    Well done everyone for this year – we have reached the last week of this year’s challenge!!!!



    I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed in the challenge this year, the post count in the weekly challenge has been excellent, and it does takes dedication to post regularly.

    The new challenge will start again next week for 2017, when the first four subjects will be posted as normal

    Merry Christmas to all, and looking forward to seeing some great entries again next year

    ......................

    Welcome to this week’s weekly challenge, the theme of which is Age

    52. Week ending 30/12/16 Age
    Anyone is welcome to join in!!

    *The rules of the competition are posted below*​

    The Weekly Challenge competition is a fun to enter weekly run thread where a new photographic subject is posted each Saturday and you have a week to complete the photographic theme, the closing date of which will be indicated in each weekly thread posted.

    You are able to join in at any time during the year, just post into the thread to get started.

    If you are not able to post in that week, it does not mean you cannot join in the following week.

    You can also post an image that is relevant from your archives if you cannot get out to do the picture in that week.

    It is a fun competition, and there are no prizes, just a thread to get us out taking pictures. The competition runs for a year, and at the end of the year, it will start again with new themes.



    info: a JOKER week is a subject that is suggested by a member of the forum.

    Many thanks from me to @hooferinsane for keeping us all challenged again this year.

    I have managed somehow to complete every week this year so would like to offer my congratulations to all others who have submitted every week.
    And to everyone else who has submitted through out the year I have enjoy looking at all the varied interpritations of themes its great fun.

    So for my final week of 2016 this is an old picture of my Nan who would have been 92 years of age when I took this photo.
    Sadly she passed away just 7 weeks ago at the age of 96 after a short illness.
    A great woman who reached a great AGE!

    Merry Christmas All and a Happy 2017!
    Best Wishes Simon

    Nannie and Grandad, circa 1950. My father took the photo - I've scanned it. Sorry it's not my own pic, but I wasn't born yet;)...

    My dad died earlier this year, aged 95, so it's my first year in 68 years without him, kinda sad. He loved his cars, he had one when he was 17 years old - here he is as a seventeen year old in 1937. Guess this is the equivalent of a Corsa with a huge exhaust, LOL.

    Just putting this out there ...

    I'm always being told to "act my age", but I'm not sure what exactly that means or what I'm doing wrong.

    My mother and father's wedding in 1955. George is the man fourth from the left and the man just to his left is the scout in the earlier photo.
    The bride is the lady with a child in my earlier post (Great grandmother with great granddaughter).
