Cactus Clock–– Macro Challenge, Week 5, Plants and Flowers

This is a second try at the macro theme since I didn’t notice that the subject was plants and flowers for  Musin with Susan’s macro challenge. Hope it isn’t too late.  I’ve been doing a lot wrong lately. I think too much on the agenda.

This was shot with y Canon PowerShot SX710 HS, iso 400, 10.99 mm f/4 1/400

 

I think the little ants on  each oval around the circle make it look a bit like a clock, with them being the numbers.

I’m not sure if the first two qualify for this “Faraway” challenge, but at the very least, they are “Here and Away!”  I seem to be fond of sepia lately so these evolved from color to b&w to sepia before I finally committed.

Here are some more––black and white for the most part:

I liked this pink tinge in the sky.

This prompt reminds me of the old game paper/scissors/stone.  Scissors cut paper, paper covers stone, stone breaks Scissors.

I inadvertently left the above  picture out of my Thanksgiving post, and now I’m glad I did.  I love the movement and texture in the potatoes, and the spoon–with the stainless bowl and stem and the wooden handle––is my favorite.  It belongs to a set Bob brought into our marriage.  Most of the pieces have been broken or lost, but these big serving spoons come in handy every time company comes!

This life-sized hand also covered in milagros came home with me!

The wooden barn is to protect the buffalo in a park in Sheridan, Wyoming from harsh Wyoming winters. The metal mesh fence is to protect park visitors from the buffalo!

Thursday Doors on Friday

Thursday Doors on Friday

Version 3 IMG_7840 IMG_7841 IMG_7834In a place where square does not rule the day anyway, it was very hard to get a square take on these doors without having the door blocked by the very ugly black street sign.  The more ornate older sign added to the view, but the ugly black one definitely didn’t!!
