about posting some of your favourite Christmas Season photos?

When posting your photos:
1. put the name of your photo in the "Title" section
2. add any info you want to share about your photo
3. Select these two "labels" (click on "show all" next to the labels box at the bottom right, and then select the labels):
- Photos by Your Name
- Christmas Season

For those of you unable to post to the blog yourself, you can email me your photos (max 5) and I'll post them for you.

Ho Ho Ho!
