My Captured Moment #17

Welcome to My Captured Moment, a weekly linky where I share my favourite ‘Captured Moments’ and invite you to do the same.

This week My Captured Moment is a shot that was taken of me back in 2009. My husband and I were on holiday in the South of France and staying at a beautiful little hotel with the most amazing infinity pool. Every time I see this picture, I’m transported back to that pool and stunning view.

That evening, over dinner, my husband (then boyfriend) proposed.


Share your Moments

Your ‘My Captured Moment’ can be a single picture or a series of shots, new (taken this week) or old, with or without words. The idea is to simply share a moment in time you’ve captured on your camera and make sure it doesn’t go unseen. This could include vintage shots of your own childhood and beyond or a simple picture you’ve recently taken and want to ‘show off’.

How to Play Along

• Link up every Thursday to Sunday (ending at 11.55pm)

• Add my badge (or link back to my website using #MyCapturedMoment) at the bottom of your post.

• Share the love – try to comment on at least three other posts. After all that’s what it’s all about.

Go Social

Tweet your posts to me @HeleddLavender using the hashtag #MyCapturedMoment and I’ll retweet. Hashtag your picture #MyCapturedMoment on Instagram (follow me @HeleddLavender) so we can share our pictures and hopefully get some new followers and likes.

    I love those pictures taken just before something wonderful and life-changing happens. They really take you back to the emotion of that time. A lovely memory and a fab photo x

    That is a beautiful picture and like Katie, I knew something wonderful was about to happen but, it still made me gasped when I read it. What an absolutely beautiful moment to captured, he knew what he was doing that day in more ways than one! Thank you for hosting x

    Aww so romantic! The pool looks amazing! Perfect environment for an engagement! Even tough I’m guessing he didn’t propose in the pool…

    What a beautiful picture. Did you know he was taking it or was it just a spur of the moment picture. A beautiful picture to go with a special memory x
