Hello and welcome to The Gallery.
There will be no theme this week as I’m away and I need a rest!
It takes it out of me thinking up these themes you know . . . !
But what I will give you is the winner of the Green & Black’s sponsored theme ‘Nature’.
The standard was high. Really really high.
So thank goodness I had a guest judge in the shape of Mrs W from Clinically Fed Up to help out.
She’s a great supporter of The Gallery, a fantastic photographer and she gamely offered to forego any chance of winning said chocolate to offer her services as a judge.
All I had to do was whittle the 124 entries down to 10 and she would pick a winner from those.
Except I couldn’t. I whittled it down to 22.
But we have a winner. A very very worthy winner I think you will agree.
Drum roll please . . .
First prize goes to: Chez Spud who yelled ‘STOP THE CAR’ to get her entries! Here is just one of the corkers she posted.
Spud, thank you. You will be the proud recipient of an organic Green & Black’s hamper. Try not to eat it all at once!
And for anyone who wants to create a similar look, Mrs W has promised to point us in the direction of some free tools. When she returns from her US holiday where she has been languishing . . .
But that’s not all.
There are 12 runners up, who each get a pack of Green & Black’s Milk Miniatures.
Congratulations one and all and thanks to each and every one of you for joining in the fun.

What Did You Do Today Mama
The Gallery will return next Friday.
If you’re new to The Gallery, here’s the brief: I will give you a prompt, an idea, a notion and you go out and take a photograph using that prompt. Or just use a photo you already have.
The prompt could be one word, an object, an idea, a phrase, anything, and you have to post a picture which you feel represents that prompt.
Post it on your blog and write about it.
It’s not about taking technically brilliant photos – although if you do, I’d love to see them too. It’s about having a passion for pictures; any photos, all photos whether you took it with your all singing all dancing SLR or snapped it on your camera phone.
You don’t even have to be a blogger to take part – just send me your photo and I will publish it on my blog for you. You don’t even have to include your name if you prefer.
When you’ve published it, come back on Wednesday and via a groovy widget thing you can add a link to your post and share it with everyone. The link remains open for a week.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support amateur photographers out there.
The more support you give, the more you will get back.
And if you want to add a pukka linkable Gallery button to your blog (instead of the amateurish one I’ve been using!) the code is just under The Gallery picture in the right hand column on this blog.
Come back on Wednesday and join in. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any prompts or entries in future, make sure you subscribe to my RSS or email feed.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
