September Photo Challenge: Black and White

It’s literally been months since we’ve participated in P.J.s monthly photo challenge. In fact, it’s been that long since I’ve even logged into WordPress. Did you know that WordPress is now up to version 4.0? It happened while we were away. Also, there were like 50 million plugins to update as well upon logging in […]

June 2014 Photo Challenge: Vehicles

It’s another month and therefore another attempt at stretching P.J’s monthly theme thanks to a complete lack of preparedness on my part. So, this month’s theme is Vehicles. Here’s what we have: 1. Rail crossing in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu – notice the complete absence of vehicles. (yes, there’s the roof of a car peeking out there on […]

May Photo Challenge: Fun

This is my latest submission ever to P.J.’s monthly photo challenge, but hopefully the linky thing hasn’t expired and I can still squeeze in my 5 for the month. This month’s theme is “Fun”, and I was hard pressed to find fun photos since I barely took out my camera at all this month. In […]

April Photo Challenge: Smile

It’s the end of another month which calls for another quintet of photos for P.J.’s Monthly Photo Challenge. This month’s theme is “Smile”. “That’ll be easy!”, thought I. After all, spring is here and lots of people will be out and about flashing their smiles in the glorious sun as it warms their pasty arms […]

Photo Challenge: One

I don’t know where the last month went, but it went, and it went by fast! As the month of March came to a snow covered end, I also realized that I hadn’t taken a single photo with P.J.’s March Photo Challenge in mind. Well, maybe I did, subconsciously, so I’ll just shut up about […]

Red Things and Exploding Brains

Today is the last day of February, aka the day we post things for P.J.’s monthly photo challenge. It is also the last day of Nicky’s (I keep saying I had nothing to do with it, but no one believes me) 28 Day Writing Challenge and today’s prompt for that is “And Then My Brain […]

January Photo Challenge: New

Well, another month has passed and it’s time to post another batch of photos for P.J.’s Monthly Photo Challenge. The theme for January 2014 is New, and I have nothing. All month. In fact, looking through the the last 31 days of photos on my phone and camera, I’m inclined to agree with my last […]

December Photo Challenge: Festive

And we’re back with another quintet of photos for December’s Photo Challenge. This is the last challenge of the year unless someone tacked on another month without telling me. That would be crazy. This month’s theme is ‘Festive‘ which initially filled me with dread because all I could think of was 5 photos of Xmas […]

November Photo Challenge: People

Another month has just about bitten the dust which means that it’s already time to submit some photos for P.J.’s monthly photo challenge. This month’s theme is “People” and I have to admit that taking pictures of people is a huge challenge for me. On one hand, there’s the issue of privacy and posting photos […]

Spooky October Photo Challenge: Fall

So October is almost over and you all know what happens at the end of the month, right?  No, not THAT thing. The OTHER thing aka P.J.’s monthly photo challenge. This month’s theme is Fall, as in Autumn, or Fall as in falling down drunk because I drank too much for everybody’s birthdays (but mostly […]

September Photos: Berries, Grass and Urbanism

Photo Challenges just never seem to end, do they? As I sat down to put together something for P.J.’s September Photo Challenge while still reeling from Ziva and Mike WJ’s 30 Days of Photographs, I realized that the 30 day challenge came a day after P.J.‘s August challenge, so this will be the 32nd day […]

30 Days of Photos IV: Happily Ever After

Today is Day 30 (FINALLY) of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photo challenge. Today’s prompt is Happily Ever After and I was this close to interpreting this prompt as UN-Happily Ever After, after 29 days of pure hell. Ok, so it wasn’t all bad and the despair didn’t really kick in until maybe the second […]

30 Days of Photos IV: Circle

Today is Day 29 of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photo challenge and the prompt is Circle. It’s a speaker. Music or any other kind of sound comes out of it. If you put your ear close to this one and listen real carefully, you might hear a faint voice saying, “hang on…it’s almost over….it’s […]

30 Days of Photos IV: Lover

Today is Day 28 of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photo challenge and the prompt is Lover. We crossed paths one sunny afternoon A lover of plants, she offered me her spade And asked if I would tend to her garden I knew it was a euphemism But I just couldn’t get past her nose […]

30 Days of Photos IV: NSEW

It’s almost over. It’s almost over. Today is Day 27 of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photo challenge and the prompt is NSEW. What a perfect opportunity to post a cat photo, which I’m sure everyone else thought when they saw the prompt. Here’s a cat looking South. He was also looking in every other […]
