CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – COLORFUL MONOCHROMES

I’ve never been know to be ‘colorful’, except for maybe my language at times.  I’m more of an earth-tone kinda girl.  So these are what I was attracted to: browns, greys (or is it grays?), and reds.

Welcome to my interpretation of ‘colorful’.

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 FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – WOOD

You take a tree – maybe one with what looks like a thermometer in it’s belly 🙂

tree 1

A tree in Knight Park in Collingswood, NJ. It looks like it can tell the temperature. Well, I’ll tell you the temperature. IT’S 15 DEGREES!!!!

Cut it down – sort of like this

tree 2

A tree, a cut down tree, a wooden bench, a park full of trees (no surprise there).

And maybe end up with something like this.

Wooden American Eagle and wooden American flag.

Cee, @ ceephotography.com, is hosting a challenge pertaining to the Chinese 5 Elements.  This week’s entry is to be all about wood.  I know I posted an eagle for Cee’s Metal Challenge, but there seems to be a theme around our house.  Jeff is an avid history buff and our house is filled with Civil War photos, American Flags – of the wood, metal and fabric variety – and, of course, American Eagles.  All these gorgeous birds seem to have a menacing look in their eyes, but they are magnificent – wooden or otherwise.
