A snapshot of my life in black and white

Those who are on Facebook might have seen a meme going around recently asking people to post seven black and white photos of your life over seven days. No people. No explanations and then every day, challenge someone new. My friend B, nominated me and I couldn’t resist. Yesterday was my last day so I thought I would share my seven photos with you lot as well. I am presenting them with no explanation so feel free to guess… and also to join in…

Day 1

Day 3


Day 4


Day 5


Day 6


Day 7



  1. I think I know Holden House, round the back of Oxford St?
    The Christmas lights looks like a county town centre somewhere, maybe Colchester?
    I’m guessing the ‘looking back’ view of the City is from a train window?
    I like the mushroom shot a lot.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I worked in Holden House, which is indeed off Oxford Street, for 9 years and I was in the vicinity earlier this week. Filled me with nostalgia.

      You’re extremely close on the Christmas lights. It’s Chelmsford town centre.

      The city view is from my desk at work.

      And the mushrooms were delicious. We had them with chicken in a creamy mustard sauce.

      Excellent guesses.

      1. Thanks, Abbi. I haven’t been to Chelmsford for donkey’s years. I think I recall having to do an ambulance job in Holden House, also a long time ago. I later remembered that it is in Rathbone Place too.
        Best wishes, Pete.

        1. Chelmsford is where I live so I spend a lot of time in the town centre!

  2. What a cool idea. I’m guessing a lot of the shots were of you coming and going to work. You are a great cook, so I reckon the mushrooms were for dinner one evening!

    1. A lot of them were on my commute. I did use the mushrooms for our dinner. It was a chicken and mushrooms in a creamy mustard sauce from the new Jamie Oliver book.

  3. MIB

    Is the shopping trolley Little O’s favourite new ride? 😉 😛

    1. Hahaha! No but I am sure when he is a bit older he’ll be riding down the underpass ramp in a trolley and various other shenanigans that mums probably shouldn’t know about.
