Bridge (Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge)


I’ve recently restrung my guitar and snapped these shots with my iPhone 5S. Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, Week 2: Macro.


I could not choose between these three shots. None of them were perfect, yet I liked different aspects of each one.


Pumpkin Patch (Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge)


Taken at a local pumkin farm with my iPhone 5S. Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, Week 4: Challenger’s Choice – Still Life and Food Photography.


This shot wasn’t as clear, as it was shot while on a hay ride, but I liked the subject matter.


My son and I enjoyed a “caramel apple” (sliced Granny Smith apple, vanilla ice cream, nuts, and warm caramel) just before we left. I like the table and pumpkin framing this shot. The taste of the caramel apple was even better!

Snow Day (Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge)

Snow Day

It has been sleeting and snowing since late Sunday night (pre-dawn Monday). I snapped this from my front porch. The cold never bothered me anyway… from inside.

Keyboard (Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge)

 I’ve been spending more time at my keyboard(s) lately, so it ended up being my subject for this week. (I took some other shots that I have decided to save for another post.)

I liked these two because of the texture and shadow. The first is the power button. The second shot is of the left and right-click for the power stick.

I just never know what I’m going to be snapping a photo of next!

Pen (Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge)

It’s been 5 months since I posted a Phoneography Challenge photo.



Since I have an agreement to compose a handwritten note every day this year, my pen seemed the logical subject.






I particularly like the contrasts in the various parts of the pen in macro.

More Photos Monday!

I’m Baa… aack!

It’s funny how quickly things can change.  August 21st I wrote my last blog post until tonight.  I had only missed a few days of posting in 8 months and then, one day, I stopped.

I don’t quite know why. I just did.

So here it is, more than 2 months later, and I begin… again.

A lot has happened since my last post, and I will get to all of it soon enough.  I have been doing a lot of writing, although it hasn’t been here.  I am writing a Newsletter, doing some copy writing, and am embarking on a creative writing endeavor as well.  In addition, I am journaling (partly for a book study I am leading, and partly as a component of my PTSD treatment).

I am not going back to my hard-core commitment to post every day, simply because I am doing so much writing.  Ironically, I may just become habituated to daily posting anyway.  I do miss the phoneography challenge in which I participated on Mondays, as well as my Wisdom Wednesday quotes.  So, who knows…?  I just know that I have missed my diary-gone-public.

And I’m baa… aack!
