Macro Moments Challenge: Week 27

Week 24 of Macro Moments from Musin’ with Susan (   (  Just to remind you (and me), here’s how the challenge works:

  • Choose a favorite macro photo  from the past week or from your archives.
  • Add the photo to your post and a brief description. I would love to know, as I am sure others would, too,  what camera and lens you used and your settings.

I did do a bit of post-production on this shot in my Camera+app, but it was a macro setting and I kind of liked how it turned out…

Flower of the Day: January 18, 2017

Cee’s Flower of the Day (

It’s raining outside and I don’t want to go out to take pictures of flowers today.  So, instead, here is a picture of yet another one at this time last year.  Man, I can hardly wait until my Hellebores are blooming!!


Storm coming.

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

This is what the sky looked like yesterday morning.  You could easily have been fooled into thinking it was going to be a nice day, but in fact there was nastiness on the horizon!

Share Your World – January 16, 2017

And now for this week’s Share Your World (

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

If I had a choice, and the closet had a door, it would be closed!  I’m not taking any chances.

Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?

You mean I have a choice?

What is your usual bedtime?

Define “usual”.  There is a “usual” workday, and a “usual” weekend…

Do you like to use post-it notes?

No…not me…no post-it notes here…

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?

I don’t understand.

Any phobias?

Is there a right answer to this question?  Will this be on the exam??


How tall are you?

Tall enough to ride the roller-coaster, but wise enough to say no thanks.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Big and Small

For this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:  Big and Small.  (

“This week the topic is Big and Small and New.  You can have big and small objects in the same photo.  Or you can have at least one photo of a very large item and one photo of a very small item in your photo.  What I am looking for is great contrast.  Use your imagination if you want for this theme.  The thing is to have a lot of fun with this challenge.”

I could not resist reposting these!
