Ese’s Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: 17 Memories

DSCF0272DSCF0260

Good morning from a sunny, but dodgy looking morning in Hastings.

This weeks challenge by Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge is memories.

Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.

These photos were taken last winter and have not been edited.  I have just added a frame and watermark.  The images were dramatic enough without needing anything added.

Good morning from a sunny but dodgy looking Hastings.

I am so excited.  This morning, Black Friday, is a good morning for me.  I have just checked my emails and found that I had won an award with this photo on the website http://www.viewbug.com.  I was totally surprised to get a Judges Favourite award.  WOW.  I am totally overwhelmed that this was my first ever competition and among thousands of photos this one was picked out.

I want to thank Sonel and Amanda ♥ Unique So Chic for their encouragement in the Split Toning Challenge.  This was one of the photos I edited for that challenge.

This has made my day before it has even started.
