I’m not sure who these guys are but with wings like those I am sure they can fly.

I’m pretty sure Buzz is giving Woody the old heave-ho to see if he can fly. 

There you have it- my take on anything that flies for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge.

Have a good one!

At first I was afraid I was going to have to pass on this week’s Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Large Subjects.I had been looking through my photos and was coming up empty. Looking around me, I wasn’t finding inspiration.

And then my husband saved the day. No. Not another junk shop. This week, he took us to an estate sale. While it was lacking gadgets and gizmos, it did have a few large subjects that I felt were perfect for this challenge. Mr. K lives to save another day!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by Cee’s Black & White Challenge to see more interesting large objects!

Home is Where the Heart is

I took a walk around the neighborhood and took some pictures of my favorite houses. The ones I have included in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Houses are my favorites.

I love the repetition of the angle on this house.

Black and White Photography Challenge: Day 3

I’m on Day 3 of the Black and White Photo Challenge. Hugh from Hugh’s Views & News invited me to participate back in March and I’m finally doing it! 🙂 I’ve really enjoyed taking part in Cee’s Black & White Challenge, which occurs weekly on Thursdays so anything that involved more black and white photos excites me!

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

Today’s photo features Ari and Casey. At any given time, we will find either or both of the dogs on guard duty. They take their job very seriously and often trade places so they can survey the property with fresh eyes.

Black and White Photography Challenge: Day 1

Hugh from Hugh’s Views & News invited me to participate in this Black and White Photo Challenge….back in March…..but hey, I’m here and I’m doing it! 🙂 I’ve actually been looking forward to doing this- I’ve really enjoyed taking part in Cee’s Black & White Challenge, which occurs weekly on Thursdays so anything that involved more black and white photos excites me!

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

For my first photo, I chose one I took yesterday. I was feeling adventurous and the weather was finally working in my favor so I bundled up Baby Beej and harnessed Ari and we went for a walk. It wasn’t until Ari was tugging at the leash in my hand one way and I was pushing the stroller with the other over some uneven gravel, that I realized that this was the first time I’ve actually attempted a walk with both. We made it to the town square and I introduced Beej to the fountain. At six months of age, he wasn’t impressed, his eyes darting in every direction as he tried to take in all the wonders of a busy town intersection. He tried to focus on the cars but just as he got them in his sights, he would lose them as they zoomed by. Ari protected us from the threat of the menace bikers and peed her way to the fountain and back. I would call our first outing a success on all counts!

I would like to invite Meredith over at Meredith’s Musings to take on this challenge. Meredith and I met in class learning the blogging ropes together. Her blog is a nice blend of music, poetry, movies and her thoughts on life. She recently participated in the Five Photos, Five Stories challenge (which she invited me to do…and I will be working on very soon!) and I enjoyed seeing her photos along with the stories.

This challenge is all in fun and participation is optional. If you would like to join the fun but haven’t been invited yet, please let me know and consider this your open invitation to take part. 🙂

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge- Take a New Photo

This week’s theme is “Take a new photo”. I was a little lost. I rely on those prompts more than I realized! The ironic thing is that I’m constantly taking pictures so this should have been a piece of cake. 🙂

With an open ended theme like this, I’m sure everyone’s offerings are quite diverse! Be sure to head over and check out Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge!
