With the absence of the Weekly Photo Challenge (7.13pm GMT) yet I am quickly suffering from withdrawal symptoms, and hence am having a go instead at the appropriately timed Daily Prompt; Flawed.
The prompt suggested by Michelle W, asks what is your worst quality, in itself a contradiction. If it’s a quality, can it be a ‘worst?’.
In some ways my love of photography is my worst quality. As Mark Twain is incorrectly quoted ‘Golf is a good walk spoiled’, my family and (often Wilson) would say that me bringing my camera ruins a walk as I spend my time taking photos, and therefore according to them this means I am not enjoying the walk… But I am, I am just not participating in the walk in the same way as they are, but I love our walks!!
Having discovered the world of blogging I finally have an audience for my photos. I used to embarrass my children by putting loads of photos of them and me on Facebook, but the theme-driven approach to blogging is enabling me to present my photos old and new to a much more appreciative group!!
Below is a photo of me, taken by a fellow lover of photography during our trip to CERN in Switzerland, my quality of having a camera in my hand a huge amount of the time clearly on show!
I really am a fruitcake at the moment, I blame the pain medications! Yesterday was Thursday. I spent the whole day on the lookout for the Weekly photo challenge which comes out on Friday!!!

I think my family would agree with yours Barbara.
About living with a camera pinned to my face, or being a fruitcake…. Or both?
Well the first, but I don’t think they would disagree about the second either. 🙂
I have some great photos of them, especially in the snow, so I think they don’t mind so much afterwards…
I think it’s just turning round to say something to me and I’m either 50m away crouched low to capture a specific angle, or they turn to find the camera zoomed into their face… 🙂
When I get my new camera I will just have to go out alone!
I get asked, are you bringing your camera, haha. I do try and go without it sometimes though. However it is amazing how much they don’t mind me bringing the camera when they really want to go somewhere and they need me to go with them. 🙂
Lol, typical children!

I’ve always said that taking a picture is a very private moment. No one will ever be able to duplicate it again. Not at that moment in time. It belongs solely to you.
It’s funny, I have no idea what I was taking a photo of. (Oh dear I can hear my mum… never end a sentence with a proposition… I have no idea what it was I was photographing… ok mum?) We were in CERN, and we were seeing the ATLAS detector in the LHC 100m underground…. I was excited 🙂 This was a cleverly taken candid photo of me, but it could have been taken at any point through the trip!
Your mum is absolutely right. A preposition is never a good word to end a sentence with.
No it isn’t!
Though my children both think its a silly rule, I still get really uncomfortable reading sentences that end with prepositions and I have to correct them!
I don’t know how you wrote that without an apology straight afterwards!!
