Photo Challenges


I am participating in the 30 Days of Photographs III challenge hosted by Ziva and MikeWJ. And it’s costing me my sanity. Not really, but I thought that made a good segue into today’s theme – coins.

I wanted to do something special, but what could top my co-blogger Mike’s magic nickel? I even thought of posting a picture depicting the phrase I’ve coined – sucks monster moose cock – but co-blogger Mike refused to help me out with that. Some friend he is. So, instead I have this wonderfully low-quality, blurry photo of coins from around the world.

euro, canadian coins, american coins, canadian quarter, moosehead quarter

For those of you wondering about that phrase I’ve coined, please note the moose’s head on the Canadian quarter. It’s a Canuck thing. We have a moose fixation.

But I also decided to post another picture because MikeWJ asked for it and I hate to disappoint him. (Ok, truthfully, he cries like a little girl when he doesn’t get his way. It’s disturbing.)

So, just for you, my friend.

high heel shoes, stilettoes, sparkly shoes

My other new favourite shoes.

Now go check out the pot of gold coins at the end of the post over at Ziva’s blog.

  • if I had a nickel for every pair of great shoes you own, I would have more than $17!

  • Nice to see your participation for a “change”. But if you’ve been missing because you’ve been out shoe shopping, I completely understand.

  • You really shouldn’t give in to MWJ like that – he’ll just keep asking for more, like a kid near a cookie jar… cute new favoUrites!

  • Skype. Right. Now. Bring the shoes.

  • Barb Paige

    cute shoes…bet they cost a lot of coins 😉

  • Tami Von Zalez

    Yowza! queue the sexy music ~

  • Very interesting phrase you coined. What was Mike supposed to do to help you illustrate it? Or am I better off not knowing?

  • I think your moose needs some redesigning. It’s a mangy look thing & your moose deserves better.

  • Forget about the moose. You have shown again, it’s all about the shoes. Wow! And those are my size!

  • Well, that sucks monster moose cock! (Nothing wrong here… just trying the phrase out for size. So how large IS a monster moose’s cock, anyway? Or is that a secret only Canucks can know?)

  • “So, instead I have this wonderfully low-quality, blurry photo of coins from around the world.”

    That made me laugh out loud, for real.

    And I am madly in love with those shoes. Holy fabulousness!

  • ladyV

    those shoes are fierce. love the heels on ’em even though i can’t rock a heel that high. looks good on you.

    send me all the american money you don’t wont

  • Jamie Baker

    Photo one, with it’s accompanying description, made me laugh. Photo two made me aspirate a chocolate coin and break into a sweat. Heavens, it it just me or is it hot in here?

  • Laughing, choking and sweating. My work here is done. 🙂

  • Thanks V. I actually have a hard time walking in flats – and by flats I mean 3″ heels!

    Um, okay. You should be receiving the invisible envelope any day now. 🙂

  • What can I say? I have no illusions whatsoever about my photographic skills. 🙂

    Aren’t they freakin’ awesome? They sparkle. I love them.

  • Boom Boom, a monster moose cock is roughly 1,000 times the size of a regular moose cock. Give or take 990 times. And I’m only telling you because you visited Dufus, which makes you an honorary Canuck. 🙂

  • That’s right, they are your size. Hmmm, Christmas is coming up pretty quickly, isn’t it? 🙂

  • It’s not mangy, Cheryl. It’s Canadian. 🙂

  • Hah! The plural of moose is meese 🙂

  • Hihihihi, thanks Tami! Although, the picture was taken in my office. Not a very sexy environment. 🙂

  • Thanks Barb, but they were surprisingly reasonably priced. Not that it would have mattered. 🙂

  • I have déjà vu. And I like it.

  • *stands and sings O Canada!*

  • So very awesome!

  • I couldn’t help it, LM. And if it means I’ll have to continue buying new shoes, well, I’ll just have to force myself. 🙂

    Thank you for spelling favourites the right way!

  • I appreciate your understanding, Dufus. I always knew you were a man with abundance of common cents.

  • Not a chance! You’d only have $14.50 – tops! 🙂

  • I wish you and Max and Jepeto would come down for Christmas! (We can always stick JP in the man cave if he misbehaves.

    I like what I see. So much so, that I’m not sure what to say. “You have pretty shoes” or “nice gams” seems woefully inadequate. 

    Perhaps a simple “thank you” would do, but I’m not known from being taciturn and everybody would know I was being disingenuous. I could thank God for His wondrous and bountiful creation, but I’m not sure He would entirely approve of my line of thought. I could be effusively hedonistic in my approach, but then I risk seeming pervy, or getting punched in the face by Jepeto. 

    And so I’m sitting here, at a loss for words.

    It’s so rare for me, that I’m actually frightened to be alone right now.

  • Mikewj

    I’m not a kid, and it’s not the cookie jar….

    Wait! There are cookies, too?

  • MikeWJ

    Thank you, Katherine.

    Oh! You mean Nicky. Boy is my face red.

    I think that’s my face.

  • Hah! You know he’d end up spending ALL his time in there, right?

  • *waves a maple leaf at you while wiping a tear away*

  • All that to say I win, right?

  • Naw, just gorgeous shoes, Katherine. But thank you 🙂
