Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week is Purples.
This week the color is purples. Any shade of purple is allowed in this challenge. So show me your new photos of purple or some of your old favorite photos which are purple. Have tons of fun with this challenge this week.
I had already spent most of afternoon wandering through the San Francisco Botanical Garden, taking pictures of nearly everything I saw. When I noticed the sign saying ‘Garden of Fragrance,’ I was tempted to pass it by — “Oh, it’s just a bunch of flowers.”
Don’t get me wrong! I like flowers, and I can even tell you the names of a few of them. It’s only been within the last year that I discovered how much fun it is to photograph the really colorful blooms I encounter on my hikes around my neighborhood.
But on this day I was warm, my feet were pretty tired and sore — I’d already spent the morning exploring the Japanese Tea Garden and the California Academy of Sciences — and it was almost time for me to call for a Lyft back to my hotel.
Then again, when would I get another chance to visit this amazing place? I turned and retraced my steps and entered the Garden of Fragrance. And it really was beautiful!
This week’s topic is Eyes. Eyes have such an expression in animals and humans. Have fun with this challenge this week. Use your imagination if you want for this theme. The thing is to have a lot of fun with this challenge.
I was sitting at my desk one morning when I suddenly had the very strange feeling I was being watched!
There are usually squirrels in our trees and I sometimes enjoy watching their antics outside my window — but this time it was the squirrel checking me out!
This week, share your own interpretation of “edge.” Take a photo from an actual edge, like a balcony, a window, or a seaside bluff (wherever you are, stay safe!). Focus on a sharp angle or object, or show us the outer margins of a building, a face, or a book.
This was my first visit to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park since sometime in the early 1970s, and I chose the Japanese Tea Garden as my first stop.
I remembered struggling as a child to climb up over this bridge, and now I’d finally returned for another chance! Still, I hesitated — I felt a little silly climbing it all on my own, surrounded by small kids and giggling young couples.
But once the crowd drifted away, I knew I might never have this opportunity again… so up I climbed!
It wasn’t much easier as an adult than it had been all those years ago — but the view was well worth the effort!
