After – Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 30 – After
invites us to share images of what ‘After’ means to us.

Hugh says:

‘…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, Hugh wants us to show him 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 in 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.

Here are a few images of what “after” means to me.

Here are Spice & Sugar – all cleaned up after their grooming appointment!

I hope you enjoyed my take on “After.” I hope to see you all again!

Time to start editing my book! 😀

  1. Gorgeous pics and Sugar and Spice look a million dollars each at least. Good luck with the editing!

    • I am really getting excited, Olga. Soon I will need Beta readers! 😀 My little girls have dog-heimers… At 12 years old they are starting to slow down! I’m glad you enjoyed. <3

  2. Coleen;
    The after the storm is my favourite. All that snow! Makes you appreciate summer 🙂

  3. They are adorable, Colleen. I hope after the photo was taken they didn’t decide to go and rub into anything nasty? What a snow storm that looks to have been. Lovely to see a fresh fall of undisturbed snow, though.

    • Thanks, Hugh! Sugar will stay pristine, while Spice, on the other hand… she will stink in another day! LOL! She is such a tom-boy! I have been writing so much it has been hard getting some new photos. We hope to visit Garden of the Gods next week and I will be able to share something a bit more interesting! LOL! Thanks for hosting, Hugh. You are a gem! <3

  4. Lovely afters, Colleen, most of all your two sweethearts!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
