Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

I have come to realise not to immediately dismiss any of the Weekly Photo Challenge prompts.    They consist of one word and it is all too easy to think  “Oh, I can’t do this one”.   That, obviously, is why it is called a challenge.   Last week was a prime example… we had BREAKFAST.     After a little  lateral thinking I came up with an idea which turned out to be very popular and photographs I felt really quite proud of.

Every Friday I check my emails waiting to receive the one from The Daily Post at WordPress.    When it arrived and I saw it was FAMILY,  I had to think hard about this one.   I have lots of photographs of my family, in particular my grandchildren, but I need my daughter’s permission to post them on my blog.     She is reticent about using shots of the children and I understand her reasons.

The Weekly Photo Challenge is something  I like to be able t0 post at the weekend, so I took a look at the photos that are gathering dust  in the picture  folder on my pc.    During my journey through trying to master the art of the camera I have taken lots of shots since July and the folder is bulging with unused photographs.     I remembered when I was in Buckingham in September, I took a lot of photos of a family of swans and this is a great way to use them.    They quality is not as good as I would have liked but here they are anyway……  A family of Swans.

I may have a second go at this challenge before the end of the weekend, but please enjoy the swans in the meantime.

  1. Now that is one adorable family..Every photo speaks of wonder and amazement . My favorite is the 3rd, lining up and all. I’m sure when they are in flight, they are breathtaking.
    A magical and memorable Holidays to you and your family. Best wishes…
