Visiting Ashley's blog I loved all the photography challenges she was joining. I made a comment about loving the idea but not being a photographer. She invited me to play along anyway.
From this past week's You Capture. Theme: Flowers. Just in time for pretty much all my flowers to be dead or dying. But not this flower. This flower is the start of a cucumber, and because she is inside, she is still cozy and warm despite the cool weather we have been having. But she looks so forlorn looking out the window at the sunny outside. For more photos: click on the button to link over to You Capture.
Last week's Perceptive Perspective's theme was "Feet". This was from Christmas 2006 when I painted "mini me"'s toes and mine. We had a lazy pajama girly day. I miss my mini me. I also miss having access to photoshop. This picture would actually look really nice with just a touch of editing to make the background B&W. The link to this challenge:
The Paper Mama challenge Ashley participated in had the theme "fingerprints". In my 365 photos sometimes I'm not sure what to take a picture of, particularly on the days when I stay home sick... so I told myself to smile and made myself a little bit of company to remind me.

And finally, the Paper Heart Challenge, theme "everyday beauty." This nest has stayed in the tree in front of my house for almost a year. It is well sheltered and despite rain, snow, and hot weather it is still just as it was. Since it's residents no longer need it, I think I might take it down and put a candle in the middle for a nice relaxing display in my counseling office. For more everyday beauty:
Well. I'm definitely no photographer, but I had fun taking/finding photos to keep up with busy Ashley. I won't be joining in most of these challenges again. But there is a Scavenger Hunt that sounds fun, and I like You Capture because it specifically invites anyone and everyone regardless of their photography skills to join.
