Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 27 – ‘Vintage’

It is Hugh’s Photo Challenge again! Back after a 2 week hiatus!

3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section so other participants can view the post.

Being in Finland at the moment, I really wanted to take a photo of something here. I saw some amazing vintage cricket balls in an antique shop we passed, but my camera and phone battery had died at the time, so no photo taken there!

This whole trip has been about ‘vintage’, as we celebrate my Pops reaching that grand old age of 70, and him still being a sprightly soul!

But I found this one, and it made me think of ‘vintage’ high heels! I used a mild sepia filter on the photo to give it a slightly aged look! It was a great flower display holder made of twine and wire!


No matter how big,
Or even how small
Women love shoes
Oh, we love em all!
Old ones or new ones
Tall ones or short
We’ve all lost count
Of the amount we’ve bought
Skyscraper high
Or ballet pump low ones
Or beautiful vintage
You never could wear ones
It’s just an addiction
That we cannot help
Even if sometimes
They make us yelp!

It may be slightly off kilter today, but that’s what you get from a tired brain, who has spent an hour tending to a vomiting daughter! Never easy when you aren’t home, but the hotel staff have been wonderful!

    Good for him. I’m not a fan of cricket, but it always means long sunny days (well, mostly).

    Sorry to hear about your daughter being unwell, Ritu. I hope she gets better soon. Belated Happy 70th Birthday to your Pops 🎂
    Vintage cricket balls in Finland? What a great find. I never knew they played Cricket in Finland, but maybe they do?
    The shoe plant display is a great idea. I’m sure many gay men (like myself) would love a display like that outside their front door. 😀
