CFFC: Circles and Curves Lots of curves, circles, and bends in the road. Life and the world are like that.
FIFTY LITTLE STEPS
CFFC: Walk 50 steps or less and take a new photo(s) It’s just about 15 steps from the loveseat in the living room to where I keep my “bird” camera in the dining room. We do everything except eat in the… Read More ›
NATURE AND NATURAL
CFFC: Nature Big and powerful, small and feathered, we are part of nature and she is part of us.
MADE BY MAN – BUT WHY?
CFFC: Man-made items An old doll, old toys, a Robot that almost walks (but mostly falls down). An old Rose Famille plate and an Air Force carrier transport jet. A remade version of the original Teddy Bear. All part of… Read More ›
SHADOWS AND REFLECTIONS
CFFC: Reflections or Shadows Garry is really the reflection photo king but I manage to take a few, too.
CONNECTING TO THE MOMENT
CFFC: Connects you to the present moment Birds and other wildlife around my home is my primary connection, but the few potted plants I’ve managed to keep flowering despite heat and dryness are important too as are the orchids, the last… Read More ›
CFFC: Reminds you of natures beauty Talk about hard choices. I chose many, then whittled the selection down to six, at which point I stopped whittling. Hope you like them.
THE HAPPINESS OF OTHERS
CFFC: Would make a friend happy Christmas is always a good time to start, especially since a new year follows just a week later. Who wouldn’t want cozy clothing for a cold winter? For the floral among us, a fresh orchid… Read More ›
CFFC: City Structures Cities are unique. Some city centers have a dam and a waterfall, others have tall buildings or cobblestone streets. Occasionally, you can see a tall ship on the wharf. It depends on the town.
LAND OR WATERSCAPES
CFFC: Landscapes or Waterscapes That’s a pretty good description of my entire photographic content, not counting a few candid portraits by or of me. So this one, at least, should be easy peasy. The two pictures on the far right are… Read More ›
CFFC: Abandoned Buildings or Barns In the early 2000s, there were a lot of old, nearly collapsed barns and sheds, as well as long-abandoned mills. Since then many old wooden mills have burned down, but anything reasonably solid was renovated and… Read More ›
CFFC: Joints or Connecting Points What an interesting challenge! There are so many kinds of connections from tiny to huge. It was a challenge merely picking my favorites.
CIRCLES AND CURVES
CFFC: Circles or Curves All kinds of rounds and curves, from Beacon Hill to a deck feeder and one very round-bottomed squirrel.
FUN WITH SQUARES AND TRIANGLES
CFFC: Squares and/or Triangles It’s easy enough to find squares, but triangles were more of a challenge. I did find a couple, though.
CROOKED OR SQUIGGLY
CFFC: Crooked or Squiggly Crooked? Squiggly? I’ve got water, clouds, and twisting trees against a sunrise. Tis enough. T’will serve.
EDGES AND LEDGES!
CFFC: Edges and Ledges In a rare act of cooperation, the photographs I was looking for popped up immediately. Garry used to like edges and ledge, but that was a while back. I don’t think he’d be out there now.
WATER WATER EVERYWHERE
CFFC: Water We live between rivers, amidst stream and dams and waterfalls. There are many problems in the valley, among them a lack of work and a fair bit of poverty — but I have always thought the beauty of… Read More ›
FIRE IN THE TEPEE
CFFC: Fire Once upon a time, I had a 12-foot Tepee. Owen and Garry helped me build it. I painted it and I loved it for eight years until finally, the poles rotted and it was time to take it… Read More ›
RUSTED METAL AND MORE
CFFC: Metal From pots and pans to giant metal structures in an endlessly growing city, metal is everywhere. Old and new, shiny and raw, it’s wherever you look and many places you never thought to look.
CFFC: Birds I have some favorites and this seems a perfect time to show them off especially since all my feeders are down right now. Between the swarming hornets and an outbreak of avian flu, we are just feeding them… Read More ›
