WPC – Ooh, Shiny!

…..what am I easily distracted by?

There are probably a lot of things that distract me, make me lose my focus but one of them is seeing art. I’m fascinated with abstract artists and I can get lost in their paintings. This happened to me last year when I had the opportunity to see numerous famous works of art at the Peggy Guggenheim Gallery in Venice.P1010122

Seven Day Nature Challenge – Day 4

Becca Given over at On Dragonfly Wings With Buttercup Tea has invited me to join her in the Seven Day Nature Challenge. For seven days you are requested to post a photograph taken in nature and invite another blogger to join the challenge. Getting people to accept the challenge has been a challenge in itself so I’m putting it out there to anyone who wants to participate. I know that a lot of you take amazing nature photographs but I also appreciate that many of you are already involved in other challenges and are just plain busy in your everyday lives. Any takers? If you’re interested just go for it and let me know.

January 2013 Photo a Day – Shadow

……find a shadow and shoot it. It could be your own, or a shadow of something else.

I don’t know if anyone else is having the same problem but if you are could you tell me if there’s a solution. Lately when I ‘publish’ my posts and preview my work I’ve discovered one of two things. If I edited my post over the course of my writing period I’ve discovered that my ‘published’ piece is not the one I published but an incomplete post that I had saved to draught. The other thing that happens is that after I publish, the post goes back into draught mode. I’ve often wondered why no one was going to my blog, only to discover that it wasn’t published. Very frustrating because I don’t know what I’m doing to finally make the publish function work. Sometimes I’m republishing the same post a half dozen times before it works. HELP!!!!!!

Today’s challenge involved getting photos of shadows. It’s been pretty cloudy the last little while so shadows have been non-existent but just before the New Year I was having some fun on one of our walks after the big snowfall.
