The Photo Gallery:World Photography Day….

Over at The Gallery this week the theme is World Photography day and we have been set a challenge to take a photo to treasure for generations to come.

As my husband was at work and my older boys were out for the day we didn’t have anywhere exciting to go…

So I made up a challenge to visit 5 parks in 5 hours….

After the first one we were very hungry and popped back home for some lunch….

I was tired then and hoped they had forgot the challenge I had set them but no after some food they were set for the next park….

Being a hot day the parks were full so we found a few quite spots for photos…

A quick run on the track….

Asit on the park watching the ducks…

Then off to the next park….

Then at last we made it to the 5th park….

And they did it 5 parks in 5 hours…

This day we will remember for years to come ….

Now lets see what everyone else did to celebrate World Photography Day over at The Gallery.

    What a fabulous idea! Plus you got some beautiful photographs. I love how you have given that sepia effect which already adds the illusion of nostalgia! x
