Macro Moments Challenge: Week 11

Week 10 of Macro Moments from Musin’ with Susan (https://musinwithsusan.com).   (https://musinwithsusan.com/2016/08/31/macro-moments-challenge-week-11/).  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.

WTF happened to Summer??

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fierce/

When I got to work yesterday morning, I saw this:

I mean, when did that happen??  Well, at least that means it might rain now…Ah, hell.  I like fall better anyway!  Means Hallowe’en is a’comin’!

When I got home from work, I found a few more gems in the garden.

Not a huge, multi-meal harvest, but there is more to come!

As for Elliot, I am thinking he could care less that summer is over.  What do you think?

A foggy day in…

You know the rest of that particular ditty, although yesterday it was here in Victoria, and only in the morning.  But still, foggy morning and wiping off the car windows means fall is indeed here.

Kitties?  They remained unfussed by the foghorns, after all, they have more important things to do.

Three Line Tales – Week 30: What time is it?

This challenge comes from Sonya at Only100Words (https://only100words.xyz/2016/08/25/three-line-tales-week-thirty/) , and here are the rules:

“Write three lines to go with the weekly photo prompt (the photos I use are either royalty-free or I’ve been given permission by the photographer to use them; please credit where appropriate) – sideways interpretation is encouraged. The photo is the launch point – take us wherever you fancy.”

Too late for the official round-up, but here is mine!

Ok, dude.  I can see it’s 5:30.  But where do you find the keyboard for texting?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

“This week, I’d love for you to look at things a bit differently. Whether it’s through an actual picture frame, a few stalks of grass, or even the spokes of a bicycle tire, find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see!”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/frame/)

No words needed…

Cee’s Which Way Challenge: August 24, 2016

And today for Cee’s Which Way Challenge! (https://ceenphotography.com/2016/08/24/cees-which-way-photo-challenge-august-24-2016/)

“This all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.”

I need to first thank Cee for honouring me as a featured blogger for my last Which Way post (https://zombieflamingoes.com/2016/08/22/cees-which-way-challenge-august-17-2016/).  T022414-feature-bannerhanks Cee!! (https://ceenphotography.com/2016/08/24/cees-which-way-photo-challenge-august-24-2016/)

And now for this week!

Which way do I go??

What if I need something that’s not on this list?

What if I want to go Out?
