I can’t believe it took me so long to start responding to the Weekly Photo Challenges. All those challenges unanswered.
This week is home. The WordPress Weekly Challenge allows me to go through some archived files and think about the theme.
What I’m drawn to. What caught my eye.
No shortage of photos to post for home this week.
When I drive into my driveway after work I feel I am truly home. What makes you feel at home?
The gallery option isn’t really cooperating for me today. (Ooops. I read in the article Are You Boring? Seven Tips for Knowing if You ‘re Boring Someone on the Happiness Project blog by Gretchen Rubin to never mention computer problems)
A week of bright shining stars.
The Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination inspired me to post twice and then I received these photos in my email.
I love it when my friends, family and followers respond with a photograph.
My college friend/ artist/ photographer Joyce Grasso sent this to me. I wrote back and she graciously consented to be guest blogger.
Shot through a car window with a cell phone. Last Spring my sister and I met Joyce at MOMA and toured the Cindy Sherman exhibit.
Thanks for sharing your illumination capture of the star in New York City, Joyce!
Plugged in and sitting on top of the piano at Mark and Erika’s house.
And I found myself watching it for a long time, the sparkles rising and falling, catching the light. Now photographing it was a challenge.
Too much light and the sparkles disappeared.
I was fascinated by the glittery colors inside floating and glimmering. This is the best I could capture it. I thought it was a lot of fun.
The holly bush outside provide a few branches. Photo by iPhone.
I have 3 Christmas plates in the Naif pattern but they made it feel festive.
Menu was scrambled eggs with a bit of extra sharp Cabot cheddar, toast. Coffee and orange juice. The tangerines looked beautiful but the taste was a bit disappointing.
Nothing fancy, simple but good. And the individual butter dishes from my elegant friend J in Omaha. They inspire me to entertain.
A flag in tatters. Montclair, New Jersey. Corner of Claremont and Valley Road. A revolutionary marker at the site commemorating George Washington’s Temporary Headquarters.
Parking on the wrong side of the street, going the opposite direction of traffic. Some neighborhoods ticket for this offense.
No Cardboard (you may have seen this one before)
No Parking in New York City. Just over the line.
Green Eggs. And other interpretations for this week’s photo challenge may be seen here
Taken at lunchtime on Friday April first. You worry the homeowner might be ill or injured and can’t get out on the roof to take down Christmas. A gray sky but a cheery Santa face. Reminds me of the Coca-Cola ads. I’ve watched and wondered how long Santa will be up there. I’ve had Christmas up a long time myself, inside the house. But not into April. Ever. The front hallway always seems so bare when the garland comes down.
Wonder what the electric bill is this month for this family?
