CEE’S FUN PHOTO CHALLENGE: TRUCKS WITH SOME BLUE – Garry & Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Oh so many choices!

Take your pick. Garry actually went out to take some pictures today, but didn’t get as many as usual. First, because he got caught by a fan who was also a photographer and by the time the conversation ended, the sky had darkened considerably. Blue and gray had turned almost black and dark. Rain was coming!

A truck or a mural. An octopus, whale, or a rich color of blue. Or, for that matter, water! It’s going to be a very rewarding experience I’m sure!

I find I have no whales or octopi. I’ve very good on trucks and while I lack any murals, I do have some mosaics. And I’m totally sure I’ve got a plethora of blue.

It’s a mosaic because we don’t have any murals. But it’s an old one and it’s all about shearing sheep and marketing the wool. The best of Uxbridge!

PILES AND STACKS OF BOOKS AND CHAIRS AND LOGS – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Piles or Stack

Woodpile at the sawmill. Soon to be your new flooring

It’s so hot here that a lot of the area has no power. Brownouts. They warned us about them. We’re okay, but down the road, there’s no power.

A pile of chairs with snow …

It’s all the air conditioners that are sucking the electricity to nothing. It is so very hot and humid, too, so it feels even hotter than it is. Rain may come on Thursday. The plants would appreciate some water.

Gretchen Archer’s books

We don’t water the flowers. Our well is okay, but we can’t waste water on the flowers. They will have to make it on their own. Anyway, it rained last week several times, so under the dry topsoil, it’s still damp.

Even in the middle of summer, we know winter will come

The dogs have decided to stay inside. All day. They will go out now that the sun is setting, but all day, they have been on the sofa.

But wait! I hear thunder. Wait for it … Yes. It’s raining!

CEE’S FUN PHOTO CHALLENGE AND A SQUARE ROOF #14 – Marilyn Armstrong

For Becky B, it’s a roof, it’s got columns (well, anyway poles!) and it’s square! A little something for everyone.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Columns and Vertical Line(s)

This has been a very non-linear month. Actually, what this has been, is an insanely complicated month with a lot more complications waiting for us in the wings. It isn’t going to get easier until possibly next spring. Meanwhile, we have to just do what we must. And not try to get too wound up about it.

I shall have to delve into archives this time because, well, it’s just that kind of day.

Columns. Sort of.

ARCHES, DOMES, AND HALF CIRCLES – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Arch, Dome or Half Circle

I included a couple of pictures from a good friend in Arizona because they fit perfectly into this montage!
