Photo Challenge #3 / Wait Up

20201227ma_2317“Runaway Sled” / Theme: Wait Up⁠

A little about this photo…

You probably can’t quite tell, but that sled is running away and the chase is on! It was rather funny to watch. She did manage to catch up, eventually.⁠

20201227ma_2240“On the Lake” / Theme: In the Cold

A little about this photo…

Grabbed this shot while out for some fresh air along the lake. There’s something so deliciously wintery about this photo.

Photo Challenge #1 / Letting Go

20201225ma_2218“Snowy Boots” / Theme: Letting Go

A little about this photo…

These boots got left outside overnight and ended getting a little bit… snowy. Somehow, this photo speaks to me of 2020 turning into 2021. The boots look like they’ve had quite the year, with the fresh snow representing a fresh start. As I was searching for the right prompt, I found the “Letting Go” prompt. Not that it’s hard to let go of 2020! I think we’re all ready to welcome the New Year!

Photo Challenge #52 / By Candlelight

20201224ma_2192“Time for Bed” / Theme: By Candlelight

A little about this photo…

I’ve been saving this “By Candlelight” prompt for the end of the year. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I came up with this on Christmas Eve… I’m really happy with how it turned out. Even better than I expected!

P.S. Curious as to the book in my hand? Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery. I just grabbed it from the shelf as I wanted something green to contrast with the red shawl. (Not sure you can tell it’s a green cover, but it is.) Happy Christmas! See you next year…

Photo Challenge #51 / All Is Calm

20201218xs_0921“Stille Nacht” / Theme: All Is Calm

A little about this photo…

I’m posting this for Christmas… which is less than a week away! For me, Silent Night (Stille Nacht) is probably the song that feels the most like Christmas. And I’ve always loved the story of how the song came to be. If you don’t already know the story, here’s the quick version. It was Christmas Eve in Austria in 1818. Pastor Joseph Mohr went to see the choir master/organist, Franz Gruber with a poem he had written and asked Gruber to set it to music. In just a few hours, Gruber composed the melody for Stille Nacht. And he did it for guitar music! Why? Because the church organ had been damaged due to flooding. (Check out this link for the full story.)

P.S. The organ featured above is very much a working organ. No flood damage, thank you very much. I love how all the pipes are part of the whole presentation.

Photo Challenge #50 / Heritage

20201122ma_2062“Sewing Basket” / Theme: Heritage

A little about this photo…

I inherited this sewing basket quite a few years ago. It originally belonged to my great-grandmother. So, this thing is probably at least 100 years old by now! And even though it has a handle at the top, you have to be careful. That handle (after 100 years) is not very reliable.

2021 Photography Challenge

2021-weekly-pic

It’s that time of year again. Time for me to post my 2021 Weekly Photo Challenge… with a whole new set of photo prompts for a new year!

Here are the rules: Each Saturday, starting in January, join me in posting a photo. The above list of the prompts is meant to help inspire us. The order does NOT matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.

Bonus! If you count the number of prompts, you’ll find there are more prompts than necessary to complete the year. That’s because I find it a little easier to complete some prompts over others. So, if there’s one that’s really stumping you, no problem! You can skip it.

Want to join me? Please make sure to include the tag #2021picoftheweek so I can check out your posts! I’d love to see what kind of photos you come up with.

See you in the New Year! 🙂
