NOT ANY WHICH WAY! THIS WAY – Marilyn Armstrong

Which Way Photo Challenge – 02/07/2019

Going somewhere? And which way are you going?

There’s a long way and a shorter way. Big roads and little roads as well as a dirt road and a grass path. And of course sidewalks

Plus a long flight of stairs and a chairlift.

WHICH WAY? THE GPS KNOWS, BUT I’M LOST – Marilyn & Garry Armstrong

Which Way Challenge: 11/29/2018

Not much traveling this month. Just one short visit to Connecticut. I don’t think the grocery store really counts, but maybe our driveway does?

It has been raining more days this month than it has been clear. Forget about sunny. If it hasn’t been raining or snowing, it has been gray and gloomy.

Not great photography weather and not very inspiring for getting out there and shooting.

And so we have returned home. Bonnie and Gibbs did not starve in our absence. We have a functional hot water heater and surprising rise in the water pressure making me wonder how long the boiler was leaking. Our plumber said he had a lot of work cleaning up the mud that had accumulated behind it. It must have been leaking for a long time. Months? Years?

For the past couple of days, we’ve been talking and having a lovely time. I can’t begin say what a pleasure it was to be with friends. We were having a difficult week … and it was only Wednesday. I don’t have a lot of road pictures, but I thought this one, taken yesterday evening just before the light disappeared might work.

I have two 25 mm “normal” lenses. The Olympus is fast at f1.8, but the Leica is faster at f1.4. It is also the only camera that will take a good picture when the light is very low.

The next one is from Garry. Garry took almost all the pictures this visit … which you will see as the week progresses!

The past few weeks haven’t been great for photography. It’s been dark, gray, rainy, and pretty cold, too. Today is lovely. We had a doctor appoint and then a grocery stop to pick up a few things. I was hoping to pick up some flowering plants for the deck, but all the plants look  tired and sad, so we agreec — if it isn’t raining tomorrow — to go to the nursery and maybe buy a few healthy plants.

But I knew this prompt would be “up” today, so I took a few pictures. Also, found a couple from earlier months I never got to processing.
