2013 Weekly Photo Challenge – Week 2

Another week has gone by in a cosmic blur again, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun 🙂

Anyway onto this weeks piccies.

The first one is definitely a scary one 😉 The weather was miserable outside so I had a pamper day and re-coloured my hair.  I get it done in the salon every other month, but in-between I do it myself just to keep it looking nice.  So this is a shot after I’d finished.  I hadn’t styled it, just let it all hang loose, a bit like I was feeling that day 🙂


Monday night was our camera club meeting, and we had a talk by a freelance photographer called   ‘Colin Bell’, the photographs on the wall were a sample of his work.  He’s not actually in this shot, just some of the club members.


As I was driving home from the club on Monday it started to snow.  This was definitely the excitement of the week.  It doesn’t snow much in Ireland, and what we do get, very rarely lasts longer than a day; therefore I enjoy every minute of it while it lasts.

I was keeping my fingers crossed that it would stick, and when I woke up on Tuesday morning to see a winter wonderland, I was in my element.  I managed to take a few shots before I set off to work.


Now I didn’t get the chance to take an interesting picture on Wednesday 6th, so I’ve cheated and put another snowy one in.  But there is also the fact that I love the snow and can’t get enough of it. 🙂


You are probably wondering why I didn’t take more snowy pictures on Wednesday, well predictably the snow had melted by early afternoon on Tuesday, boo hoo 😦

As for Thursday, it was one of those nights busy on the computer, trying to catch up, so I’m afraid it’s another cat one.  I have 5 cats in total, so I can’t go far without a furry friend keeping me company.  This portrait is of Luna, she is just over a year old, and is mischief every minute she is awake :-).


Luna came into our lives a year ago when I was driving home late one night.  It was down one of the quiet, dark country roads that I spotted something in the middle of the road.  I slowed down waiting for it to move and nothing.  I realised by the shape of the ears it was a small kitten and would most certainly get killed if I didn’t move it.  So I got out of the car and thought that it would just scamper off, but no, she just sat there and looked at me purring like a drill.  She was very young, filthy and tiny, barely the size of my hand.  I wrapped her up and brought her home, where she has been ever since.  Now she is as spoilt as the others 😉

Between work and being absolutely shattered I didn’t manage a picture on Friday either (oops, not doing too well at this 😦 ).  But on Saturday was a different story.

I was invited to a photowalk at Glendalough House in Wicklow.  This was organised by the house and ‘Fran Byrne‘.  Now I’m not going into much detail at the moment as my next blog post will be about the day.  So here’s a little taster to keep you intrigued 😉

  1. interesting shots! i love Luna’s one the most 🙂

  2. Lovely color! I always wanted red hair…now I am steel colored grey!

    • Hi Babs, thanks for stopping by 🙂 Sadly I’ve had to give up the red for the moment as it was so hard to keep up with. My natural colour is blonde, although like yourself also a lot of grey now, so I’m in-between at the moment.
