Please note:- This week I am running a Giveaway. The rules are simple. Drop a comment on any of this week's postings (Saturday 3rd to Saturday 10th inclusive) and I'll draw out the winner on Sunday 11th. The winner will receive one of the books shown in my Giveaway post on Sunday. I look forward to all your comments.
Kay (Georgia Girl with an English Heart) very kindly gave me the Versatile Blogger Award recently.
You are supposed to list seven facts about yourself but Jenny Woolf had a great idea and she posted some photos that really told a lot about her. I've spent my whole life behind a camera so I am following suit.
I'm interested in family history. (This is my Dad's dad shortly before he died in 1908 at the age of 33. He was a policeman in Liverpool.)
I am proud of being from Liverpool and support Liverpool Football Club. This is a programme from the days when I kept one from each match I attended. I gave them away years ago which is quite unlike me because I am a terrible squirrel. (Do you remember the days when what you saw through the viewfinder was not what the lens took - especially if you were really close. This was the result; you cut bits off!)
The other sport I am really keen on is Formula One motor racing. There is nothing quite so exciting as the sound of twenty Formula One engines revving up on the start line. This photo was of Damon Hill during a trip to Silverstone in the 1990s.
The first camera I used, around 1963 (one of my Dad's). It took 112 film – a size that was hard to get even in those days.
I love finding and identifying moths. Moths are the ones which usually fly at night and have no clubs on their antennae but, contrary to popular opinion many of them are just as wonderfully colourful as butterflies.
And finally, I'm not averse to wearing silly hats when the occasion demands. This was taken about ten years ago and shows my Dad in the background. Partner-who-drinks-tea is the one draped lovingly around my shoulders.
The Versatile Blogger award is then offered to seven other bloggers I consider worthy of it. I've excluded family and Friend-über-special and other close friends as that didn't seem fair but even then it's hard. Oh dear, this could turn out to be a list of blogs I follow... I know some people don't 'do' awards (I, too, stopped for a long time). So I shall simply say that these seven blogs below are well worth visiting and most decidedly deserve the Award. If they wish to collect it and tell us seven things about themselves they are most welcome to do so. If not, I hope they will simply accept that I love their blogs!
Fhina, A Woman of No Importance (a misnomer if ever there was one)
Emille at Artistique
Jedediah at Ook, she wrote
Therapists, librarians, there's an obvious theme emerging here...
Chris J at Flamblogger
Heather T's Imagery (I can't exclude all my friends)
Amy at Sharp Little Pencil (You might think poetry and stories are not 'versatile' but since the subjects are wide-ranging I think she definitely qualifies).
Adrian of Adrian's images.
I hope you visit one or two of these bloggers and I'm sure you'll agree they are Versatile!
