Prompt:What would you rather be doing?
Goes without saying 🙂
Why this picture? Is it a double exposure or is it not. So what’s the story !!!!!!
My daughter Deb is a twin. Her sister Susan was only with us for a few hours.
Katy (Katama) was Deb’s first Boykin Spaniel. She was our first dog to go on vacation with us, no big surprise that it was to MV. Katy left us after 20 months and we feel that she’s now with Susan.
Below is Chappy (Chappaquiddick) who was Deb’s next Boykin Spaniel.
We took lots of pictures of Chappy’s first trip to the Vineyard in 2002, especially on the beach and in the water. He really enjoyed splashing about and barking at waves. These pictures show a little of his fun at the beach.
And then there’s this picture:
Is this a double exposure ! Or is it Deb and Chappy with Susan and Katy ? You be the judge. Just let me say that my non-digital camera had never, until that day, taken a double exposure and never did so afterwards !!!!
My mother, Maude Louise Littlefield Freeman was born in Waterville, Maine on March 11, 1907.
(my mother and her mother Albra Mae Flewelling Littlefield Grant Baird)
The picture below is one of my most favorite pictures of all time…
Raised on Martha’s Vineyard… that’s my mother and grandmother at their house on Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs, 1924
After graduating from Oak Bluffs High School in 1926 she moved to Newark, NJ where she met, and married a Jersey boy… Joseph Albert Freeman
and had a Jersey girl (me)…
The prompt: share a photo and make it look and feel like something out of this world. Feel free to interpret the theme as loosely as you see fit.
Could this be a walkway used by astronauts to get to another world ! That’s what it always looked like to me, especially after I got done photo shopping it.
Here’s the original picture which was taken at the Cooper Gristmill in Chester, NJ
I’ve been to Martha’s Vineyard in February and I love it. I love it any time but February is as different from summer on the Vineyard as you can possibly get.
There’s a cold crispness in the air, the colors are more vivid, the Island is quiet and yet speaks volumes to those who take the time to look, listen and drink in the beauty and wonder that is the soul of Martha’s Vineyard.
February 1989… a light dusting of snow made everything look like powdered sugar had fallen all over the Island.
February 1995… no snow that trip but bitter cold. Did not stop me from visiting the Gay Head cliffs in Aquinnah on the western most tip of the Vineyard… or hiking through the woods of Christiantown to visit the tiny chapel there. (Christiantown link)
I also experimented a bit with black and white film. From top left… Edgartown harbor, Christiantown stone wall..Sengekontacket Pond and South Beach.
February 2007… bitter cold, dusting of over night snow, icy ponds and harbors… and brilliant sunsets.
My birthday is in February and sadly the only one I’ve ever spent on the Vineyard was in 1950 when my beloved godmother, Gertrude Norris passed away. But I’m not anywhere near done having birthdays so who knows what the future will bring 🙂
Prompt : Create an image that represents being “a face in the crowd.”
This isn’t a face in the crowd, it is however, a crowd of faces.
I took this picture of the Phantom of the Opera poster outside the theatre in New York City in January 2016. It shows faces of performers through its then 28th year on Broadway. It celebrated its 30th anniversary in January of this year and in March I’ll be seeing it for the 3rd time.
