MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…


Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorites…

Define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.


I have a hard time settling on one picture for almost all of the challenges and this one is no different so here goes… my gallery…

Martha’s Vineyard is up first… I can never take enough pictures of my favorite place on the planet. These were taken in October 2017.

Cape May, New Jersey.. April 2017

And of course one must have a favorite flower picture 🙂

But I think one of my favorite pictures is the re-creation my daughter Deb and I did of my mother and grandmother from the 1920’s, standing (and sitting) by the statue of Lincoln in front of the courthouse in Newark, New Jersey.




Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek…

The prompt is: This week, share a peek of something — a photo that reveals just enough of your subject to get us interested. A tantalizing detail. An unusual perspective. Compel us to click through to your post to find out more!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rounded:

The prompt: This week, share your take on “rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations.


I decided to use some pictures from my recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard for my rounded choices.





Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage…

Ah, collages, what to do, what to do !

And of course my beloved Martha’s Vineyard


Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green…

From a green angel with dirty nose, to truck filled with green, to the title of a favorite books, to a green Victorian house, to the lush green grass of Ocean Park in my header picture, and to Dawn who is a special Green 🙂  here are my choices.
