My Captured Moment #15

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

This week I’m sharing a series of pictures I took on my iPhone at Polesden Lacey last weekend. Polesden Lacey is a breathtakingly beautiful National Trust house near us, here is Surrey. As you can see the weather was perfect and the house and grounds were just stunning! It is said that Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother called the place ‘a delicious house…’ when she honeymooned here back in 1923 – and having visited, (twice recently) I can totally understand her why!

I also took this fuzzy shot after getting home. As you can see a little someone had worn herself out (with all that running around) and had to be carried in from the car…


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.

    Sorry, I’m a bit late with comments this week! But I love the photo of your littlest girl asleep on your shoulder – good to know you sometimes get sleepy cuddles past the early days too.
