Mushroom Mania

With this post, I’m going to be killing two birds with one stone. The Daily Post prompt for today is mushrooms – and I happen to love photographing mushrooms, and I’ve been photographing them for years. And Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge this week is M (must have two M’s in the word – and Mushroom is perfect)! So here comes a variety of God’s mushroom creations! 🙂




Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos Challenge – Bonus Post!

Thank you to Miriam from The Shower of Blessings for nominating me for the Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge! The challenge: Post seven black and white photos, no people, no explanation, of everyday life. These are the runner-ups that almost got chosen to be featured for a day, but I decided to go with a different photo, but I thought they deserved an honorable mention:

Photographer By Day, Novelist By Night

It is week forty-four of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. 🙂 If you’d like to join in, just click the link! 😉

Photographer at heart
Was almost ready to depart,
I’d gathered the supplies.

Cameras, film, and a backpack,
Going old school, memories taking me back,
Traveling to the airport, almost makes me cry.

Going to many exotic places,
Where I’ll see many faces –
That is all well and good,

But I do not want to explore,
I want to be home more,
In my own neighborhood!

Is that really so bad?
That right now, traveling makes me sad?
That in pajamas I want to stay?

And crash on the sofa and vent,
Especially during this event,
Trying to write a novel in only thirty days!
