DUSK AS DAY ENDS – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Dusk


People have often asked what the difference is betweeen sunrise and sunset, between dawn and dusk. Really, in practical terms, the difference is which part of the sky is involved. East is sunrise, west is sunset. But they feel different. For whatever reason, I always know which are which, maybe because i remember when the pictures were taken. These are all dusk or sunsets, taken in Arizona, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New York.

RED: A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Red


Red is a great color. I love red birds, red roses, and red sweaters. I don’t have pictures of any red sweaters, but I have all the others. Let us not forget red barns and scarlet autumn leaves.

CHRISTMAS MEMORIES: A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

From 2003, granddaughter Kaity putting the topper on the tree. Sixteen year later, she is all grown up.

Merry Christmas to all!

MELLOW YELLOW – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow

We were away for three days and the bananas didn’t do well. Three of them literally fell apart when I tried to stack them up and were too gooey even for a photograph. Two made it, but they are still going into the trash.

Bananas don’t last. But, lucky for me, Garry brought home a batch of acorn squash, so I have yellow on yellow. I suppose the acorn squash is more ochre … but that’s sort of yellow, right?

Yellow!

STILL LIFE WITH RIPE PEACHES – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Still-Life (sort of)

Still-life for me is usually cherries. Why cherries? Because they are round, red, and delicious. But Nancy already did cherries and I cannot do better.

So I went with peaches. Ripe (almost) ready to eat. Not quite ready. Maybe tomorrow.

COWS ON A DAIRY FARM – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Livestock

Nancy only photographs livestock on vacation. I only photograph them in the neighborhood, probably because this area is full of farms. Dairy farms and horse farms. A few llamas here and there and lots of chickens.

The cows are my favorite. They are friendly and I think they like having their pictures taken. They always give me their best side!
