Sonel’s Corner Photo Editing Challenge: Song Title

The year was 1967. I was a senior in high school. There was so much fabulous music then — and it’s still popular today. I did like this song then and still like it now even though I could never claim it as a complete favorite. But I heard this song recently and it has not left my head since! And now Sonel has given me the chance to put it to paper and maybe get it out of my head! For those of you who are young, you may not figure out right away what I’ve photographed!



The next two were edited with Fotor



I’ve been Feelin Groovy (59th Street Bridge Song, Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon, 1967) with a little Laugh In thrown in for fun! (And, yes, I watched the original episodes of Laugh In, not reruns, and I have them on DVD!) Enjoy!

Draped Lady – Fragile and Vintage!

There are two challenges this week that I felt that my post would fit. So I just had to do it this way!

The first challenge is Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote — Fragile.   My mother always had the most beautiful items in her home when I was growing up. This piece was always one of my favorites. I’m sure that she was always so nervous that I was going to break some of her items because I was fascinated by them. I am so happy that I didn’t break it because now it’s mine! The Draped Lady flower frog was produced by Cambridge Glass in the 1920s and 1930s.

Guard your fragile life carefully.  Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.

Photo-Editing Challenge: Trees and/or Tree Trunks

The Week 11 challenge on Sonel’s Photo-Editing Challenge is Trees and/or Tree Trunks.  I immediately thought of this pictures I captured a couple of months ago on my iPhone 5 while out yard saling.  It struck me as so odd and so Determined, that I wanted to use it for this.  If you’re wondering why I highlighted the word Determined, it’s because if you look at the gateway created by the two trees connecting, the space forms the letter D. I thought of way too many captions for this picture, so I’ll let that suffice!  Feel free to chime in your caption thoughts in the comments if you feel so inclined!



There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder the firm resolve of a determined soul.
