#6 Photo-a-Day: December 2015

It seems I missed day #5!

Here is Day #6 which shows my final effort in this year’s Christmas decorations. I have enjoyed playing with purposely moving the camera (in this case, my phone!) to get those lines of movement but I was also taken by the “glow” of the colors on the wall.




#3 Photo-a-Day: December 2015

I let today’s real shot go by un-photographed…I was in the subway on my way to work standing near the door looking down the row of seats. Miraculously, there was no one on an electronic device! And even more surprising there were 2 things in my line of sight at once:  a man right next to me not only reading the newspaper, but using a pen doing the crossword puzzle. And further down in the row of seats there was a young girl – maybe about 9 or 10 years old – engrossed in reading a book! How I wanted to get out the phone and take a photo! But my reservations about invading personal space took over and I just looked and smiled – and moved on as my stop approached and the rest of the work day took over. But that image stays with me.

So what is today’s photo? Way back, when I got my first camera, I used to challenge myself to take images right at home without the fascinating location or the special people or event. So that’s what I did this evening. I sat and said “Oh no! I didn’t take a photo today! What am I seeing from here that I could photograph?” So here it is – my photo of the day:


#1 Photo-a-Day: December 2015


This is a Christmas ornament that I saw in a shop in Wurstboro, NY with a mind-blowing amount of beautiful things. I want to accept the challenge of a photo-a-day but I am adding on my own challenge of writing  a line or a caption to go with it. It will remain “all about the image” but I will add a small amount of text – a word, a line, a short paragraph – to go with it or inspired by it.
