Last week I was so excited to learn that Cee of Cee’s Photography is bringing back her Which Way Photo Challenge. I always enjoyed this challenge, partly because I have trouble remembering themes and this one is always the same and partly because I’m fascinated by how roads, paths and trails can look so inviting… Continue reading Ribbons of Light
Yesterday, while browsing through my photo archives, I came across this lovely rose that I captured with my iPhone camera last June. Oh, how I miss the flowers of days gone by. It feels like it’s been so long since the world was filled with color. ((((sigh)))) If you’re wondering why I put the rose… Continue reading A Rose of Days Gone By
Another circle for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge
The jet stream has finally diverted to some other part of the continent, sending the constant clouds, gloom and rain elsewhere. This morning I woke up to the distant glow of sun and a sparkly coating of frost on everything. It’s so beautiful! And it’s been so, so long since we’ve seen clear skies for more than… Continue reading Hello, Jack Frost!
Wednesday I walked around Snohomish and took pictures of some of the doors all decked out for Christmas. Taking pictures of buildings or parts of buildings usually results in lots of swearing when I get the images uploaded to my computer and I usually never share the crooked, awkward results of my efforts. But I will… Continue reading Christmas Doors
Even though I am too late for Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge theme of simplicity, I thought I would share the few photos I took for the challenge and my struggle to find/create photo composition with simplicity. The goal was to take 4-6 photos with the photo subject taking up only about 1/4 of the composition… Continue reading The Search for Simplicity
I was quite puzzled when I got this photo of Jasper, the Stellar’s Jay with the floppy wing, uploaded to my computer. It looks like the bottom half of his body got amputated and then his legs reattached. Then, a week or two later, I saw him shift into this weird position. He was sitting… Continue reading Franken Jay
Every month I take photos that I don’t end up using in a blog post. While I was looking through my September 2015 folder this morning, I was inspired to create a blog post using all these over-looked photos with the addition of a few favorite moments or photos from the month. Maybe I’ll start… Continue reading September Moments
One thing that is a little disappointing about squirrels is that they don’t often show themselves until they are nearly full grown, at least in my yard. (And maybe wisely so, given how Trouble reacted to that little red squirrel.) Over all the years that I’ve lived so closely with squirrels, only a few times… Continue reading We have a baby!
For this week’s Fun Foto Challenge, Cee asks us to share photos of the things that visually delight us. While there are many things I could share, I decided to go with one of the sights that delights me on a regular basis: the little faces of my squirrel friends. Some of these photos are old… Continue reading Little Faces
