Roget’s Thesaurus suggests these words as synonyms of shiny:  glistening, polished, gleaming, sparkling (and others)…I used it to brainstorm what pictures would answer the Weekly Photo Challenge prompt ooh, shiny!  Here are some of the things I thought of:


A few days ago, I went out for a walk shortly after it had rained. I found this wilting pink flower, which glistened with raindrops.


In July, a brass jazz band played a concert at my church. This shiny instrument is a bass saxophone.

In January 2016, we had our living and dining room wallpaper stripped and the walls painted. We had to move a lot of things stored in pieces of furniture, including a set of silver serving dishes that I’d forgotten all about.  They were very tarnished, so I decided to polish them – see how shiny the silver bowl and bread basket are! But when am I going to use them??
