This week Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge is to show leading lines.   These photos were mainly taken in  Italy last year, and the ones taken in Venice naturally  involve water and canals.   I hope you like my choices.

Terrific Tuesday Trials : Candid Capture

The fun part of photography is when you catch your subject unaware

I was able to take a lot of candid photos when we went on a tour of Ephesus in Turkey recently, as everyone was so busy looking at the ruins, listening to the guide, and taking their own photos, that they were completely unaware that they were being photographed themselves.

Head on over to Preeti at Lenz Experiments to see some more Candid Captures, she will be delighted to see you.

Word Press Family Award

I am delighted to have won a Word Press Family Award, and thanks to Jill from Capt Jills Journeys, for passing this award on to me.    If you haven’t visited Jill’s blog, check on the link above and read some of the interesting articles and photos she posts.

The rules of the award are not too strenuous, and are as follows:

Award Recognition Procedure

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you. (Here’s my link to the nominating post http://captjillsjourneys.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/wordpress-family-award-i-won-one/)
  3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your wordpress experience and family.
  4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.
    That is it.

And here are my nominees for the WordPress Family Awards…All these people have encouraged me in my -almost – 14 months Blogging, they have liked my posts and commented on them, and write great posts themselves that I enjoy reading.    Have a look at the links, I am sure you will enjoy their blogs also.

Enjoy reading these blogs, and looking at the amazing photos, and laughing at their funny posts!

I will be in touch with the nominees shortly.
