CMMC: Midweek Madness. Letter “H”

In my life, the most important thing that starts with the letter "H" is Hillsdale.  Ever since we found out about the College in Michigan, which teaches Classical values, Western Civilization, and the Liberal Arts, my husband and I have been big supporters of the small school which accepts NOT ONE PENNY of government money, …

CFFC: Going around in circles, and leaning into the curves

My head is already spinning at this week's Fun Foto Challenge topic.  Like this: Rides after dark and at twilight on the Santa Monica Pier. And this: Ferris wheel at the Washington State Fair.  All the other rides go around in circles, too, don't they? Barrels of whisky at the Jack Daniels Distillery in Tennessee. …

Sunday Stills: Takin’ it Easy with my #Feathered Friends

I will freely admit that our yard isn't quite as enticing (or as large) as Terri's is for birds, due to our many squirrels.  We have one seed-feeder that's squirrel-proof, and two suet feeders.  One suet feeder that would be easy for squirrels to get at, is always filled with hot-pepper suet, which the birds …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #200: It’s the Little Things

I do like to keep my eyes open and search for little things around me that delight the eye.  How about the humble, useful paper clip?  Who gives them more than a moment's consideration, mainly when you run out?  I did, last week at work.  I had lined up some paper clips on my desk, …

Wordless Wednesday: Flying High

Terri's Wordless Wednesday topic of High #Flight inspired me to go back 12 years, to General Aviation Day at our local Paine Field in 2010.  They had a variety of old airplanes on the ground, and in the air.  The day was what a photographer would describe as "cloudy bright", which is great for taking …

Sunday Stills: What might that Pacific Northwest #Aroma be?

Today's theme is aroma, and pictures that lead you to remember the #aroma of something.   So, I will start with an aroma that is one of my very favorites: the salt tang of the sea.  Since salt water is never more than a few miles away from our home in Everett, Washington, we are …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …
