Cosmic Photo Challenge: Blue

On reading the prompt for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Pick a Colour I immediately thought of blue. In part because when I read the prompt I was picking photos for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Yellow and blue is the complimentary colour to yellow.

I suspect that another reason for thinking blue was because of the blue, yellow and red butterfly garden ornaments I walk past on some of my walks around the neighborhood and that I have been taking photos of for the past few winters.

CFFC: Roofs of Any Kind

Two photos came to mind when I read the prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs of Any Kind.

So here’s the two roof photos taken around 40 years apart.

Raindrops on a car roof photographed in the late 1970s. I know the approximate date because it’s the car my father had when I was in art school.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos I had taken waiting for various birds and mammals to make an appearance in front of the lens.

The following shots were taken in our yard in 2018 when I was doing my 52 week photo project.

I noticed the way a beam of light was illuminating a patch of Maple leaves.

I set up in the yard to photograph birds in the rain. When the birds weren’t cooperating I photographed rain drops.

Simplicity.

Lying in the grass I photographed a Clover flower while waiting for a bird or mammal to appear.

Raindrops

The new A Photo a Week Challenge is Raindrops.

I had a few ideas for the challenge and decided to go with a small selection of raindrop photos.

Virginia Spiderwort flower.

A Virginia Spiderwort flower after rain. Wort used in the names of plants and herbs can mean that the species was traditionally used medicinally or as food.

The plant is native to eastern North America. It is commonly grown in gardens and this flower was photographed in Cheshire, England.
