In your photo this week, focus on the win, the victory — that moment of glory and pride you’ll remember forever. For more information, go here!
Just when I was about ready to yield the battle of the endless falling fall leaves … VICTORY is in sight and the trees that surround the backyard are almost bare. (Thankfully, the wall of cedar trees don’t have leaves to drop.) But VICTORY over most of the tree leaves did make a very colorful fall photo.
I don’t hate the telephone. I just have an aversion to most of the people who call me on it. I don’t like people who want to sell me something, people soliciting money, people who want me to vote for somebody, people who want me to join their church, people who can’t speak English and finally who cannot get my name right. Gee, that is just about everyone who calls me. Today’s call was a combination of several of the dislikes. Phone rings … “Hello” … “Mr. Elder?” … “it’s Edler — e – d – l – e – r!?” … “So sorry. Mr. Edwards?” … “No, it it’s ED! LAIR!” … “That’s what I said, Mr. Edwards!” … “Never mind, what do you want?” … “We’re soliciting funds for the homeless tree frog refuge … ” … GOODBYE!!!”
This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range. (For more information go here.)
Study In Shades Of Green
This week, show us something creepy — because hey, we can’t take photos of rainbows and puppies every day. Well, okay, I guess we can. But let’s branch out anyway! (For more information go here.)
Ok, since everyone thought my first post of an unstuffed cow to this week’s photo challenge was more cute then creepy. I decided to post this one that is sure to make you cringe. I shot it Saturday night in my backyard. By the way, the web was over three feet wide!. I didn’t measure the spider.
My faithful computer of some ten plus years was retired last week. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t do a mass save of everything on old Sally iMac before I turned on the new as yet unnamed replacement. So now I’m in the process of doing it piece by piece. Boring and time consuming. Worse yet … I haven’t found spellcheck yet! So please forgive any typos. Oh, I just gave the new computer a name … Minion J. iMac! And to celebrate the official naming … the first photo to go through the new computer.
If you have visit this site before, you have undoubtedly seen the front entrance of the St. Louis Art Museum on multiple occasions. Well, this is the backside that has recently transformed into a spacious plaza for special events and also serve as the museum’s new sculpture garden. Here’s a quick sample of some of the works on display in the garden. I took notes so I could supply captions for each sculpture, but I can’t find my second sheet of notes. Will correct after my next visit.
