A glimpse of light (Shutterbug Showcase)

I’ve been meaning to get into the habit of keeping up with this #photopost event. The days and weeks fly by! Yesterday’s ShutterbugShowcase post is a gorgeous glimpse of light from Arwen1968.

I’m sharing two of my photos. The first, below, was taken during my first visit since her funeral to my mother’s resting place at the cemetery. I had been sheltering under the trees from heavy rain until the sun came out a little enough again.


My next photo, below, is to reflect “light at the end of the tunnel”, so to speak, with a nod again to Arwen1968 and her blog, and also remembering the previous week’s ‘Summer in the City’ prompt. This was my first visit to the park with my youngest grand-daughter – it was an English Bank holiday Monday – I even had to up and down a big wavy slide with her. I hadn’t been on a slide for ?how many years? So we had a fun afternoon and wore each other out 🙂


There’s still time to post for this prompt (Glimpse of light) if you’d like to join in with the Shutterbug Showcase event at Blogging101alumni.– the next prompt should be revealed on (or soon after) 8th September.

Smiles (Shutterbug Showcase)



Family photos circa 1975-1990, selected and framed by my mother (pictured twice, above right)

Whilst deeply saddened for the recent loss of my mother (back in April), and the long ago loss of my father, they smile in my memories and their love still remains.

Smiles is the prompt for this week’s ‘Shutterbug Showcase’ event over at Blogger’s World (participation  criteria here). Featured this week is a post by blogger surbhisachdeva89  reflecting on time together as a family. Her photo is a fab take on the prompt, please do visit her post and maybe take part yourself too (- post on your own blog with a pingback to this week’s feature – responses can be photo(s)/writing…) You might also like to check out surbhisachdev89’s personal blog, Writing Belly.

(I snapped the photo for this post this morning, finding it almost impossible to obtain a clear, reflection-free image. An alternative version of this photo/post might appear at a later time on my other blog, The Wishing Well, where I might catch up with some of the previous prompts I’ve yet to post for – if ever I can get my blogging brain back up to former snail~speed!)
