CMMC: January Pick a Topic

A few pictures in response Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – January Pick a Topic from [Her] Photo. All three of my photos were taken when I was in Montana visiting my parents in November and December. My topics: yellow, river, and clouds.

Yellow Building: Clarks Fork National Bank, Fromberg, MT. Photo: TLClark, 11/2020.

I took the picture of Clarks Fork National Bank in Fromberg because of the mural. But the yellow color of the building made it my first choice for Cee’s challenge.

These two pictures were taken at Riverfront Park in Billings. It was a beautiful December morning and I thoroughly enjoyed wandering the trails and traipsing along the Yellowstone River. Figuring out which river picture to share for the challenge was a challenge itself!

On my way back to the parking lot, I paused to take pictures of the sky over the pond. Clouds over trees and water seem to fit Cee’s challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow

It’s Thursday already!  I bought a new cup and saucer at the Iowa State Fair the other day and was thinking I should photograph it for Nancy Merrill’s challenge Still Life (sort of)  But it’s Thursday and she has a new challenge:  Yellow.

Since the cup holds plain old Lipton tea in the morning and there is an open package of lemon sandwich cookies on the counter, here’s one effort.

Another thought:  add honey!

Looking at the pictures after-the-fact, I realize I should have experimented with some different light.  Always learning!

Having finished my attempt at Still Life Sort Of plus Yellow, I took the cup of tea to my desk.  It’s my favorite picture of the morning.
