Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge: #Urbanity

These days, I live in a suburb.  The closest big city is Seattle, 20 miles south of our home in Everett (where the airplanes are made).  I was born and raised in Seattle in the 1950's and 1960's, and lived there from the mid-1970's until 1990.  I do not recognize the Seattle of my childhood …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #182: Interesting Objects

This week, I'll be starting at home, to capture some interesting objects around me.  The first one is an empty bottle.  Now, the bottle itself is unremarkable, a simple screw-top container.  It's the labels on the bottle, which describe the contents, that make it interesting.  A few years ago, a coworker of my husband came …
