Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge – Day 1

This post was written in response to the Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge, to which I was challenged by GANSU of
The challenge is to post seven black and white photos, no people, no explanation, of everyday life for seven consecutive days.

I’m also supposed to challenge one new blogger each day, but I must admit that may be hardest part, as I must confess I never feel comfortable challenging people, but I’ll try…

Photo: I see faces, July 2016

This is my first entry for the I See Faces challenge promoted by Rosenruthie. The challenge was referred to me after my recent post for WPC: Details and Cee’s Odd Ball earlier this week.

But then I decided that the hearing about I See Faces was enough reason to search for new faces elsewhere, so I’m showing here a face that my daughters and I always see on their stepping stool.

Seeing Mt. Rainier always makes me smile.

Seeing it from above hanging out with his pals Hood, Jefferson and the Sisters is unbelievably cool.


My last Spring break trip with the family was all good, nice and relaxing, but the coolest part was being able to take pictures of big landmarks from above.

I picture the mounts here, but I was also able to identify the Salt Lakes and Canyonlands, both in Utah, until the clouds came and ended my fun.

Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 8 – Charity Christmas Tree Topper Challenge

This past weekend my daughters and I put the Christmas tree up and lighted!

Here’s out three topper.

I bought this one several years ago (before the kids were even born) and it’s still resisting…

I like it because it lights up and also because of the colors that come out from the light reflecting on the translucent plastic.
