Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29 – Open

Open wide! Those are the words I don’t like hearing when visiting the dentist. On the other hand, when I’m dashing to the shop because I’ve run out of chocolate on movie night, I’m so relieved when I see the shop door still open wide.

I took this photo a few weeks ago before boarding a steam train and taking a journey back to the past.

Hugh's Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29 - Open

I don’t know about you but I always find an open door a very welcoming sign. I’ve even sat and watched two shops, one with its door open and the other with its door closed, and watched which shop got the most customers going through the door. No surprise as to which one won.

This week, show me some photos of what ‘open’ means to you. Maybe it will be an open door or gate, somebody opening that large gift, or a photo of a wide open space? How about an open packet of biscuits or an establishment or event that is open for business?

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

1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which interprets Open.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29 – ‘Open’
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 and/or leave a link to your post in the comments section so other participants can view the post.

*Due to the current problem WordPress is experiencing with Pingbacks (read the post here), I’d highly recommend that you copy and paste a link to your entry into the comments section of this post.

I thought I set you all a tough challenge last week when I chose the word ‘Glorious.’ How wrong was I? Very wrong! You came up with a great selection of photos and I was once again truly amazed by all the entries. I’m showcasing six entries this week.

Ed, at Ed Lehming Photography, shows us just how glorious a little bit of sunlight can be. This is a stunning photograph which Ed says is one of the most glorious scenes he has witnessed. Check it out and tell him what you think.

Tony, at Son Of A Beach 96, shared photos that contain wonderful colours. Sunsets and sunrises were a popular choice for many of you this week and Tony captured them brilliantly.

Terri, at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives, not only shared some of her glorious photography, but she also included some glorious quotes. I guarantee that both will brighten up any dull day.

Georgie, at Third Time Lucky!, was another who stunned me with her photos of sunsets and sunrises. The photos go a very long way in showing Mother Nature at her very best. You’ll be amazed, as much as I, with these captures.

Ruth, at Image & Word, shows us all just how glorious wash day can be. I never thought any type of housework could be glorious, but Ruth proved me very wrong with the photo she entered.

Debby, at D. G. Kaye, got a glorious photo while traveling back from a glorious day out. Again, stunning colours in the photograph courtesy of Mother Nature when she smiles back at us.

Thank you to everyone that entered photos for the challenge. Apologies if I never got around to visiting your entry due to the pingback problem.

Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Monday 20th June 2016. I’ll showcase at least five entries when announcing the next challenge. Have fun!

      1. Thanks Hugh. It was a great day and we followed up with a bigger celebration on the weekend. Everyone says that he doesn’t look 90. He’s never looked his age, which is probably why the recruiters told him to go and join the boy scouts the first time he tried to sign up in WWII.
