5 in 5 - December 2014 - A WALK IN THE PARK

                                         Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of

 each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes. 
This week I went to the dentist.  I arrived early and rather than read a magazine in the waiting room I decided to take this opportunity and my camera and go for a short walk in the park.  As always when taking my 5 in 5 photos I set the alarm on my mobile as this keeps me focused and to time, besides, I didn't want to be late for my appointment!
I was so glad I made this choice over how to spend my time.  I would have missed this lovely fungi

these bright holly berries

and this lovely seat.

There were lots of leaves on the ground

but some trees still held their colour and brightened my day.

When I got home and downloaded these photos I saw a similarity from photos that I took last year at the end of December. '5 in 5' photos of a walk, with a bench and my feet planted on the ground. The heavy frost in those photos makes me appreciate how mild it has been so far this year although we are warned things are to change. And while finding the link I also saw this post where I had written about the importance of taking opportunities as they arise.  A reminder to myself, and maybe you too.

If you are inspired to get out your camera and join in the '5 in 5' photo challenge here is the plan:

1.  Choose a location.

2.  Have your camera ready.

3.  Set a timer for 5 minutes (I use my mobile phone).

4.  Take as many photos you can until the time is up.

5.  Choose 5 photos to download and share by using the link tool below.
     You have until the 25th of the month to add your photos.

There are more details here.

And one more thing - when you use the link tool, please click on your post title.  This will show the web address. Please right click, copy and paste this as your link.  This will take readers directly to your '5 in 5' blog page and be easier for them to find.

And don't forget, you have until 25th to post your link!
Thank you for popping by.  Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.
