A stray among other things

Shiver me timbers! Where in the world did the month of July go? Oh that’s right – it melted away – like the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz.

I have a few more photos from the PhotoFun series – choosing a photo seems to be getting harder. Or maybe I’m just getting pickier. In any case, here’s the next batch.

Day 23: Black & White

We came across this house about the time I began this project and remembered the eons I spent in the dark room smelling all the chemicals associated with developing film and photos. (Maybe that’s how I got this way.) Now I just change the setting on my camera and - Viola! Black & white!


Day 24: Love

I couldn’t decide about LOVE. It can be so big and also small. As a concept and as a photo. So, take your pick – of these ‘love’ photos.



Day 25: Citrus

Strays – ya gotta love ‘em. This poor little lime lost his way and ended up with the lemons and oranges. It’s the wild ones that are hard to rein in.


Day 26: Favorite Color

Day 26 was Favorite Color. It seems everyone has one. For as long as I can remember, mine has always been blue –even when I didn’t know it. Believe me, I’ve tried to break it off – but it’s just meant to be.


I am saving Day 27: Your Weakness for tomorrow. My weakness has a myriad of components but they all fall under a broad topic. Be forewarned. It won’t be for the faint of heart.


  1. I've been enjoying your photo project.
    Is the fabric on the chair "Starry Night"--a Vangogh print?

  2. @ JB - Good eye! Yes it is. We love it - I mean, you know, as well as you can love upholstery fabric. :)

  3. Love the black and white house photo. I am building a haunted dollhouse and have been painting to get this exact effect! Wonderful!

  4. I just love the black and white photo of the old house. Go for it gal.

  5. Your photographs are wonderful. I really like the black and white one and the one of the chair fabric.

  6. Love seeing all your photos, especially rebellious limes, you're right, they can be such a PITA to tame. Still a cai pirhina works pretty well ;o)

    In love with that chair. My favourite colour is also blue - funny story, a friend recently told me I wore too much blue (which was interesting as I pretty much wear all the colours of the rainbow in the office where we work). We were in a fabric shop, and I was buying fabric to make pretty things for me to wear, so I told her she could choose anything she liked for me in the entire shop with my last £20. What did she choose? Yup, blue lol She says, in her defence, it has giant white and orange flowers on it, but really, it's mainly blue ;o)

  7. @ otterine - If you can paint your house to look like this one, that would be quite an accomplishment. I like the old peeling paint too.

    @ Kays Kids - You have good company!

    @ maddyrose - Thanks so much. They're my favorites too.

    @ Katy - It's a good color for you. Maybe that's why I like the fabrics you choose. Glad you like the chair. It was a pretty bold choice when I picked it - you know, famous artist, fabric, specific design - but hey, we like it.
