The Tuesday Inspiration: A requirement of the job

I really struggled to come up with anything for today’s theme until I remembered this Yeoman Guard model which I made as a child. I figured that as one of the Queen’s bodyguards, having the character trait exemplified by today’s TI must surely be a requirement of the job. I made this chap when I was at junior school, probably to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, and I rediscovered him in a drawer when I was searching for something a few months back.

Thanks to Moira for setting today’s theme. Last Tuesday’s theme was ‘tutti frutti’. The other interpretations of this week’s theme can be found here.

The “Tuesday Inspiration” began in 2009 when Stéfan and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a… Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two “rules”: don’t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
