PICTURE THIS CHALLENGE 178 - SOFT

Hi all, Marianne here from a cool and windy, but sunny South Africa. Typical December weather with rain and thunder storms, you never know if you are going to be hot, cold or worse......... wet this month. Our major month of rain, which we always need badly for the catchment dams to take us through the dry winter months, so not moaning. 

Being mushy brained at the moment ( no, don't say anything, I do know, at the best of times LOL)  battled with a theme for this week, had to ask boss man for help

The Theme is SOFT ........... can be anything from soft toys or soft snow to soft light or soft  beds or whatever soft you can think of .........I wish I had a soft ice , right now .......... *sniff*  ........... your choice, how you want to interpret it. 

You all know the soooo important rules. Only 3 photos please , watch your sizing, so page don't stretch and most importantly, please post from Flickr or Photobucket as we have limited space available here. Please do not upload directly from pc, camera or flashdrive. Copy and paste using said photo storage sites, using the HTML option on the blog. 

Here is mine:

1.  Santa's Beard is SOFT ( trust me , I know *smile*) :


    PT-Soft 2 


2.   My lunch today:.......soft juicy peach, papaya and banana with a delicious soft tangy  cheese:


Soft 3


3.   My darling, Her Royal Highness Princess Mousie Mouse is the softest cutest cuddliest cat : 


PT - Soft


I am posting early as today is our last official day in the office ( have to come back in next week Tuesday *groans*) ......... got things to do, people to see, places to go ............ hope to see all your "softies" over the weekend

Love you lots. Have Fun !!

  1. Hi Marianne, many thanks for hosting this week!! I see you manage to get organised eventually!! ~ducks flying cucumber~

    Great shots of ~SOFT~. Great shot of Santa's soft beard. I wonder who that is under there?? Your lunch of 'soft' fruits looks really delicious!! Reminds me of those oh-so-far-off summer days. Her Royal Highness may be cute, but she has on her 'we are not amused by having a camera stuck in our face' look on!!!! LOL.

  4. Cool photo of Santa. Soft beard and I also see very soft eye colour in a sweet face; love the whole meal... no high-calories; cats are my favourite pets so the cat photo is my favourite.

  5. Good old Santa, a good shot showing him as a softie. Good angle on the soft fruit dish and Princess Mousie at her best. I am sure she is smiling for the photo.

    1. try Flickr instead, Danette, I found it much easier and faster once I got the hang of it.

  10. Well, Marianne...:) I've never touched Santa's beard... but I believe you, it certainly is soft! Princess Mousie Mouse's hair is certainly "superlatively"
    soft and your plate makes me think I'm far from my 5 pieces of fruit or vegetables today... when I'm busy with my pictures I don't even take the time to eat!
