Monochrome Monday – Wise Words

This week for my post I found some graffiti under a bridge that I think is a great way to start the week.  What are your views on graffiti – art or nuisance?  I have often thought of trains as traveling art shows with the amount of graffiti on them.  I have a mixed view on it.  There is certainly some that can be framed and hung in great museums, others are just “amateur” pieces.  I guess it is like all art and is up to the viewer.  I hope you all have a great week!

Monochrome Monday – Give Peace A Chance

The day got away from me and suddenly I remembered I had not posted my Monochrome Monday post for the week yet.  I was looking through my pictures and with all the latest headlines around the world of tensions being high, I saw this picture I had taken at a road side park a couple of years ago and felt it was timely.  It made me think of how some places see these on the streets daily as a part of life.  I am not very outspoken or politically minded … sometimes I think I would have fit in with the flower children of the 60’s and 70’s well.  All I ask today is for a chance at peace, a chance for kids to play in the streets without fear of bombs, a chance for humanity to coexist with each other by embracing their differences instead of hating them.  Let me indulge in this one edited photo to ask only that we love one another.  I hope you have a good week!

Monochrome Monday – Evening Rain

This weeks post is loosely in response to the weekly photo challenge – Elemental.  All living things need water to survive, this flower is no different.  I found it after an evening rain shower while relaxing at the park.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Monochrome Monday – Picking Wildflowers

This week it is a pretty basic photo.  And no, I didn’t actually pick the flowers.  As a kid I would bring my mom wildflower bouquets a lot, but as an adult I would rather leave them to live and bring smiles to those who notice them.

And I did not forget last week’s challenge (Monochrome Monday – From The Back) … no one guessed it from the back.  Here is a front color view.  I hope everyone has a great week! ❤

Monochrome Monday – From The Back

This week is something pretty unique.  I will say it is from the back of it.  It is at a local park and the kids love to climb on it.  Can you tell what it is?  It has been there at the park since I was a kid and that has been at least 40 years ago.  Not sure when it was brought into the park.  I will post what it is next week.  Take a guess!
