Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Photograph Something New.

Posted on Updated on

I’m always fascinated by Cee’s Fun Photo Challenges, and this one from November just made me think, so I decided to give it another go.  Here are the photos I took this week when I visited the Buffalo Soldier Monument at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is Changing Seasons; and, I’ve found no place more convenient for watching the season’s change than my own backyard.  My house looks out over a forested park and I can watch the seasons change from day to day, from the change in the colors of the foliage, to the presence or absence of animals that inhabit the large forest that serves as my backyard.

The leaves have almost all fallen, creating a carpet of golden grown in which the naked trees stand like lonely sentinels.
