Paula says: Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge that happens every month (one month in colour as part of Thursday’s Special and the following month in black and white as part of Black & White Sunday). You are free to choose whatever traces of the past you can find. It does not have to be a distant one, or rich in history; it can be something personal, or it can even have a human form. Just make sure to post for it before next Thursday and to link to this blog. Happy Thursday!
Stately old homes in towns on the New Jersey Shore. Traces of the past well preserved.
This week Paula’s theme for Thursday’s Special is imitation.
This week Paula invites us to Pick A Word. These are the two I have chosen.
vantage : a place or position affording a good view of something. A position giving a strategic advantage, commanding perspective, or comprehensive view
bifurcated: divided into two branches or parts
This week for Thursday’s Special, Paula asks us to compile our photos from July and August (not just the ones for her challenges, but from all). You may repost all of them, or your favourite ones. The reasons for this are purely selfish. With her holidays and being busy before and after them, she missed quite a lot of our work and would like to catch up in this convenient way.
Here I have chosen some of my favorites from July & August. Looking through them you will see I spent my summer out in nature and at the beach.
This week Paula invites us to explore the word Oddball for Thursday’s Special.
Oddball: a person or thing that is atypical, bizarre, eccentric, or nonconforming, especially one having beliefs that are unusual but harmless. Whimsically free-spirited; eccentric; atypical.
What better place than Times Square New York City and 42nd Street to find some non conformers.
