Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

I always look forward to Friday and  the Weekly Photo Challenge.   So when I found this week’s title was OPPORTUNITY I have to admit that my heart dropped slightly,  how on earth was I going to capture that one?   Obviously a lot of lateral thinking was going to be needed.   My next step was to look up definition of Opportunity in the dictionary:  my eye caught A Chance; A Prospect and A situation favourable for the attainment of a goal.   Armed with that idea, I trawled through my library of photographs.   Whilst it’s fun to take new photos for challenges, there can always be some ideal old ones, so why not use them.

I found a lot of photos that fall within the challenge so here are my contributions for this week:

  • A Photo Opportunity

This is my grandson, taken a few years ago.   Is this an opportunity for a photographer in the making?

  • A Feeding Opportunity

This little duck was determined to make the most of the opportunity of any crumbs falling from our table.

  • A Painting Opportunity

I found this photo in my Guernsey folder.    As we walked along the headland we came across a bluebell wood which was full of artists taking the opportunity to capture the beauty of the bluebells.

  • A Perfect Opportunity

My granddaughter, surrounded by balloons, is looking for the perfect opportunity to grab one.

…. and finally

  • An opportunity to sail away

  8. I liked the duck. And the shadow of the duck is neat…in the shape of a whale. Be neat to see the duck cropped with just it’s shadow for another entry.
