First things first – Happy Valentine’s Day if I get this done in 35 minutes. Otherwise, make that belated Valentine’s Day.
This week Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge is to find pictures of purple or amethyst. Remember anything with that topic works as long as you don’t copy her exact title.
New Lens-Artist, Sofia, Challenge # 186 is Low Light. So I’m going to try to marry the two into one post.
Of course, I’m sure I will find something purple or in low light or both to play on Cee’s FOTD challenge.
Of course, I’d like to include at least one cell phone photo for John’s Cell Pic Sunday
Finally, I can’t forget to include a few SquareOdds before the month slips away from us.
My Choices for This Week
O hushed October morning mild, Begin the hours of this day slow, Make the day seem to us less brief… Retard the sun with gentle mist; Enchant the land with amethyst…Robert Frost
How is it possible to suspend topaz in one cup of the balance and weigh it against amethyst in the other; or who in a single language can compare the tranquillizing grace of a maiden with the invigorating pleasure of witnessing a well-contested rat-fight?– Ernest Bramah
Some Purples Are SquareOdds and Some Are Princesses
Purple Royalty Traditions Handed Down
Amethyst Flowers Through the Seasons
And all the woods are alive with the murmur and sound of Spring,
And the rose-bud breaks into pink on the climbing briar,
And the crocus-bed is a quivering moon of fire
Girdled round with the belt of an amethyst ring.– Author: Oscar Wilde
Traveling in Purple Style
A Man’s Amethyst Home Is His Castle
Most of my pictures are taken with a cell phone. The numbers have changed over the years from 4 to 6 to 12, not SquareOdds. Sometimes I’ve gotten fancy with my new Sony or Canon Rebel XTi. I’ve had fun sharing them all with you.
Reminder, Then It’s Your Turn
Hope your day was sweet and romantic. Don’t forget this week’s topic for WQW is Love and Romance. Hope to see you there with photos, poems, stories – whatever goes with your favorite quote. Lots of love to all of you, my friends.
