New - Old Format - New Header - Thanks Belita And Some Household Duties To Perform.

This is a little check in with some cleaning and clearing to be conducted.

Hi Dear I&W Members and Friends just a little update about our new/old look here.
After trying the Dynamic layout and enjoying it I decided to revert back to an original format for the time being. Before I changed the layout I had thought that it would be nice to highlight once a week or so, the very creative and awesome personal I&W entries as seen in our Flickr album. 
Of course our slideshow is always available for viewing from our Guest Book however some of the I&W images deserve to be shown to advantage as a header image on our blog here too.

This week I want to Congratulate Belita on the excellent use of both Image and Original quote in the photo above. Belita although there is no prize for being such a talented I&W member I would like to thank you for being so creative and always so spot on when when you submit your I&W for the themes.

Enjoy Belita's Image and Words Header for this week and watch the space for another members effort soon. Keep on posting in Flickr please if you don't mind because we are a public group there too and our album is an excellent advertisement for the amazing talent of our wonderful group members here.

Thanks to All Our Muze Members and Friends for keeping  all of the action happening in Muze.

I would like to mention Both Anders And Sue for their contributions each week and in keeping everything running smoothly in the background.
Both excellent I&W creators it is always my pleasure to work with them albeit from a very different time zone.

Below is very important information for the group so please read and refer back anytime that you need to. We will post the rules on each blog as has been done before and if you have any queries please ask in comments below this post.

Cheers Milli. xo

The Old Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here. New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please. 

Rules Revised Below.

The New Rules: 

Each week we will post an original photo creatively edited or not. 

All photos or collages must contain words somewhere on the image or placed in an area on the image most suitable to be seen clearly by all. 
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through 
our photography in a creative manner.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given to the original author, unless unknown, whereby a simple "author unknown" will suffice.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like, comical, 

but never obscene .
Posts can either contain one word, sayings, statements, quotes, or full poems ... As long as the words fit the theme, it is Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form 

with a link back to it being left here or on Muze. 
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through to the following Saturday.

  1. ** duly noted!!

  2. Belita....your photo is spectacular...from the sky on down to the brown grasses!!

  3. Thanks Milli. Much appreciated and very well formulated.

    Belita's header is wonderful. Love the fresh pale blue sky and the old house.

  4. A beautiful header, very impressive, lovely contrasts. I would just mention that I am glad you have abandoned the dynamic layout. I just do not like the way it is done, perhaps I am too old for being dynamic, but I prefer the stressless "normal" layout.

    1. I am glad that you are comfortable with this older version Pat. It certainly has it's merits for it's simplicity.

  5. Good morning Milli. I do like the groups page much better in this simple form. Belita's your pictures is great as they always are, you found the perfect quote. I would like to take this time and say, I have really enjoyed being here thus far. It has been fun. There are a lot of talented people here, with great personalities & I would like to thank each of you for the warm welcome. I do have to give Mr. Hansen a special thanks for all his help in narrating me around and seeing I knew exactly where to post and how to post. I have to say he has been very patient with me. I am surprised he has any hair left due to my hard headedness!!! LOL :~) Thanks again Anders. ;)
