The Photo a Week Challenge: Backlit

This post is an experiment in using my photos utilising a separate WP site to hold my photos. This blog’s media is getting full and try as I might I can’t delete enough photos fast enough to reduce my storage. Thanks to Jude for suggesting doing this and her helpful tips. Let’s see if I can do it and it works.

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

    “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

For what it’s worth, it’s worth all the while……I hope you have the time of your life

Sometimes a heart is dark

Sometimes a heart is upside down

Give love, hold love, be love…..hugs to anyone out there that needs one

Your favourite images from 2020

The Lens-artists Photo Challenge #129: Favourite Images of 2020

I have gone back through my stats to find what was your favourite post of the month and then get the image or pick one if there is a few photos in the post. It appears that people have taken to the Last on the Card Photo Challenge as it is the most popular post almost every month. Considering it was started as an impulse by me in January 2020 it is fitting that that image of the Sacred Kingfisher be the one for January.

JANUARY 2020

February the Last on the Card and the This is January were popular by you. These two posts, Last on the Card and the This is……. series, are the most popular for the est of the year so I am going with the next one down. This was a Six Word Saturday
