What’s For Dinner?

Okay, maybe not that chicken, but every time I remember to photograph what we’re having, it’s too late. You get the idea. Other ingredients include, but are not limited to:

Lettuce from the garden, and fresh mint:

For Nancy’s Merrill’s Photo a Week challenge: What’s for dinner?

Weathered and Still Shimmering

The candy shop across the bay, has weathered many storms. Fresh-made caramel and toffee, homemade chocolates and vintage sweets, appeal to kids of all ages – especially this one. Two years ago this island town was hit by a hurricane, and there are signs of devastation everywhere, but the butler on the porch of the candy shop still stands – minus a few fingers, but still sporting a shimmering glow.

(Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge is shimmer. Lens-Artists have prompted worn or weathered.)


New to photography and art, the concept of contrasts (opposites on the colour wheel) is an eye-opener. I had to search through my archives, and recent pics, to discover something fitting. It is easy to see how contrasts add humour to this Hallowe’en costume – colour, shapes and sizes contrasted. (A sad selfie).

Contrasts – reds and greens – makes this Green Heron one of my favourite birds, and no doubt makes the following image so appealing: the pop of red amongst green leaves, along with the subdued tones of the Great Blue Heron, and the mirror-like stillness of the moment captured.

(Thank you to Nancy Merrill for her Photo of the Week challenge: contrasting colours. Your prompts instruct and inspire, Nancy.)
