Photo Challenge # 3 - the number 5

I know ..... I know .... I am in early this week. Feeling a bit under the weather (just a cold) and want to get it out of the way so I can go relax and read. I had fun though .... taking my last ones just a few minutes ago on this cold and drizzly Saturday morning. So here we go, five photos for the five challenge ...

Here is one from the gardens last week. A bit of cheating. Here I am with my "dynamic framing" (thanks Lotti) once more. But I liked how this one turned out. Five? .... five boards across the bridge.
I also remembered Hugh's football jumper! I sewed on the nunber 5!Woohoo!
Here is me sitting in Den's car. These are the dials on his dashboard. Hehehehe.
I could not let a challenge such as this go by without some recognition to the "Famous Five" by Enid Blyton. I grew up on these books (these are my copies) and love them. Can't wait to share them with Hugh when he is old enough. So FIVE books on the Famous Five.
Finally our clock face!

So there you have it! Thanks for looking. We may be off to the circus tomorrow. Yes ... the circus is back in town with my gorgeous elephants. So hopefully as my Den says, "Mummy needs to get her click fix each weekend" tomorrow will be that day. I also have to share with you Chonka's new nickname that Den gave her this morning. As my dear friend Wendy has termed it, Katie has "meltdown moments" M&M's LOL!! - a lot more recently too might I add. This morning as she was panicing over some misplaced thing, Den walks in and says, "Don't worry Meltdown Missy ... we'll find it". Hahahahaha! What a Chonka!

Oh Helen the photos were great, very creative Ma'am. I love the lighting. I really need to practice my lighting, that is with natural light. This has been a interesting challenge...I am still laughing though over the "meltdown Missy" name...that is good!! Just too darn funny!! Sometimes I look at Michael when he is having a meltdown and think I created that monster, lol...do you ever think that too?

First I hope your feeling better soon!!! Colds just suck!!

Secondly, I love your "5" pics! I especially love the angle on your clock face, and also the angle on the first photo of Katie. I've got nothing.... AGAIN.

Great story about "Meltdown Missy" though I think I prefer Chonka myself!! LOL

oooooooooooookay, NOW I'm inspired to do a better job on that whole '5' thing! OH MY H, these photos are fantastic... and the shots of Hughie and Katie after Auskick (soccer?)... he is growing up so well. What a responsible, little man. *sigh* You're a lucky mum!
