Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Double Letters

My contribution to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Double Letters is an odd assortment- inside, outside, food and a toy.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure

After an unexpected absence, I’m making a second attempt to return to my blog. Five weeks ago, I felt perfectly fine. Okay, maybe a little tired, but otherwise healthy and good. 24 hours later, while on the phone with my friend, I began coughing. Right before the first cough- that was the last time I felt good. I had a few false starts over the past month but I finally feel like I’m turning a corner and on the road to recovery- yay!

There’s so much I have to say. (I’ve written some amazing posts in my head…) I’m hoping to get it all written but until then, I’m starting off slowly, yet again. I can’t think of a better place to begin than Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles

This week’s Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenges: Lines and Angles features lines and angles (well, duh, right?). I’m trying out a new photo editor- Fotor. I’m really bummed out because my true blue Picmonkey now requires a membership- either 7 day free trial or paid.

Thanks for checking out my photos! If anyone has a free photo editor they would like to recommend, I’m open to suggestions!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Y or Z

Here we are at the end of the alphabet! The letters for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge are Y and Z. These can be tough letters but when you have a 2 year old around it’s not as difficult as you think!

These blocks are always out when little Beej is here. He’s all about letters right now and incorporates them into everything he does. The zebra is actually an older photo from B’s younger days.

And just to round out the post, here are a few more Y and Z photos!


Have a great day!


Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Sculptures,Statues, Carvings

I’m always taking pictures when I’m out- no matter where I am. Sometimes I have to remember that there are other people around because it isn’t until after the fact that I might be causing someone to take a second glance at me. I just never know what might catch my interest…..

For Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, I’m using some items that caught my eye when I was wandering around an antique mall last year.

Being an Alice fan, this statue caught my attention. Although it was obviously a steal at $65?!?, I had to take a pass.
This guy would definitely spruce up your weekend pirate ship, wouldn’t it? 
Hmmmm, I’m not sure what to say about this one. Especially being a Taurus and all!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day!
