Picture This 2011

The gals from Picture Winter have started a Face Book page to continue our photo prompts. It's a lot different, no pressure. You can post each day or just when you want. I like getting the daily prompt, they keep my mind working. And, of course, I get to see all their gorgeous photos. I've done some of them so I decided I would show you my latest prompt pictures.

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
I chose to use a photo I had taken sending the sign of love to my grandsons. I took it one day when I was out shooting photos of shadows on the snow.

I SEE THE LIGHT
I found this dead branch that had fungus growing on the end. I love the way the light makes it almost seem translucent.

YUMMY, YUMMY IN MY TUMMY
My grandsons were coming to visit, so I ran to the store to pick up a few things and to buy them Valentines. I knew I wasn't going to have a lot of time so I snapped a picture of this tin of candy. It's really a metal tin, so pretty. Love has everything to do with it...love for my family and yes my love for chocolate!!


MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL
I got brave on this one and took a self-portrait in a mirror. I hate to have my picture taken, so this was hard for me. I don't know why we shy away from the camera. We love to take photos of others. Someday, someone may want to see what I looked like in 2011. So, here it is!!

BRIDGING THE GAP
This is an old abandoned railroad trestle that bridges the gap made by a small creek. It looks quite different from underneath. I like that old spike sticking out. It's on the right side of the photo close to the bottom.

ME, MYSELF, AND I
Here's another shot of me. I am getting brave. This photo tells who I am. I love to quilt, scrapbook, makes cards, collect children's books and read. I took several shots...hated all of them!!! On the last shot, for some reason I laughed and this I think it captured the real me. I do laugh a lot. I'm a pretty upbeat person! 


SEEING RED
I was all tucked in waiting for the big snow that was coming on Wednesday. Looked around the house of reds. I like red, I just don't have a lot. I'm working on a red and white quilt, but that just wasn't inspiring me. When I opened my pantry there was a red Coke box, a red bag of Hershey Kisses and a red Pringles can. Perfect! Three of my bad habits all dressed in red!!


AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH
This prompt was extremely hard. You see, I'm snowed in...there are no mountains in sight...I don't have any photos of mountains in my archives on the computer...so what do I do? Get creative. I went out side and took this shot of, guess what, a rock in my shade garden. Well, it is a mountain for a little ant!! Right!! I laughed when Mr. H. said I should have place a small toy person at the bottom so it would look more like a tall mountain!!
Hope you enjoyed my photos!! Right now, I don't want the pressure of taking a photo for a class everyday. For this project we sometimes just dig into our archives. I just want to keep the creative juices flowing!
