Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #White

White isn't a color, it's the sum of all colors.  These days, white gets the ultimate bad rap, due to the fact of the Black Lives Matter Marxists denigrating all white people, and demanding that they be crushed.  But if white is the sum of all colors, shouldn't white be seen as the best?  The …

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 …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #180: Favorite photos of 2021

Like all of us, I thought 2021 was a very unusual, uncomfortable year.  It would have been my first year of full retirement, and a fixed income.  But that was derailed in July when I got a temp job that was supposed to last only one month, but stretched until the end of the year! …

CFFC (Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge): Four colors or more

Thanks so much to my friend Cee Neuner for this very timely topic!  As my readers will already be aware, I have been taking pictures of some of the parts and scraps at the factory where I work.  From almost the day I arrived, I have been admiring the bright colors of the plastic endcaps …

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Light the Night

I love to see man-made and natural objects lighted at night. In fact, one of the very first signs that humans were evolving into social, technological creatures, was the mastery of fire. Very early humans could not advance until they were able to harness fire, for cooking, warmth, and light. This mastery is the very …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #179: Serene

Amid all the chaos surrounding us this year, it's always a good idea to find places and things that are serene.  In the comic strip "Rose is Rose", Rose Gumbo has her "Let Things Be Tree", where she goes when the family is making her crazy. I don't have a particular tree where I go …

Sunday Stills Color Challenge: #Metallic Taste

Terri referred to metallic decorations in her original post, but I will be going in an entirely different direction here. My readers will know that I am currently working in a factory that makes metal parts for big airplanes, both military and commercial.  Since I started in July, I have been impressed with the beauty …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #178: My choice; Winter Wonderlands

The theme this week is "you choose", so in this era of fear, loathing, pestilence, and tyranny, I choose to go through the archives and find pictures of winter wonderlands I have seen.  One benefit of a blanket of snow over the world is the muffled silence it brings.  Fewer vehicles are on the streets, …

Terri’s Christmas Song Lyric Photo Challenge

This one is a real challenge!  In spite of being Jewish, I love Christmas songs, and they tend to become earworms quite easily for me, and not just at Christmas time.  I just have to choose one. One of my very favorites is an old German song, Still, Still, Still.  I think this photo that …
