MEME WORTHY: A PHOTO A WEEK PROMPT – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Meme-worthy Photos

Facebook is full of memes. I’m not much of a meme-writer. Usually, I use them as part of one of my own posts and I tend to use my own pictures, but I prefer to make them blurry and a bit abstract to not take away from the message, whatever it may be.

But this particular one is one of my favorite quotes from “The Good Omen” said by the devil to one of his minions. You should read the book. It’s hilarious.

From Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman’s “Good Omens”

AND THE COLOR IS PINK! A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Pink

I have a particular favorite color of pink for clothing and it’s the only color pink I wear that isn’t a nightgown or underwear.

Hot pink.

I use to wear black and put a hot pink blazer over it. It looked great. Red works too, but hot pink has class. Otherwise, you won’t find pink in my furniture or even my sheets. I admit a few doll dresses are pink, but with dolls, you can’t entirely avoid pink. It’s a doll color.

And then there are flowers:

 

UNEXPECTED WINDOWS: A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected Windows

An unexpected window in a place where no window should be? An interesting challenge.

A small window in the wall of an old barn

One small window, one huge barn. There’s one crooked old window in the middle of the barn wall. Not big enough or clean enough to bring much light into the barn. But it’s there.

THE VANISHING POINT – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Vanishing Point

It’s that point in the distance where the road, river, valley, or bridge comes together. It’s the natural end of a parallel set of lines.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS, NEW ENGLAND VERSION – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: The Great Outdoors

We live in rural Massachusetts, but it’s hard to think of it as “the great outdoors.”

There’s something a bit enclosed about New England. Trees and stone fences. No big open areas, but smaller sections. Fields, valleys, rivers, lakes … and an amazing Atlantic coast. We are less grand than the west but cozier. Greener.

Less grand than the west, but friendlier. And we get more than enough snow to make up the difference!

ROAD TRIP: A PHOTO A WEEK, HORIZON – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week: On the Horizon

Nancy Merrill is asking for a picture on the horizon. I guess that could include sunrise, sunset, city skyline, or a roof. In this case, it’s simply the skyline of the road on which we were traveling — Route 201 northbound to Skowhegan, Maine.

It was September, the beginning of Autumn in Maine. And with each mile northward we drove, the more autumnal the scenery became. It isn’t just the latitude. It’s also the altitude. As we drove north, we were also driving up into the mountains.

RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER: A PHOTO A WEEK – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: New

There’s nothing new at the moment except for a new year about to arrive. And a new lens for the camera. So I guess you can say that these pictures were created from something new. You think?

And the bird feeder is almost new. I bought them in November which, as far as I can tell, was yesterday and I have NO idea how we got to the end of December.

Because I’m still in November. I am so unready for a new year!

One Red-bellied Woodpecker. He’s also square because I keep making square pictures. I can’t help myself. A  month of square pictures and I’m in the groove
And just because, this is the start of a new day for the new year
