2018 Friday Photo Challenge (Week 1) New Beginnings


Hello there and welcome to this, the first 2018 Friday Photo Challenge.

Last year I really enjoyed being part of a weekly photo challenge which was organised by Wild Daffodil and Nana Cathy. Each week, we were given a one word prompt to use to inspire a photograph based blog post. This year (after several years spent organising other photo challenges) they have decided not to carry on with this on a weekly basis. Sandra at Wild Daffodil is now hosting a Monthly Meet-Up instead.

That left me with a yearning for a weekly photo challenge for this year, so I decided to come up with my own. It will (all being well) happen on a Friday – hence the name, and I would love it if you would like to join in too. At the end of this post, you will find the list of prompts for each of the 52 weeks of the year. All you need to do is publish your post and tag me in it. That way I can keep track of anyone who’s joining in and I can share your lovely posts with everyone else. If you don’t have a blog and want to join in on Instagram, just use the hashtag #postcardfromgibfridayphoto

There’s absolutely no pressure, if you don’t want to commit to every week, that’s fine. Just dip in and out as you fancy.

So here’s my first entry for the 2018 Friday Photo Challenge. It’s the photo I took as we drove back home towards Gibraltar after a few lovely days along the coast in Spain. We drove back on New Year’s Day morning full of enthusiasm and raring to go. A fresh start and a New Year.

If you aren’t familiar with this part of the world, Gibraltar is the great big rock standing in the distance to the right hand-side of the photo, the mountains in the back ground stand across the Strait of Gibraltar in Morocco in northern Africa.

Here’s the list of prompts for the 2018 Friday Photo Challenge:

  1. What a great list! Thank you for joining in with me and Cathy last year and for the link to the new Monthly Meet-Up. I have a photo in mind for New Beginnings as Attic24’s CAL starts today. In fact I’ve just seen Lucy has posted the First Part – so I’m gong to rush off anf make a start – picture later! Eeeek! Fun!

    1. It was my pleasure Sandra, I loved the challenge last year. It gave me structure to my blogging week and kept me posting during weeks when I didn’t have the time for self-generated posts. I also loved the excuse to go looking for photos to fit certain prompts.
      Enjoy your CAL, I love Lucy’s work and have taken part in one of her CALs before – although I got mine finished about 12 months after she did!! I love the colours she has chosen for the woodland blanket and shall watch with interest as yours and hers grows!
