HOME SWEET HOME IN BLACK & WHITE – Garry Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Signs

We have a new sign. Well, not new. It’s almost 20 years old, but it has been down for a couple of years after being knocked over by a snowplow. Owen propped it back up this year, so we have our new (old) sign back again.

I took a few pictures.

WHICH WAY? DOWN BY THE FARM – Garry & Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – August 17, 2018

Ben, Garry, and I went around to the farms along the river. Our hope was to get some pictures and maybe, with luck, some fresh corn, too.

We got both.

The barn on the road by the river …
And this is where we found the corn!
How exciting! Corn!

BLACK AND WHITE SIGNS: CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Garry Armstrong

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: All Signs


I always take pictures of signs. I used to do it when I was working to help place the story, especially when I had four or five (or more) stories to cover. I still take the shots, but now, more for the fun of it.

ODDLY ENOUGH

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 4, 2018


Oddly enough, after all the wind and rain … it’s still gray and cold. Usually, following a major storm, we get a couple of bright sunny days. The wind and rain clear the air and I look forward to the sun coming out.

Not this time. We are still in a mix of ever-changing weather. No two days are alike. Warm, cold, windy, dry, snow, melting, more snow. More rain. No sun for weeks at a time. Sometimes, by mid afternoon, it is as dark as night.

More posters

It’s a good time for oddballs in this oddest of worlds.

WHICH WAY — THE END OF WINTER

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 2, 2018


Theoretically, spring should be hinting at its arrival … but  it’s not. No flowers and it’s cold, pouring rain, and very windy outside. In the middle of this, the builder came by to take a look at our falling apart window. Now I’m wondering how much wall behind that rotting window is going to need replacement.

Home ownership can be demoralizing. You are never finished. Never.

DIRECTION: WHERE AM I GOING? – A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE

A Photo a Week Challenge: Directional


In the end, we will still lose our way. Because we are deeply, phenomenally, directionally-challenged. With a GPS, maps and printed directions, it’s still no better than 50-50 we’ll actually get there.
