FLOWER CLOSEUPS IN OUR 2019 GARDEN – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Close up of Flowers

My garden is just a bit “unilateral” this summer. The Daylilies have overwhelmed everything else, except maybe the grass which is fighting it’s own battle to get higher than our knees before mowing.

LETTERS OR NUMBERS: CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letters or Numbers

My husband takes pictures of signs and other posts. He says it’s a carryover from shooting news stories. If you shot a sign which said where you were, it was easier to remember, especially because he often shot multiple stories in a single day.

I’ve sort of picked up the habit, so now I shoot signs and bronze monuments too.

The one and only railroad bridge in town. Numbers on the orange sign but until I get my new glasses, can’t read it!
Capron’s memorial bronze by the Mumford River – 1791 – 1859
Our town’s very fancy crossing sign! Photo: Garry Armstrong – One fancy sign for a very simple crossing. Takes longer to read the sign than cross the street. There’s an 8 in the sign if you look for it.
Take a rock at Mumford Dam and give one to a friend!

THREE SQUARED? CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 3 items or the number three

Three times three is nine. Which is also three squared. That is approximately all I remember about threeness from my youth. Pathetic, isn’t it?

I was again surprised at how many sets of three I had in the big pile of pictures. I probably had more birds but decided to try and use a broad brush to choose the pictures.

Hope it’s not raining where you are — unless you need the rain in which case, the opposite applies.

Three bright birds
Three bearded guys
Almost three o’clock!
Three Orchids
1953 – Three little girls
Three Margaret O’Brien dolls by Madame Alexander
Three common pigeons

TWO ITEMS OR THE NUMBER TWO – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Two Items or the Number Two

And so we move along from one to two.

Here are a number on a fire truck — good old number two — and several pairs of things.

I was hoping there would be a little time to go shoot outside a bit, but it’s raining and it’s going to rain a lot harder, probably very soon. No problem with dry wells this year!

FOOTSES AND LEGSES – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Feet and/or Legs

Feet and legs. Okay. Got that. Let me see what in my archives I can find and post. It’s always a bit of a gamble, but I’ll do my best!

Gotta love the feet and legs!
