Cone or tub? – One word Sunday Challenge: Speciality.

This week Debbie  challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own speciality post.

Hmm, wondering if I can get away with this ‘speciality’ post. . . it is certainly a speciality of ours to hunt down ice cream while taking a break, and we certainly attempt to find speciality flavours where ever possible, favourites having been ‘Irn Bru’, ‘Newcastle Brown ale’, & ‘Christmas pudding’, to be fair, can you have a bad ice cream?

Now that sign in the background would certainly be a ‘Speciality’ ice cream!

Even when it is cold – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #73 – Cold

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

We look forward to seeing your interpretation of “cold”. It could be snow and ice, or a frosty window pane, or even your favourite flavor of ice cream!

Well since you mention it – even the cold and wet doesn’t put us off our holiday ice cream!  2014 so I cannot remember what the flavours where – though the record will be somewhere on my facebook page!  Anyway all Ice cream is our favourite!

Double treats – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #69 – Seeing Double

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Double trouble, double-time, two’s company, take two …. the world is filled with references to twosomes. This week, let’s double our pleasure and focus on things that come in twos.

So another in the ‘wife holds ice cream’ series, just to make sure you all know, one of these ice creams is destined for me, can you guess which one is mine?  The clue might be the fact that I have a sizeable moustache and beard.

Ice Cream – A Photo a Week Challenge: Traditions.

This week  Nancy has challenged us with the following:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS SHOWING A TRADITION YOU HAVE.

Ever since we had our honeymoon it has become tradition that we share photos of any Ice cream we eat with our friends on Facebook, it is also now tradition that we do not share the flavours until we are asked what they are by a particular friend.

Indulgence – Friday Foto Fun: Luxury

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share your version of luxury in a photo, poem or story?

A little luxury that we often indulge in while on holiday, or when we have a day out is to have an ice cream.  It has become common practice over on facebook to post pictures of my wife holding the ‘ice cream of the day’, something we started doing nine years ago while on honeymoon.  Flavours are listed, we try them so you do not have to, (you can if you want), the oddest flavours have to have been ‘Irn Bru’ and ‘Newcastle brown ale’, not together I hasten to add!

So a photo taken in Cornwall, featuring the lush ‘Moomaid’ icecream, and I think the flavours were, salted caramel, and blackberry sorbet.

Cones for Kings and Queens – Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -13- Dining

This week Bren challenged us to submit a monochrome image based on the theme of Dining.

Anybody who looks through the archive of photos I have taken, and indeed a look back over some previous blog posts, would think that while on holiday we survive on ice cream, so not to dissuade you from those thoughts.

Ice cream and rainbows – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Rainbow Color

This week for her challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Rainbow Colors (must have at least 4 different colors in your photo) and there is no specific topic.

As soon as I saw the challenge I thought that I must use a photo of my lovely wife wearing rainbow colours, and I expect most of our friends would think the same when presented with the topic of rainbow.
