This week’s photo challenge: “This week, show us a moment in time that holds meaning for you….Evanescent can be any fleeting moment in time.” * My son, always tall for his age, is now, at 10, almost able to look me straight in the eye. And I’m 5’6, so I’m really not that short! This […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: EVANESCENT
I love the delicate new leaves of springtime – looking at them, photographing them. (And the contrast here between the mature branch and the new growth seemed like a good contribution to Tuesdays of Texture, too!) My son asked me to take this shot particularly because he noticed that this little baby branch with its […]Read More Tuesdays of Texture: May 9, 2017

As the year comes to a close, find that glowing ember of hope that makes you excited for 2017.” * I love this week’s challenge. I think it’s not only […]Read More Discover Challenge: HOPE GONE VIRAL
A little late contributing to the photo challenge this week…but, post-Halloween, there are simply too many images onhand not to submit something! Especially when the theme is “TRANSMOGRIFY”: “Transform. Morph. Change. Show us something already transformed, on the cusp of transformation, or that you wish you could transform.” I mean, “transmogrified” pumpkins are everywhere this time […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: TRANSMOGRIFY
