Yesterday, I noticed that the theme of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for the week was sky. Looking up, I found it to be a pleasant surprise to see the moon in the blue sky of day.
At times, the half moon had to peek through the soft clouds floating across the sky.
I always look for images in the clouds. This cloud formation struck me as a Phoenix rising in the sky.
What do you see?
My (5 photo) perception of light and dark through the camera lens.
I have posted the following photos before, but they are among my favorite light/dark shots. So, here they are again!
Post inspired by Cee’s fun photo challenge with the theme of dark and light.
These two Mallard ducks were hanging around a creek when I spotted them. I didn’t mean to bother them, but they got up and walked back toward the water when I got closer than they liked. There was no goose in sight.
I remember playing the childhood game called duck, duck, goose. We sat in a circle and someone walked around the outside of the circle tapping us on the head as they said “duck, duck, goose.” The person tapped as goose had to chase the tapper around the circle, trying to catch them before they took over the empty spot. Seems like it would be hard to jump up and actually catch the tapper but I guess we sometimes did or the game wouldn’t have been fun to play. Is this how you remember the game?
I am posting this for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week with the theme of Duck Duck Goose!

I love the buildings and trees theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.
The first photo, above, is of a home that can be seen nestled among the trees and mountains. I wonder if the view from the house is as beautiful as the view of it!
The next photo, below, was taken during a recent visit to a near-by park. A picnic shelter can be seen through the stark trees that have lost, or are in the process of losing, their leaves.
The third picture shows colorful trees surrounding a gazebo, barn and a historic building that may actually be a town museum. I will have to investigate further! The view is across from a duck pond that I posted about earlier.
I was a bit creative in my final photo selection. The nest in my backyard tree was initially built by a robin. But later in the summer, a crafty squirrel added on to it and claimed it as his own!
I enjoyed searching through my photo archives for this challenge, reminiscing about the day and people attached to each one. Isn’t it great how simple photos can evoke memories and emotions?
I gave my cat an early Thanksgiving present-a catnip turkey toy! He loved it! Stripey may be seventeen but he still loves to play. You can’t throw the toy to him, that’s no fun. You have to throw it away from him, so he can run full force to chase it, bat it around, hold it down and nuzzle it. Okay, bite it, then nuzzle it.
Here, Stripey is nuzzling his prized toy as he purrs loudly. Doesn’t he look content? I sure love my cat, and I am thankful to see his sweet face every day!
