Hello and welcome to week 170 of The Photo Gallery. And the first one of 2014. Woo hoo!
This year sees The Gallery enter it’s fifth year – which I find incredible; incredible at the creativity and support you’ve continued to show over all this time.
I love photos and photography. I love looking at everyone else’s photography and most of all I love to see the words you craft around your photos that bring them to life in new and interesting ways.
This is what makes the Gallery so special to me and why I will keep plugging away at new (and hopefully) interesting themes which give everyone the opportunity to join in and create something special.
This year I’m opening up my Photo Gallery Pinterest board on which I’ve pinned some of my favourite posts over the years; now you can add yours or someone else’s who has inspired you if you wish.
Stories like this one from Mammasaurus who wrote about her children in the woods on the theme ‘C is for’, Edspire who wrote about her marriage proposal for the theme ‘Sparkle’ and Laura who wrote so poignantly about memories of her youth on the theme ‘Expressions’.
It’s open to all so just jump on in!
So on to the theme. This week it is: New.
With the start of a new year, a new date and a fresh new page on our calendars, things inevitably change. New job, new friends, new perspective on life.
For me there has been lots of new. New school for my girl, new drive to get moving more for me, new dog walks.
But this blog still remains true to what it’s always been; a place to share my family’s journey and a place that you, the readers, can come and hang out, meet new people, have a virtual cuppa and share the online love.
As ever, The Photo Gallery is about being part of a community of like-minded people. It’s about sparking your imagination, being inspiring – and inspiring others.
It is for everyone, and you will get out of what you put in, so try to visit as many of the other entries as you can, say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you, be generous with your comments.
See you on Wednesday x
