Mittened Hands – This photograph has so many different patterns on the buildings.  It is crazy, but awesome.

Pursuit of Happiness – I adore all the textures and patterns in this photo from the bricks in the buildings to the leaves.

Wandering Iris – Iris has such a great variety of everyday items that have patterns.  I adore her photograph of the corn on the cob.

Conversations Around the Tree – Three very different photographs and the patterns are all so wonderful.  I really enjoyed the middle photo.

wtf Am I on About Now? – A gorgeous vase with some real beautiful designs in sepia tones.

Whisperings – Has a small gallery of some very wonderful shapes.  I really like the first and last photos.

This week’s topic is Walk 100 Steps and Take New Photos.

You don’t literally have to take 100 steps.  This challenge is all about taking a new photo.  It can be as simple as picking up your camera and capturing your immediate area.  If you want to get to a specific destination first, then take your steps you are allowed to do that.  Use your imagination and creativity with this topic.  I hope you have a lot of fun with the topic.

Upcoming Topics

  • Lines and Angles
  • Glass:  Anything from a shot glass to a stained glass window
  • Lights
  • Open Topic
  • Fences
  • Shoes or Feet

This challenge accepts the following types of photography:

  • Black and white photography
  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white.

Hopefully you will have a lot of fun with this challenge and find your creative eye will be expanded.  Here are a couple tips and tricks posts I have done specifically for black and white photography.

ENJOY and have FUN.

My entry this week

I just took a walk in back yard and in my house.  I tried to get something different than I usually take.  I hope you enjoy.

      1. Cee, I have too much to deal with right now. Life just doesn’t want to slow down. SO much new I must learn. I would love to play along and I do thank you for the invite. When life becomes the um norm, whatever that is, I should have a few extra moments to play. Unreal! (((HUGS))) Amy


  1. Very easy to be able to sense the sharpness of the leaf edge and then the softness of the yarn in the art work . That’s clever Cee !


  2. Do you see the horse in the cherry leaves picture? One of the knotholes is the eye and another the nose. Being so blind lets me see shapes in clouds and other ordinary objects, sort of like seeing Jesus in burnt toast. :0


  3. The fence photo really caught my eye. If you block the lower half, I see a pony face coming thru the forest (eye on the left, mane hanging down on the right, cherry leaves are the forest). And apparently, reading the other comments – I’m not the only one! 🙂
