Yesterday I admitted that at the beginning of this month I had no idea what my final square would be. Even now as I write this half way through the month I am not entirely sure! So I thought I would begin my finish with a retrospective perspective. How many of these squares do you remember? And do you have a favourite?

A huge huge thank you to everyone who has visited, commented and participated in this month’s Squares. It has not been an easy month I know, we are still living in very challenging times. However whilst a tiny part of me wishes life would return to pre Covid-19, I am recognising that actually we cannot do that anymore.

There are still far too many inequalities in this world. I am hoping these strange times though might be the opportunity for the world to become greener and fairer. It isn’t going to be easy though to change in light of the looming economic downturn. However hopefully we can find a way to hear and see different perspectives. I know we can’t make everything better immediately, but maybe we can make a difference even with small changes. And we can certainly broaden our perspectives!

And all of you have certainly being doing that this month with your squares. A huge thank you again to everyone who has taken part this month. I do hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. It has been a fabulous month of Squares and different perspectives.

The final gallery of your perspectives will appear in the next few days, and the theme for October squares is scheduled to be announced in September. So enjoy August making some small changes; whatever you can do will make a difference.

And if you have a spare moment today why not see if you can spot which of the squares in this post didn’t actually appear in this month’s challenge. I swapped it for a Hampshire view in Wednesday’s post, but decided I would leave it in today’s!

  1. Seems the only certainty is that time does march on, quickly or slowly, depending upon our perspective. Your squares challenge made July fly, highlighted by your fab photos and those of all the participants, Becky. Thank you for hosting and see you in October!

  2. Hear, hear! What a rousing way to end. I thoroughly enjoyed the square challenge and will be back in October with One Square Yard. My favorite picture was the one with the flying red flowers. How I would love to actually see them.

    1. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

      If you are ever in London they have kept a few of them at the Imperial War Museum. Not sure how the collection is being shown, but worth investigating if you are ever here

  3. A huge thank you, Becky for hosting this terrific topic on perspective. Any photo can be perspective because it is seen through the viewer’s perspective eye. There were some great pics this month and for the first time ever, I completed every single day. I’m HOOKED! πŸ™‚ Look forward to what October brings. It is one of my favorite months because I love Halloween. Not sure there will be one this year….but! I guess everyone can come up within 6 feet with their masks on….HA! πŸ™‚

  5. You’ve brought us a wonderful selection of photos and if I had to pick just one I would struggle. I think the extra one here is the birds pecking in the seaweed. Thank you for hosting us for another month – it must be such a lot of hard work for you, but I hope you also enjoy it.

  6. I won’t say anything about being in tune or something – with a final anything the theme almost suggests itself πŸ™‚
    It wasn’t planned (the photo that is, the post was prepared a week ago or so), I took the shot while I was waiting for my sister when I noticed the mirror : https://picturesimperfectblog.wordpress.com/2020/07/31/auto-perception/
    Oh, and I love the close up of the blue flower (a ranunculus?) because it is such a striking colour. As a cat serf myself, of course I like Septimus best – and I am happy that he grants me the easy way out in picking amongst so many great photos.
