Another kind of waiting….
Another kind of waiting….
Creepy, huh? I’ll show you Creepy!
Many will find my bugs Creepy but I have fallen in love. I know, quite hypocritical, given my distaste of their distance relative at the top, eh?
And I have been posting a lot lately about this Fungi Village growing right outside my bedroom window…Freaks me right out!!! I swear they are creeping closer and closer every day!
But today was the creepiest by far!
I’m starting to see faces on some of them!
I had the same thought as V.J. ( https://onewomansquest.org/2019/10/16/candid/ )
I immediately remembered this series of photos of cousins meeting for the first time.
No clue what they were watching but they both look pretty serious. And it was not the first time I caught a glimpse of my grandson’s protective nature!
These first two shots make me long for Summer again. Wasn’t that just yesterday???
But my favorite Filling the Frame are these. Just a little pile of Lucy parts!
And this last was an accident. I wish I could have really focused on the web.
Some weird combination of sun behind me or something. I just couldn’t quite get it!
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!
Great topic! But please forgive my irreverence. I am just now surfacing after writing a particularly heavy article for The Seeker’s Dungeon, and am looking for some LIGHT now!
So here goes…
We don’t get much Street Art around here so I am improvising today.
We have plenty of “Road Art”… mostly created by teenagers or the winter sunrise.
Then there is the ever popular Driveway Art…featuring the Paper Boy, the local ant population, and the contribution of our neighborhood fruit trees…
(I seem to see ART in a lot of driveways…)
Next we have Pot Hole Art…
And the hard to miss Road-Side Art…creators unknown.
Oh, and then there is Wall Art (not to be confused with Walmart)…
And I guess I should include Driving-on-the-Street Art…
Also, Deck Art (not to be confused with Art Deco)
But my favorite might have to be Art SEEN from the Street…
The Rock, on San Juan Island…
I suppose I could count this sentimental shot as Street Art, of interest only to my mush-head family…
Or maybe this depressing Street Art, warning us of still another upcoming McMansion being built on our tiny lane…
Or, I we can go to the local yearly Art Fair to see Sidewalk Art…which I have to admit was pretty spectacular…
But as for actual Street Art around here….not so much!
I always liked this photo. I loved the weird light from outside, and the way the moisture had collected itself on my window. But I always thought there was something wrong with the picture, something missing, something I needed to add.
Today’s challenge made me think of it in a whole new way.
Maybe it’s something I have to remove from it….making less more…
Here’s my experiment. Tell me what you think.
These two are with the smaller dark strip more centered
I like the last one. It seems so much more full and alive with detail and color. And I like that it’s a little more difficult to identify.
Thanks for this interesting challenge. Now I’ll go out there and apply these lessons to my hectic day!
