Someone mentioned in a comment on one of my “Life through the Lens” photos that I should look into the Sunday Stills challenge. I had not heard of this and have actually been curious about some of the different “Day” themes and challenges I have seen on many blogs.
The current Sunday Still challenge is Black and White or Sepia. As most of you are beginning to discover, I have a slight hobby of taking random pictures…other than my usual Miss Stella photos.
I took this photo at sunset when driving down a country road. Cliché as that sounds, it is true. Actually not while driving, we did stop the car off the road to take the picture. The sunset was absolutely amazing and we noticed another car also trying to capture the moment.
I captured this at a neighboring field. I am not sure exactly why, but this crop has always caught my eye when I drove by a field of it. The color, texture, and movement has such simple beauty.
This is actually a photo of a broken tree branch (thank you Miss Stella!) and some of the flowers (also broken from the bush…thank you again Miss Stella!) from one of our Butterfly Bushes. I knew they would attract butterflies, but I never realized how many…and the bees!
This would be Miss Stella…staring at me…letting me know she would like some attention…please. Speaking of attention, she and I were on a brief walk (still waiting to have stitches removed and get the go-ahead on more public adventures than just the vet and our back yard) and one of our neighbors wanted to take a picture … ‘of the bear’! They fell in love with Newfoundlands as they had never seen one before. I could not help but laugh…more have fallen under the spell of Newfness.
