Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: V

I love photography challenges. One of these days, I’ll actually sit down with my DSLR camera and figure out how to use it! Until then, my iPhone does a pretty good job of capturing the pictures that I want. There’s nothing like a good challenge- like this week’s for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, which is a word which starts with the letter V and has at least six letters.

WPC- Weathered

weathered alice

Poor Alice has seen better days, hasn’t she? She immediately caught my eye one day when I was at a thrift store. She was grouped with a few other “Alice” items but she definitely stood out. My initial instinct was to reach out and touch her flaky exterior but I refrained, settling on lifting the price tag, curious what someone thought she was worth and hopeful that it would be a price I could justify paying. Alas, $65 seemed quite steep considering the condition the old girl was in! I wonder if anyone saw the value in her or if she’s still gathering dust, waiting for the right person to come along. And I wonder what it is about her that someone thinks makes her worth so much.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone

Nothing says ‘abandoned’ like a toy that was left behind. And it’s those toys, some of Toy Story fame, which are featured in my entries for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone. 

As is often the case, I had completely different photos set aside for this challenge when I happened to walk into the family room after Beej left with his dad. There were Buzz and Woody, laying there abandoned by the little boy who had just been giggling when he accidentally pushed one of Buzz’s buttons.

This caused me to stop and look around at all the other toys that were looking just as sad, waiting for their person to come back and play with them.

All I had to do was to look down when I glanced out the back window to find a teddy bear and friend, peaking out at me. Why he’s hiding there with a storm trooper (or is that a clone trooper— oh shoot, I know this!!!), I really don’t know…

Putting laundry away, a quick check in Beej’s bed found Knuffle Bunny, the most abandoned toy in our house due to the number of times he has been loved, wrestled with, posed, and yes, abandoned in his short time in our family.

A quick pop into Kris’s room found this lion, laying on a shelf with other discarded items.

And finally, I came across another Woody, this one long abandoned by Andy, who tossed him in his closet when he went to college (yeah, the irony of that is not lost on me!).

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Q

Surprisingly it wasn’t as difficult finding “Q” words for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter Q as I thought.

Beej recently discovered the fun of game pieces. They are precious cargo on trains. They march in straight lines. Organizing them into color or style groups is also fun for a three year old so it was no surprise when I found chess queens jumbled up in a pile. queens in a pile

 

These days any house with a little boy probably has its own supply of Lightning McQueens on hand.
