Photo Challenges


Today is Day 12 of the 30 Days of Photographs IV challenge (aka Bob) hosted by Ziva and MikeWJ and the prompt is Tremor.


I was sitting in my living room, noshing on some Babybel and reading the various definitions of Tremor, hoping against hope that something I read would inspire me.

I had just come across a Google result for the Kevin Bacon film – SPOILER ALERT – about gigantic slug-like creatures (except they move really fast) that tunnel around underground waiting for unsuspecting people to come down from electrical towers or bounce down the street on pogo sticks so they pop up from the Earth in an explosion of dust and dirt and eat them.

I actually considered staging a photo of Babybel coming up through my floor, but then changed my mind. See, we redid our floors this summer and I’m still feeling rather passionate about them and don’t like the thought of even pretending that they’ve been destroyed by slug-like monsters.

So, I continued to ponder this prompt and reached for another Babybel. There were none left. And for no particular reason – no particular reason, at all – that made me think of the physical symptoms of addiction withdrawal:

  • Sweating
  • Racing heart
  • Palpitations
  • Muscle tension
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Tremor
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea


I don’t know why I thought of that. I really don’t. And I don’t know why my hands shook when I took this photo of the empty Babybel package. And I really have no clue as to why I threw up afterwards. Must be the flu.

Now go visit Ziva’s blog to see who else has the DTs participated. I’ll be by there later. I have to see a guy about a thing, first.

  • Number 1 – you used yesterday’s topic for the title. (This comment will look strange after you fix it)

    Number B – My god woman, how much cheese do you eat! Those symptoms you mention, Sweating, Racing heart,Palpitations, Muscle tension,Tightness in the chest, Difficulty breathing,Tremor,Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea are signs of coronary artery disease.

  • You haven’t fixed your title yet. How could you actually run out of a cheese? I am in shock 😉

  • Nice. You got it.

  • Vomiting or diarrhea? Really? Lucky you. Now you’re set for tomorrow’s prompt.

  • “And I don’t know why my hands shook when I took this photo of the empty

    Bahahahahha! Yeah, let’s just say you have the flu!

  • Thank god, the cheese is gone. Does this mean you won’t post a cheese photo tomorrow?

  • If I don’t post a cheese photo tomorrow, that would just be “wrong”. 😉

  • Yes, a mysterious 20-minute flu that disappeared right after I stopped at the grocery store. Very strange. 🙂

  • Now *that* would be wrong! 🙂

  • Thanks!

  • My title? *whistles* Whatever do you mean about my title, Babs? 😉

    Naw, I found a “stash” that I put away for just such occasions!

  • Number 146 – This comment looked strange before I fixed it.

    Numeral X – So?

  • ReformingGeek

    Let the cutting of the cheese begin.

    Kidding. Let the cleaning up of that mess begin.

    Kidding. Nice shaking!

  • Very strange, indeed!

  • Tami Von Zalez

    I was enjoying the Babybel series!

    My post Tremors along the same lines

  • I’m waiting for the day I post the wrong photo, let alone title 🙂

  • That happens to me sometimes when I wait too long to eat, which by the way doesn’t happen too often. You must get more cheese – I was enjoying the adventures of Babybel, too.

  • Great minds think alike! (At least I know that someone besides me has seen Tremors.) I do hope you ran right to the store to get more Babybel… wouldn’t want you to suffer!

  • MalisaHargrove

    You are pushing it, girl. You are pushing the boundaries. But I love it!

  • Ah ha ha like me with coffee!

    I bet you own stock in babybell… at least after this challenge! Love it!

  • I saw that movie. I think your photo accurately depicts an addict’s frenzied last moments after using the last cheese.

  • Babybel should pay you for the advertising.

  • Oh noooooooo. You ran out of cheese? What’s wrong with Jepeto?

  • Jackal

    wot no cheese?
