The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, something I haven’t done in a long while, and for this week’s photo challenge, they asked us to stop and photograph something we experienced or witnessed something interesting thing On The Way to our final destination.

This a photo taken at Kilnsey Park Trout Farm nestled under the Kilnsey Crag when we stopped off at for a few minutes on our way to the Kettlewell Mayfest in the Yorkshire Dales…which was a fabulous day out, so I’ve included a few photographs of that as well below.

On the Way
Happy is back!
Last time my little angel of a dog was on this blog was for The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for the word Happy, in which you had to post something which made you happy, so I did a blog about my lovely dog, although I did have to apologise to my Wifey and Girls for not doing it about them, the post even got Freshly Pressed by WordPress, so she got quite a bit of exposure.
Still today she makes me so Happy, as you can see from this ‘light and shade’ photo she posed for a few days ago whilst looking into the sunny garden waiting to see the squirrels.
Shadow of the Dog
I think you’ll agree its a perfect submission the WordPress Photo Challenge for the word Shadowed.
The Tour de France came to Leeds this year (or Tour de Yorkshire as we called it) and as a city, we bathed the town in Yellow, and for me, one the most memorably yellow parts of Leeds was the hand knitted jumpers added to The Nymphs sculptures in City Square by Alfred Drury, a figure prominent in the New Sculpture movement. So it seems quite apt that I add this to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for the word Yellow
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.”

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 🙂
