Thursday Trios:

Carol (Mama) Cormier started a challenge inviting us to post trios of items in pictures. For some reason that has been hard for me to find. Now, whenever I take photographs, I see how I can group them into threes. I’m starting to build my collection.

Saturday, we visited a new friend we met at the Touchmark Car Show. She had many things arranged in threes and I started rudely taking pictures as soon as I walked into her house. She’s a photographer, too and knew I was going to bring my camera to take pictures of their other classic car. (Just providing a defense for my bad behavior.)

Linda made some delicious marmalades for us to try, and had them all set out on her counter. I could tell she was a decorator and was accustomed to photographing still life pictures.

“Trios,” I exclaimed telling her about this photo challenge.

As I started taking pictures, she gently rearranges the bottles.

It seemed trios appeared everywhere I looked.

I’m playing with my new Photoshop subscription. I’m learning about Bridge from Cee Neuner. Today I sprinkled a black filter around the top edges of this photo to block out the background and I cropped it with one quick checkmark. Thank you Cee! πŸ™‚

Going Strong!

    • Thank you, Cee. I’m starting to collect them now. The new camera in action! (before the new lens.) I took some fun ones last night I can’t wait to share. πŸ™‚


    • Thanks, Robbie. I credit my new camera – recommended by Cee, my new subscription to Photoshop for Photographers-recommended by Cee, and my new friend, Linda for arranging everything so photogenically. πŸ™‚ That leaves pushing a button to my credit! LOL

  1. I love your trios, Marsha! When I was a summer student, I worked in a litle gift shop on the Canada/US border. We always had to display small items in groups of 3 (or 5 if really small). Never ever in 2s or 4s! πŸ˜€

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.
