Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic for Younger Days 5

This week Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks that we share a photo that makes us nostalgic.

It was a time when I fully understood Tigger’s, “I’m so happy I feel like bouncing.”

This sprinkler definitely make me nostalgic for simpler times in my children’s life. It invokes memories of a cute little Winnie the Pooh swimsuit and Hot Wheels swimming trunks. I can hear the giggles and squeals in my backyard as they run in and out of the water. Such happy times!

Still I know A. A. Milne’s Pooh is also correct: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable Object or Friend 3

This week’s photo challenge is brought to us by Michelle W. who asks that we share a picture of a companion and explain why we chose that picture. You can read more about it and check out others’ posts by clicking on the link.

Two of my favorite companions are my dogs and I’m grateful for both of them. I did a prior post about my Corgi, so today I’m focusing on my Golden and his favorite companion and no, it’s not me although I know he loves all of his human family and his pet siblings too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes or Actually Mine 7

This week Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks us to share a picture through our eyes observing the scene first and looking for natural lines and frames by trying the skill Ming Thein talks about in this week’s Photography 101 post.

I’m not under any illusion that I have that skill, but I do appreciate the tips offered by Ming to help us improve our photography, so here are my attempts.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves or in Our Case Curves of Life 1

Life has thrown a few curves at my family, so when I saw this week’s photo challenge by Sara Rosso was curves that was my first thought. My next thought was how in the world would I portray that in photos when I no longer blog about the details of our life. Luckily I have a few photos that I think help tell our story.

When life throws you a curve you have to go with it.
