Flashback Friday #29

Older bloggers may remember a time when WordPress used to run a weekly photography challenge which many of us enjoyed. It was a great way to share photos and exchange comments and I am sure a lot of us made many blogging friends that way. Sadly it all came to an end on 31st May 2018. This was originally posted in 2016 when I was delighted to get my camera back from repair.

WPC: Detail

“Those bloggers who follow me on my flower blog will know that I am very fond of capturing the components in nature – last year I finally bought a camera with interchangeable lenses purely so that I could indulge in a macro lens. One that captures the tiniest details which I have used mainly for flower macros.

So this week’s photo challenge is right up my street. Literally!”

Rusty bolt

Do you ever really see the characteristics of a rusty item?

String caught in barbed wire

Or the way a fragment of fabric gets entangled in barbed wire?


Or how skilfully the craftsman edged his roof? Nature provides the lichens. When you look closely that’s when you notice those little, important, details.

This post is a contribution to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Have you got a post you wrote in the past on this particular day? The world might be glad to see it – either for the first time – or again if they’re long-time loyal readers.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Goodness, is it really as long ago as 2018 that that WP challenge ended? Anyway, love these images

  2. You made good use of that lens! Yes, the Photo Challenge was the first one I joined in with – but look what’s happened since ….

    1. Oh, yes. Life since 2018 has been different for sure. You back from Spain then? Must have been wonderful to see your daughter again and the new grandchild.

  3. I don’t remember that challenge, even if I was already a (young) blogger, but it’s sad it ended, I would have joined!

    1. They did used to provide some great inspiration. The Lens Artists are doing a good job though in filling the gap. Do you join in with their challenges?
