For today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I’ve decided to go the simple route for a change and just post straight photos to illustrate K’lee’s theme of; The look and feel of gratitude.
The one thing I’m constantly grateful for is my family, so any excuse to feature them on the blog is very welcome indeed.
We have had a difficult few weeks; with Rhonda and I both looking for new jobs, the tenuous juggling of our finances and battling the intractable Home Office, life sometimes seems as if it’s determined to break us down. But if there’s one thing I can rely on, it’s the way Audrey is always happy with the smallest of treats and surprises.
Which is why it was so nice to see the look of glee on her face when she finally got to be a penguin at the weekend.
Yes, you read that right, Audrey finally realised her dream of being a penguin in the snow. Well, maybe not exactly, but I think the photos below will explain.
On Saturday we missed Barnstaple Christmas lights being turned on, (usually by some z-list celebrity pushing a button, accompanied by a bit of live music on the town square) but yesterday we did wander around the small fair along the riverfront, where Audrey tried her luck on the hook-a-duck stall and won some sort of squishy ball thing which she was inordinately pleased with.
However, the thing that really made her day was the giant inflatable snow globe that was set up to provide Christmassy photo opportunities, particularly as she happened to be wearing her fluffy penguin hoodie at the time.
Find out what K’lee is grateful for HERE, later.
Now it’s time to show us some gratitude.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
