September 3 – Lines

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAHello and Happy Tuesday!  Today’s photo challenge is Lines.

As I was taking photos this morning on my walk home from Ian’s school, I saw lines everywhere.  Funny since I normally don’t notice them like I did today.

I saw the power lines, lines on the sidewalks and buildings, and on the fence in front of our house.  I decided to go with lines on part of the sidewalk.  I thought it was different and made for a cool picture.

Lines also make me think of music and Tuesday Tunes!

Ian has been singing Bon Jovi songs lately, since I love to listen to this group.  It is priceless hearing him sing “Wanted Dead or Alive” and messing up on the words.

Or “It’s My Life.” — “It’s now or never, I ain’t gonna live forever… I just wanna live while I’m alive,”

Every once in a while, he will ask me what the words mean.  I love that he listens so closely and likes to sing along.

Lines of all kinds are all around us and have many different meanings.

Here are a few quotes about lines:

  • “The best listeners listen between the lines.” — Nina Malkin
  • “Straight lines go too quickly to appreciate the pleasures of the journey…” — Rene Crevel
  • Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation.” — Lois Wyse
  • “Just say the lines and don’t trip over the furniture.” — Noel Coward
  • “You know, I’ve got wrinkles on my forehead and smile lines, but what’s wrong with that? I love to smile.” — Jennifer Aniston

I wonder what lines I will see the rest of the day? I will be on the lookout for them.

August 28 – Corridor

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAHello and Happy Wednesday!

Today’s challenge is Corridor, or hallway.

Ian walks down a long one to get to his classroom, but I didn’t have the camera with me this morning.

So I decided to use an outdoor corridor.  This is a long deck along the back of a house we visited.  It is pretty and I think gets the idea.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

July 29 – Perspective

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAAnother Monday and it finally isn’t going to be raining!  I am so thrilled about that!

Just three days left of July’s Photo-A-Day Challenge.  I haven’t done a photo each day but most of them.  It has been so much fun.

Today’s challenge is Perspective.  I took three photos for today.  What do you think?

The first is looking up at a beautiful and very tall tree, the second is a line of blocks along a driveway, and the third is a drain along that same driveway.  It is actually empty in the picture.

I loved all of the detail of this amazing and very tall tree.  I want to reach out and touch this bark and sit under the canopy of leaves.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe blocks are also interesting and starting to show their wear and tear.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAFor the drain, this reminds me of the side of a bowling alley.

I wonder what other perspectives we can find today that are different and unusual?  It should be fun to find out!!  Have a great start to your week.
