Some of my favorite thingsPosted: April 28, 2012
Karma’s Photo Hunt this month is to photograph four of your favorite things. I thought this would be really easy, but that turned out not to be true. I have so many favorite things (and yes, that would include brown paper packages tied up with string…lol!) that I couldn’t make a decision about which four to feature. I’ve cheated a bit by making some collages (with some new photos, but most from the archives) under general categories that have allowed me to include lots of my favorite things. Since Karma specifically said “things,” I have not included people. My family, of course, are tops on any list, but they are not things and that eliminated them automatically. It made it easier for me, too, because none of them (as far as I know) wish to appear on the blog. I don’t know why not. I might make them rich and famous. Okay, maybe not. I don’t have that much blog traffic (another reason for them not to worry about showing their mugs around here).
The collage up above features one of my most favorite of things: The pond and the land here at Breezy Acres, in all seasons and all times of the day. Even when I’m complaining about the weather, I love it here.
The second (these are really in no particular order, but I point out the order so you’ll know which collage I’m going on about) is food and cookery (“cookery” defined as the art and practice of cooking). Tea, my favorite beverage, falls under the food category so I included it in this collage.
Nature is next. I know putting it that way is very broad, but I love nature and being outdoors. In a way, this is a double category of favorite things as I enjoy photographing nature, too, so this collage represents both nature and photography for me.
Last of the four required, but by no means least, traveling is one of my favorite things. Whether M and I are journeying as local tourists or traveling farther from home, I thoroughly enjoy getting out and about and seeing new places. I also enjoy exploring some of the same old places because there are always new discoveries to make. Traveling also encompasses two categories because it frequently involves another of my favorite activities: Exercise. Our travels almost always involve hiking, walking, biking, or swimming.
This last collage is a hodgepodge of a few more of my favorite things, some of them obvious, some of them representations of things such as spending time with family and friends. No post on some of my favorite things would be complete without music. (Go ahead and click. You might enjoy it.)
I was going to
steal borrow a few photos from Karma to get those bonus points, but have run out of time on this busy Saturday (when I shouldn’t be posting at all, but wanted to participate in this challenge). I think I can name a few: Photography, summer, cherry tomatoes, and her one week family vacation in Maine. How’d I do, Karma?
Thanks for stopping by for this extra post. Today is the deadline for Karma’s April Photo Hunt, but she’s been known to bend the rules a little if you ask and need a few extra days. I’m off to enjoy some blues at a local Blues Challenge. What are you up to today?
