Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss


Carl & Paula WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge Kiss
The ‘KISS’ theme for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge was one not to miss, but this old photo-booth shot from me and ❤Wifey’s ‘courting’ days is more of a full-on Snog than a Kiss…what can I say we were a passionate couple back then.

A Word A Week Challenge – Garden

The ‘A Word A Week Photo Challenge‘ this week is Garden, a theme which takes me back to my Dad’s gardens as I grew up, something which he was always passionate about, constantly tending to his raised beds on a daily basis, I too seem to have inherited this fondness for green finger gardening, none more so than in my current house, which I wanted to buy after seeing its garden for the first time ‘before’ I’d even entered the house.

Dad’s current garden (pictured above) is quite a special one, as it was this year that he won the Gold Medal for the Leeds in Bloom ‘Private Summer Garden’ Category, he also picked up Gold in the ‘Disability’ category as well. Not long after this picture was taken he dug up and removed most of the plants to prepare for his Spring 2013 Garden, which he’s now currently hard at work on…

Fingers crossed it can be another Gold winning year for him.

Type in the Dark

You know how I love ‘GIF’s’ on MilnersBlog….the Graphics Interchange Format that was originally introduced by CompuServe in 1987, but it’s now truly inspiring how these ‘simple’ GIF Animations are now expanding to really become a new and true art-form, none more so than this typographical one by MountStar, a Motion Graphic Designer and 3D Illustrator from Fukuoka in Japan who is seriously ‘raising-the-bar’ in the field of Digital GIF animations, especially with his latest project Hidden Typography
