It's hard to work on a photo challenge on a day like this. Or it is for me- I really wasn't armed with much protective equipment. My expensive camera was covered with a plastic grocery bag as I tromped around in the rain trying to get at least one shot that was worthy of posting on the 365 page. Where it will be scrutinized by a peer group of photographers. I picked a pine log covered in lichen. My remaining shots I've been playing with tonight while watching the dog show and have had some editing fun. Here are the runner ups.
I couldn't decide which photo to choose. I've been waiting to find out what our new challenge is for the week and it still has not been posted (grrrrr) so I was looking at other challenges and I saw one for beauty in the eye of the beholder. Meaning, something that is beautiful to you but might not be considered beautiful to other people. It caused me to go back and look at my photos and think about why I chose them. It could have been easy to pick my mother's silver collection but then I would imagine it's something others would think it pretty. That's when I knew that my photo of the day had to be the pine log. I wouldn't let my husband burn it this summer or in the fall because I love it's shape, I love the lichen, and I love where it came from, and most of all I love who brought it to me. So here was my Grand Champion. My Banana Joe of photos.
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
