Share Your World – 2016 Week 46

Raindrops during the golden hour.
Raindrops during the golden hour.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? 

What kind of TV commercial would you like to make? Describe it.

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

List some fun things for a rainy day.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I sincerely hope you enjoy my questions for this week and find the questions interesting enough to play along.   If you ever want me to ask anything specific, please feel free to contact me.  You don’t think a lot about these questions, unless of course it is FUN for you.  Simply dream and just let loose, or you let your alter ego answer if you want.   Have a fabulous week everyone!!

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

Here is the basic format.  I will ask you:

  • To answer three random questions each week.
  • Respond to a fourth item (I will randomly chose from this list)
    • Making a List out of a topic
    • Completing the sentence I start
    • Answering a Would you Rather question
  • Bonus Question is always the same  “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?”  Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.


Are you a traveler or a homebody?  Right now I am a homebody.  Although the healthier I get, we are venturing out more and more.  We do enjoy traveling and adventuring.  In fact we watched a video of ghost towns in Oregon and are planning a few trips for photo ops.

What kind of TV commercial would you like to make? Describe it.  It would be silent or maybe some soft meditation music and lots of pretty scenery to look at.  I know I could use some chill time in my day and I think other people would to.

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name. Creative and charismatic

List some fun things for a rainy day.  

Note:  I added this question because we’ve been fairly rainy lately.

  • I adore rain and if it isn’t a down pour go on a photo shoot is my first thought.
  • Spend time with Chris talking.
  • Cross-stitch.
  • Blog.
  • Watch a movie.
  • Watch what we call Brain Food like anything to do with weather, earth sciences, photography, etc.
  • Photograph old cemeteries if only drizzling.
  • Look for rainbows.
  • Catch up on letters or email.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  The last couple of weeks have been crazy in my life.  Busy busy busy.  Most of it has been fun, although some of it not so fun.  But hey, life goes on.  On top of being exhausted last week, I did get some rest this past weekend and ready for see what delightful things the universe has in store for me this week.

  1. Oh such lovely questions this week.
    Basically I am a homebody but once I set off I love travel.
    My commercial would be cheesy, sunsets, beach and white horses!
    Nana- N for nice
    Cathy – C for Cheerful.
    Rainy days are for snuggles, tea, reading and knitting.
    Grateful for free library books.

    1. I call you when we go ghost hunting. The eastern part of Oregon has some old gold mine ghost towns which still (in 2005) had buildings left standing that you could actually walk around and go into. Photographers dream.

  2. Don’t those ducks have sense enough to get in out of the rain? Geez! They must be domesticated. I love finding ghost towns- or even an old building somewhere. There’s an excitement about it and you can weave all kinds of stories out of what you find. Hope you hit the trail soon.

  3. I think Suzanne and I learned our lesson about visiting a cemetery when it was drizzling. It turned out to be quite spooky. Swing by and check out my post here
    Thanks for hosting Share Your World.

  4. I’m glad you are feeling better. Looking for rainbows always lift one’s spirit. Do you share your photos taken in cemeteries with one of the web sites online? I like your idea for a commercial. I’d watch it!

  6. Cee, when you get that commercial made, sign me up! Also, I remember driving through Shaniko, Oregon on one of my childhood road trips. I can still picture the schoolhouse.

    Photography question: How do you manage photographing in the rain? Do you have a cover for your camera? Do you use an umbrella? We got caught in the rain in Yellowstone. Fortunately I had some gallon zip-lock bags in the car (go figure) and slid my camera into one of those between shots, then dried it off when we got back to the car. The camera body is weatherproof, though the lenses are not. I worry about the moisture.


    1. I remember seeing Shaniko on the show I watched. Definitely looks like a place to explore and photograph.
      Rain. that can be an issue. My camera is water proof (not for under water) but from rain. So the hardest thing I have is keeping the lens dry. I wouldn’t use an umbrella unless you have someone to hold it for you. With the darker lighting that rain brings, you should really be using two hands to steady your camera. A plastic bag works well as long as you can keep it from getting into your frame. I usually have a lose fitting coat and keep my camera around my neck buried in the coat so it only gets wet when I’m taking a photo. If it is really dumping, I don’t take photos. One thing you can try too, take photos from inside the car and zoom out. It protects your camera from getting too wet. Although it does limit what you can photograph.
