Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 – Fresh

“Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to a day that’s clean and fresh right through?”

Those are the words from a commercial for some washing powder. Who doesn’t like to feel fresh after a good night’s sleep or inhale some wonderful fresh mountain air?

I’ve featured this photo on my blog before and it proved to be quite a hit.

Hugh's Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 - Fresh

This fresh fruit salad was prepared by my partner. When I saw it I had to take the photo. Not only did the colours make it look fresh but it tasted delicious and was a great start for the fresh day ahead of me.

For this week’s challenge, we’re getting fresh. What does it mean to you? Maybe it’s the smell and image of freshly baked bread or freshly brewed coffee? Maybe it’s the early morning dew on the grass or the sight of an undisturbed fresh fall of snow?

Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.

1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which, for you, depicts Fresh.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 – “Fresh”
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a *pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view the post.

*As Pingbacks have not been working on WordPress over the last few days, I recommend anyone joining this week’s challenge to leave a link to their post in the comments section.

Last week’s challenge produced lots of entries and was all about what Solitude meant to you. Unfortunately, Pingbacks have not been working across WordPress over the last few days, so I may have missed some of your entries. Apologies if that is the case. Here are the five entries I’ve decided to showcase this week.

Mel, at Melissa Barker Simpson, showed us some beautiful photos of both the beach and her garden. She gets some great solitude moments at both and even invited me around for a glass of wine to take in the solitude of the garden. I’m saving that for when the weather improves.

Helen, at Photophile, showed us a photo of a figure enjoying a solitude moment. Just by looking at him you can tell he is really enjoying the moment. A great take on the challenge.

Josip, at Josip Rosandic Photography, posted a photo that was taken when the person in it did not know it was being taken even though she was posing for it. For me, it shows the other side of what solitude means.

Julz, at Julie Powell – Photographer & Graphic Artist, produced another great photo of somebody enjoying a solitude moment. What I like about this photo is the emptiness it contains. I wonder if his mind was empty at the time the photo was taken?

Kim, at Ramblings of K, produced a stunning photo of somebody else having a solitude moment. You have to check this photo out for the colours it contains. It’s a true beauty and one which fits the challenge extremely well.

Thank you to everyone that entered photos for the challenge.

Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Monday 18th April 2016 and I’ll showcase five entries when announcing the next challenge. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Have fun!

  1. A fresh photo indeed, Hugh. I spy some Mandarins in that bowl of breakfast. I love them and hope they were sweet. Love the colourful placement on your table. It certainly gives off a cheery vibe. Like you, I like waking up feeling fresh and breathing in fresh air. I really like sleeping with the window open to get that fresh air circulating all night long and into the morning as I sleep. Pity I can’t do that in the winter months 😀

    I read your post on gay nightlife in London on Geoff’s blog. It was a great read and I left a comment 🙂


    1. Thank you very much, Mabel.

      I always have to have a window open when I sleep, even during the Winter. I think having fresh air circulating does aid sleep.

      The fruit salad was delicious. It tastes so much better when prepared by somebody else.

      Thank you for reading my guest post. I love writing about my memories, and when Geoff asked me to write a post for him as part of the A to Z challenge he is doing, I could not resist. 😀
