Cee’s B&W Challenge: Walls – Indoors or Outdoors

When I read “outdoor” walls I immediately thought of this cliff wall that I saw in Skagway Alaska.

When visiting new places I enjoy walking through the alley ways and seeing what the typical tourist does not see.

DP Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme

“This week, use your camera to discover the endless variety that one thing can contain.”

I took these photos several months ago in a friend’s art studio. At the time I had no idea if I would ever use them for anything. But I loved the colors and the various sizes of chalk  lined in the wooden box.IMG_4647

Now The Daily Post is asking for “…endless variety of one thing.” My mind immediately went to these photos.IMG_4646

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

We frequently take trips to West Texas to visit family. I enjoy stopping to take photos of abandon buildings, store fronts and houses.

This is a building in Tahoka Texas. PW abandon

It is an abandon grocery store.  If you look closely at the weather worn painting on the side of the building you can make out, Piggly Wiggly. This is a grocery store chain mostly found in the south of the United States. I was actually surprised to learn that this chain still exists. I guess because I’ve never seen an open one.Piggly Wiggly

On the opposite side of the building was a weather worn painting I really liked.  cow wall paint

I actually think the weathered look adds to the appearance of the painting.

Thursday Doors – October 19, 2017

See the gray rectangle toward the top of the building?

Yep…that’s a door.


I think it takes a special employee to clock in on time every day….when faced with this obstacle!!IMG_3888
