365 Photo Challenge – Week 5

Week five! How fast it goes.

It’s been a wild week for us, and I had a million opportunities for photos so I took my camera with me every time we stepped out the door. The door of the apartment, the metro, the train, the bus, the B&B, the Guest House, the pub, the cafe and the ferry.

Here are my two favorites of the week:

Through the Rain Shetland ponies on Shetland Island

Through the Fire Torches fight the wind during Up Helly Aa

And speaking of photos, I was lucky enough to have two of my photos from Up Helly Aa featured by Instagram! One was the photo of the torches you see above, and the other was this one of the Jarl Squad during the morning of Up Helly Aa:

Aaaaaayyy!

 

What an honor, and a surprise! As I sipped my coffee on the ferry Friday morning after our overnight journey back to Aberdeen I was shocked to see that I had gained over two hundred new Instagram followers overnight (and counting, more are pouring in all the time), and several of my photos had collected over two hundred ‘likes’. If you’ve just come over to this blog because you saw us over there, welcome! I hope you stick around for a while, and I hope you’ll share some of your photos with us!

How did your week go? Add a link and share your favorite photo from this past week below. Make sure to link to the blog post on which it’s featured, and not just to your blog’s main page. If you’re photos are hosted elsewhere (Flickr, Instagram, Picasa, etc.)  just add the link to that photo’s specific page.

Remember to visit the other linked sites and leave some comment love. We all like to get a bit of recognition for our work, don’t we?

Thanks for linking up! I hope you all had a fantastic week.

        Our B&B hostess was shocked to find out that I had my very own Shetland pony when I was little. His name was Buttons, and he was my first horse. I loved him! He was the reason I made a point to get some photos of Shetland ponies on Shetland. It felt like I had come full circle. So stinkin’ cute!

        Yay for linking up!
