Thursday Trios: Prescott Touchmark Car Show

….join the fun and post any photos of trios that you’ve taken

Mama Cormier

It seems that most things occur naturally in pairs, unless you are a decorator, then you need trios for balance. Since my balance is bad, and I’m not a decorator, I struggle even thinking in trios, but I adore my blogging friend Carol who hosts Thursday Trios.

Be creative if you feel like it, and fun with this challenge this week. Remember your photos needs to be black and white, desaturated, sepia (brown tones) or selective color.  I’m looking forward to seeing what you all come up.

I’m also submitting this for CBWC: trees and tree parts. You can’t live this close to the Prescott National Forest and not have a tree in every picture. Besides it’s Becky B’s #TreeSquare month.

Prescott Car Show – Touchmark #2

Okay, honestly, I also want to show off a few more of my Touchmark Car Show pictures because I handed out my new ID card to people to check on my blog for their pictures. I’m not selling anything, but a lot of times people ask me why I’m taking pictures. Just telling them you blog makes most of their eyes cloud over. The ID card is an easy fix. It doesn’t have any contact information but my blog so I don’t get overwhelmed nor do they.

Before the mini-monsoon that hit after noon, the temperature was a mild 92 or so in the shade.

Only one smart person in the bunch.

This might also be a tent show. Three observers discuss the possibilities. About every third car around Prescott is a Jeep. Or at least in this post that’s the ratio. Remember playing the Bug game when you saw a Volkswagen Beetle? We play Jeep Jeep.

I wondered how I was going to use the blind shot taken of the name when I didn’t get the whole name. You can really see the pearlized effect that Jim and Linda added when they repainted the car the original color plus pearl. Yummy!

You wouldn’t trust you luck with a pair of three’s in Yatzee or Poker, but in a Mustang all rules are different.

  1. I’m always amazed at the turnout at car shows, Marsha. I would be that lady sitting down, LOL! Our friend who stopped by two months ago had that same tent on his Toyota FJ. He’s been camping in Montana. Pretty cool rig. I’m looking forward to hosting WQW next week and even have a bird weekly post combining with freedom scheduled for tomorrow. You’re going to love it!

    • Thanks, Cee. You know what would be helpful is to create a list of Challenge Key Words, common theme that challenge hosts often run, to help newbies organize their photos with tags. In fact, if might be a great post to invite any hosts out there that would like to contribute.


    • That sound like my husband now. He had one for a while, but sold it. It was fun, but not fun enough to strap yourself down in my opinion. I never drove it.


  2. I love your comparison photos. The black and white go awesome with the subjects! You have some really awesome business cards and now you are out and about handing them out. Woohoo! We’ve seen those tent systems at REI which is one of our favorite stores. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
