This week's theme was: Bokeh

"Bokeh" is just the Japanese for "fuzzy" or "blurry", but it sounds so much better in another language.

I had hoped to find a more interesting flower, but a good old dandelion had to serve as the subject. Actually, on looking at it more carefully, it might not be a dandelion and might be something like a coltsfoot. But either way it's not terribly rare or interesting.

Taken on my cycle ride along the Mawddach trail yesterday.

This week's theme was: My passion

Well, this is a very feeble attempt to portray my passion about... well, about what? I honestly don't feel I'm all that passionate about anything, though I am often doggedly determined about things.

Anyway, this will have to do in order to represent my love of being outdoors on a sunny May day, my love of Wales and its landscape and my love of photography.
