Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): Greatest Love of All

The past couple of weeks, Cee has been posting different songs to inspire those joining the CFFC Challenge.

This week’s song is by Whitney: “Greatest Love of All”

The lines that inspired this post:

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CBWC): WEATHER

Very happy that I found a photo for the CBWC this week.

Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) # 9: Three Sides of a Kiosk

Yet another great Photo Challenge, co-hosted by the fabulous Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao.

Self still playing catch-up (The Challenge is now up to Week 12).

Today, self is focusing on the kiosk just outside the Redwood City Public Library. Each side depicts a different scene. This is also an appreciation post for public libraries — books kept her sane during the pandemic. And they will carry her through the coming fall and winter’s uncertainties.

Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: 2 September 2021

Self planted this right next to her Fourth of July rose (and forgot what it’s called). After the Fourth of July stops blooming, early summer, this vine starts blooming. It’s a very homely flower, but it’s the only thing (other than the Agapanthus) blooming in her backyard right now.

Thanks to Cee Neuner for the FOTD Challenge!

Photographing Public Art Challenge (#8): Halloween Swag

Self still playing catch-up!

Halloween’s just around the corner. There was a time when self’s house was mobbed by roving bands of children, but now the neighborhood’s aged (so has she) and she mourns those times.

Still, the neighbors do have a very good Halloween game!

Thanks to hosts of the PPAC Challenge, Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao.

Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) # 7: Central Coast

Self still playing catch-up on the Photographing Public Art Challenge, co-hosted by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao, which she adores.

She just completed a road trip to the Central Coast. She loves doing road trips because it’s a break from the unrelenting heat in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Agapanthus (Again)

Self is pretty sure she’s already used agapanthus for Cee’s FOTD, as soon as they started blooming. Now, her backyard’s looking a bit parched, most of the blooms are blown, except for one. She tried photographing from different angles: back and front. In the end, she liked her first shot the best, because you can really see the silky-looking texture of the blue petals.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Planting from Seed

Self has never successfully grown anything from seed.

Nevertheless, this week, she will try planting sweetpeas. Fingers crossed.

Posting for Cee Neuner’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge, 20 August 2021: Cambria Plant Nursery

The nursery is just off the main road to Cambria. Self visited for the first time a few days ago. Highly recommend to anyone who’s in that neck of the woods. The nursery is large! And filled with plants of every type.

Decided to make this, rather than a specific flower, the Flower of the Day, Aug. 20.

As always, thank you to Cee Neuner for hosting the FOTD challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): “Here Comes the Sun”

Prompt is from the Beatles song, sung by George Harrison.

Thanks to Cee Neuner for the prompt. You can find the full lyrics on her blog.

I chose my inspiration from the refrain:

Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right.

I have a collection of solar lanterns. My newest one is a bright, butter-yellow.
