After my last few posts to chronicle the ‘OCD Chicago Tour’, this post will be refreshingly brief!! But that doesn’t mean it lacks content!! Oh No!!
First up…Shimelles ‘LYPLYP’ Class has got off to a good start! So far we have had two challenges…
1 : Share a photo that you have taken that always makes you smile…
…I chose this one of Alex, taken on our first visit to Brighton at Easter ‘09. It is one of a sequence of about six, which show him being totally caught out by a massive wave! I love how he’s still smiling in spite of being soaked to the skin!!
2 : Grab your camera & take a photo of anything within 5 minutes of reading the challenge…
As I was just about to go out & pick strawberries from the garden I took the camera with me…we have been so lucky with these few plants this year…they just keep on coming!!!
We have also had two prompts, involving lighting variants & angle of shot, which I am still working on & will share tomorrow!
Secondly…I was directed to this blog today, from Val’s Blog…to check out the ‘Pass the Book’ idea…do pop over & check it out too…there is an opportunity to take part in what I think is a lovely idea of passing a book along to fellow bloggers & there is also some lovely silver work up for grabs too!!!
…and finally, ‘Postie’ brought me a lovely surprise today!…a ‘Sussie’ from the lovely Amy, who has this gorgeous Etsy shop that you must visit!! She sent a little gift to all the entrants of the anniversary challenge over at TAAFOMFT…how generous was that?!!! I love my ‘Sussie’ & there is more vintage goodness to be had from Amy’s shop!! I’m looking forward to putting these lovely pieces to good use!!
So, that’s it from me for today…short & sweet! I’m off to spend some time with my Hubby…he’s just made us a coffee & there’s an episode of ‘Lie to Me’ all set to go…just gotta love Tim Roth!!!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
