NOT ANY WHICH WAY! THIS WAY – Marilyn Armstrong

Which Way Photo Challenge – 02/07/2019

Going somewhere? And which way are you going?

There’s a long way and a shorter way. Big roads and little roads as well as a dirt road and a grass path. And of course sidewalks

Plus a long flight of stairs and a chairlift.

WHY OH WHY?

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter Y – Needs to start or end with the letter Y or in the caption “Why” needs to be present

Why oh why do I have so much trouble with “Y”? Is it because I don’t eat yams? Sold the yellow car? I do not yodel?

FIVE MINUTES AT TWILIGHT BY THE WOODS

Those golden moments at twilight are incredibly brief. The golden light hits … and less than 10 minutes later — usually more like five minutes — it’s dark. Maybe that’s just true at this latitude. I think sunset lasted longer in Arizona … and also in Israel. But I’m not sure.

Remembering light tends to be fleeting, both in photography and in memory.

For this challenge, Su Leslie suggests:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
  • have fun!

 

CAN YOU READ THE SIGNS? IT’S A BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: SIGN


My sun is in Pisces. Leo is rising, conjunct Saturn. My moon is in Scorpio.

Our astrological selves are composed of all signs, in different measures and potency. Like everything else, it’s complicated. This is astrological me. Feel free to read the chart, if you know how. No rants about astrology, pro or con.

SNOW COVERS THE WAY – CEE’S WHICH WAY CHALLENGE – GARRY ARMSTRONG (MOSTLY)

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – January 11, 2017


It’s winter again. Trails in snow … and trails covered by snow. We’ve had some snow and we’ve had some record-breaking warm weather between snows that makes all that white stuff go away.

These pictures by Garry were taken the morning after the storm. They are my favorites.

If snow weren’t so pretty, I don’t think I’d make it through the season!

There were a lot of wonderful paths, roads, docks, dams, and other ways to travel these past few months. All of these are favorites, but one of them is my favoritest favorite. You are free to guess which one.

They are predicting a little bit of snow for the end of this week, but I don’t expect it to stick to the ground or last past an hour or less. Still, it’s a warning, the proverbial “shot over the bow” telling us that it’s time to get those leaves up, the lawn equipment put away, and shake the mothballs out of the winter coats!
