The Photo Gallery 225: Show Me Your Teddy Bear

opteddybear birmingham childrens hospital

When you set a theme for The Gallery, go on holiday, totally forget, and remember just before bed time the evening before it goes live and you’ve been gardening all day and have to get your 12 year old to quickly snatch a photo for you.
This is what you get.
Good job teddy is looking dapper is all I’ll say.

This week’s Photo Gallery is for a lovely 10 year old and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Finlay Church was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour last year. An aggressive tumour that’s rare in children.
But Fin wants to say thank you to those who have been helping him through his condition by raising funds and breaking world records. He wants to break the Guinness World Record for the most teddy bears in a row (he needs more than 4,000) which he will be going for on May 3. And now he’s on the biggest bear hunt ever!

So in support of Fin here is my teddy bear. Now show me yours. Literally take a selfie with your teddy bear. Or your kids’ teddy bear. Or your dog’s teddy bear.

And if you want to share it on Twitter take your photo with a piece of paper with the hashtag #Opteddybear to show Fin your support. Dame Kelly Holmes has joined in. As has Olly Murs and Eamonn Holmes.
This post is for week 225 of The Photo Gallery: The theme is: Show Me Your Teddy Bear.

Now it’s your turn to link up your post and join in. If you’re new here and want to know what the Photo Gallery feature is, go and read all about it, and then come right back and join in!

Here’s how to join in

Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like.

Now share your photo. Write a blog post using your photo. You can write as many or as few words as you choose. You don’t even need to use a new photo; it can be something from your archives. Just a photo which you think represents the prompt.

 Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.

 Add a link back to your post using the linky tool below. The linky stays open until Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.

Now go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have. It’s about going out and encouraging each other.

The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.

If you’re using Twitter you can find us on the hashtag #TheGallery.

 The Photo Gallery is also on  Pinterest and Google +
Follow Tara Cain’s board The Photo Gallery on Pinterest.

To ensure you don’t miss a prompt, you can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to have them delivered directly to your inbox every Friday.

 PLEASE don’t link dump – this is not that sort of linky!

    What a lovely looking bear. I think I went overboard sharing the gang that share my bed! Will take another one with just 1 bear!

    I love him!!! What a cutie. And here’s to Fin getting the 4000 bears in a line. He sounds like a remarkable little boy.
