Thursday’s Special: Gold inside (response to guest challenge)

When I got the idea of inviting fellow bloggers to participate on my blog as guest photo challengers I honestly did not believe that I would manage to gather such a group of amazing talented photographers. I am particularly honoured and happy to have Ron participate today with his Gold inside theme. Please have a look at the linked post and show us what “gold inside” means to you.

My response to this challenge is an abstract close-up captured by shooting through holes of a small plastic container for clothes pegs.

    • I’m happy that you think so, Colline. I think it has the pop art feel about it πŸ™‚ Thank you.


  1. This is an excellent challenge. I like your interpretation. I’ll be back with mine soon. Cheers. Suzanne


    • Happy to hear you like it, Suzanne. I love your choice – it shows your sense of true adventure even when it makes you less than comfortable. Kudos to you!

    • πŸ™‚ Thank you, Meg. I thought of you during my holiday wondering how you liked being a guest in my country. I do it once in about 10 years and every time I wonder if things will finally get better and if people will adopt some of the hospitality and charm that Italians have. Anyway, it has been a break that I needed though very short and now we are having 16 degrees and rain in the middle of the summer and at work my bosses have piled extra work for me, but I am not complaining just explaining why I haven’t been to your place as yet. See you in a bit.


      • Stay relaxed in the face of weather, work and bosses! It sounds as if you had a great break.

        I loved being a guest in your country. My three Airbnb hosts were beyond charming, and the pharmacist too. My only complaint was a cappuccino that was all fluff and no coffee! Easily fixed with an espresso with more coffee than ever before.

        You’re welcome at my place, whenever you fancy. But only then, and obligation-free.


  2. Welcome back to the blog sphere Paula. I have missed your challenges but I hope your time away was a good one. I just checked out Ron’s post: Wow! Time to step out of my comfort zone and find some gold inside…..till then Peace~ John

  4. I had a peak before I linked, of course, but I’ve just come back and put the soundtrack on. What a ‘tour de force’, Paula! πŸ™‚ I love the conception, and as ever, like your style πŸ™‚ Brilliant!
    As I explained I was already writing my post in my head when you advised me of the theme so sadly it does not relate to the golden hour, but I hope you’ll like it anyway.


    • Yours is a perfectly apt response to Ron’s theme. Thank you, Jo! It felt nice to remember your first post about Delaval Hall, and to see it now in its full glory. I’m glad you like my take on the gold inside πŸ˜€ I like Neil Young and his harmonica – definitely uplifting.

    • You are right. Gold should be used more often. At first glance I thought that these mosaics were much older. Thank you for your beautiful entry.

  8. Brilliant topic.
    I have no idea what Im going to come up with yet. But I love your interpretation Paula. And it is going to be great fun looking at everyone else’s contributions this week.


  9. Love the swiss cheese image through a peg basket πŸ˜‰ I have a shot of pegs in a peg basket that I quite like… it’s cool to find such an abstract shot in such a simple thing. Cool challenge!

    • It feels good to be back and see warming entries like yours my Pommepal πŸ™‚ I am really proud to have Ron’s as guest here and I am happy that my readers had the opportunity to discover a great photographer. Thank you so much for your extremely apt response. It is lovely.


    • Thank you, dear Tish. It seems like a long time ago with so much waiting for me at work and here. I will do my best to catch up soon.

    • πŸ™‚ this is seriously the best entry so far. I have a very good recollection of how tasty fiori di zucca fritti are though it’s been ages since I had them. Very well photographed BT. Thank you for your entry.


    • Oh my, I’ve just realised that golden fried fiori di zuccha were not for my challenge, but the mask in the window.
