My challenge is my passion – a photo you have taken and a quote, attributed to its author, and of course related to your image. Every week on Sunday I will post a new prompt.
And…I will be sending a few of you a free copy of my book, Butterfly Thy Name, each week, in due course – when it’s finished!
Everyone’ s welcome to join! All you have to do is:
– create a post of your own with the title Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Beginning;
– include a link to this post also for others to find you.
Let your ideas flow and enjoy! Ese
Prompt 1 – BEGINNING
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. /Lao Tzu/
Burgas Sand Festival, Bulgaria
Everything is still ahead…
Beginning…all the way down in Porto, Portugal

Great quote & stunning photos, Ese. My favorite is the last one of Porto? I’ve never been but I MUST visit at some point. I’ve always been about the journey rather than the destination.
Thank you for the invitation to join the challenge – Time permitting, I will see if I can come up with something. And if not I definitely look forward to seeing the great submissions here.

What a wonderful challenge and great images, Ese! I love both photographs and quotes, so here’s my interpretation of “beginning,” flowers just beginning to blossom. http://schelleycassidy.wordpress.com/2013/08/21/eses-weekly-shoot-quote-challenge-beginning/ 🙂
