The Gallery: Expressions - when girls get together

Well this week's prompt for the gallery is Expressions.

If this week had gone a little differently I might have chosen the expression of a newborn but that wasn't meant to be. Therefore I raided the archives again and through a mixture of reminiscing and laughter I stumbled upon the photos from my best friend's hen party last April in Paris.

We had such a great time, I had only got back from Japan a few days before so was a little disorientated and staying for three nights on a barge on the Seine, possibly didn't help.

There were many expressions over the weekend, but mainly laughter. The photo I have chosen is from the Eurostar on the way home. It certainly isn't the best photo I have ever taken but it captures the mood and memories perfectly. Champagne had seemed to be a theme of the weekend.

If you look closely you can see not only my friend's expressions but also those of slight panic in the passengers in the reflection of the window. Something along the lines of "great, a few hours on a train with a group of giggly girls drinking champagne!". Oh well, it was fun and this year we all turn 30 and should probably start to grow up a little. To be honest, I am not going to hold my breath! x

Why not go and have a look at some of the other entries now here.


  1. Great picture! You really did capture a perfect, happy moment. x

  2. I love it! :) Looks like a fab time...I'm sure the passengers weren't frightened, they were jealous! ;)

  3. You can hear you all laughing in that picture! Looks like a great time was had by all! Emma

  4. D'you know something, I've never had a moment like that on a train....that's something I really ought to sort out :) Great picture!

  5. That's a great photo! I love photos of me laughing-I look stupid (is THAT how I really look when I laugh?) but I'm so happy it makes me smile.

  6. I used to long distance commute from the south coast to London and we used to have champagne breakfasts on the (early morning) train. Used to be hilarious but it could flipping well stuff your day at work - you are so not inclined to do anything, even if you only have had 1 or 2 on a longish journey.

  7. Thanks for all the lovely comments. It was a fun time. For those of you that haven't drank champagne on a train, I would recommend it (just be careful when you try and then walk to the buffet car) and Kate, impressive fitting it in before work! I was a mess :)

  8. Sorry, I'm a bit late with my comments... I absolutely LOVE this, it's superb - you've really captured a great moment there - and some great expressions x

    p.s. I thought I was following you on google friend connect but i don't think I am....off to remedy that now. Hope the nursery plans are going well x


Please leave a comment, they make me smile and make my day x
