TGIFFF – Tonguely Doesn’t Want to Get Out of Bed and Fishy Friday is Back

….all this rain is keeping poor Tonguely in bed and as a special request Kevin has resurrected Fishy Friday (for now anyway)

I thought frogs liked the rain. It seems that Tonguely has other ideas and would rather stay under the covers. I can’t say I blame him.

One of my blogging friends asked me if Kevin ever drew fish. I totally forgot that he started with fish long before Monster Monday and Wacky Bird Wednesday. To my surprise he drew a new fish. So here it is Judy, just for you.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Reimagine Orange

…thanks to Sandy from the Sandy Chronicles for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

I could look for ‘orange’ items or re-image some older photos to take on an orange hue. All these photos were orange to begin with with one exception. Can you guess which one was altered? They were all edited somewhat but one changed colour completely.

Lens Artists Challenge – #86 – Treasure Hunt

….thanks to Travels and Trifles  for this week’s theme

This week’s theme is very long and detailed so I’m cutting and pasting the instructions here:

This week we’re going on a Treasure Hunt! The challenge is to search for specific items – either from your archives or newly captured – from the list below. Extra credit items are a bit more challenging. Focus on quality over quantity and hit us with your best shot(s)!  

  • Challenge Items: Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall
  • Extra Credit Items:  An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image. My opening image, for example, includes a sunrise, a seascape and birds in a single shot. See how easy it is?! 😀

My favourite portrait of my granddaughter.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Close-up

….thanks to Lens-Artist Photo Challenge for this week’s theme

Yesterday I went to the Toronto Zoo and took my Panasonic Lumix camera with the wide angle lens. I had a little bit of difficulty with the settings but I did manage to get some interesting close-ups of some of the animals.P1070440
