A fortunate synchronicity that Cee’s prompt this week was photos of individual things, since last week at Open Circle, I for some reason was driven to bring out my camera and in looking at the photos, I realized that all the photos I took were of individual living things. One little bird that remained alone on that wire for at least 20 minutes. One little sprig of hair sproutin from the head of a man five rows in front of me. Was it in the no-man’s land between the extent of his reach on each side or a unique styling decision? One little flower on a tree far away with one little bee mining it, and one squirrel that descended the tree next to the speaker, distracting all of her listeners. Then, by the time I could get my camera out, it had run up the tree and out on this limb to disappear into the foliage.

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge
From the unusual shape of my friend Harriet’s lipstick to my false nail, here are some strange shapes I thought might work for this prompt of “Unusual Shapes.”
For the Photo Challenge: Unusual Shape.
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.
Here and There!
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 large wooden heart shown in the Maestros del Arte Feria is covered in metal milagros.
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!
The wood married to metal of the scaffold is echoed in the wooden handle and iron head of the hammer.
Thursday Doors on Friday
In 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!!
