Blog Lovin' (or not)

I do a lot of hopping around people's blogs and follow quite a few.
With Google Reader disappearing soon, I tried Blog Lovin' but wasn't a fan.
A friend mentioned another blog following app, Feedly, which she had downloaded ready to try out.

I can honestly say that it is still not as good a s Reader but I am getting on with it much better than Blog Lovin'

Anyway, blog following is a great way to get ideas, join in hops and other weekly/monthly challenges.

Reading Jemma's blog post had me hopping over to Gallo Organico and the following post...

Hop on over and take a look at the the list.
What a great challenge!!!

Here is my first photo...


#9 A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong

I took this photograph yesterday whilst on a trip with my Mum.
These padlocks are attached to the chain links  alongside the River Mersey in Liverpool and each one has a message engraved on it to signify a memory.

I spent a while reading the messages, which included marriages, deaths and births.
What a beautiful way to record a memory
