Photo Friday - 'Sexy'

Just about decided to sit this week out, but then remembered this one:

What to get Mom?

Plus, Mother's Day is fast approaching, so consider this a public service announcement for all you children out there who are having trouble coming up with that perfect gift.

SPC - Square - #4

Final week of the 'Square' challenge for SPC.

My desk calendar this year is a page-a-day Tangram. It gives a shape every day into which one must fit the seven 'tans' as they are called, exactly into the given shape.

It's been fun and, occasionally, a challenge.

I had another SPC contribution ready for this final week when it occurred to me today that the tans can be formed into a square and, furthermore, one of the tans is, in actual fact, a square.



...and since I mentioned it and it was ready, anyway, here's an alternate:

SPC - Square - #1

SPC - Square - #1

The challenge theme for Self Portrait Challenge for April is 'Square.'

Simple enough.

This was taken last week on our Spring Break trip to Gatlinburg, TN/Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

I found this window inside the cabin of Noah 'Bud' Ogle during our hike on Thursday. There happened to be a mantle directly across the room from this window at the right height to set a camera there -- and with the 'Square' theme coming up, this scene was just begging for a self portrait.

BTW -- Here's an outside look at the cabin in which this photo was taken:

The window you see there is the same one in the self portrait (only from the inside).

More Smoky Mountain photos coming. Just have to sort through 1400 of them, or so. :-)
