Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered…

Share a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture, you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Structure…

I tend to like abandoned structures and also stone walls,  in looking through my photographs I came across not actual stone walls but the stone wall ruins of an abandoned woolen mill in Dingman’s Ferry, PA.

Around 1826 Joseph Brooks, a Welshman who had immigrated to Philadelphia built a woolen mill of stone, 3 1/2 stories high in Dingmans Ferry.  He employed about 80 workers.

His sheep however, were devoured by wolves or died from eating poisonous laurel.  Supplies, operatives and materials such as expensive raw wool, had to be brought in from Philadelphia and the finished products shipped back to Philadelphia by wagons, a trip which took 10 days.  Brooks died in 1832 and the mill was abandoned.  Here are my pictures of the ruins of the mill.

Thomas Edison’s library in West Orange, New Jersey.  I love the idea of a bed in the corner.

High Point monument in the northwestern corner of New Jersey where NJ/PA/NY meet.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shiny…

What is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I didn’t know what to do for ‘Shiny’ and then today my daughter and I took a ride to Jersey City, NJ to have coffee and enjoy the view.  Talk about shiny.  The shiny glass buildings reflecting the sky and other buildings, definitely shiny.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting…

The prompt:  You can find similar reflections and changes in perspective just about anywhere. From water and glass to metallic surfaces, share a photo that captures something reflected back to you in a way that made you look at your surroundings differently.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From a log in a river, to the Chrysler Building in NYC, to a restaurant in NJ, to a mirror reflecting a mirror reflecting a window, to docks on Martha’s Vineyard… these are my selections for ‘reflecting.’

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense…

The prompt is : This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape, or take the theme in a different direction, from a crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was going to try and stay away from fog, trees, flowers, food, cities but you know what, that’s where all the density seems to be.  So from boats in a dense fog, to a house covered in  lilacs, to the skyline of New York City, to chocolate cake and candy, to the dense colors of freshly spun yarn, and to the density of a sunflower, , here are my choices.
