I haven’t jumped into photo challenges much. I did my own Monochrome Monday posts for a while, but backed off on that as I grew more stiff and sore and unable to take the walks in the parks. BUT today I ran across this challenge by Cee at Cee’s Photo Challenges . This is a picture that still puzzles me to this day. A sign in the middle of trees and bushes pointing up or ahead. And there was nothing around it. No other signs, no path or trail, no special plant that we could see… just a random sign. …maybe it was a sign? (tee hee)
So I was checking in with my reader feed and found an interesting post from Fandango over at This, That, and The Other. It was just a post of the back of his hand, with a challenge to see everyone’s hands. Not shy to raise my hand, I decided to share my slightly puffy hand with you all. Please join in and add the tag #myhand to your post along with a link back to Fandango’s post to be sure we can all be seen. …hey, what else are you going to do on Friday with time to kill?
I have always loved to take pictures… even back in my youth with a 110 camera. I saved money I made on a paper route and babysitting to buy myself a SLR camera. And when I was at my worst depression, talking pictures while walking in nature was a sort of therapy for me. Just call me a shutterbug.
For a while I did a weekly Monochrome Monday picture as I really enjoy the dramatic effect of black and white photography. I take surprisingly few portrait pictures, but the best ones I take are usually the ones not planned. But I do not consider myself too good with them and take better pictures of animals I think.
By far the subject of choice is flowers. Even if I get a bouquet of cut flowers I usually focus in on one or two of the blooms.
My next challenge is saving up and getting a DSLR and lots of memory cards to store pictures on. Say cheese!
A moment of time
A bird never again to take flight
A flower forever in bloom
A smile never to leave your face
A sunset that never turns dark
Just a frozen piece of history
Developed into a work of art
And it all began with a simple shutter’s click
Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – develop
This began as the brain child of Fandango at This, That, And The Other. To make a long story short, he thought it would be nice to see the streets of fellow bloggers. So I eventually remembered and took my camera out on the way to my Dad’s last night. Stopped in the driveway and captured a look into my neighborhood. It is a pretty quiet street for the most part. Lots of apartments in the area and all sort of people… singles, families, college students, couples, etc. Anyway… I am a fan of black and white so here is a monochrome look into my world. (Sorry I was so late with my link Fandango! But I am here at the party now.)
Does anyone else want to share a bit of your world with a picture of your street?
