Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

“This week, share a photo of something that brings you satisfaction. It can be monumental, minor, or something in between. We can’t wait to see your contributions.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/satisfaction/)

Nothing says “satisfaction” like a peacock in a tree 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge

“For this challenge, interpret the theme “bridge.” You can go the same route as I did and capture any type or style of bridge where you are, or go deeper and take a snapshot of something or someone that acts as a bridge in your life: a link, a connection, a mediator.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/bridge/)

I haven’t done one of these in awhile, but I had a few bridge pictures from the vacation, so I thought, hey…this is a good time to get back to this challenge!

These are all shots of the bridge running from near the National Gallery in Ottawa to the Canadian Museum of History in Hull/Gatineau.

Here is the bridge from the Peace Tower

Up close and personal as we walk across the bridge on Canada Day!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

“This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape like I did, or take the theme in a different direction, from a sweaty crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/dense/)

Dense with blossoms…finally!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

“Experimenting with our point of view in a photograph allows us to establish a setting, tell a specific story, or rethink our own perspective. This week, consider your point of view as you respond to this challenge’s theme, “Atop.” If you’re physically on top of a thing or a place — a mountain, a skyscraper — what type of scene do you want to share in your frame? Consider, too, other interpretations of “Atop” — what does it mean or look like to be on top of a soapbox? A bestseller list? The world?”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/atop/)

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

“This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life. You should by no means limit yourself to edible stuff — You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/a-good-match/)

A VERY satisfying pairing…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

“This week, hunt for shadows and incorporate them into your shot. The shadow can be the focal point of the image, or simply a detail that adds texture and makes the scene a bit more dynamic. We look forward to your submissions!”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/shadow-2017/)

Taking advantage once more of the amazing snow pictures I took yesterday!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude

“This week, show us what being alone means to you. If you’re finding yourself surrounded by too many people, or too many sensations, or too many obligations, take a quiet moment for yourself. Seek solitude, and reset. Or, perhaps you find yourself isolated too often, and solitude evokes negative emotions that photography can help you work through.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/solitude/)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Repurpose

“For this challenge, show us something you’ve put to new use. Maybe it’s an old hammock that now forms the climbing wall for your clematis. Perhaps it’s as simple as the matchbook that supports the short leg of your chair. It could be the shedding hair you comb from your dog that will warm the birds’ nests around you. All out of clever? Look to your family, friends, and neighbors — what canny bit of DIY recycling ingenuity has recently impressed you?”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/repurpose/)

In today’s Daily Post, I mentioned we had cleaned out some things from the backyard at our rental property that we have sold.  This is one of those things.

This is an old stove that we rescued from Kevin’s parents’ home when we moved his mom into a condo many years ago.  It sat in our backyard in Regina, and then we moved it here but had left it behind in our rental’s yard until yesterday.  Now, in the next few weeks as I clean up the yard for Spring(!), we will be thinking about its permanent home in our backyard here.  When we have it sorted out, I, of course, will show it off to you!  Now, what plants should I put in it??

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

“For this week’s challenge, share something that says “graceful” to you: from a couple dancing a smooth tango or a skyscraper soaring with ease above the skyline, to a leaf that dropped just so atop a moss-covered rock. You can focus on people, animals, architecture, or objects — or go for an abstract shot where the composition itself channels a fluid, streamlined essence.”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/graceful/)

I posted this picture earlier this week, but I do think it also fits the theme of Graceful.  Lovely little Hellebores ready to pop!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

“What have you photographed with exceptional ambience? Perhaps you’ve visited a spectacular garden, indulged in a candlelit dinner, experienced a roaring fireplace on a cold night, or enjoyed some laughter with friends in a wonderful place?  We look forward to seeing the photos you share!”  (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/ambience/)

A little ambience in our office…
