Thank you for all of your thoughtful comments and emails of sympathy in response to yesterday’s tribute for Theresa.
Sharing your kind, caring words and blessings meant a lot to the whole family at this difficult time. Thank you.
The Weekly Photo Challenge
The theme this week seemed the most cryptic to me to decipher. I looked at the excellent example by Christopher Martin and read about how to go deeper into the scene. What to do when you are actually photographing. How to go “beyond the obvious”.
I didn’t go out and shoot specifically for the challenge but looked at what I had in my archives and tried to look into the photograph to see a whole new photograph within the image. Showing both photographs seemed the way to go so as to compare but I have decided to try to go with the challenge as intended, instead of justifying my edits.
One thing I learned- I photograph the obvious and need to consider the photograph hidden within the one that presents itself. We’ll see how it goes in the weeks to come. Intentional lost in the details photographs instead of edited ones I have already taken. I will look for the picture within the picture as I shoot.
My theme might have ended up being “Crop in the Details” as I try to not crop my images. Once I read about not cropping in an article Henri Cartier-Bresson.
So by looking for the “lost” part of the challenge I definitely “found” some new photographs.
Viewers can judge if the choices I made for the challenge are successful or not.
The most meaningful lost in detail for me was the horseshoe in the firehouse.
Great photos Ruth. My favourite was the Icicles on Christmas Garland!
My thoughts are with you at this sad time, take care, Lorraine
Thank you for your words of comfort, Lorraine
Firehouse photo powerful, icicles/Christmas lights on garland – our decorating vs Mother Nature, teamwork. Wonderful choices all
First pic brought me here. So many details..
Loved all the photos. 🙂
Aww thanks. I wasn’t feeling confident about this week’s offerings.
I love Murphy’s nose in this series, Ruth 😀
Gotta love any part of Murph! Thanks Marion.

oh Murphy’s Nose!
Hello Ruth, the Nose is funny 😉
I hope you are not ill!!
Not ill, thanks. We are sad to lose Aunt Theresa this week. That is why it is a hard time.
I am sorry. We are loosing our Mom in Demenz. That´s hard too.
Sorry to hear your sad news, too. Very hard. Thinking of you.
Wonderful selection of photos, Ruth. I absolutely love the “Watching TV in a box.” In England, the TV is often called “The box,” so you could have titled it “Watching the box in a box.” 😀
Wow, I think you have inspired my post for tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Lots of interesting details. I like the sesame seeds on the bread, and the icicles on the garland.

Your photos are always great. I particularly like the reflection of the guitarist in the piano bench with the pick. Nice job!
I love the bubble, and I can think of lots of uses for the birthday hat, Ruth.
1) I don’t think there’s anything wrong with photographing the obvious. The world needs ALL types.
2) I think you photograph the unique ‘picture-within-the-picture’ more often than you think. 🙂
These are great photos, Ruth! Watch TV in a box is really cool!
Of course I like watching TV in a box. Great photos.
Great response, Ruth. Love Maura in the box and, of course, Murphy’s nose. If I might make a suggestion, though. I think that in light of today’s challenge, “Snow Ball in Snow” should be renamed “Self-Portrait.” 🙂
Great idea. Me and the BVM I rescued from the curb a couple streets over. Then I had a puppeteer do some gardening and she took her home without asking and repainted her so brightly. At first I was upset but now I am used to the brightness. For a time she was Our Lady of the Weeds.
So lovely, Ruth. I so enjoyed seeing the world through your eyes!

Sorry for your loss. RIP Theresa. I love the memorial you created, what an imprint Theresa has left for family and friends, and you on me from this tribute.
I appreciate the dialogue and love your photos. Magnolia Bakery and Guitar pick are my favs.
