Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Week 7…

I took a little break from blogging the last couple of weeks after I spiked a fever and was forced to admit that I was in fact sick and not just suffering from allergies. Then my husband had some time off from work and my cat had a vet appointment that resulted in him having all of his remaining teeth pulled. So I now have a toothless cat. (He has a condition called Stomatitis that caused his immune system to attack his teeth.)

I have 3 weeks worth of questions to catch up on for the Share Your World challenge, but I don’t feel like tackling that right now. So instead I’m going to share some photos for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge. These are some closeups I took of a wind chime we have hanging in our bedroom.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Purple…

Purple is my favorite color, so I’ve been looking forward to the topic of “purple” ever since I started participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge a few weeks ago and saw it was coming up.

Here are my submissions.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Nature…

I know that I’m late in submitting for this challenge, but when I saw the prompt of Found In Nature for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge a week ago I thought that I could probably get some good photos for it along the walking trail behind my apartment complex.

577 photos later…

Luckily I never intended to keep all the photos that I took and was able to discard about 300 or so photos, but the process of going through and choosing which photos to keep and then cleaning them up took much longer than I expected it to. Not to mention figuring out which photos were suitable for being turned into black & white photos.

Anyway, here are my submissions.

Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge: Week 3…

This is my submission for Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge this week.

Duck riding a tank

This is my husband’s four footed plush magnetic duck riding his metal “tank bank”. The only staging that was done for this photo was moving it from the bedroom to the dining room table to take the picture.

Oh and bonus points if you realized there was something off about the duck before I pointed out it has four feet. 😉
