‘…and they all lived happily ever after.’
I remember those words so well. In fact, along with ‘Once upon a time…’ they must be words that many of us remember reading during our childhood. A few songs that include the word ‘after’ also come to mind, but you wouldn’t want to hear me sing! I may be Welsh (aren’t Welsh people supposed to be good singers?), but I never trod in the footsteps of my father who, for many years, sang in a Welsh Male Voice Choir.
This week’s theme is all about the word ‘After.’ Here’s my example of what it means to me.
Who doesn’t like seeing a rainbow in the sky after a rainstorm? Although it’s not a very good photo, I was so excited about seeing a double rainbow that I took the photo quickly before one or both of these wonderful curved creations disappeared.
This week, show me a photo that captures the word After. Maybe it’s a pop group or cast of a show taking a bow after their performance, or how about somebody taking a well-earned rest after a hard day’s work? Maybe you have some photos that capture the before and after of a project you completed, or of a scene that captures the result of the aftermath of a rainstorm or of lots of visitors?
Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.
1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which interprets After.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 30 – ‘After’
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.

On to last week’s challenge which got you thinking about the endless possibilities for the word Open. Here are the five entries I’ve chosen to showcase.
Willow, at WillowDot21, takes us on a walk to a wide open space. This is the place she walks her dog and I can’t blame her for visiting it. You’ve only got to look at what’s on offer to see why this place is one of her favourites.
Carol, at Retired? No One Told Me!, not only shows us some open arms that come with a lot of happy memories, but she also shared a spectacular action shot that captures the theme brilliantly. Check them out and tell her what you think.
Claudette, at To Search And To Find, had me in rolling around the room with laughter. Take a look at the fun photo she shared for the challenge and tell me if this doesn’t capture the humour we all love to see.
Miriam, at Out an’ About, not only shared lots of photos of the theme, but she wrote a very thought proking post to go with them. Not only is this a must-see, but it’s also a must-read post.
Sonyavdg, at Middleton Road, goes all cute with us and shares a photo that I guarantee will make you smile. Captures like this always make very popular viewing and when you see the photo you’ll know what I mean.
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 27th June 2016. I’ll showcase at least five entries when announcing the next challenge. Have fun!
