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.



October On Martha’s Vineyard…


October is, in my opinion one of the most spectacular months of the year.

No place is better for experiencing it than on Martha’s Vineyard.

Nature provides a fiery display of color in October, the greens and vivid colors of summer have been replaced with the rusts and orange hues of autumn.

The Vineyard is a beautiful place to visit in the fall … there are plenty of activities to take part in or just relax and enjoy the cool, crisp, beautiful month of October.

Here comes October……


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: Waiting…

The prompt for this challenge is to show what waiting looks like.  My first thought was  the anticipation of little bulbs turning into beautiful flowers.


And then my next thought was one of my favorite pictures of our late dog, Chappy.  What might he be waiting for, a biscuit, a walk,or his mommy coming home !
