Photo Challenge: Childhood Memory

I have a few pins on my pinterest board “Photography”, but I decided to use the most recently pinned one. The original blog is from here: Little Bennet.

Now, I’ve decided that I’m going to do this one. I. am. going. to. do. it! It’s part of my trying to organise my blogging regime, I have sorted out and scheduled poetry posts on my original blog (Persephone’s Posts) and I am planning two blogs a week on here, not including any for this new photo challenge. Now, I know that there is no way that I can do it in 30 days. That’s just impossible, so instead I will try and do it within 30 weeks, but also with a maximum of two photos per week.

Here is the original list from Little Bennet:

  1. Self Portrait
  2. What you wore
  3. Clouds
  4. Something Green
  5. After Dark
  6. Obsession
  7. Changes to Come
  8. Routine
  9. Someone you Love
  10. Childhood Memory
  11. Something Blue
  12. Sunset
  13. Cannot Live Without
  14. Eyes
  15. Silhouette
  16. Faceless Self Portrait
  17. A Good Habit
  18. Technology
  19. Your Shoes
  20. Something You Want
  21. In My Bag
  22. Inspirational
  23. Patterns
  24. Animal
  25. Strangers
  26. Close-Up
  27. Celebration
  28. Flowers
  29. Black And White
  30. Self Portrait

Not my childhood memory, but hopefully something that will become a routine and a childhood memory for Elvis in the years to come – Keydells Winter Wonderland.

Elvis loves all transportation (what a boy!) especially copters which apparently include aeroplanes! And to add your in, a tree decoration that is one of my childhood memories –

This is a photo of a poppy that Elvis painted at nursery with a photo I attached of Private Mitchell, killed in action 1916. He was 28 and his youngest daughter was born 5 weeks before he died in the November. Without this Private there would be no Elvis to paint this picture.

Apologies for not getting this post ready for Remembrance Sunday.

I had so many ideas for Routine from a snap of my journies every day to how I run breakfast in this house (I’m massively big on routine so there really were hundreds of possibilities). Ultimately I wasn’t sure how the picture would turn out so I went for something different…

This may need explaining. Even my leisure time has a routine. I attended a tv and film convention, I met the guests from my list, I bought the trading cards I needed, I came home. The routine doesn’t end there. Then I carefully put all the cards into wallets, put the walletd into the correct folder, write them on my list, scan all of the autographs, put the autographs in the correct folder. There, my day of fun is done. I survive on routine.

This photo, these cards, are part of a routine that I love!

I took this a while ago now, one of the last nights of our extended summer and at the time my vision behind it was changes to come — day to night, but now, sitting in the dark at the same time of day, it means changes to come — summer to winter.

Gotta love them seasons, eh?

Photo Challenge Draft: Obsession

The photo is not my obsession, it’s from a recent day-trip to a Model Village and, to me, building this kind of village, spending so much time preparing it, maintaining it and using all of that effort, well, that’s an obsession. And there is nothing wrong with that whatsoever. I have plenty of obsessions. I think, within limits, they can be quite healthy:

An Entire Village.

When we moved house, my mum left behind all of her garden solar decorations. The other night I went to bring the washing in and realised that the solar decoration on the table is not only colour changing, but also really pretty at night.

I had to pick two images for this one, both for a walk at Hilsea Lines on a weekend. I like the highlight of colour in the first image and the green, green and more green in the second!
