This week, The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge wanted us to share our photos of twinkling light, and want a great word ‘Twinkle‘ is for a mid December photo challenge. But they did say don’t go for the cliché Christmas shots, but instead how the light can create that twinkle, even in nighttime photography, and capture the sparkle of stars…which I did.
As they said in the brief…
“Where there is light, there will be a twinkle.”

eaOne of the very first WordPress Photo Challenge I ever participated in was “Big” so it seems quite fitting I start doing the Photo Challenges again after nearly a 4 month break with the theme “GRAND”. The photo’s I’m submitting is of the Leeds Skyline on a very cold night.
I’d managed to sweet talk the security team looking after the City Island residential scheme, on the edge of the city to let me use one their apartments for some night photography. Amazingly he gave me the keys to the empty Penthouse suite ‘Room 102’ on the 19th floor, not ideal for those afraid of heights like me, but I was prepared to overcome this fear in the faint hope of getting some nice shots of the city at night.
Earth Shine Leeds
This long panorama included the Crescent Moon on the far right with a lovely glint of Earth Shine.
Had to include a B/W shot, as it makes the city lights look so sharp.
I’ve made ALL the images a Gallery Link, so you can see the detail better.
Hope you like them 🙂
Young at Heart and totally Carefree
One of my favourite captures recently perfectly says it all for this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge…This lovely senior lady looks so ‘Young at Heart’ and Carefree enjoying her Ryeburn of Helmsley’s champion diary ice cream outside the York Museum.
The thing I love most is how she’s rocking those trendy Nike trainers as well…go girl 🙂
Typography and ‘good’ Signage is quite a passion of mine, especially when its hand-crafted with the skill of the traditional sign-writers. The sign below really caught my eye and ticked all my boxes on a boys trip to Brighton, and I can say we did exact what The Sign Says and drank copious amounts of both the mentioned beverages…I did also have quite a hangover the following day as well 😉

Part of The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says
I thought why submit a few ‘Colour’ Themed images for this weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, but instead over 1000, so I downloaded my full Instagram library of 1020 images (to be exact) to create a colourful Rainbow Mosaic using them all.
…I hope you like it.
