Alley the queen bee of our cat family
She is never amused with my photography sessions
I told her that she was a perfect Match for the Daily Post, Weekly Challenge of a Good Match
She didn’t respond
Crafting does not come easily to me, but I got enthused about decorating a glass jar. The purpose for it, is to hold notes to self, prayer requests and anything else, that I may want to go back to and reflect on. It was a very simple project and I was pleased with the outcome. The Weekly Photo Challenge is Repurpose.
It’s a Ford
The Challenge for this week is Names. I really like vintage vehicles. You will find, other photo interpretations for the challenge, at the Daily Post.
These barn doors were used as back drops for a photo shoot. I have limited experience using a tripod. We had our share of laughter, as I ran to pose and act natural. So funny! We often pass this beautiful barn, and all of the time whiz by. My photograph does not give justice to the beauty of the wood. The challenge for this week at the Daily Post is Resilient. It makes me think of this old barn, that Mr. G, thinks was used for milking cows. I am sure it has weathered many storms, and still it stands, with untold stories, that I will never know about. When I ponder on the word resilient, it makes me think about butterflies…
That travel hundreds of miles to reach a certain destination. Sometimes they are so battered, that I wonder how they can keep flying. That includes birds too. I think of Mr. G, who blew out his knee in the early eighties and then developed an infection in it years later. He was told that it would be best to remove his leg. He resisted that consideration and sought out alternative options.
And years later here he stood, what felt for me, like we were on top of the world. We are not serious hikers, but when we do, we enjoy the experience, despite, getting out of breath, getting lost a few times and running out of water. People, animals, mammals and insects are resilient. We can bounce back from hardship, sorrow and loss. I must add that as human beings we have a responsibility to protect those that have no voice… We are meant to overcome and maybe we don’t hear about it often enough, about those that persevere despite insurmountable circumstances.
In Anticipation of what the cold weather will bring our way, I get pretty excited about the thought of snow. I have become a fan of the weather channel in hopes that we will wake up to a blanket of snow. Not quite a blanket, but
of course my camera and I will take advantage of cold weather photo opportunities. The Weekly Photo Challenge at Daily Post is Anticipation.
Through the eyes of a child
Meeting this little boy, was my most recent magical moment. I did not wave a wand and was not magically whisked away. It took planning and preparation,but my heart got filled up and it will carry me, for awhile.
