CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – GEOMETRIC SHAPES

Watching kids has its advantages.  You get to play with toys.  And, you get lots of photo ops.  This is some kind of light up block thingy that is very cool in color.  But since this is black and white, I will save the color pic for another post.  My little buddy said we should shut the lights and take a pic.  Ok.  So the ideas are not always mine.  He just happened to make this brilliant suggestion on the day that Cee posted this challenge. (I’m just a day late and a dollar short with the post, as usual.) This is the B&W version (or as my little buddy says, “virgin”.  (He keeps me in giggles.) image And this is a bowl of kiwi and one loan apple.  Time for a supermarket road trip! image This had a little Tooncamera app enhancement. (Thanks for the turn on to the app, Allan.)

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE – WOOD

I’m obsessed with grapevine wreaths lately. There is a giant peace sign wreath a few towns over, hanging outside the window of a  beauty salon. I WANT THAT THING!  Today I got a coupon for 55% off anything in A. C. Moore. I will use it and I WILL figure out how to make one. 

imageThis is not that, and I’m not even sure grapevine is wood.  But I’m certain someone will let me know if I’ve erred in some way. I just thought it was pleasing to the eye. 

Stop by and visit Cee’s blog. You’ll find some amazing photos there.

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE – TOYS FOR KIDS OR ADULTS

TOYS – For kids AND adults. Welcome to our brave new world. Where a five year old shows me how to call up the remote for his tv on his kindle. Where I sit in the a.m. with coffee in one hand, iPad in the other. Where Instagram and #100happydays meets #foundmomo. Where my little buddy taps and clicks to view Ironman, Batman, Spider-Man and more. Where I peruse blogs and try to improve my Words with Friends skills. One of today’s “toys” in B&W.

THANKS FOR THE VISIT.

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – WATER – From a Drop to an Ocean

A visit from family. A trip to the Philadelphia Zoo. A fabulous, warm, autumn day. And a chocolate ice cream cone. These all made for an incredibly fun Saturday.
The bears have their own waterfall. If it were me living there, I’d be frolicking in that pool. It was toasty yesterday.
A look at the bear’s digs from the other side of the glass.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge – Far Away in the Distance

A web of wires
Dangling, tangling and,
Far away in the distance,
I see the puffiness of the clouds,
The wonder of the sky,
The unreachable, unbelievable,
The unfathomable number of miles and miles.
Somewhere in the distance.

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE – SEATING

A Sunday spent window shopping with a friend, I pass by this quaint little store and spot the most amazing bench.  Why amazing?  Well, it’s wood and metal and very Americana.  My husband has a collection of wooden, metal, and glass American flags, and I knew he would love this.  So I took a photo, smiling to myself and being all proud of my find.  Meanwhile, WHY DIDNT I ASK IF IT WAS FOR SALE?!?!?!?!
