Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Cold

Share Your World- January 30, 2017

Share Your World

What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

Hands down, Niagara Falls and the Rocky Mountains are the most amazing natural sights I have seen.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? 

I have 3 siblings and I’m the oldest.

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

This is me- Converse- laid back and casual.


What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

I would have to say that the strangest foods that I have eaten were kumquats and escargot- but not at the same time. While I would eat kumquats again, I’ll take a pass on the slimy escargot.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful for all of the time I was able to spend with 2 year old little Beej and I look forward to more of that special Nonna/Beej time this week!

Sign, Sign, Everwhere a Sign

This week our topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is signs.

I began with some pictures around my home town.

I saw this sign at one of the music schools where Andrew auditioned last year. It made me laugh because I’m certain that the guy who wrote it was serious.

Nothing shouts signs like Times Square.

One blustery frigid day at Niagara Falls, Andrew and I came across this sign as we slipped our way down the path.

Photography 101: Edge

“Today is all about straight edges, and tweaking your image to ensure your lines are perfectly positioned.”


Nothing represents “edge” more to me than this picture of Niagara Falls that I took when Andy and I were nearby for one of his college auditions this past January. Combined with the bitter cold and icy snow pelting us in the face, this was definitely a memorable experience!
