This week’s photo challenge: “[T]ake a moment to notice the structure of everyday things around you. Note the lines, freckles, and tiny hairs on your arm, and imagine the biological blueprint that created them. See the bricks of a building, and realize that they were individually placed there by another person. Then, share with us […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: STRUCTURE
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

I think this first one below might be my favorite. Maybe not the shot itself (it’s just a snapshot…nothing special.) But […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: GREEN!

This week’s photo challenge: “[L]et’s embrace disorder and its creative power. …[S]hare your own take on chaos.” * “Chaos” might be a little too strong a word for a pumpkin patch – but “disorder” definitely works! It’s definitely not an organized kind of environment – particularly at this time of year, when the vines have […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: CHAOS
