A-Z Photo Challenge: “A”

Frizztext is hosting his A-Z photo challenge once again, and we are returning to the beginning of the alphabet.  Last go ’round, I didn’t make it all the way through.  Maybe I’ll do better this time… My submission captures the airport in Atlanta, Georgia at dusk.                  …

TTT Challenge: Tufted Titmouse and Tiny Tim

Tufted Titmouse What a funny name for such a beautiful little bird.  Tufted titmice are small birds that are found in the eastern United States.  They remain year-round and prefer deciduous wooded areas, gardens, parks and shrub land areas.  Their song is a “peter, peter, peter” whistle. Tiny Tim sings “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” A…

SSS Challenge: Sunshine Through the Sourwoods

Although sourwood trees typically turn red in the autumn, several on our property have been a brilliant copper color, possibly from the large amount of rain we had earlier.  Two days ago, the sun shining through the leaves cast a beautiful glow that lit up the entire back of the house.  The sun through the…

QQQ Challenge: Quiet

This week’s A-Z photo challenge, hosted by Frizztext, features the letter “Q,” a  rather difficult one.  I chose to submit a photo of our road blanketed some winters ago in snow, a beautiful, quiet scene.  It is true that a lovely snowfall brings a quiet hush to the world.

“PPP” Challenge: Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins

We made our annual trek to the pumpkin farm yesterday.  (If you’ve seen pumpkin photos recently in my posts, they were from last year.) This year’s visit coincides nicely with Frizztext’s A-Z Challenge this week which features the letter “P”. For more interpretations of “P,” see http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/ppp-challenge/

MMM Challenge: Monster Masks, Monster Shoes, and and the Monster Mash

Frizztext’s A-Z Alphabet Challenge features the letter “M” this week.  My grandson B. loves to wear his monster shoes.  In fact, he sleeps in them every night.  He also likes to wear his monster mask and “frighten” his relatives, and last weekend he convinced his dad to put on a monster mask as well.  So…

LLL Challenge: Lichen

Lichen on the fence “Consider the Lichen. Lichens are just about the hardiest visible   organisms on Earth, but the least ambitious.” ― Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything For more on Frizz’s A-Z Challenge, check out http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/lll-challenge/
