The Gallery: Week 35

Hello and welcome to week 35 of The Gallery.

I’ve got an actual challenge for you this week.
You may have to – shock horror – take a new photo especially for me!
I’ve been rolling this theme around in my head for a few weeks now. I thought ‘nah, it’s too much to ask. People won’t like it. They’ll roll their eyes and tut and mutter under their breath’.
But then Karin at Cafe Bebe contacted me to suggest something along similar lines and I thought, sod it, I’ll just go for it.

So if you love it, it was my idea, if you hate it, go hunt Karin down . . .  *ahem*

So this week’s theme is: Before and After.

Here’s the plan. Take one of your old photos – from a year ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago, whatever – and recreate it today.
It doesn’t have to be exactly the same: As ever the theme is open to interpretation.

Really can’t wait to see what you come up with!
As an added incentive I have a great prize to be won. And this week I won’t be judging ‘the best’ entry. I will have my glamorous assistants (aged 5 and 7) to pick two entries entirely at random.

The prize? Your own fabulous book from Blurb, the online store which helps you create your own books using all your own words and photographs.
I am seriously jealous, because they are gorgeous.
2 winners will be able to create a 160-page fancy pants hardback book of your choosing.
Make a book of your blog – imagine that, putting your favourite blog posts and photos in a real, hold-in-your-hand book? Make your very own recipe book, a journal, a travel memoir, a baby record – whatever takes your fancy.

Don’t forget to come back on Wednesday to add your link.
And obviously, visit as many others as you can, say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you.
Appreciate the wonderful words and photos that are opening themselves up to you.
The link stays open until the following Tuesday, so don’t worry if you don’t manage to post on Wednesday.
