Day 22: Participate in a blogging event

Challenge:  Find a blogging event and throw your hat into the ring. 

Well of course I’m doing a photo challenge 🙂 Such fun!!!

WordPress has a good one – Cover Art – I absolutely love to read and listen to music. Cover art is very important!  It catches our interest, makes the book say read me, read me or yawn, how boring.  Of course we all have different tastes, give off varying vibes….Check out my goodreads to see what my nose is absorbed in lately.

I think nearly every person at least contemplates writing some sort of memoir.  When I write mine the title could be – Just Breathe, Breathe Deeply, or Sing in the Dark. 

Hey don’t judge this is what’s jumping about in my brain today who knows what tomorrow brings.  Maybe I will stick with my soup theme and call it – hmmmm….all I can think of sounds cheesy and mushy…soup for the soul is SO overdone…

If you happen to love one of my titles, please, please comment!

So yeah, when I went to find my cover art photo I changed my pretend title 😉 Whatcha think?


Wow! A year has past since I started this blog. It’s a BIG challenge to keep this going, but much enjoyable too.

This category is a fav of mine since my littlest inspired me to start it 🙂

This leaf gift was proclaimed to be the tiniest leaf ever! My son is now 7!!! I’m glad this year he still enjoys picking out leaves for his Mama 🙂

He asked I add this one to my collection so here it is!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

With this challenge What first came to my mind was painting with light from windows and lampposts.  I waved my camera in the air as I pressed the shutter button creating lines in the darkness.  It’s interesting how the night lines in my photo are not only white.  I ♥ the shades of glowing amber.  Minimal editing-  The only edit was a slight cropping!  My other photos were cropped and just a slight change to the brightness.

I don’t feel this 1st photo is very strong in the art of photography, but it was much fun to experiment with another photo style. Experiment with your photography – it opens up new possibilities!

I enjoyed night photography very much!  So I decided to venture out on a night walk again the same week.  Using my flash I captured an interesting, vibrant green weed and willows.

Sunsets – are always fun to capture. This sunset illuminated this tree!  Bright yellow, pale pinks and blues.  I find myself looking often at both sunrises and sunsets to see what the sky painted for me today 🙂
