Week 4 (Quiet Moment) – Liquid Blue

“Liquid Blue”

This week, in our 52 week challenge, we were to make an image that would represent a quiet moment or scene of serenity.  To me, there is nothing more serene than a hot bubble bath.  The room makes the experience extra special if it decorated in a calming color, like blue, to help calm you completely.  So this is my quiet moment.

They will be here soon, all full of cheer.  Bitter cold and looking for warmth, they will reach for the Pendleton.  Before they take off their coats.

 

 

Day 3 – Macro Challenge

 

“Mini Rose”

The petals weaken under the drops of rain that have found their way into the folds.  At any moment, the drop could fall, making way for the petals to relax some until the next rainfall.  The color bright and new, even though it is autumn.  Beautiful.

7- Day Challenge – Macro

As it flows into fall, the overcast skies give perfect light for some macro shots.  The light is soft, the rain leaves gorgeous droplets on leaves, and the leaves themselves are changing colors and creating beautiful backdrops for these types of shots.

This week, walk into your yard and create a daily story TTL using macro techniques.  Just don’t get your gear wet!

Day 7 of B/W Photo Challenge

“The Hideout”

It’s quiet in the house, it’s Saturday afternoon.  Everyone else is asleep so I head out to the shed with a cocktail and contemplate what next to do with the garden.  It’s the perfect spot, away from the spying eyes of the neighbors, with a great view, this hideout is perfect.  So peaceful.

Day 6 of B/W Photo Challenge

The Challenge

“The Birdbath”

The leaves are beginning to fall, the water murky.  The reflection shows it is still light out and the birds are chirping around me.  It’s the perfect gathering spot for our friends as they await in the branches above.  They will come, eat, drink and be merry tonight once I leave.  I just hope they keep it down.

Day 5 of B/W Photo Challenge

The Challenge

 

“Welcome”

It’s getting dark and the porch light has come on.  The broom in the corner awaits its next visitor when it will fall as a warning.  It’s that time of year again when everything gets spooky and our porch is no exception.  Dark and creepy, only those who approach will be rewarded.  But with what.

Day 3 of B/W Photo Challenge

The Challenge

 

“Birdhouse”

It’s fall now.  The house is empty, waiting to be cleaned.  New inhabitants will be coming in the early Spring to check out their new digs.  For now, though, it sits quietly, resting on the fence.  Awaiting the stork to come.  Soon there will be new mouths to feed.

Day 2 of B/W Photo Challenge

The Challenge

 

“Porch Bench”

It’s heard it all.  The tears, the laughter, the news.  The bench on the front porch has aged with the family and holds all its secrets.  All the lies, all the truths.  If the wood could talk, like the rings in a slice of tree trunk, it could give you its history, its story.  It’s our heirloom.
