Okay, so the last challenge was a bust! Only a few pictures, darn it! I will have to try that one again because I actually DID take one to post, but didn't get it in on time and I think there are so many wonderful interpretations for it. But thanks to those who DID participate.

I am going to start highlighting our feature photographers again and get some of the other things up and running. My daughter just started school (kindergarten....wipe a tear!!) and I think we are settling into a little routine I am hoping we can bring back a lot of wonderful things this blog has been missing.

For this challenge, let's see some GREEN.

What does that word mean to you? Lots of ways to interpret and show this!! Let's see it! In by tomorrow night...let's see those pictures and be sure to comment!

Colors of School

Every year when school arrives I become a giddy school girl myself. I LOVE school supplies. The smell of a new box of crayons, filling up a backpack, organizing and re-organizing new supplies. Ahh... It's wonderful. That was one of the things that I looked forward to when my daughter became old enough for school.... buying new school supplies.

School of Spirit

This place is definitely a school to me. It struck me even more this week, as my sister in law got to go here for the first time yesterday, and will be married here tomorrow. It truly is a place of great learning!

Shutter speed: .003s
Apurature: f/7.1
ISO: 125
Took it to picasa, warmed, added saturation, and cropped some.

Also, since I gave that teaser....oh, about a month ago, I'll spill. ;) The baby in this belly of mine is a BOY! I've got a lot of learning ahead of me for that, too!


Given that my last semester of my Bachlors degree was Research Methods and given a similar topic to these books I feel that the title is in order. But school/research come to mind. CC always please!!! And as always see the rejects :)

The Backpack

When I think of school the giant, tacky, brightly colored, plastic backpack (like the one my daughter picked out this year) always comes to mind. Maybe it's because when I was little, picking out my backpack was the highlight of back to school shopping. Yup, the larger and tackier the bag, the happier I was ;).

Challenge: School

It's getting to be that time of year...and I thought it would be appropriate to see everyone's take on SCHOOL.

What does this mean to you? How does it make you feel?

Let's see those pics--turned in by TOMORROW at midnight! :)

"Wasting" TIME

Sometimes I wish I was two again, where the only care in the world was how
many circles you could make dipping a newly picked flower in the lake.
Where "Wasting Time" was absolutely, perfectly wonderful.
