More Twisted for Nancy Merrill’s Photo-a-Week challenge

I remembered this one series of photos from a while back that really captured “twisted”!

Photo a Week Challenge-7/19/19 Twisted!

I LOVE this word. Now to find some photos to represent such a fun topic!

First, the definitions of the word…

 

Does it mean warped, as in “unpleasant or unhealthily abnormal thinking”?

Like my best friend’s idea of ART?

 

Or twisted, like…

Or maybe twisted, as the following are some of my favorite photos?

Don’t worry, he’s not hurt…just “resting and looking at the view”.

My hair stylist of 30 years, tracking my recent hair loss…yikes!

 

 

Or maybe it’s just that other definition of twisted…

“forced out of its natural or proper shape; crumpled”

Anyway, I had fun in a twisted way…

Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge-7/7/19 theme-Grandparents

Ahh, controversial topic for me.

My Mom’s parents figured prominently in my young life, but pretty much continued their emotional excommunication of my mother, with my sisters and me. So there was no closeness. Mostly disdain.

I never met my “father’s” parents because I never met my biological father.

My Dad’s parents were gone before I was born.

I was close, for a while, with a boyfriend’s step grandmother.

Just not much experience with grandparents. So I became dedicated to being a good one myself!

I am “Dammaw”! Hear me roar!

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #53 “your choice”

Well, because I am having a brand new experience this month–house/animal sitting for some fish, 2 dogs and a bunch of, uh, fowl, I’ve chosen Chickens as my topic.

I love all birds but never really noticed how beautifully feathered chickens are so I’ve been photographing these guys a lot.

Here are some samples!20190705_10423820190701_07522320190629_09134820190705_10425320190705_104235
