The current theme for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge is Words that Have the Letter “O” Anywhere in the Middle. Finding the first picture of a Sunflower with its Shadow and Pollen felt a like a triple win when browsing my digital files.
The globe in front of the Agricultural Building on the Iowa State Fairgrounds rotatesrandomly as it floats on water. When I look at the second picture of the globe, I see a hand (upside down South America) holding a heart (reflection of building and trees).
Thinking of hearts, here’s an old picture of heart-shaped cookie cutters.
These spools of thread were set up on embroidery machines to embroider logos on mattress coverings at Brooklyn Bedding in Mesa, Arizona.
When the words “Crayola Crayons” crossed my mind this morning, I knew I’d have to dig out the boxes of color crayons for a picture. I think that the old box of 16 was in a care package I received when I was in college way back when!
This picture of an old church was my first thought when I saw the photo for September’s Pick a Topic for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. Her picture is of a roof with small structures on top that need a coat of paint.
My next thought was to take pictures of bell towers (didn’t happen). Then I thought of roof structures in general, perhaps ones with triangular shapes.
It wasn’t until this morning – five days after the challenge was issued – that I thought of a more general theme of “weathered.”
Since I was walking at Big Creek State Park, I turned my camera to picnic tables and grills.
Knowing I would find all kinds of things to photograph at the Iowa State Fair in mid-August, I looked ahead at Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenges to have something in particular to watch for. Prize winning vegetables in the Agricultural Building fit September’s color challenge: dark green.
