As you read earlier, this weeks topic is for you to guess. Once again I had the "ideal" photo in my head but my cat wasn't cooperating. So I decided to take a photo of someone who didn't have a choice but to cooperate...ME. Good luck figuring it out :)

How should I be punished? Already have, Erica got to it first. I was saving the letter idea until there was a topic I couldn't visualize. Thanks Erica.
Let me start out by saying, if you go back to week #1 when we first started this whole adventure, you will see in the rules that we are to do as the hat tells us to do. So, by all rights, Adam cheated in a sense, broke the rules. I do feel there should be some sort of punishment for this that benefits me of course :) But, with all of that being said, I really had fun with this weeks challenge. I wasn't sure when Adam first wrote to photographer "blue wonder" or "wonder blue" what in the world I was going to photograph. How do you photograph "blue wonder". My first thought was to go to a lake and photograph God's blue wonder, but that seemed just blazay. Then it came to me. I will do a spin off from a challenge Adam gave himself a couple years ago when we went to Charleston. I will spell out the word wonder with things that are blue! So, tonight after work, I wandered around the house and collected blue things that would help me spell wonder. And this is the final product. I'm happy with it and for the first time in a while, I had FUN doing it!!! :)

So by now you figured out that when we pull a topic out of the hat, the first question is "was that yours or mine?". A week or so back we pulled the topic "something blue" and Erica asked 'that was mine wasn't it?' and I had to say no. Then we realized that there was another "Blue" in the hat. Well thats the topic I pulled this weekend, but I didn't like it, we just did blue, so I pulled another topic, "wonder" so I am throwing down the challenge-lets combine the two and have to get really creative and come up with a photo of 'blue wonder' or 'wonder blue'. I am down for the challenge Erica are you?

I heard that many people follow our blog, fans if you will. You tune in every week to see what Erica and I have taken photos of. I thank you for that, it keeps us going knowing that we have you out there, we don't want to let our 'fans' down. So today I am going to share a co-workers blog with you. Dan and his wife both suffer from MS, and write this blog together. A few weeks back I got the invite to join the couple for dinner, and I couldn't pass up that chance. Now I want to share their blog with you so you can get the chance to know them, it will touch your heart-trust me.

They say as long as your head and feet are warm, you whole body will be warm; thus the socks. I didn't know how I was going to photograph the socks, then it hit me-lets nail them to the wall. I stared at the wall for a bit mulling over ways to do this. Should they go or across? I settled on across, it made sense to me this way, cause you walk on the ground. Then I tried a few things, a few angles, flash or no flash and we ended up with this jewel. It's a photo of some socks I don't have matches for nailed to my wall.

I now understand that home is where you lay your head at night. I really do hate my apartment; it's small, it smells, it's dark, I can hear all my neighbors coming and going, - I could go on about my dislike of Apt. L, but I won't. At the end of a long day or trip back from G.R. it is a good feeling to know that you are home. When I walk thru the doors that let me into my Apt. and I lock the door behind me, I see this and feel like I at home, it's not ideal-far from it, but I feel at home.
