The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 39 #SplodzWPC

For some reason this week I have been feeling very pensive. Not down or sad, just very full of hope and wishes and thought. So naturally your photo theme for the current theme will follow that mood… Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 39 Theme: Reflections Maybe it’s because it is September and kids everywhere are starting

Currently Loving: September 2016

As you will have noticed I have had a few months off the monthly Currently Loving posts here on Splodz Blogz; I was away for three months then had a super busy month at work in August, and September has quite simply flown by. I did think I should start in October but I had

We are moving fast into Autumn and so it is the season for muddy footpaths and jumping in puddles. So this week’s theme is particularly relevant…  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 38 Theme: Muddy  I like to think that dirty hiking boots are happy hiking boots. What about you? And how about this for a muddy

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 37 #SplodzWPC

It’s “photo of the first day at School” week here in the UK – thousands of mums and dads getting a snap of their kid(s) standing tall outside their front door, posing in their shiny new School uniform. I don’t have kids, but I love the photos that are posted all over facebook and twitter

Thousands of Photos of Bees – Mayfields Lavender Farm

A couple of weekends ago we spent some time running up and down the lines of lavender at Mayfields Lavender, an organic lavender farm situated in the lovely North Surrey Hills. It’s not somewhere I’ve heard of before, in fact I thought all lavender in the UK was grown in Norfolk (!), but since I posted about it on Instagram

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 35 #SplodzWPC

Week 35? We’ve been doing this for a little while now haven’t we? I hope you are still enjoying the weekly themes. Would be great if you could share the idea with your friends this week – let’s get some more people involved in our little photography challenge.

Sunflowers and Conservation at Vine House Farm, Lincolnshire

Getting outdoors and enjoying the countryside doesn’t have to include well-planned adventures or super human endurance efforts. It can be a simple day out at a local farm, learning about their business and getting a look behind the scenes. Living in Lincolnshire I am surrounded by fields that make up some of the most important

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 34 #SplodzWPC

I’m rather hoping that I’m not jinxing the weather with my photo challenge theme this week… sincere apologies if it now rains for the next seven days! Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 34 Theme: Sun Kissed  It’s been a lovely few days here in the UK, it’s great having some proper summer, I

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 33 #SplodzWPC

Loved your “through the fence” shots last week – some great ones from home and away, thanks for taking part. This week I’m going to make you think a little bit…  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 33 Theme: Easy Going    I imagine a photo of a nice hammock, or a sleeping cat, or

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 32 #SplodzWPC

Something a bit different for you this week, to hopefully encourage you to get outside and see what cool snaps you can get while out and about…  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 32 Theme: Through the Fence This is the fence at the top of the hill near where I live. The sky might have been a bit

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 31 #SplodzWPC

Is it small, or is it far away? You decide in this week’s photo challenge theme…  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 31 Theme: Small    I’m not sure that Guy Martin has ever been described as “small” before, but here he is, tiny in the middle of this photograph of Brayford Pool, Lincoln,

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 30 #SplodzWPC

Thanks to everyone who joined in last week’s “bite to eat” theme – some of the interpretations were not what I was expecting at all, loving that you all come up with something different. This week, something to encourage you to look down…  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 30 Theme: From Above  I decided to
